Our Box Three tier delivers many of the same capabilities of its more famous siblings yet it's built upon a simpler platform. Cassettes are accessible at 11-46T or 11-50T and fashioned with steel spiders. The derailleur exploits our Limited Slip clutch technology without the Tri-pack features. Shift easily with a comparable mechanism, although you'll forgo the hinged clamp and die-cast structure. And lastly, string it all together with a Prime 9 chain but without extravagant coatings. If you're looking to bring your 2/3 by bike into the 21st century, then level up with this group!

i ordered this for my mountain bike hybrid. i just ride streets now. i will have to say this set shifts very smooth,looks and feels bombproof made me forget all about the shimano i had on there. shopping experience and shipping was great. will buy more products and will recommend. Doug
Amazed to find order and receive this box3 prime group set in such a short time. CS got back to me in a timely manner regarding a fit question and I was off to the races. Used this on a kids 24” Transition ripcord for my oldest son. It was running a older narrow range 9 speed. Set up was easy overall. On his first day out with it he biked an extra hour and over 4 more miles than normal on more technical terrain than he had ever done. The shifting seems flawless. The levers are a bit stiffer than the original sram but it did not seem to slow him down or frustrate him at all. Super excited to see if the durability promise holds true as I have another little ripper behind him to have this Last through if possible. At this point full 5 stars on everything! If they were in stock I’d consider a box 1 for my own hard tail for sure. Don’t be scared it’s not an S brand. This seems fully legit .
From start to finish you will not have a better shopping experience. Amazing communication from the team at Box. Extremely fast service. This just adds to the superior product. Easy to install and set up and it works amazing. Very very happy with my purchase!
