Tippie Rides Rotor's R-Hawk Crank System
I'm going to attempt not to sound too tech-nerdy here: the oval is positioned at 180* difference than Biopace in the rider's point of maximum power. This design actually takes strain off the knees, and functionally smooths out the rider's power output. You can read white papers about Oval rings and cycling performance all day long with differing outcomes: the difference is (and what Rotor specializes in,) is our ability to position in the correct position for the rider to get maximum benefit from it. Hope that helps!

Tippie Rides Rotor's R-Hawk Crank System
@KiwiXC: Hey sorry it came across as an advert! We just started doing the blog thing, (first go at it!) so our default is to do what we know: product. We'll get better at it, promise. ;)

Tippie Rides Rotor's R-Hawk Crank System
We had the same question! That's why we got Cedric Gracia to help us develop the crank, and stellar riders like Brett Tippie & Phil Kmetz to do their best to destroy it! It's been cool to see it take the best they can throw at it- Brett just sent some pics of his with a bunch of - if not miles, vertical feet- on it, and he's still stoked and doing his best to destroy them. We get our product feedback from these guys so we can keep making it better.

Tippie Rides Rotor's R-Hawk Crank System
Stoked to see so many people engaged in the conversation! To clarify, we make chainrings in a variety of interfaces (cinch, GXP, BB30, etc,) but the only way we could make an *adjustable* position oval ring was to change the interface a little, to make it work even better for our riders. (That adjustable chainring position is a thread unto itself.) The other cool thing is we use a super hard 7055 alloy for our rings- (and cranks, but we're talking rings here,) so they hold up to about 10x the abuse of a less sturdy aluminium. Despite the fact that these are made in Spain with the highest level of manufacturing assurance, we worked hard to keep the price at a level we can all appreciate.
