Specialite T.A. started life with the production of bottle cages 60 years ago, since which time it has been making custom drinking bottles and a vast range of chain rings. The lathe teeth cutting machinery is completely updated but it is the same manufacturing procedure as years ago. 7075 T6 heat treated alloy is anodized, laser engraved with all relevant date as well as a marking to indicate the correct orientation.
This is the most accurate way of producing a chainring, whether it is for a pattern Campagnolo, Shimano, SRAM or any other type of chainset. The final polishing process produces a jewel-like piece of engineering that will remain corrosion resistant and offer lifetime service. Outer 8, 9 and 10spd rings are supplied with a screw fitting chainstop. Middle rings have 4 UD pins for double ramps that radically improve shifting.
