This chainring is specifically designed to work with CN-M9100, 8100, 7100 & 6100 Shimano 12spd Hyperglide+ chain due to different thickness of the teeth.

NOTE: Due to the nature of PVD process, every chainring is unique and color may vary. Not a single chainring is the same which makes your new ring completely individual. You can indicate to us, in comments section during the checkout, if you prefer more gold-purple or more blue/green-purple, but we can not guarantee to meet your request.

Ovals helped me with my osteoarthritis in both knees

" The oval rings continue to impress me and have made a genuine difference to my riding particularly as suffer from osteoarthritis in both knees. There does not seem to be as much stress on my knees and they don't ache when I have completed my rides. I am super impressed!"

Just a few hours and I’m used to them

" I had my AB chainring installed last week and after few hours of pedaling, boom, it hit me. This chainring made a big difference. My knees didn’t hurt, I felt faster on flats and uphill. "

Smooth ride and easy on the knees

" I’ll never go back to round. Super smooth, eased my knee pain, and has helped my climbs on technical ascents ten fold."

Better power delivery

" Initially, reluctant. However, after riding my 29er I was very impressed with the power distribution and no knee pain. AB undoubtable got it nailed. You won't even know your are riding an OVAL after 15 minutes time."

Great looks and even better climbing performance

" Super pleased with the overall look and performance of the chainring. I can 100% say that it does improve my pedaling while climbing and getting through rough uphill stuff. Each pedal stroke is now more fluid and cadence is better on those longer climbs."

How to mount Absoluteblack oval chainring to Shimano 12spd Hyperglide+ crank:

Using Hollowtech II BB Removal Tool (like BBB BTL-116 ), carefully open the lockring that holds the chainring on the crank(normal threads). Once the lockring is removed, take off old chainring, re-grease the splines on the crank. Place new oval chainring with convex side to the crank. Chainring/crank has special splines that only fit one way. Close the lockring to 35-50Nm of force. Chainring is only compatible with CN-M9100, M8100, M7100 & M6100 Shimano 12spd Hyperglide+ chains. Using other chains may cause chain to drop very easily from the chainring due to thinner than usual teeth.


Oval (elliptical) chainring does not compromise the work of clutch mechanism in rear derailleur(video at the bottom). It also does not require chain tensioner when using in singlespeed application. Riding out of saddle on the uphill will become more pleasant.


Ovality of the chainring is in range of 10-14% (dependent on size) and feels perfectly round when riding. These chainrings also help you to recover after knee injuries as pedaling becomes smoother and less exhausting. It is the most advanced oval chainring currently on the market.

Chain options

12spd xtr9100, 8100, 7100 & 6100 Shimano 12spd Hyperglide+ chain only 

Chainguide needed?

No. But if you want one then chain guide should have 2 teeth more capacity than nominal oval ring size.
