Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

Wolf Tooth’s CAMO (Chain­line And Ma­te­rial Op­ti­miza­tion) sys­tem takes the pain out of swap­ping chain­rings. It re­places a stan­dard di­rect-mount ring with a five-arm spi­der and sep­a­rate ring, which means you don’t have to re­move the crank arm ev­ery time you want to change sizes or re­place a worn ring. Spi­ders are avail­able to fit a range of dif­fer­ent brands’ cranks and they come in var­i­ous off­sets to suit stan­dard, Boost and fat­bike driv­e­trains. They can only be paired with Wolf Tooth’s five-hole CAMO rings, which, in­stead of us­ing reg­u­lar two-piece chain­ring bolts, use Torx T25 bolts (in­cluded) that thread di­rectly into the spi­der. This saves both weight and faff. There’s a com­pre­hen­sive choice of round and el­lip­ti­cal rings, in both alu­minium and stain­less steel, all of which use Wolf Tooth’s ‘Drop-Stop’ nar­row/wide pro­file, which we’ve found to pro­vide great chain re­ten­tion. In prac­tice, this sys­tem re­ally does work well and is a boon for reg­u­lar ring swap­pers. We’ve had no is­sues with bolts loos­en­ing or creak­ing and groan­ing un­der power. Should you man­age to lose a bolt, T25 re­place­ments are easy to come by and fit. Matt www.wolftooth­com­po­nents.com
