Rotor has been machining wild looking cranks & oval chainrings in Spain since 1994 when they set out to improve pedaling efficiency by eliminating the dead spot in the pedal stroke. Twenty-five years on, Rotor is still cranking out oval chainrings under the name Q Rings as well as a number of standard & power meter cranksets. To celebrate 25 years, they are giving away 25 sets of oval Q Rings, but you need to act fast as the contest ends tomorrow.
25 years of Rotor and 25 sets of Q Rings up for grabs!
Whether you’ve never tried oval rings or just need a new set, it’s worth getting in on the Rotor 25th anniversary for a chance at a free set for road, gravel, cyclocross, or mountain biking. There are little tons of different Q Ring options available. They’ve been ridden to a Tour de France win, among many other on & off-road victories. We’ve even raced them through some muddy cyclocross testing!
To get in on the contest, you’ll just need to: 1. Like Rotor’s 25th contest post on Facebook or Instagram. 2. Share the post publicly from your account. 3. Tag at least two friends in the process. 4. And use the hashtag #25yearsROTOR. Rotor also suggests following them on Facebook or Instagram, presumably to see who wins, although that doesn’t seem to be required to enter. The entry deadline is tomorrow, Nov 20, so do it now.
And in the meantime, if you have any questions for Rotor themselves about crazy, innovative drivetrain ideas (think: hydraulic shifting, 1×13, or super oval QXL chainrings) just drop us a line here. Rotor are joining our Ask A Stupid Question series, so over the next week or so, we’re taking your suggestions for the burning questions on Rotor tech.
