Cannondale Spidering ROAD oval chainring is here!

absoluteBLACK are pleased to announce a new addition to their portfolio of oval chainrings. The Cannondale Spidering road oval chainring.

Cannondale Hollowgram crank owners wanting to ride oval had to resort to heavy and often unsightly direct-mount spiders to mount their chainrings; absoluteBLACK created the ultimate solution.

absoluteBLACK have taken slightly different route to create this direct mount 2x ring set. The decision was made to use 5 small titanium bolts to connect the two rings together making it “one-piece”. Cnc'ing everything from one piece has a lot of limitations both in the design concept and machining process. Using two separate chainrings ensures the best possible strength to weight to stiffness characteristics across the whole setup utilising absoluteBLACK's proprietary shifting ramps.

Oval chainrings are taking the market by storm and there is a reason for it - they just work. absoluteBLACK have been working for years in perfecting the geometry and conducting tests to prove that this technology really makes the difference. Having their own laboratory, scientists and co-operation with leading Universities in the world really helps them to push the envelope in this field.

Having access to pro tour teams, like the UAE Team Emirates, places absoluteBLACK at the forefront in providing scientific biomechanical optimisation for all team riders. This gives absoluteBLACK a full spectrum of pedalling motion data, from pro tour stars to an average cyclist, to help in the development of world leading chainrings.

Available in 50/34T and 52/36T combinations with sub-compact sizes coming soon
