BLACK by Absoluteblack Narrow Wide Oval XT M8000 Chainring

Oval chainrings work because the rider does not produce power evenly through the pedal stroke; they maximize the part of the stroke where power is produced and minimize resistance where it isn't. You will actually feel your stroke to be more "round" with an Oval shape than with a round chainring.


  • Oval rings help the rider spin smoother, gain a lot more traction in terrain and are easier on legs while climbing
  • 32T is equivalent to 30t at dead spot and 34t at the power zone
  • 34T is equivalent to 32t at dead spot and 36t at the power zone
  • State of the art Narrow-Wide tooth profile keeps the chain snug, allowing you to leave the chain guide behind
  • Note: Chainring is not threaded but chainline is corrected to 49mm with use of built in spacers
  • Works with 1x9/10/11spd or Singlespeed setups
  • Designed in UK, manufactured in Poland
  • Arm x BCD: 4x96mm
  • 7075 Txxx Aluminum. Long-lasting construction
  • Burly enough for DH Racers and Dirt Jumpers
  • Weight: 46g (32T)/49g (34T)

Choosing correct size:

  • 32T oval is best for someone currently riding 30 or 32T round chainring.
  • 34T oval is best for someone currently riding 34 or 36T round chainring

How to mount Absoluteblack oval chainring:

There is a small mark (triangle shaped) on the inner circumference of the chainring. This mark MUST sit behind the crank arm.
