Introducing the CAMO Direct Mount Spider for Shimano

Introducing the CAMO Direct Mount Spider for Shimano

We’re thrilled to introduce the CAMO Direct Mount Spider for Shimano. This Spider is designed to work with Shimano mountain bike cranksets that have a removable spider. This includes several XTR, XT, SLX, Deore Boost and Super Boost Cranksets.

We created CAMO (Chainline and Material Optimization) for direct mount style cranksets. Easily swap between chainrings on a whim and enjoy a variable selection of chainring options, all compatible with your selected CAMO Spider or BashSpider. With no nuts or spacers involved, swapping chainrings takes less time than brewing a cup of your favorite beverage.

Wolf Tooth's new CAMO Direct Mount Spider for Shimano built out with a CAMO Round Aluminum Chainring on an Ibis mountain bike.

The CAMO System provides key rider advantages by offering up to 4 different chainline options for one direct mount style (for instance, Shimano Direct Mount) and the ability to swap chainrings without having to remove your crankset. CAMO Spiders are made from 7075 Aluminum, known for its strength, stiffness, and light feel. The following chart provides a visual breakdown of the CAMO system:

Each of our four CAMO Chainrings features the same Drop-Stop technology as our mountain, CX, gravel, and road chainrings, which ensures maximum chain retention in all conditions.

Wolf Tooth’s new CAMO Direct Mount for Shimano joins a large family of CAMO-compatible brands, including Cannondale, E13, Race Face Cinch, Specialized S-Works, SRAM, and White Industries. Learn more about the CAMO System here. CAMO Direct Mount Spiders for Shimano are available now.
