Why Oval Chainring
As the story goes, Oval was next best thing, so we gave it a try, and we loved it. With special angle, Shovel oval chainrings will make you have more power on the downhill side, while going uphill, you will be left feeling you are riding a small chainring. 34T oval will act as 36T while shredding your way down, and 32T when struggling uphill.
Shovel chainrings have been tested for over 2 years before release, to ensure the best chain ring design and quality. Teeth design is specially done by adding extra surfaces of which mud can slide off, retaining the chain in every condition.
Some tech stuff:
Weight: Only 39 grams
Open C design for chainring bolts
Increased durability with special tooth design
Optimised ovality for the best performance
Chain ring size: 34T teeth
Open "C" design is one of the key benefits of Shovel Enduro products, so we implemented in our chain rings also.
