OPTIMIZE YOUR PEDALLING
Q-Rings make better use of your strongest muscles
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 studies
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.
