What is a HyperGlide cassette?
Hyperglide is the name given by cycling component manufacturer Shimano to a sprocket design in their bicycle derailleur tooth cassette systems. It varies gear tooth profiles, and/or pins along the faces of freewheel or cassette sprockets, or between the chainrings in a crankset, to ease shifting between them.

What gear should my bike be in when going uphill?
Low Gear = Easy = Good for Climbing: The “low” gear on your bike is the smallest chain ring in the front and the largest cog on your cassette (rear gears). In this position, the pedaling will be the easiest and you’ll be able to pedal uphill with the smallest amount of resistance.
Can you put XD driver on Shimano hub?
Currently Shimano is just about the only hub and wheel manufacturer not offering an XD-driver option. Likewise, Shimano’s new 11-speed XTR and XT drivetrains do not use an XD-compatible cassette, and so are limited to an 11T smallest cog.
