If you’re hammering you bike, week in, week out, then your kit can be getting a real beating. From uplift truck action to testing weather and track conditions, this can all takes it toll on your bike, especially the transmission. Enter Shimano Zee.
From the shifter to the rear derailleur, Shimano Zee is a truly high-class performer that really puts into question the need for the more expensive Saint groupset. It delivers in all areas, performance, weight and price; making it a real proposition for many riders. With some good options available, Zee can be a versatile choice with rear mech options for close ratio DH or wider (up to 36T) cassettes. Both use the proven clutch system (which makes such a difference to noise reduction from the drivetrain) and a compact design. The cranks are great value and are the only area where some riders may choose the stronger Saint model.
