Q RINGS 1x DM
Introducing the new one-piece oval Direct Mount with OCP Mount. OCP Mount’s patent-pending, proprietary technology allows the oval ring to be adjusted in 1-degree increments for optimized pedaling biomechanics. 12.5% ovality heightens the performance advantages of oval chainrings; no other oval chainring in the growing oval chainring category offers the adjustment options plus unique ovality all aimed at improving pedaling performance.
Weight: 92g for 40t, 138g for 50t
Q-Rings are ovalized chainrings designed to reduce the negative effects of the “dead spots” during a pedal rotation. Because of their oval shape, Q-Rings boost cycling performance by varying drivetrain resistance during pedaling inline with the legs’ natural strengths and weaknesses.
How do they work?
The way Q-Rings work is, by orienting the narrowing diameter of the oval to the weakest point of the pedal stroke and the widening diameter to the strongest point of the pedal stroke, you can take full advantage of the most-productive part of your pedal rotation (while lessening time spent in the least-productive part).
What does the OCP system do?
OCP represents the different setup positions that ROTOR Q-Rings offer to fit a rider’s distinct pedaling style. Q-Rings feature up to 5 OCP´s, with OCP 3 as an intermediate starting point, all to optimize your pedaling style. OCP is intended to ensure an ideal chainring orientation with respect to how you pedal your bike.
