Joe Draperwrote a review of Absolute Black SRAM Oval Boost148 Direct Mount Traction Chainring on May 21, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Oval isn't for everyone, but everyone should at least give it a shot. If you clock it properly, you'll notice an increase in your pedaling smoothness. It's just that simple! A lot of folks will find that it messes up their rhythm when standing, but it's not particularly difficult to adjust to. The construction and quality of the rings are excellent, but do be aware that they have a very glossy metallic finish. Be sure to let me know if you have any questions!
