The latest in Cyclocross Chainring sizes is the New 41/33 tooth combination for 5-Bolt 110 BCD with BRIDGE Tech Shift Technology. The new size brings new opportunities for those who want a slightly easier approach to the Cross Course. The 41t large rings is perfect for most of the ride, and the 33t small ring gives that little bit extra when needed. Though enjoyed by adults, these rings can be especially valuable for Junior riders needing slightly lower gears for their physiology. 41/33 may be the perfect ratio for you.

41/33 Cyclocross Chainrings:
The 41/33 tooth chainring combination by WickWerks was made for those loving the slightly smaller ratios and power available with a 33 tooth small ring. Think these are for weaker riders? Think again — and remember that Katie Compton rode the 42/34 combination. The 41/33 set takes the trend one more step and is now available to the masses. As with Katie, try a set and see if the 41/33 can increase your overall speed.
These rings include the radical WickWerks shifting advantage in the form of high-performance shift ramps we call BRIDGE Shift Technology to shift faster, shift more dependably, and (most important in ‘cross) shift even when conditions get nasty.
Check out the chainring images above, especially the back view to see the ramps. (We call it BRIDGE Shift Technology.) This is the best shifting capability currently available – and miles ahead of the traditional shift pins typically used. These ramps create the big hands needed to grab the chain and lift it NOW — because there are many ramps to allow you to shift when you’re ready, even in the slog of a tough cyclocross race.
This shift technology has become a favorite in the cyclocross racing circles because It Works! Now it’s available in a 41/33 Cyclocross combination.
Cyclocross 41/33 chainring combination is available to fit 5-bolt 110mm BCD cranks — standard and SRAM 22 Style — also the Shimano 4-Arm versions like Dura-Ace 9000, Ultegra 6800, 105 5800, and Tiagra 4700 series. The rings are 10 & 11 speed compatible, and they replace all the standard brands. Check out the specs above. For setup and maximum performance tips, please visit our technical support site
