NOW8 cassette Facile 12-speed | 9-52 teeth for SRAM XD incl. Derailleur wheels
Technically and visually a real eye-catcher! Because the motto is called padding instead of blots: With psychedelic paint and elaborate CNC-milled stands out the NOW8 Facile from the crowd!
A duet of aluminum and steel plays lightweight farmers in the cards and creates a robust, but with 325 grams (manufacturer) very light 12-speed cassette. The lightly loaded upper sprockets are made from a lightweight 7075 aluminum alloy. The heavily loaded lower sprockets are milled from wear-resistant, durable steel. But the NOW8 Facile convinces not only with the cleverly used combination of materials, the detail-loving workmanship speaks for itself. Unlike other lightweight cassettes, the cassette is optimized for perfect shifting with shift lanes. The translation bandwidth of Facile is the highest on the market at 578%.
SRAM's Eagle derailleurs are optimized for cassettes with a spread of 10 to 50 teeth. To further deliver top-level switching performance with the high range of facets, NOW8 has developed adjustable upper-position derailleur rollers. These have three eccentric mount and allow for mounting with an offset of 3 mm, 4 mm or 5 mm. With the help of the offset you can compensate for manufacturer-specific differences in length on the derailleur hanger and thus continue to smoothly switch into the smallest and largest pinion.
Optionally, you can use the roller with 14 teeth in the upper position, but then optionally require a 16-tooth roller for the lower position on the rear derailleur cage.
The asymmetrical derailleur wheels are now also available in our shop with 16 teeth and in other colors.
The cassette, with its 9-52 tooth bandwidth, fully boosts the capacity of the rear derailleur. For best possible gear changes, at least the upper derailleur roller must be replaced with the asymmetric derailleur roller included in the scope of delivery. The adjustment of the rear derailleur requires a precisely aligned derailleur hanger. The user should have very good skills in adjusting the range.

Do not install and adjust the derailleur roller under load! An installation of the asymmetrical derailleur rollers is not absolutely necessary, but helps to optimize the switching performance.
This cassette is a lightweight product. From a use with e-bikes or e-bike drives and the resulting high forces, we therefore strongly advise against! NOW8 does not assume any warranty in this case!
INFO: The cassette is technically not compatible with the Newmen GEN1 and Pi Rope XD freewheeling.
