9-speed performance from precision made HG sprockets and ultra-narrow chain. No increase in sprocket cluster width allows retrofit to 8-speed freehubs. Computer-designed HG (HyperGlide) sprockets insure fast and quiet down-shifts as well as instant up-shifts without hesitation.
The 9-speed sprockets are made to the same specifications as those used in the 9-speed Dura-Ace, Ultegra, and 105 groups, so there's complete interchangeability.
