Single or Double?

Each drivetrain has its pros and cons.

Shimano's 1x11 drivetrain offers DYNAMIC CHAIN ENGAGEMENT+ for efficient chain management. It provides superior chain retention, lower noise and increased durability. While the 2x11 systems include DYNA-SYS11, which improves drivetrain efficiency by creating a more closely spaced front gearing range paired to a 11-speed cassette.
