WHY OUR FORGED RINGS MATTER TO YOU.
By forging rings instead of machining them, we create a better shifting, longer lasting, and overall more superior chain ring. These are definitely not your average chainrings. You’ve invested in an amazing bicycle with all the bells and whistles, and if your front shifting isn’t spot on…it will absolutely ruin your ride.
You might not think about upgrading your chainrings that much… but we do.
Our road rings are now made to mount to a traditional 5-arm 110 or 130BCD and now also 4-arm with hidden 5th bolt cranks. Our MTB rings are made to mount to a 4-arm 104/64 MTB crank. If fact, we’d like to think that our rings do a great job complimenting many of the most common cranks in the market. We also know you mix and match drivetrain components, and that can affect shift performance. NOTE: For the absolute best shifting experience with Praxis Works rings we highly suggest using a KMC™, Shimano™ or Campagnolo™ chain.
SHIMANO™ — Buzz rings work great with the new Shimano 10/11sp chain and drivetrains (Di2 included.) These new Buzz rings are made to be mounted on either traditional 5-arm cranks, and now work with 4-arm w/hidden 5th cranks (SRAM Exogram.) *Our rings do not mount to the new Ultra 6800/DA9000 cranks with their new custom asymmetrical BCD. They also work great with traditional 5-arm mount aftermarket cranks such as THM, Rotor, Cannondale, Specialized, LOOK and FSA cranks.
SRAM™ — Buzz rings work great with the SRAM 10sp and “SRAM 22″ 11sp chain drivetrains when mounted to both traditional 5-arm SRAM cranks, and now work with 4-arm w/hidden 5th SRAM Exogram cranks. They also work great with traditional 5-arm mount aftermarket cranks such as THM, Rotor, Cannondale, Specialized, LOOK and FSA cranks.
- eTap – Yes, our rings work great with eTap.
- YAW FRONT DERAILEUR – Yes, our rings work great with SRAM “Yaw” front derailleur.
CAMPY™ — Our rings work great with Campy 10/11sp chain and drivetrains (EPS included.) The new Buzz rings are made to be mounted on either traditional 5-arm cranks, and now work with 4-arm w/hidden 5th cranks (SRAM Exogram.) *Our rings do not mount on Campy cranks with their proprietary Campy BCD/Design. Example…you would use a 3rd party crank like a Specialized, THM, Rotor, FSA, SRAM etc crank with our rings and then the chain and derailleurs are Campy.
BALANCED FOR SHIFT QUALITY
The highest overall shift quality is our primary goal and what we constantly strive for. In order to get there, we focus on a balance of five main attributes: Stiffness, Weight, Durability, Shift Features, and Price. Many other companies tend to focus on just one or two of these attributes, and then the shifting quality suffers. Praxis Cold Forged chainrings are simply the most balanced rings available in order to deliver the highest shift quality.
