The absoluteBLACK Premium 1X Oval 96BCD narrow wide chainring is designed for Shimano XT M8000, SLX M7000 and MT700 1x or 2x cranks Only. These chainrings fit Boost and non-boost bikes as correct offset is realized by the crank spider itself, not chainring.

Increase your performance by up to 9%: the Oval XT M8000/SLX M7000 Chainring from absoluteBLACK

Oval chainrings simplify pedaling and reduce leg tiring on gradients. Believe it (or not), but round chainrings do not transmit the force as evenly to the rear wheel as an oval chainring. A 32Z oval chainring has the smallest diameter (corresponding to 30Z) at the dead point (lowest point of the kicking movement) and the largest diameter (corresponding to 34Z) at the highest point. This means that with a 32Z oval chainring you are faster than with a round chainring! With the oval chainrings you don't need more force, but with the adapted force development you are faster. The confusing thing about the whole thing is that most riders find the kicking motion rounder than with a round chainring. You can hardly imagine this and present it on the website - you have to try it yourself to believe it.

Despite being a very young brand, they managed to become the leader in the number of sold oval chainrings. They focus mainly on oval chainrings made of German aluminium, and the manufacture takes place in Poland. The final anodizing takes place in the UK, where their company headquarters reside.
