It's true. 13s is mostly about offering better steps in the gearing, rather than increasing the gear range, TBH.

Hi! Here's a link to the gear ratios. We agree that the jump at the end is pretty big, which is why we cut the gap from Eagle in half. You can find the direct comparison at the bottom of the that link. It's pretty cool!

We also spread out the lower cluster a lot compared to competitors; we worked with our pro riders to see what gearing they tended to use, then made cogs *that size, rather than simply working off a ratio.

We did a lot of testing, and because there is less chain wrap on the bigger cogs, there is generally less wear. We did the same on the road cassettes that have been in production for a couple of years, and they wear really well, from what we've seen.
