Far fewer riders are being paid to use the things this year as opposed to last year...where Osymetric seemed to be paying for most of the big name riders to use them.

Rotor ended up adding round rings to their selection at some point.

Business-wise it was smart, although the rings are a bit overpriced vs. competitors. Supposedly very stiff.
Image-wise it also made them rub off as a bit more realistic, understanding not everyone likes the Q-Rings.

how does this work? we invented superior chain rings so let's start to produce inferior ones as well?
maybe they will write: R-rings make your spin cycle less smooth, makes climbing a b!tch on the legs and helps build up of lactates during hard efforts.
(adapted from their own statement: Q-rings make your spin cycle smoother, make climbing easier on the legs and helps reduce the build up of lactates during hard efforts.)
