The British/Polish team at Absolute Black aren’t the least bit shy about the virtues of their latest offering:

The lightest and most refined solution for Cannondale Hollowgram cranks, period. Hollowgram spiderless chainrings allow for flawless 1×9/10/11 drivetrain setup. Reliable, extremely light, stiff and clean looking on the bike [with a] better chainline compared to other “flat” ring offerings.

That and they’re pretty.

As with the rest of the Absolute Black range, the narrow/wide chainring is designed in the England and CNC-machined in Poland. The company is so confident in its tooth geometry that they recommend ditching the chain device altogether and are offering a guaranteed “minimum 12 months of excellent chain retention capabilities”- quite possibly an industry first.  Consumer-direct sales keep pricing reasonable, especially for an EU-made product:  £54/$75 in even sizes from 28t-34t.

  1. Like that Sir, like it a lot

  2. Does it come in pink? It’s the new noir.

  3. I’ve got one of their narrow/wide-thick/thin-whatever chainrings. It’s never dropped a chain. Well impressed.
