Imagine, you can switch whenever you want, regardless of the external circumstances. And we're talking about shifting at full power. Up, down, whatever the trail requires. The advantage of the X-Glide drive is obvious, but if you think about it more carefully, it has an enormous effect on your driving experience. Error-free shifting means you never have to compromise on your speed and power on unpredictable off-road terrain.
And this is how it all works: TRUVATIV's crank engineers have thrown the old standards overboard and developed a new chainring geometry from scratch. They have matched the chainrings of different sizes exactly to each other and reworked the points where the chain and chainring meet. By matching the teeth of the chainring to the link pins of the chain (instead of the centre of the chainring) you get twice as many shifting options. You'll never shift into the wrong gear again. With X-Glide you will always find the right gear.
The cassette with its black JET finish not only looks good, it also offers optimal performance on every ride. The JET finish offers higher corrosion resistance.
The hybrid construction of the Mini Cluster cassette combines three small pinions, CNC milled from a single steel block, with another eight pinions, which are put together individually. The result: a lightweight and robust 10-42 cassette that is ideal for any trip.
