Race Face Introduces the RF Cinch Oval Direct Mount Chain Ring

Date Jul 5, 2018

Our new Cinch Oval rings help you put down the watts in the best part of our pedal stroke, on your 10, 11 or 12 speed drivetrains. Ovals provide enhanced traction control when compared to conventional round rings, particularly in high torque, low cadence riding scenarios. We’ve got your timing clocked to improve on that grueling climb. Or simply make your personal pedal-shuttle a little more bearable. And by simply flipping the ring, it becomes Super Boost compatible without losing the same excellent timing to help you maintain traction during the toughest part of your push.

Cinch Oval rings are available in 4 sizes: 28t, 30t, 32t, 34t. We arrived at an optimal 112.5° “clocking”, the angle between the crank arm and the largest diameter of the oval, measured anti-clockwise from the crank arm. This clocking angle is achievable in both regular and flipped positions, following the laser etched crank arm orientation callout on the ring. The rings feature an “Ovality” of 10%, this means the ring diameter varies from 95% to 105% of the equivalent round ring. Cinch Oval rings are compatible with many chainguides, thought the variable width tooth design will keep chain retention dialed utilizing clutched derailleurs.
