When you bought your stock enduro rig a couple of years ago, you had no idea how big cassettes and gear ranges were about to get. If you're looking for an after-market option that'll expand your shifting options without requiring you to buy a new drivetrain, take a look at e*thirteen components' TRS Plus 11-Speed Cassette. With a whopping 9-44 tooth span — yes, that includes a rare 9-tooth cog — this behemoth cassette will give you miracle gears when you ask for them and the chance to accelerate hard into a descent, if your legs can keep up. Plus, it comes set up for an XD Driver body, so it's easy to swap between your quiver of bikes or to a future upgrade.

Range for the rest of us
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Eagle sounds great on paper, then you realize you need a whole new drive train to make it work. That's $500 for a new cassette, derailleur, crank, and chain. Enter the TRS+, now with TRS Race range it easily matches the capability of Eagle. I have ridden it for the past two weeks and cleaned climbs I couldn't quite get with my 10-42t, sustained 16% grade trails with rocky climbs. 10% more range on both sides compared to 10-42t, yes please. So far I have put 60 miles on it and it has been a lot of climbing fun, and a little less spinning out on the descents.
Good not great
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought this last season and have put considerable miles on it. Initial impressions were great—light, easy set-up, well made, and it looks awesome. The riding where I live is steep, so I love the 44t and rarely use the bottom range. However, the 9t on the low end definitely gives the pedal stroke a rough feel—almost like the cog is a hexagon instead of a circle. The only other critique I have is that you really need to stay on top of replacing your shifter cable. After a very minute amount of stretch, the shifting gets a little less reliable. I had an 11spd SRAM cassette prior and that seemed to be a lot more reliable and less sensitive. I don't know if it has something to do with the spacing of the cogs and if e13 didn't get the 1:1 ratio exactly right or what. All in all a solid component, although for the price it seems like sticking with SRAM may be a better way to go.
