Osymetric Chainrings Improve Your Pedalling Efficiency. Get the best out of your pedalling power by using the increasingly popular Osymetric chainring set, NOW IN NEW GENERATION for Shimano 4 bolt crank sets. The genuine Osymetric has now improved their functionality with the addition of ramps and pins for improved up shifting. The new design is also made of thicker (3.5mm for small chainrings and 4mm for large chainrings) quality anodised aluminium suitable for all 11 speed Shimano 4 bolt road crank sets, EXCEPT the new Dura Ace R9100 and Ultegra R8000 series cranks.
All chainrings for Shimano 4 bolt designs are now 110mm BCD and come in kits with one inner ring and one outer ring. Order your preferred inner and outer ring size and receive a fitting kit including free chain catcher.
Chainrings are not symmetrical as with other non-round chainrings. The radius of the chainring varies in proportion to the amount of power available from a riders legs at various pedal positions.It looks unusual, but it works. Studies have shown that the power of the leg is two times lower at the top dead centre(TDC) and bottom dead centre (BDC) than available on the power downward stroke. The aim of an Osymetric chainring is to reduce the radius of the chainring at TDC and BDC so that it is easier to pedal through these positions and the leg has some time to recover during each pedal stroke. A 52 teeth Osymetric chainring is equivalent to approximately a 48 teeth round chainring at TDC/BDC and equal to 54 teeth on the downward stroke.
The benefits have already been taken up by a number of riders in the pro peloton with great success. My own tests have confirmed the benefits. I tested the Osymetric 50T against a round 50T chainring, with a 5 minute constant power test (at 60% of maximum power).
The results were: 1 - Heart Rate on the round chainring at constant power was 5.4% higher than on the Osymetric. 2 - Cadence on the round chainring at a set constant power was 8.7% higher than on the Osymetric. As you can see, using the Osymetric chainring requires substantially less energy to maintain the same power output than on a same size round chainring.
Ideal for road, ITT and triathlon applications. Check out the information on the manufactures web site.
