NOW8 cassette Facile 12-speed | 9-52 teeth compatible for SRAM XD incl. Rear derailleur wheels
Technically and optically a real eye-catcher! Because the motto is padding instead of spilling: with a psychedelic coating and elaborate CNC milling, the NOW8 Facile stands out from the crowd!
A duet of aluminum and steel plays light builders in the cards and creates a robust, but with 325 grams (manufacturer's information) very light 12-speed cassette. The lightly loaded top sprockets are made of a light 7075 aluminum alloy. The heavily used lower sprockets are milled from wear-resistant, durable steel. But the NOW8 Facile not only convinces with the clever combination of materials, the detailed workmanship speaks for itself. In contrast to other lightweight cassettes, the cassette is optimized for perfect switching processes with switching gates. The Facile translation range is the highest on the market at 578%.
SRAM's Eagle derailleurs are optimized on cassettes with a spread of 10 to 50 teeth. In order to provide you with top-level switching performance with the wide range of the Facile, NOW8 has developed adjustable derailleur rollers for the upper position. These have three eccentric mount and enable 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 shift smoothly into the smallest and largest sprocket.
Optionally, you can also use the roller with 14 teeth in the upper position, but then you need an optional 16 tooth roller for the lower position on the rear derailleur cage.
The asymmetrical rear derailleur rollers are now also available in our shop with 16 teeth and in other colors.
With its range of 9-52 teeth, the cassette fully exploits the capacity of the rear derailleur. For the best possible switching operations, at least the upper rear derailleur roller must be replaced with the asymmetrical rear derailleur roller included in the scope of delivery. Adjusting the rear derailleur requires a precisely aligned derailleur hanger. The user should have very good skills in adjusting gears.

Do not install and adjust the rear derailleur roller under load! It is not absolutely necessary to install the asymmetrical rear derailleur rollers, but it does help to optimize the switching performance.
This cassette is a lightweight product. We therefore strongly advise against using it with e-bikes or e-bike drives and the resulting high forces! In this case, NOW8 does not assume any guarantee!
INFO: For technical reasons, the cassette is not compatible with the Newmen GEN1 and Pi Rope XD freewheels.
