Item # ABC000A

Ride oval.

Designed to pair with your Shimano XT or XTR crankset, the Shimano Oval Traction Chainring brings claims of improved rear wheel traction resulting from a more consistent pedal stroke. Absolute Black claims that this oval profile maximizes power transfer and smooths the rotation by reducing dead spots and capitalizing on the sweet spots compared to standard round rings. Each chainring size features its own unique oval profile, but the mud-clearing and chain-retaining narrow-wide tooth profile is universal across sizes.

  • Oval chainrings for Shimano XT and XTR cranksets
  • Unique shape increases pedal efficiency and traction
  • Lightweight and durable aluminum construction
  • Narrow-wide tooth profiles improve chain retention

Works great!

    It feels as though I have picked up a lower gear for climbing with no sacrifice in the higher gears.
