Spiderless oval chainrings make the spin cycle a lot smoother and are easier on legs while climbing. 32T oval chainring has smallest diameter in dead spot (equivalent of 30T) and biggest in peak power zone (equivalent of 34T). That means you will go faster with an oval 32T chainring compared to a round one! With oval rings you do not generate more power, you just go faster by distributing your leg power smarter. Thing that confuse most people is you will actually feel your stroke to be more "round" with an Oval shape than with a round chainring. This is something you can't imagine and we can't show on website - you have to try it to believe it.
32T oval ring will suit best someone who uses 28, 30 or 32T chainring currently. While pedaling, you will feel quite similar effort to the one riding round 30T ring (as the smallest diameter of the oval is that size), but you will gain the speed similar to riding 32/34T chainring. This ring is for GXP and Long spindle BB30 model(15mm spacer on drive side).
It is ideal for people who climb a lot on 1x10/11 system and singlespeeds!. Oval chainring does not compromise the work of clutch mechanism in rear derailleur(video at the bottom). It also does not require chain tensioner when using in singlespeed application. Riding out of saddle on the uphill will become more pleasant and you will gain more traction!. Ovality of the chainring is only 11%. These chainrings also help you to recover after knee injuries as pedaling becomes smoother and less exhausting.
