One of the advantages to the Wolf Tooth Components CAMO chainring system is that from crank to crank, the chainrings are the same. That means that WTC can simply design a new spider to fit rarer cranks, giving their owner more choices in chainrings without creating a ton of extra SKUs for dealers.
The latest to join the WTC CAMO party is the new spider for White Industries cranks. Specifically, this was optimized for the MR30 cranks which have a 3mm boost offset. The 52mm chainline of the spider is best used for these cranks, but WTC says they can also be used on the White Industries R30 and G30 cranksets which have a 49.5mm chainline.
Once the spider is mounted to the direct mount attachment for the crankset, the chainrings can be swapped using only a T25 Torx. The design even lets you wiggle the chainring around the crank arm preventing you from removing it to change out the ring. Depending on what pedals you’re running and chainring size, you may have to remove the driveside pedal though.
Offered only in black, the White Industries CAMO spider is priced at $29.95 and sold in the M5 (minus 5mm – Boost) offset only. Made from 7075-T6 aluminum in Minnesota, the spider has a claimed weight of 31g and is compatible with both round and elliptical CAMO chainrings in aluminum and stainless steel.
