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.  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, and SRAM 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.

42/34t Cyclocross & Gravel & Road Chainrings:

Perfect for those that don’t want to push a bigger ring and want to keep a steady rhythm and cadence.

The 42/34 tooth chainring combination by WickWerks was first introduced in 2008 and made famous by Katie Compton as she charged through the Women’s Cyclocross racing world.  Many other riders (male and female) have followed — realizing that in many cases you can go faster with smaller rings that better fit personal abilities and power range.  Now this very popular 42/34 tooth combination is available to fit the newer Shimano 4-arm road cranks.

These are high-performance chainrings made with the WickWerks BRIDGE Shift Technology to shift faster, to shift more dependably (in all sorts of conditions), and to give a racing shift advantage.

Check out the chainring images — especially the back and side views to see the aggressive chain lifting shift ramps.  (We call it BRIDGE Technology, and it has changed the game.)  This is the best shifting currently available – and miles ahead of shift pins — ready to grab the chain and shift when you’re ready to shift, even in the nasty of a cyclocross race.
