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 made to mount to basically any industry standard road crank with a 110 or 130BCD, or in MTB 104/64. 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. For the absolute best shifting experience with Praxis Works rings we highly suggest using a KMC, Shimano, or Campy chain.
CAMPY — Our rings work great with Campy 10/11 chain/drivetrains (EPS included) when mounted on an aftermarket 110 or 130 BCD crank such as a Rotor/Cannondale/Specialized/LOOK/FSA crank. *Our rings do not mount to Campy cranks.
The New Shimano 11sp — Our rings work great with the new Shimano 11sp chain and drivetrains (Di2 included) when mounted on an aftermarket 110 or 130 BCD crank such as a Rotor/Cannondale/Specialized/LOOK/FSA crank. *Our rings do not mount to the new DA9000 crank.
SRAM “YAW” Front Derailleur — Yes, our rings shift great with the new SRAM “Yaw” front derailleur. Praxis rings must be mounted to an aftermarket 110 or 130 BCD crank such as a Rotor/Cannondale/Specialized/LOOK/FSA/SRAM crank. *NOTE – Our rings are not made/marketed for the brand new SRAM RED ‘Exogram’ crank as it has a custom mounting.
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.
