QRings and Aero QRings
Q-Rings can increase an avid cyclist’s performance by as much as 4 seconds per km in a sprint – that’s twice the benefit of an aero wheelset!
Professionally, athletes who have chosen to ride them have put to rest any doubts about their performance by winning two grand tours, more than 25 Ironman races and over 20 UCI elite Road, MTB and CX world champion titles.
Q-Rings boost your performance by varying drivetrain resistance during pedalling in line with your legs natural strengths and weakness. They make better use of the strongest muscle groups (increasing positive work) and compensate for the weaker zones in the pedalling stroke (reducing negative work).
Compatible with every crankset in the market. Click on the link below to check your compatibility:
The muscles recruited during pedalling, their relative strength during pedalling and the torque produced as a crankset rotates are shown in the figures below. From these graphs, it is clear that a round chainrings’ constant level of resistance interferes with optimal pedalling dynamics.
A Q-Ring gives a silky-smooth “perfect spin” by smoothening out torque variations and making better use of your strongest muscles, visible in the smoother and fuller Graphs to the right: “Round ring vs. Q-Ring spinscan”.
Peer-reviewed scientific research has shown that Q-Rings offer a clear increase in performance compared to round chainrings. Elite level cyclists saw a 1,6 sec advantage in a 1KM TT study, generating 27W more power. For comparison, 60mm aero wheels often claim 1,5-1,8 sec/km and 16W savings.
What does this mean when you’re riding? You will discover increased endurance, realize explosive sprints and see a newfound tenacity in climbs. You will find that you can stick with the hardcore group that usually drops you. You will become an improved version of yourself, ready to set new PR’s and discover a new depth of performance. Triathletes will notice reduced strain in the bike split and better run split performance.
