What is a chainring on a bike?
A chainring is a round, sprocket-like component attached to the crankset of a bicycle. It's what drives the chain and powers the bike's rear wheel.
The chainring connects to the pedals, so when you pedal, it spins and moves the chain, propelling the bike forward. No chainring, no movement.
Chainrings come in varying sizes, measured by the number of teeth on the ring. The number of teeth determines the gear ratio and the pedalling effort required to move the bike. They come in single-speed, fixed-gear, and multi-speed options. Single-speed chainrings are typically used on track bikes and fixies, while multi-speed chainrings are for road and mountain bikes.
Do oval chainrings work?
Round is standard, but oval chainrings (elliptical) are reported to improve overall pedalling efficiency. Elliptical chainrings are a relatively new development in the cycling industry. They're designed to mimic the natural shape of the human pedal stroke, making them more efficient than a round chainring.
That increased energy output is because oval chainrings provide more consistent power output throughout the pedal stroke, resulting in a smoother ride. Some riders experience improved power and efficiency with oval chainrings, while others don't. Drop us a line and let's discuss if this option is right for your bike.
Not all riders will benefit from oval chainrings, and this type isn't compatible with all types of bicycles or drivetrains. Some bicyclists say that oval chainrings cause knee pain or discomfort. Don't let that be you, let our team of cycling pros guide you before you press the buy button.
It's worth noting that oval chainrings aren't that common in the cycling industry, and not all bike shops carry them. That means that even if you want one, finding the perfect fit for your bike might be challenging.
