The oval chainring Wolf Tooth Elliptical Direct Mount for SRAM cranks not only shines with its aesthetic, super-lightweight design: Thanks to the patented Narrow-Wide Design, the ideal single 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 accordingly the Wolf Tooth Direct Mount chainring for SRAM cranks is designed to be robust and powerful. After all, the motto is: We want to ride - and not fiddle with the chain!
According to 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 getting stuck - the result is maximum efficiency! To achieve maximum functionality even under extreme conditions, use with a clutch derailleur (with rear derailleur damping) is recommended.
Like all high-end custom bodies and unwaveringly robust bikes, Wolf Tooth chainrings are manufactured to the highest quality standards at the company's headquarters in Minnesota, USA. Anodized finish and engraved lettering crown each chainring and are the hallmark of this excellent craftsmanship.
Wolf Tooth's innovative PowerTrac Elliptical Design (PTE) focuses entirely on optimizing performance and traction - and builds 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 single drive for a simple reason: This design has been proven to deliver improved riding performance.
The concept behind oval shaped chainrings can be summarized as follows: The biomechanical power output while pedaling 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 positions where there is less power, the smaller chainring diameter maximizes the efficiency of the pedal stroke. In other words, it means more pedaling power for each pedal revolution.
Wolf Tooth points out that using the elliptical chainring results in more consistent torque on the rear wheel, as spinning is reduced on the down stroke and pedal rotation becomes smoother and more efficient. The more consistent torque at the rear wheel provides better traction and consistent swing performance - ideal for hard climbs and headwinds.
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.
