Shovel chain ring

As all of Shovel products are champions in weight reduction, as well as in toughness, our chainrings are no exception. With 38 grams, this Oval Fat/Slim Chainring is the total weight saver.

With open bolt design, we have saved some weight, but have not lost structural integrity. By removing the material around the bolts, we have gained a lot of clearance when removing the chainring, so there is no more unnecessary crank removal.

Shovel chainrings have been tested for over 2 years before their release, to ensure the best chainring design and quality.

Fat tooth design was done by adding extra surfaces off of which mud can slide, retaining the chain in every condition.

However, if you are riding bike park, some unexpected front flips can occur, so we would recommend getting a chain guide, just in case of some eject event.

Furthermore, we are looking for partners to spread our story and philosophy.

Thank you for your time and keep on shredding!
