This Shimano Oval 96BCD traction chainring is designed for Shimano XTR M9000 and M9020 cranks only. They feature exactly same oval shape as our other oval chainrings.
All 3 sizes have built-in M7 threaded standoffs to provide the ideal 1X chain line. They improve stock Shimano chainline by 1mm. You can only use Original Shimano M7 bolts with these chainrings (they come with crank).
What size should I choose?
How to mount Absolute black oval chainring:
There is a small mark (triangle shaped) on the inner circumference of the chainring.
This mark Must sit behind the crank arm.
It is ideal for 1x 10/11 and Singlespeeds. Oval (elliptical) chainring does not compromise the work of clutch mechanism in the rear derailleur. It also does not require a chain tensioner when using in single speed application. Riding out of the saddle on the uphill will become more pleasant.
Ovality of the chainring is 10-14% (dependent on size) and feels perfectly round when riding. These chainrings also help you to recover after knee injuries as pedalling becomes smoother and less exhausting. It is the most advanced oval chainring currently on the market.
The most advanced, Patent Pending narrow/wide tooth profile ever produced, guarantee minimum 12 months of excellent chain retention capabilities! We mean it. Always use a new chain with a new chainring.
