Exclusive Look: EAI Gold Medal Pro Chainring Oct 28, 2009


actual finish will be identical to the Gold Medal Pro Cog

Here’s a Prolly is not Probably exclusive look at the new EAI Gold Medal Pro Chainring. Euro Asia has been developing it to be paired with their Gold Medal Pro cog. The ring, cog and a new model v chain will be the ultimate track-racing drive-train.

Handmade in the USA from heat-treated, bearing grade stainless steel with a hardness scale of RoC 45-47, this ring will provide maximum stiffness and strength. To top it off, EAI will be giving it a Ti-Nitride coating that will increase lubricity and hardness by 100%. The ring is being tested by British Cycling at the moment and will be available in 2010.

Available in 46t – 53t in 144bcd only.

The prototype pictured above doesn’t show the actual finish of the ring. The production model will have the same mirror-polished finish as the Gold Medal Pro Cog (pictured below).

I cannot wait to see the final product. The cogs remain one of the most beautiful modern-day track components to date. Leave it to EAI to develop such an awesome ring. Thanks to Milwaukee for the information!
