Chainless riding means flowing sensations, absence of pedal kickback, extremely good braking performance and more.
It also mean low bike “reactivity”, with a “more travel” feeling and saggy suspension while pumping.
OCHAIN active spider can remove or reduce pedal kickback, isolating transmission effects from rear suspension when needed. Coming to the setup possibilities, there is no right or wrong, but a need for a deep comprehension of what makes things flow at their best.
Considering different riding preferences, OCHAIN now comes with three degree optional setups: 4°, 6°, 9° plus an optional 12° to buy separately.
Balancing pedaling efficiency and gravity performances we reached our compromise. Compromises are due, contemporary mountain bikes are all born from them. Pedal kickback is one of the consequences, affecting rear suspension performance, despite the best engineers’ efforts.
