If Eagle didn’t already have a wide enough gear range for you, SRAM have just released a new 10-52T Eagle cassette with a massive 520%, giving you torque you never knew you needed, or the option to go up a chainring size whilst maintaining about the same bail-out as what you had on your 50T cassette. If you want to upgrade to the 50T cassette and you’ve got an AXS groupset, your derailleur is already compatible with the 52T cassette. If you’re on a mechanical Eagle groupset, you’ll need to pickup a new rear derailleur (and maybe the new carbon GX Crankset…).


“The new 10-52t cassette gives riders more than ever before, with an unprecedented 520 percent range. For a little extra to avoid the hike-abike, a little more in the “spin to win” game, the XG-1295 cassette also allows stronger riders to increase their chainring size if they want.”


The new cassettes are available in black, gold, rainbow and an all-new copper colourway.
