U.K.-based absoluteBLACK is already well-known for its mountain bike chainrings. Now starting in spring 2016, a complete suite of road rings is being added to the product portfolio. Check out this video to learn more.

absoluteBLACK says it’s committed to ensure every rider can benefit from the many ride improving attributes of oval chainrings. Some road riders have a tendency to ‘mash’ their pedals and need help to perfect their spin and smooth out power delivery. Oval rings have been shown to help achieve this goal. absoluteBLACK’s Oval Road chainrings are said to incorporate the optimum ovality to work with human physiology, delivering a spin sensation that feels ‘rounder than round’. Climbing is claimed to take less effort and knee strain is reduced.

The new absoluteBLACK Oval Road Premium chainrings feature an extensive and complex machining process with the goal of producing the best shifting oval chainrings, at the lightest possible weight, without sacrificing strength and the rigidity.

absoluteBLACK has also optimized the timing position of their chainrings ovality to a single fitting option, taking the confusion, uncertainty and guesswork out of fitting oval chainrings.

The new absoluteBLACK Oval Road Premium chainrings are available in a variety of tooth sizes, bolt circle diameters and in Shimano and SRAM crank arm configurations, starting with the Shimano 4bolt/110 bcd shiftable system. All chainrings are anodized in the U.K. A choice of three colors is available; black, grey or red.

    Them things is butt ugly…………….but that’s subjective.

    If they really gave me a real 10% performance boost, I would not care if they had Hello Kitty machined on them. I’d ride them and pass the dork laughing at my rings
