According to Wolf Tooth founder Mike Pfeiffer: “We have been discussing a compact chain guide product for a couple of years but we did not want to introduce another me-too product. We did a lot of development and testing and we are now ready to deliver something revolutionary in both ease of use and performance”.

While a chain guide is not needed for most XC and trail riding with a Wolf Tooth wide/narrow chainring, gravity riders, and competitors who cannot afford any risk of a chain drop or ride often in muddy conditions are often adding a compact guide for increased chain security.



GnarWolf Features:
  • No shims needed for chainline adjustment. Expanding elliptical mandrel system allows perfect chainline alignment and takes just seconds to set. This is the fastest and easiest chain guide to setup.
  • More rigid than competing products. A flexible chain guide simply cannot effectively guide the chain.
  • Independent adjustment of height and chainline with cage pivot for chain removal. All adjustments made quickly with 4mm hex key.
  • Optimized for use with elliptical/oval chainrings.
  • Accommodates chainline from approximately 48 mm to 54 mm for use with standard and Boost bikes.
  • Easy installation without removing crank arms.
  • Patent pending design.
  • Customized Wolf Tooth bolt colour options.
  • CNC machined 7075-T6 aluminium with stainless steel hardware.
