42t Cyclocross and Gravel Chainring size with BRIDGE Shift Technology – made specifically for the demands of ‘Cross. Made to perform in all sorts of conditions! These are the rings made famous by Katie Compton in the 2013-2014 CX season as she took the World Cup Title. They come as a 42/34 tooth combination for a Standard Compact Cranks (110 BCD), and for the Sram 22 Style Cranks. For Shimano 4-Arm Cranks, use these rings. The new size brings new opportunities for those who want a slightly easier approach to the Cross Course and for those that want to push a smaller big ring.

42t Cyclocross & Gravel & Road Chainrings:
The 42/34 tooth chainring combination by WickWerks was made famous by Katie Compton as she dominated the Cyclocross World Cup in the 2013-2014 season. Her choice to go smaller rather than bigger bucked traditional wisdom but propelled her to many race wins and the overall Cup! This 42/34 tooth combination is now available for everyone — and this specific set — is made to fit the newer Shimano 4-bolt road cranks.
These rings include the WickWerks shifting advantage in the form of high-performance chainrings made with BRIDGE 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 radical, chain ramps. (We call it BRIDGE 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. And notice the many ramps, not just a couple, that 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 42t Cyclocross combination.
Cyclocross 42/34 ring combination is available to fit the standard compact 110mm BCD, 5-bolt road cranks as well as the SRAM 22 Style cranks. The rings are compatible with 10 & 11 speed, and they replace all the standard brands. Check out the specs above and get the right rings on your bike. Select the appropriate crank in the ordering box above.
See the ordering box above, this ring combination is also available for the Shimano 4-Bolt Crank, 110mm BCD, road cranks, both 10 & 11 speed chain options. Though the rings work great on the crank alone, if you want the finished look, you can (purchase separately) the special cap covers that Shimano makes for this Crank (shown in the image at right). Be warned, they are expensive, but if you want them, they are available.
