IMPORTANT

Due to very special 2.5mm offset construction of BOTH chainrings towards the frame and custom bolts 32T can only work with 48T and special bolt set 48/32. (bolts included with small ring)

*No other combination or mix of rings will work. Due to special mounting construction, aesthetic bolt covers are not offered for this design

*We Only recommend Dura-ace 11spd chain or Sram Eagle 12spd chain for proper clearance of mounting tabs

*Absolute Black always recommends using a new chain when fitting new chainrings.



SPEED AT CADENCE CALCULATION

The absoluteBLACK Sub Compact Oval 48T rings are large enough to reach comparable flatland speeds as their larger counterparts. This calculation shows gear combinations at 90rpm cadence, and 700c x 25mm tire.

* 48x11T combination is minimally faster than 52x12T. This is 49.7km/h (30.9mph) and is faster than 53x13T! At 100rpm it increases to 55km/h (34.3mph).

As seen from the example above absoluteBLACK Sub Compact Oval Chainrings are more than capable of reaching high top speeds when used with 11T cog. But where absoluteBLACK Sub Compact rings are in a league of their own is the small 32T chainring. They make climbing easier and exceptionally comfortable, but still retain high top speeds with 48T big chainring.

How to mount super compact 48/32T 110/5 Oval chainrings:

First, you need to remove your crank from your bike. Once removed, unscrew the 5 bolts that hold two chainrings together with a T-30 torx key. Remove both original rings.

Start by placing big chainring on the crank. Please note that small triangular indicator on the inner circumference of the chainring Must sit behind the crank arm - same way as original chainring indicates its position. Next, locate triangular mark on inner circumference of the small chainring and make sure it will sit behind the crank as well. Small chainring has also an integrated spacers on one side. Those spacers need to enter into the crank mounting holes. 32T chainring is provided with 5x M5 bolts (Torx T-25). Lock both chainrings in place using provided bolts and torque to 4-5Nm

In case of Sram cranks with one hidden bolt the indicators of both chainrings have to be positioned exactly opposite to the crank arm to guarantee correct timing of the oval rings in respect to the crank arm
