    Details

    Ride the oval.

    Absolute Black claims that the Oval Traction Chainring improves rear wheel traction as a result of more consistency throughout the pedal stroke. Each chainring size features its own unique oval profile, which Absolute Black claims maximizes power transfer and smooths the rotation by reducing dead spots and capitalizing on the sweet spots.

    Absolute Black Racing Red

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I added this Oval Chainring to my Niner Jet 9 Carbon to upgrade it. I could feel the difference immediately! The way the ring is mounted sets it up to apply and direct the maximum amount of force available. The pedal stroke starts with the crank at the top of the oval and quickly transitions into what feels like a gentle downward slope which allows you to exert more force with less energy expended! I added it to an Eagle XX1 setup and at 53 years old I can tell I no longer fear the uphill! I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking to improve their ride and I will be adding one to my Cross bike soon. CHEERS!

    Awesome

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I was worried based on reviews of similar oval rings from other manufacturers that I would feel the oval shape in my pedal stroke. Not the case at all. AB's version of Narrow Wide works awesome. I use a 32 tooth on my Remedy 29er with a 46t XT and I feel like I can go all day.
