The new QXL is a Q-Ring with increased ovalisation, for riders requiring a greater effect. QXL rings do not replace standard Q-Rings, rather complement them, being optimized for different rider profiles. Not all riders have the same muscle build, riding form, or pedaling style. QXL rings are designed more for a type of rider than a specific cycling discipline. Team athletes predominantly reported an improved cycling experience, particularly when pedaling out of the saddle and accelerating. We have seen that QXL chainrings are most noticeable when riding in conditions of high power delivery and consistent maximum (peak) effort, like time trials, sprints, breakaways, riding styles that involve frequent out of the saddle riding, etc.
