Upgrade your aging version 1 MirageDrive to the newer Glide Tech components. Glide Tech components feature roller bearings, which reduce friction on the sprocket, drum and idler shafts, are more efficient to pedal and perform optimally for longer. Version 1 MirageDrive chains are no longer available, so anyone that needs to replace chains on an old V1 drive is advised to upgrade their unit to Glide Tech using this kit, as it comes with everything required to turn a V1 drive to GT.

Note, this kit does not come with GT sprockets. You can reuse V1 and V2 sprockets with this kit if they are still in reasonable condition. If in doubt, buy the sprockets as well


Watch this service guide which will help explain the process of replacing chains and drums
