I resumed racing cyclocross after laying off for two years. The first two races were marked by multiple chain drops. I read about the Sentinel and ordered it immediately. I raced with it yesterday and did not have a single chain drop. Sweet!!! Thanks for a wonderful product.
Recently I purchased the WickWerks Cycling components Chain rings and could not be happier. The customer service provided by Chris is second to none and made the whole process as smooth as possible. The Chain rings were being fitted to a Quark power meter, Chris was able to walk me through the fit, making it […]
53/34 Review Submitted by Jim via WickWerks.com August 5, 2016 Comments: These things rock. I’m no technical bike guy, just a rider who puts 5000-8000 miles a year on a variety of road bikes. These chain rings shift quicker than anything else I have. That means various Dura Ace, Ultegra, and Campagnolo setups as I […]
Review Submitted by Patrick OConnell via WickWerks.com July 2, 2014 Comments: I sat on the fence for a long time before deciding to pull the trigger on these rings. I read about them, thought about them, talked about them, but couldn’t quite believe that they would make that much difference in my shifting. They do. […]
Submitted by Mbiz via WickWerks.com April 26, 2014 Comments: Finally had a chance to get out and test my new WickWerks front chainrings. I upgraded to the 52/36 rings for two reasons 1) to increase the size and 2) to get a better front shift. All last season I struggled with sloppy front shifts no […]
Submitted by MTB Dad via WickWerks.com February 13, 2014 Comments: Purchased these after reading reviews and not being really thrilled with the SRAM replacement rings. I ride the same 18-20 mile routes 4 days a week with lots of climbing. I noticed on my first ride with the rings they felt better, just seemed to […]
Submitted by Emil via WickWerks.com January 22, 2014 Comments: After switching to WW for ‘cross, I’ve switched all of my chainrings to WW. ‘Cross typifies the need for stable, quick shifting rings and WW satisfies this to a ‘T’. As WW states-no chainkeeper needed and its true! All of my bikes have benefited from the […]
“This is the part of technology that I love, when someone makes a component that is brilliantly designed, works as intended, and represents a significant improvement over existing products. WickWerks rings might be one of the best innovations gear shifting has seen in a long time.” – Michael Robson, Velo News
A detailed review of the WickWerks 2×10 conversion chainrings was written by Jen Hanks and posted on MtbRaceNews.com over the weekend. WickWerks has created chainrings and promoted a nifty system for converting a mountain bike triple to a 2×10 (double). Jen picked up on this idea and decided to try it out. This is the […]
A product review from the perspective of a Triathlete — one who likes the feel of fine equipment, relishes aesthetic appeal, but is also price conscience and wants great function. Christopher Morelock writes about his experience with WickWerks chainrings in his blog post on “The Triathlete’s Wit”.
Submitted by Harry Seaward via Facebook April 28, 2013 via mobile Few things are as hard on components and prone to shifting issues as tandems. We’ve been running your 3×9 chainrings, for several months now, and our drivetrain has never worked better. Thanks for a great product.
Review by Brad W. – Master BG F.I.T Technician from Michigan March 20, 2013 via email Comments: These things are amazing. I’m always cautious when I buy products even when they have the reviews yours have but holy crap, in the stand and the little test rides I’ve done here at the shop, these things […]
A very detailed rings review and competitive comparison of WickWerks chainrings done by Greg Kopecky for Slowtwitch.com Greg goes into lots of detail – more than most – including installation, adjustment and chainring performance to carefully analyze, compare and contrast the WickWerks rings with competitive products in his review.
From Amanda Carey – Ultra Endurance Pro Mountain Bike Racer Amanda Carey has dominated the National Ultra Endurance (NUE) Series the last two years. She’s on track to take the title again. These are 100 mile races and she rides the WickWerks MTB 2×10 40/26 Rings on a Race Face Next crank. The 40t certainly […]
A ‘Cross Racer and Media Technical Reviewer from the Chicago area took a wack at the WickWerks 44/34t chainrings to see what they’d do. His article details are, as he says appealing to the “most geeky of bike geeks” as he goes into lots of detail about his bike set-up and challenges with associated components […]
Submitted by tohatchi a Cross Country Rider from Orem, UT, USA Bottom Line: Fantastic products, fantastic company. Chris Wicks owns it and runs the show. He takes care of his customers. If you’re tired of poor shifting through your front chain rings then this will fix it.
Submitted by Cap’um a Cross Country Rider from Boston area, MA Bottom Line: I haven’t ridden these chainrings for very long, but I wanted to write a review while the memory of my old rings is still somewhat fresh. These chainrings are absolutely brilliant! (no, I’m not British, just hear me out…).
