The Rapidé OVL Ultralight Ring gives you better traction, especially with climbing, riding in sand or loose rock, by smoothing out the torque you deliver to the rear tire.
Where your pedal stroke is weakest you have the equivalent of 2 teeth less on the chainring, and where you have the most power you have 2 more teeth. The radius of the chainring is constantly changing. The torque needed to turn the cranks is constantly changing to better match your power output. The Rapidé OVL Ring maximizes the part of the pedal stroke where power is produced, and minimizes resistance where it isn’t, allowing you to get on top of a gear.
Made with super stiff and very light weight 7075-T6 alloy for flex-free power transfer and long life. The Rapidé OVL Ultralight Ring is a perfect Single Speed chainring as well. It features our enhanced narrow-wide tooth profile for incredible chain security plus an elliptical shape to maximize traction, power and efficiency.
Note: Not compatible with half-link chains.
* Mountain biking rattles bolts loose – use a quality thread lock compound to prevent this. Pay particular attention to things like chain ring bolts – a lost chainring bolt can lead to chainring failure.
* We recommend torquing chainring bolts to 6-8nm and periodic inspection.
