If you are able to convert to a 1x or looking for upgrade in gearing, look no further. When the time came to change from a 3x to a 1x, this rear cassette did the job perfectly. The gearing helped make up for most of the loss of removing two front gears. There will be slight losses of some of the gearing, but that can be made up with proper training and technique.
The indexing of the gears was better than expected at this price point. It seemed like there would be an issue with getting the gears dialed in, but that was not a problem at all.
The color of this cassette has nothing to do with the performance, but it sure adds some style to the bike.
