The oval Wolf Tooth CAMO aluminium chainring not only stands out for its aesthetic finish and low weight: thanks to the patented narrow-width design, the ideal 1-speed setup is achieved and the chain is prevented from falling off the chainring. With this setup, your dream of the perfect drive becomes reality!
The winter months in Minneapolis, the production site of the US company, are tough, and this Wolf Tooth aluminium chainring is designed to be robust and powerful. It is optimised for use with Wolf Tooth's CAMO Spider. After all, the motto is: We want to ride - and not fiddle with the chain!
In accordance with the quality standards of the Wolf Tooth brand, this product scores with its undisputed design, absolute reliability and high durability. The patented Drop-Stop Wide-Narrow tooth profile ensures that the chain runs safely in your 1-speed setup. At the same time it prevents mud and dirt from sticking - the result is maximum efficiency! To achieve maximum functionality even under extreme conditions, we recommend the use with a clutch rear derailleur (with rear derailleur damping).
Like all high-end custom bodies and unwaveringly robust bikes, Wolf Tooth chainrings are manufactured at the company's headquarters in Minnesota, USA. Anodised finish and engraved lettering crown each chainring and are the hallmark of this excellent craftsmanship. If you are a demanding bike enthusiast looking for unsurpassed durable and perfectly functional premium quality for your 1-speed drive - you will find it at Wolf Tooth.
Wolf Tooth has developed the CAMO (Chainline and Material Optimisation) range so that you can replace the original Direct Mount chainring with the Spider/chainring setup if necessary.
By mounting the Spider + Wolf Tooth single chainring you can adjust the chainline to suit your riding habits, achieve greater shifting precision and reduce costs when replacing the chainring. The icing on the cake: The spiders are available in different colours and pimp the look of your bike!
Wolf Tooth's innovative PowerTrac Elliptical Design (PTE) focuses entirely on optimising performance and traction, building on the valuable experience of precision mechanics who, like you, love to sit in the saddle and demand the highest standards!
Many bikers now rely on an oval chainring for their 1-speed drivetrain for one simple reason: this design has been proven to deliver improved riding characteristics.
The concept behind oval chainrings can be summed up as follows: The biomechanical power output while pedalling varies during a pedal stroke; in positions where the power is higher, the chainring has a larger diameter. The larger drive surface means that the force is converted into a larger forward drive. At the points where there is less power, the smaller chainring diameter maximises the efficiency of the pedal stroke. This means a higher overall pedalling power with each pedal revolution
Wolf Tooth points out that the use of the elliptical chainring results in more constant torque on the rear wheel, as spinning is reduced during downward movement and pedal rotation becomes smoother and more efficient. The more consistent torque at the rear wheel provides better traction and consistent momentum - ideal for hard climbs and headwinds.
So if you're looking for a top-of-the-range chainring that beats its competitors in terms of durabilit, as well as longevity and delivers its full performance in a single set-up, this is the right choice!
