Overview

9-42T - 10 Speed

The TRS+ Cassette is all about range. Using a unique 3 piece assembly, the TRS+ cassette offers 42 tooth (10 speed) range. The largest two (10 speed) cogs are precision machined from aluminum and locked onto a SRAM XD driver body. The remaining eight steel cogs lock into place with a chain whip. The front cogs are shared on the 10 speed and 11 speed versions and high wear parts are available individually which means replacing worn parts, or upgrading from 10-11 speed is possible without buying a whole new cassette.


9-46T - 11 Speed

Our all-new TRS+ Cassette offers impressive Eagle-beating range and crisp shifting performance on both SRAM and Shimano drivetrains. Using a unique two-piece assembly and our exclusive 9t cog, the TRS+ cassette offers a massive 9-46 tooth range, which means you can clean steeper climbs, and then blast the descents!

As common with Eagle drivetrains, a larger rear cassette also means a larger chainring up front...aka, less ground clearance. An advantage of the TRS+ Cassette is that our 9-46t range accomplishes the same gearing, but with a smaller front chainring and MORE ground clearance, something even more important on today's "long, low, slack" bikes.

The largest cogs are precision machined from aluminum and attach to a SRAM XD driver body. The remaining eight steel cogs lock into place with a chain whip.


Both parts of the TRS+ cassette are individually replaceable and available individually, which means that replacing worn parts is possible without buying a whole new cassette.

FAQ

My TRS+ cassette is creaking, how can I fix that?

We have found that certain freehub bodies may interact with our cassette in such a way that noise can occur under load. We have made changes to newer production runs of the cassette to solve this potential problem.

Follow these steps to cure your creak, if you detailed install and removal instructions you can find those here: service.bythehive.com/c/Cassette


Step 1:

Grease under the 9-10t cogs on the steel portion of the cassette.


Step 2:

If greasing doesn't solve your issue, contact your nearest distributor for a creak fix kit. The kit includes a spacer and small PTFE washer.

Remove your cassette, install the silver spacer under the cassette.

Re-install the aluminum cogs and lockring.

Install the PTFE washer and make sure it is seated on the XD driver.

Re-install the steel portion of the cassette.




Are TRS race cassette parts compatible with TRS+ cassettes?

They are not. Because we wanted the race level cassette to be as light as possible, we had to go back to the drawing board with what we learned from the plus level cassette and change a few things in order to hit our weight target. As a result the way the two pieces of the cassette connect are different between the race and plus level cassettes.




What derailleur cage length do you recommend with the 11sp cassette?

For Shimano drivetrains both GS (short) and SGS (long) cage derailleurs will work. We typically recommend long cage versions as they tend to shift a bit smoother.

For Sram there is only one cage length option in the 11sp derailleur lineup.




I can't get my cassette to lock, what's wrong?

In most cases, when a cassette won't turn to lock together is it because the steel portion of the cassette is not fully seated onto the XD driver. We want to make sure the fit between the cassette and XD drive is snug, so make sure you are greasing the inner diameter of the cassette and pressing firmly to seat the steel portion. The locking mechanism will not require a lot of force, so if you are having to strain to lock the two pieces together, it is likely because the steel portion is not flush against the aluminum portion.




Which chain do you recommend for your cassette?

We recommend either Shimano or Sram chains. That doesn't mean others won't work, we just have not spent a ton of time testing every other option out there.

We do recommend using a new or nearly new chain when you install your cassette.
