The Performance Difference
WickWërks Chainrings – The Performance Difference For Serious Cyclists
The photo shows a collection of 42 tooth chainrings (aka sprockets or gears) designed specifically for Mountain Bikes & Cyclocross by Synthesis, and produced by WickWerks. They call these (the shifting ones), “The World’s Fastest Shifting Chainrings” because they incorporate unique and aggressive shift ramps. The Technology is officially named Bridge Shift Technology and is covered by several patents like this one, and this one. The lower ring shown in the photo (middle) is a “Z-Ring”, a special single ring also designed here at Synthesis which includes several unique features and advantages over other 1X narrow-wide technologies. Patents for all of these technologies (and new bicycle derailleur technology) exist or are pending.
It’s cyclocross season, and again we see many of the top cyclists running these or similar WickWerks chainrings. These represent a performance advantage for riders as they tackle diverse terrain from dirt and grass and cement to deep sand and mud bogs. Then sometimes steep hills with muddy slippery off-camber being the worst. But, that’s cyclocross, and we love it!
Racers looking for a performance advantage are using these chainrings, because every little bit counts in the heat of competition. We see these shift when others won’t, and they shift faster.
Chainrings with this shift technology are available for many cycling disciplines: Road Bike, Mountain & Cyclocross. 1X rings are also available in many sizes. Visit WickWerks.com to get yours. Then, enjoy this fun technology and a whole lot more brought to you by Synthesis.
More With Bicycles
Chainrings are one area where Synthesis has made an impact in the bicycle industry. We’ve also assisted with several mountain bike front suspension forks, did one road bike fork, assisted a couple companies with brakes (both rim and disc), and we’ve contributed to saddle design, pedals, and efficiency improvement concepts. Even a crazy promotional feature for racing. We love working in the bicycle industry and we love seeing happy customers riding products we’ve worked on.
