E*Thirteen Goes Massive With New Cassettes
It seems that the cassette range wars have heated up again, with e*thirteen releasing the latest TRS+ 11 and 12 speed units. Of note in particular is the 12-speed version, which boasts a massive 556% range. Get all the details and specs from the source after the break.
Since day one, e*thirteen’s TRS Plus Cassettes have delivered more range, more value, and less weight than their competition. Now, our TRS Plus Cassettes feature revised architecture, better shifting, and are available in multiple configurations.
New to the lineup is the TRS Plus 9-50T 12 Speed Cassette with an unmatched 556% range at only 398 grams. The TRS Plus 9-46T 11 Speed Cassette offers the same 511% range, but now uses 10 steel cogs and 1 aluminum, maximizing durability and uprating it for eBike use.
New cassette architecture no longer needs proprietary tools for installation, updated shift features deliver better shifting and long-term durability, and the two-piece design allows for individual replacement of parts as they wear.
