Important

Due to very special offset construction and custom bolts:

  • 30T can only work with 46T and special bolt set 46/30. (bolts included with small ring)
  • 32T can only work with 48T and special bolt set 48/32. (bolts included with small ring).
  • No other combination or mix of rings will work. Due to special mounting construction, aesthetic bolt covers are not offered for this design.
  • absoluteBLACK Only recommends Dura-ace 11-speed chain or Sram Eagle 12-speed chain for proper clearance of mounting tabs.

Advantages of absoluteBLACK sub-compact oval chainrings:

  • 30 and 32T chainrings allow you to climb on your own terms with improved cadence and efficiency.
  • One of a kind special oval shape that helps you climb easier and faster (Patent Pending).
  • No more mashing on long climbs and wishing for bigger cassette.
  • Have you ever had to walk the climb on sportive race? These rings will save you from it.
  • 46/11 or 48/11 is still a big gear to push on the flat. For your daily ride you most likely don't need more.
  • Your pedaling will feel smoother.
  • AB oval reduces stress on knees and helps your legs remain fresher for longer.
  • You will be able to maintain better cadence while climbing.
  • Reduces possibility of leg cramps.

Why absoluteBLACK's oval chainrings work:

Oval chainrings work because a rider does not produce power evenly through a pedal stroke; they maximize the part of the stroke where power is produced and minimize resistance where it isn't. Oval rings make the spin cycle a lot smoother and are easier on legs while climbing. Believe it (or not), but a round chainring doesn't transfer torque to your rear wheel as smoothly as an Oval one. You will actually feel your stroke to be more "round" with an Oval shape than with a round chainring.

What size should I choose?

  • 46/30T is best for great gravel adventures where lots of climbing is involved and bike is packed with gear. Or simply for you to actually enjoy road climbs like Sa Calobra in Majorca or Alpe d'Huez in France.
  • 48/32T is ideal for general road climbing and day to day riding. Planning L'Étape du Tour? This size is right for you (30T would be too slow).

Why using absoluteBlack oval chainrings matters

Absolute Black oval road chainrings deliver power more smoothly to your rear wheel. This means you are better able to generate and maintain, constant cadence. Because oval chainrings reduce the peak loads on knee joints, riders using them get less stress on the joints (knees) and therefore are able to keep certain level of effort for longer. This results in higher average speed. You don’t need to take our word at Absolute Black; 11 scientific studies by leading universities around the globe show that; in comparison to round chainrings, when using oval chainrings, human legs utilize more muscle groups - but each of them to lesser degree. The overall Load from pedalling an oval chainring is spread over greater muscle mass. This has three key benefits; firstly, it gives you the feeling of fresher and more relaxed legs. Secondly; it allows you to achieve higher average speed riding uphill. Thirdly; spreading the pedalling load over more muscles reduces the risk of cramp, even when riding hard. The compound effect of switching to oval chainrings; the relaxed legs, added climbing ability and reduction of cramp means your overall enjoyment of the ride is enhanced.

How to mount super compact 46/30T & 48/32T 110/4 Oval chainrings:

First, you need to remove your crank from your bike. Once removed, unscrew the 4 bolts that hold two chainrings together with a T-30 torx key. Remove both original rings.
  • For 46/30T - Start by placing big chainring on the crank. There is only one way to do it. Next locate triangular mark on inner circumference on the small chainring and make sure it will sit behind the crank. Small chainring has also integrated spacers on one side. Those spacers need to enter into the crank mounting holes. 30T chainring is provided with 2x M5 bolts (Torx T-25) and 2x M7 bolts (torx T-30). Lock both chainrings in place using provided bolts and torque M5 to 4-5Nm and M7 to 5-7Nm.
  • For 48/32T - Same procedure applies except that 32T chainring comes with 4x M7 bolts (torx T-30).

You may also need to adjust the front derailleur slightly.
