ROTOR QXL RINGS

I have used the Q rings for about seven years now. With my early beginnings in Shimano Biopace in the 1990’s, the Rotor QXL rings for the most advanced and only rings available today. The Q rings go from 10% from the previous version now to 16% ovalization. While I don’t consider myself a high cadence rider, I usually average somewhere between 80 and 90 RPMs. I do feel that the benefit from QXL rings are hugely beneficial to my riding style. The rotor QXL rings are specifically designed and geared for a higher cadence rider and racer. The design basis for the Q rings are that they increase the efficiency at certain specific levels during pedaling. The oval is specific to the highest power zone while pedaling. The Ring also decreases and minimizes any dead spots during the stroke.

The Rotor’s QXL are an excellent addition to any beginner or advanced cyclist and will improve your performance and maximize your power while pedaling.
