ROTOR Q-Ring MTB QX1 104mm

Show all items from ROTOR
  • Every pedal rotation has a single purpose: to propel you forward, no matter the terrain. QX1 104BCD chainrings for your 1x cranks take advantage of the most-productive part of your pedal stroke by working with your body´s biomechanics to yield maximum efficiency.

    How you transfer power off-road will vary as much from the way you ride as to where you ride; QX1 rings offer 12.5% ovality and feature 3 Optimum Chainring Positions (OCP) that can be timed to the most-powerful output in your pedal stroke while affording you instant traction and faster acceleration when you need it most.

    Weight:
    54g per 34t

    Sizes:
    34t, 36t

    Characteristics:
    • Alternating wide/narrow single ring tooth profile 12.5% ovality
    • 100% CNC-machined, 7075-T6 aluminum alloy
    • Aero design and reinforced rigidity
    • 3 OCP points (2-3-4)
    • Designed to work with all 9, 10 and 11 speed groupsets

  • Why Q-rings?
    Biomechanical studies indicate that the effort made with Q-Rings becomes a greater performance and pedaling feeling more rounded and smooth due to their ability to make a better use of the strongest muscle groups while they also compensate the dead spot in pedaling.
    Q-Ring-Round Ring Comparison
    Far from feeling unusual, a Q-Ring feels much rounder than a round ring. A spinscan analysis visualize a cyclists power delivery, with a bar graph indicating the variation from maximum to minimum output and a polar graph showing the rotating shape of the power profile.

    By comparing the left hand Round chainring spinscan and the right hand Q-Ring spinscan below, one can see that Q-Ring graphs are clearly smoother (less variation in torque in the bar graph) and fuller (less of a peanut shape at the weakest point).
    Spinscan
    When one projects a polar plot of a typical spinscan over the varying drivetrain resistance of a 53t Q-Ring during its rotation, the value of a Q-Ring is clearly visible: Maximum power is met with a “56,5t” Time trial sized chainring diameter and minimum power is met with a “50,4” compact size chainring diameter.
    This variation creates the “perfect spin” we all aspire to, that simply isn’t possible with round chainrings. This is because Q-Rings compensate for the weakest zone of the pedalling stroke and maximize use of the most powerful zone.
    Key benefits (based on ROTOR study)
    • All Q-ring TT’s were faster, with an average gain of 1.6 sec and 0.7 km/h (1.8%).
    • All Q-Ring TT’s generated more power, with average increase of 26.7 W (6.2%)
    • Reduced oxygen consumption and heart rate in submaximal tests
    • An immediate performance increase on switching from round rings to Q-Rings
    • An immediate performance reduction on switching back to round chainrings
    • It also appears that the more effort a cyclist exerts, the greater the benefit of Q’s
