What crankset did Bradley Wiggins use on his TT bike

In a picture on Facebook it looked like his chainring was elliptical, was it just an optical illusion?

I can't tell you the chainset he uses, but it is elliptical. Definitely not an optical illusion. He used one for most of his races.

Oh...that kind of crankset.

Anyway, those look like Rotor Q rings or something like it.
