At Eurobike we’re seeing some new bits from e.thirteen include a revamped wide range cassette, a dropper post coming in at a reasonable price and a new guide. Details below :
TRS Race Cassette
It seems like we just finished testing e.thirteen’s 9-44T cassette and they’ve already re-engineered a new one. Their latest TRS race cassette is functionally very similar but has even more range and features some updates and weight savings.
The huge 46T gear is machined from the one piece that serves as the top 3 gears. The two piece design snaps together and is e.thirteen claim they will with long cage SRAM and Shimano 11 speed derailleurs. The top 3 gears are aluminum and the lower 8 are steel, yet somehow it only weighs 280 grams. Cutaway view of the cassette. The price is 349 Euros, available starting in January.
TRS Dropper Seatpost
The fully mechanical telescopic seatpost comes in at a very competitive price of $ 299.
The main seal should easily be serviceable by hand. The knurled collar should make quick maintenance a breeze.A matchmaker compatible 1X style thumb paddle lever for the win…they just make sense. Fully mechanical, this looks like it should be a quick disconnect…Internal routing only. Cutaway view of the brake.
The TRS +, will be available from January in 30.9 and 31.6mm diameters, with 150mm of travel and four preset positions: 0mm, 75mm, 110mm and 150mm. Weight: 590 grams.
E.thirteen is also showing off a few new light duty guides. With clutch derailleurs keeping things rather tidy these days, there’s less and less need for super bulky chainguides.
