The Absolute Black Direct-Mount Oval Ring is ready to rip it up with its beautifully machined, lightweight and stiff construction. Simply put, this is the best looking spiderless ring we've ever seen. Its special direct mount interface is compatible with SRAM GXP cranks that feature removable spiders. Simply remove your existing spider and bolt this ring on in its place. The spiderless setup is super clean and saves a great deal of weight over a normal spidered setup. Oval rings spin smoother and promote optimal power transfer, eliminating dead spots in the pedal stroke. The Spiderless GXP Oval Ring has AbsoluteBlack's specialized narrow-wide tooth profile which retains the chain snugly, preventing dreaded chain droppage. Perfect for single ring or singlespeed use.

I used this chainring to replace a worn out SRAM CX-1 chainring. This one performs very well, but I really could feel the difference when climbing, especially on steep hills. In a 1 x setup, it never dropped the chain despite riding on a commuter bike through town and on some rough bike paths. Overall, I will replace my next set of chainrings with Absolute Black. Love it!
So far, I really like my 40t chainring. Simple to mount and easy to spin. I don't have a strong opinion on this vs a round ring yet. This is my first oval ring & first 1x drivetrain. I will say this, I don't notice any difference in my cadence/pedal stroke.
With only a few rides on the new ring, I can't speak to its durability, but in all other aspects, I'm impressed. I initially bought the thing out of curiosity regarding the new wave of oval rings, and with this as my first experience, it really does all they claim. After installation (which was satisfyingly easy), I did one of my staple rides, and found a better sense of traction, as well as a personal best on the ride. I went up to a 38-tooth from the 36 round I had on the bike, and the jump was not heinous, though the gearing is slightly steeper. Overall, I'd highly recommend it.
