Race Face Oval Cinch Direct Mount Traction Chainring

While we can't verify any particular company's claims of having the best oval shape to optimize pedal stroke, it's always good to have options, and the Absolute Black Race Face Oval Chainring has proven to be a top choice among riders. Claiming improved rear wheel traction as a result of more consistent power throughout the pedal stroke, Absolute Black manufactures each chainring size with its own patented oval profiles for smooth rotation. Made to pair with the Race Face CINCH system, this chainring mounts directly onto the crank and comes in a variety of colors to add some flair to your drivetrain.

Top Quality

I've used it several times

Can’t say for sure the oval makes a difference. I put it on at the beginning of the season so no direct comparison but the quality is 5 stars. No dropped chains or slipping.
