Kogel’s found new treasure with limited edition gold anodized parts, the latest of which are these oversized pulley wheels for SRAM Eagle 12-speed X-Horizon rear derailleurs. Originally only available in black, these pulleys share the same 12-tooth upper and 14-tooth lower design and get their ceramic bearings that just keep spinning. Retail is $149.99, a $20 premium for the gold finish, and they’re available now in limited quantities.
They use a narrow-wide design on both wheels for better chain management. The wheels are machined from aluminum. They use Kogel’s cyclocross/MTB seals to stay cleaner, but are also serviceable to keep them running smooth. Only 30 sets are available from this first run.
Prior to this limited edition launch, they introduced small batches of gold anodized bottom brackets for most modern standards. Some versions still have a few in stock, others might be up for pre-order. Shown above is their PFBB30 solution for 24mm Shimano spindles that requires no adapters, with a standard threaded BSA model below it.
