Shimano Ultegra R8000 11-Speed Cassette 11-32T
Using the brand's vast technical knowledge, sophisticated materials and a wide range of gear ratios, the Shimano Ultegra R8000 11-Speed Cassette 11-32T is an ideal choice for riders looking to conquer challenging alpine ascents or the local 20% power climb.
The 11-32-tooth, 11-speed sprocket configuration provides a huge selection of gear-inch options allowing the rider to fine-tune their cadence precisely in line with the topography of the parcours. The 32-tooth biggest sprocket allows for easier climbing of the stiffest mountain passes while the 11-tooth smallest sprocket offers a big gear for thundering along flat valley roads.
The sprocket's teeth are chamfered via Shimano's HYPERGLIDE technology, giving them optimal profiles to provide slicker, smoother gear shifts, no matter the riding conditions. The sprockets have a minimal construction and are clustered together on "spider" carrying frames to reduce weight while maintaining stiffness and durability.
