ROTOR Q Ring Oval Outer Chainring
You turn on to the road that rolls out ahead of you and tuck in for an adventure that may last hours. Every muscle movement has been trained to leave it all on the road; nothing gets wasted in this deliberate harmony between drivetrain and forward momentum. We created Q rings 110BCD for your compact cranks based on the concept that you could pedal more efficiently if you could only take greater advantage of your maximum power effort while lessening the time spent in the dead spots of a pedal rotation. Q rings´ subtle but efficient 10% ovality combined with an unprecedented orientation factor yield an improved pedal stroke marked by performance. Choose from 5 Optimum Chainring Positions (OCP) to fine-tune your improved riding experience and go further and faster with less fatigue.
With Q rings you can ride further and faster with less fatigue because you are using your muscles more efficiently. Thanks to their oval shape, Q rings boost cycling performance by varying drivetrain resistance during pedaling inline with the legs' natural strengths and weaknesses. By orienting the narrowing diameter of the oval to the weakest point of the pedal stroke and the widening diameter to the strongest point of the pedal stroke, you can take full advantage of the most-productive part of your pedal rotation (while lessening time spent in the least-productive part).
To upgrade from round rings, we recommend choosing Q rings with the same tooth count. For example, if you currently ride a 52t noQ , then we recommend a 52t Q ring.
