TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2021

microSHIFT goal for ADVENT X was to design a high-end drivetrain that is easy to own. That means easy to install, easy to adjust, and easy to ride.
The cassette has a wide 11-48T range, is lighter than its rivals at 424g, and best of all, it fits on a standard freehub body, making it easy to install.
The rear derailleur uses our innovative ratchet-and-pawl clutch, which can be adjusted to preference in minutes.
The shifter features modern ergonomics and an integrated friction pad for comfort and grip in challenging conditions.
All these features together make a drivetrain that feels incredible on the trail, and is also incredibly easy to own
