GARBARUK chainring Melon Direct Mount oval | 1-way narrow-wide Cannondale Hollowgram crank | Ai compatible
Garbaruk is a company from Ukraine that has its roots in motorsport.
Design and manufacture of tuning parts for engines and chassis were the hobbyhorse of the Garbaruk company. The Garbaruk brothers, who are enthusiastic about cycling, incorporate the experience and knowledge they have gained into the production of bicycle parts. All steps from design and production to surface finishing take place under one roof.
7075-T6 aluminum from Germany is the raw material from which the Garbaruk chainrings are elaborately CNC-milled. The chainrings have some features that differ from competitors.
In order to keep the chain securely in position even without a chain guide, the teeth have a special profile of narrow and wide teeth. To ensure that this is also the case under very rough and rough conditions, the teeth of the Garbaruk chainrings are made approx. 40% longer than normal teeth. Furthermore, the teeth are shaped so that the chainring works very well even in muddy conditions. Dirt and mud are effectively removed when the chain overflows.
We recommend using a rear derailleur with increased cage tension (SRAM Type 2-3, Shimano Shadow +), which reliably holds the chain in position and prevents it from jumping off.
Direct mount assembly
The chainring is mounted directly on the crank arm and replaces the possible previous spider.
The result is a tidy look that saves weight and at the same time offers excellent rigidity.
These chainrings, specially developed for Cannondale bikes with Ai frame geometry, have an optimized chain line that harmonizes perfectly with the rear end of the bikes. (e.g. Cannondale F-SI, Scalpel SI, Beast of the East, Bad Habit)
VCLT (Variable ChainLine Technology)
Garbaruk works with all direct mount chainrings with a changing chain line that depends on the number of teeth. A fixed chain line common with other manufacturers, but it must be chosen so that even larger chainrings do not touch the chain stay.
The smaller the Garbaruk chainring, the closer it is to the chainstay.
This makes the chain line even better because the chainring is almost centered on the cassette.
Melon - oval shape
The ovalization of the chainring increases the performance by varying the drive train and optimizing the resistance. When kicking with the legs, the natural strengths and weaknesses are brought into harmony. In this way, better use of the stronger muscle groups is achieved and a balance is created in the weaker muscles on the way to work (lower stroke).
