A sprocket is a profiled wheel with teeth that guides the chain.

Sometimes the number of teeth on the sprocket (its size) will be written/engraved on the sprocket, or you can determine the size by counting the number of teeth.

For more information about how sprockets change gear ratios and gearing, please see the gearing article.
