Question: Can I use a Shimano cassette with Campagnolo?

And, as Ive said before, there is 100 percent shifting compatibility between 11-speed cassettes. In other words, Shimano, SRAM, and Campagnolo 11-speed cassettes work just fine on each others drivetrains.

Are Shimano and Campagnolo cassettes interchangeable?

SRAM and Shimano cassettes, on either road or mountain bike, are interchangeable with each other as the spacing is the same between the sprockets. However, Campagnolo road cassettes will only work with Campagnolo drivetrains.

Can I use a Shimano 11 speed cassette work with Campagnolo?

Yes they are. The 11 speed cassettes of Shimano and Campagnolo have the same sprocket spacings and overall widths, so you can swap a Shimano wheel/freehub/11sp cassette with a Campagnolo wheel/freehub/11 speed cassette. Rest of the bike can be Shimano or Campag 11 speed, it doesnt matter.

Do Shimano shifters work with Campagnolo?

The Campagnolo 10 shifter with Shimano/SRAM 8 cassette and Shimano rear derailer will work perfectly, too, if you wish to forego the Shifmate. A SRAM 12-26 8 speed cassette 850 is $30 and weighs approx. 230 grams. You can also run a 9 speed chain with that setup.

Can you mix and match Shimano components?

It is possible to mix and match as long as you get components from the same generation. For example: 9000 Dura Ace, 6800 Ultegra, and 5800 105 are all cross compatible. Each have 11-speeds in the rear, use the same cable pull per shift and use the same front derailleur design.

How do I know what kind of cassette to buy?

The rule of thumb for choosing the right bike cassette is that the closer the number of “teeth” from the largest and the smallest cogs, the smaller the variation between gears, which ensures a smooth gear change.

Can I put a SRAM cassette on a Shimano hub?

Buyers are free to use a SRAM chain and cassette with their Shimano groupset, and vice versa, just as a SRAM chain can be paired with a Shimano cassette, and vice versa. SRAMs cassettes and chains are compatible with all of Shimanos groupsets, and vice versa.

Are Shimano shifters interchangeable?

In contrast, Dura-Ace 9000 and 9100 shifters and derailleurs are interchangeable. Shimanos Dura-Ace and Ultegra Di2 components are highly interchangeable provided they all bear the companys e-tube technology (the one exception being the original Dura-Ace 7970 groupset, which uses a unique wiring harness).

What Shimano components are the best?

Shimano 105 is considered Shimanos first performance groupset, and for many people it is the best option in combining performance, value and longevity. Ultegra is next and is very similar to Dura-Ace in terms of performance, though Dura-Ace is lighter.

Why are SRAM cassettes so expensive?

The SRAM cassettes are lighter because of the lack of spiders connecting the different cogs, and the smaller driver. Thats why they are so expensive too. and at least the highest end stuff (like eagle, possibly some of the 11spd stuff) is machined from a single piece, and isnt an assembly component.

Is SRAM owned by Shimano?

SRAM Corporation is a privately held bicycle component manufacturer based in Chicago, USA. SRAM is an acronym comprising the names of its founders, Scott, Ray, and Sam. Shimano, Inc. is a Japanese multinational manufacturer of cycling components, fishing tackle, and rowing equipment.

What size cassette do pros use?

Pros often use a 55×11-tooth high gear for time trials. On flat or rolling stages they might have 53/39T chainrings with an 11-21T cassette. In moderate mountains they switch to a large cog of 23T or 25T. These days, theyve joined the big-gear revolution like many recreational riders.

What freehub body does SRAM NX use?

HyperGlide The NX cassette uses Shimanos HyperGlide (HG) freehub body instead of SRAMs XD Driver found on the rest of the brands 12-speed cassettes. This means the cassettes range is only 11-50t compared to 10-52t for the more expensive XD versions.

Can I mix SRAM and Shimano?

Most importantly, YOU CANNOT mix Shimano and SRAM hydraulic brake parts. Its more than a performance issue — its a safety issue. The SRAM rear derailleur (mech) will not work with a Shimano shifter as is; the cable pull and shift activation ratios are not the same between the two systems.

Which is better Shimano or SRAM?

Shimano and SRAM both make quality products, but their approach and styles are different. Looking at the current component landscape, it can be said that Shimano is generally the more conservative of the two. Over the last decade, SRAM has pursued drivetrain innovation more aggressively.

Is Shimano Deore better than Alivio?

Alivio make a smaller and a larger footprint pedal whereas Deore supply two larger-footprint pedals. Under the Deore name is also a trail-specific SPD pedal which offers a more aggressive looking design with a wide platform to offer better support and grip on the trails.

Is SRAM cassette better than Shimano?

I have run a pretty wide mix of components over the years, and IMO a Shimano cassette shifts faster, smoother, and runs quieter even on an otherwise all SRAM system. Having said that, the SRAM cassettes work well enough that I never worry about it or barely even notice the difference.

Is SRAM drivetrain better than Shimano?

These drivetrains offered a 500% gear range, eliminating the need for 2x front chainrings. Shimano now offers 12-speed cassettes with a 10-51t range in their top three drivetrain setups. SRAM has a 10-52t cassette, so they still sneak ahead with a slight advantage over the Shimano updates.
