Lievin Malfait and Gilbert Storme, designers-developers of the PowerOval non- circular chainwheel, are Belgian engineers, Masters of Science in Mechanical Engineering. They combine an extensive background and in- depth knowledge of (bio-)mechanics, engineering, manufacturing, CAD design and mathematical modelling what enables them to create “Science Based Premium Non-Circular Chainrings” and other bike parts.
Malfait L., Storme G., and Derdeyn M. are the authors of scientific studies and publications about non-circular chainrings for cycling.
See “Science“, the reference list.
The PowerOval is a spin-off of their scientific work.
