Description of Wolf Tooth 49T GC Cog and Wolfcage Kit for Shimano 11-speed - Cassette Cog / Extension Sprocket - incl. 18T Sprocket, Upper Jockey Wheel - black

The GC 49 cassette extender cog allow you to modify your Shimano 11 speed cassette to create an ultra-wide range 11T-49T cassette. This includes 18T cassette cog for optimal gearing in the smaller cogs and a special, medium length (GS type) rear derailleur inner cage plate called Wolfcage.

You might ask why 49t rather than 50t, and the answer is simple:
It allows to nearly double the number of shift gates from 4 on a 50t to 7 on a 49t ... so you get much faster shifting. With cogs this big this is critical as you can be waiting nearly a half revolution of the crankset before you will see a shift with only 4 shift gates. Shimano 11 speed rear derailleurs can only handle 49t as a max cog size. The 49t is only 2% different than a 50t, which is so small it won't be noticed.

Wolf Tooth 49T GC Cog Compatibility:

Compatible only with Shimano 11 speed cassettes 11-42 & 11-46 range, cassettes. NOT compatible with any SRAM cassettes using the XD driver (10 tooth small cog).
Compatible with all 11 speed chains. Note that you likely need a longer chain than you currently have your bike. Chain length is critical with the 49T and must be set according to the instructions on the GC tech page. Chain wear should be less than .5 when installing a new GC or chainring.
Compatible with Shimano 11-speed rear derailleurs only. Also Compatible with Shimano 11 speed mountain derailleurs when using the Wolf Cage modification.
Caution: always check full suspension travel with the chain on the GC 49. Bleed air from rear shock and fully compress the rear suspension to check. Derailleur cage must not bottom out in forward rotation.
