Q-Rings boost your performance by varying drivetrain resistance during pedaling in line with your legs natural strengths and weakness. They make better use of the strongest muscle groups (increasing positive work) and compensate for the weaker zones in the pedaling stroke (reducing negative work). A Q-Ring gives a silky-smooth “perfect spin” by smoothening out torque
variations and making better use of your strongest muscles. The new QX1 has an alternating wide/narrow tooth profile which prevents the chain from dropping in the worst conditions even without a chain guide.
OCP (Optimum Chainring Position) You can micro adjust the position of your Q-Ring to suit your riding style. Q-Rings use your leg muscles at a different rate than round rings, thereby changing your intramuscular coordination of motor units. Thanks to the OCP of the Q-Ring, you will find your best position seeking both comfort and efficiency.
