WickWerks Engineer Eldon Goates starts off our conversation by proclaiming WickWerks chainrings to be the “fastest shifting chainrings in the world.” He then talks us through the engineering in support of this claim. WickWerks chainrings have ramps around the inside of the chainring specifically designed to pick up the chain under multiple joints, with the idea that this setup makes it much more likely for the chain to stay on the shift ramp and complete the shift.
Goates follows up with a demonstration of shifting that shows the chain engaged within ¼ turn of the crank. WickWerks chains are available for road, mountain and cyclocross bikes. Check out the video for a full description and learn more online at www.wickwerks.com.
