. . . you could have anything in a chainring?
What would it do?
What would make it better?
That's what we asked, and our patented shift technology is the result.
Bicycle chainrings have been around for a long time, and so have their shifting issues. WickWerks rings are different - with BRIDGE Technology - these ARE a better chainrings.
See Max Performance to learn the shifting details of these awesome chainrings.
There is a shifting advantage with WickWerks Chainrings. Once you experience it, it's hard to ever leave. It's in the radical ramps (or BRIDGE technology) used on the inside face of the rings.As seen in the pictures, the inside face with the long ramps makes contact with full links of the chain. These ramps act different than the usual shift pins, because pins grab only one chain link - in the middle of the side plate. These ramps, instead, lift from under the chain - under the chain link pivot points - to give full and stable lift. Check out the Technology Page for much more detail and illustration.
Because these chainrings are different, they require a little different set-up than standard rings. It's not much different, but a little fine adjustment will go a long way in making these rings shift better, shift faster, and shift more reliably than the competition.
We recommend following the web links above -- especially the Maximim Performance links to be sure your chainrings and related components (derailleur, crank, etc.) are all set perfectly That way, you'll get the most from your investment, and truely experience the WickWerks Shifting Advantage !!
