New AbsoluteBLACK Premium OVAL ROAD 2X chainrings offer world famous fast shifting, climb enhancing oval rings to owners of the new Shimano Dura Ace 9100 and Ultegra 8000 road cranksets.  

The new Premium AbsoluteBLACK 2X OVAL ROAD rings have been designed to specifically suit technically and visually with the latest Shimano Dura Ace 9100 and Ultegra 8000 crank arms.

The new OVAL ROAD design is also compatible with the previous Shimano Dura Ace 9000 and Ultegra 6800 series cranks, which share the same 110mm BCD/4 arm specification.

The new Shimano 9100/8000 specification Premium OVAL ROAD outer chainrings continue to feature visually stunning and intricate CNC machining to carefully reduce their mass to a minimum, without sacrificing any performance or strength and an attractive, durable hard anodised finish.

The new Premium OVAL ROAD rings feature an updated and improved integrated ramp design. The new CNC machined ramp profile has proven, through heavy testing, to deliver even faster and more precise front gear shifting performance than before.

The Premium ROAD OVAL outer rings are available in Black, Grey and new Champagne colour options. Our Premium OVAL ROAD inner rings are available in black only.

The available OVAL ROAD ring sizes match current trends for lower gearing. The OVAL ROAD ring sizes and weights (in grams):

  • Inner OVAL ROAD rings: 34T (31g), 36T (37g), 38T (41g), 39T (42g)
  • Outer OVAL ROAD rings: 50T (120g), 52T (137g), 53T(139g)
  • Cost OVAL ROAD inner: £47.50 €53.95 $61.95
  • Cost OVAL ROAD outer: £95 €105 $124

While not completely necessary for full function, AbsoluteBLACK recommends fitting our additional CNC machined aluminium bolt covers to create the smooth ‘flush fit’ appearance between the Shimano 9100/8000 crank arms and our Premium OVAL ROAD rings. The CNC machined bolt covers cost £41.50 €47 $52 and are available in either Black or Grey.

As ever, we recommend swapping both outer and inner chainrings to the Premium OVAL ROAD rings, though you can also combine either of the inner or outer ovals with your existing round rings.

Riders around the world, from ‘weekend warriors’ to full elite level professional road racers, already enjoy the smoother pedalling feel, reduced knee stress and optimised shift performance delivered by AbsoluteBLACK OVAL ROAD chainrings.

AbsoluteBLACK Premium OVAL ROAD 2X chainrings for Shimano Dura Ace 9100 and Ultegra 8000 cranks will be available from January 5th 2018 directly from and via our worldwide dealer network
