Wolf Tooth Elliptical Cinch Chainring

Wolf Tooth Oval Cinch Chainring

You’ve probably seen one of these “ovalized” chainrings by now, and have been slapped in the face by curiousness like most of us have. Do things really make a difference in efficiency? The master minds over at Wolf Tooth Components aren’t promising you a pair of wings here, but they aren’t hesitant to relay that these elliptical rings do in fact have a much different feel to them that can provide more efficiency and a smoother power output. Their team of testers report the most noticeable benefits come on punchy singletrack and hills, allowing less shifting and snappier acceleration.

Wolf Tooth’s take on the Elliptical chainring has an ovality of 10% and timing of 112 degrees after TDC (top dead center). What this does is eliminates 2 teeth where your pedal stroke is the weakest and adds 2 teeth where your stroke exerts the most power. For example: a 34t chainring feels like a 32t in the weak part of your pedal stroke and a 36t in the part of the stroke where your legs have the most power.

This model of Wolf Tooth’s Elliptical Chainring fits Race Face Cinch type cranks such as Turbine, Next SL and Sixc. Available in sizes 26-34 have an ideal 49mm chainline vs the Race Face direct mount ring chainline of 51mm.

Wolf Tooth Elliptical Cinch Chainring Features:

  • Direct Mount
  • Made from 7075-T5 aluminum & black anodized
  • Drop-Stop asymmetrical tooth design for the best wear life, chain retention and mud clearance
  • 9, 10, 11 speed compatible
  • Claimed Weight: 28t - 54g, 30t - 58g, 32t - 63g, 34t - 69g
  • Designed and manufactured in the USA!
  • Note: Use a 10 or 11 speed chain. If using a 9 speed drivetrain, plan to use a 10 speed chain (it will shift great), as the 9 speed chain fits too loosely on the ring.

Definitely not biopace!
I wasn't sure what to expect from this but following recent knee surgery i wanted to try it out and see if it helped ease strain on my knee.
Took about 15mins of pedaling to get used to the difference when compared to a normal round chain ring. It definitely helps with pedal cadence when climbing and seems to help improve traction as the torque transfer from pedaling feels to be more constant.
Fitted easily to a race face cinch crankset, no problems with chain line for 11 speed chain and 11-42 XT cassette.

Amazing!
WTC makes wonderful products and this ring has their signature style. The ovality is not as high as other brands, but it offers a nice range for what I needed. The difference from a normal ring to an oval one is not really noticeable compared to a TRI style road ring, but offers a good advantage on the climbs and flats.

PROS: Lightweight, Attractive Design, Durable, Easy To Install

CONS: Limited Ovality

BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Upgrade, Racing

Worth It!
Great machining quality and runs smooth. Switching to an oval chain ring has kept my legs fresh after a long grind to the top of the trail and I seem to be pedaling in larger gears. 100% worth it.

So far so good
I am just getting back into riding and picked up a 2017 Specialized epic hardtail with 2x11 gearing. I wanted to simplify the drivetrain so I ditched the front derailleur and spider and went with the 32t Wolf Tooth. My first ride was very rooted and rocky and I never had an issue losing the chain. I was surprised that I rarely had to use my 42t rear sprocket and the bike seemed to climb better than ever. Can;t comment on wear because it is new but the chain rain quiet and true.

Ellip ring
First time using elliptical/oval ring... what a difference! This is a real upgrade, no hype! Next time your on a leg extension or lying leg curl machine, look at the cam. Only the old school ones are round, newer ones (past 15 yrs) are some form of egg shape to match the legs strength curve, which is not linear. I can't believe it took this long to apply it to biking! Plus, it not only allows you to generate more power, but is safer on your knees when they are at the weaker point in the rotation.
