Oval POWERTrac chainring for CAMO Spider made of stainless steel
The oval chainring not only shines with its aesthetic finish and low weight: Thanks to the patented Narrow-Wide-Design, the ideal 1-speed setup is achieved, the chain is prevented from falling off the chainring. With this setup, your dream of a perfect drivetrain comes true!
According to the quality standards of the Wolf Tooth brand, this product scores with its undisputed design, absolute reliability and high resistance. The patented Drop-Stop® Wide-Narrow tooth profile ensures that the chain runs safely in your single setup. At the same time, mud and dirt are prevented from sticking - the result is maximum efficiency! To achieve highest functionality even under extreme conditions, the combined use with a clutch rear derailleur (with rear derailleur damping) is recommended.
Stainless steel chainrings are super robust and many times more durable than comparable aluminium chainrings. This chainring reflects Wolf Tooth's constant strive for lasting quality: It is made from 416 stainless steel and is thus much more robust than products made from the usually used steel of the AISI 300 class (stainless steel grade A).
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 required.
By mounting a Spider + Wolf Tooth single chainring, you can perfectly adjust the chainline to your riding habits, achieve higher shifting precision and at the same time reduce costs when the chainring has to be replaced. Icing on the cake: The spiders are available in different colours and pimp the look of your bike at the same time!
Wolf Tooth's innovative PowerTrac Elliptical Design (PTE) focuses on optimizing power 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 use an oval chainring on their 1x drivetrain for one simple reason: This design has been proven to deliver improved riding characteristics.
The concept behind oval shaped chainrings can be summed up as follows: The biomechanical power output when pedaling varies during a pedal stroke; at positions where power is higher, the chainring has a larger diameter. The resulting larger drive area correspondingly converts power into greater forward drive. At positions where there is less power output, the smaller chainring diameter maximizes pedal stroke efficiency. This means a higher pedaling power with every pedal rotation.
Wolf Tooth points out that using the Elliptical chainring results in steadier torque at the rear wheel, as downward spinning is reduced and pedal rotation is smoother and more efficient. The smoother torque on the rear wheel provides better traction and consistent momentum - ideal for tough climbs and headwinds.
If you are looking for a top-class chainring that clearly beats the competition in terms of durability and longevity and unfolds its full performance in a 1x setup, then you have made the right choice!
- Compatible with Wolf Tooth CAMO Spiders. NOT compatible with other chainring mounts!
- For 1x9, 1x10, 1x11 and 1x12 drivetrains (including SRAM Eagle™).
- Compatible with all 10-, 11- and 12-speed chains (except Shimano 12-speed chains).
- Use of a 10-speed chain is recommended on a 9-speed drivetrain (shifts reliably on a 9-speed drivetrain and sits tighter on the chainring, holding the chain securely).
