Product Description

Many single speed cogs will take a toll on freehub bodies over time. Their narrow nature paired with a whole lotta torque makes for trouble. Our friends in North Carolina developed a brilliant solution -- the Endless Bike Kick-Ass Cog. A full quarter inch wide (6.35mm) at the splines, the Kick-Ass Cog simply will not damage your free hub body the way a narrower cog can. It's crafted from high strength 7075-T6 alloy (Stronger and harder than most common steels), right here in the U-S-of-A.Endless Bike Kick-Ass Cogs are precision machined insuring perfect axial and radial alignment that compliments the superior chain lines that cassette style hubs allow. The specially engineered tooth profile on Kick-Ass Cogs improves both cog and chain life while minimizing drive train friction. Because of this, you can expect a smooth, quiet drivetrain -- no more grittiness.

Strengths:    Light and quiet. Only 19 grams for the 16 tooth cog. Reversible-you can flip it around when it starts to wear. It's WIDE! 1/4" wide to be exact. This is nice because it doesn't dig into the alloy free hub body like a skinny steel one does. It's made out of 7075 T-6 aluminum. Great strength to weight ratio and supposed to be stronger than steel. It's pretty awesome to look at too (What CNC'd piece of metal isn't?!?)

Weaknesses:    A bit expensive ($40 from Endless Bikes), but since it's reversible it's like buying two for the price of one, right?

Bottom Line:   
I will buy another one when this one becomes unusable. I'm considering buying a 17 and 18 tooth as well just to have in my arsenal. Adjust your chain line and this thing just hums merrily along!

Bottom Line:   
I ripped two or three teeth off of a 19t cog. In fairness it was a pretty well worn cog and I do believe I had a stick get caught between the chain and cog.

None the less I have never had another cog do anything like this.

It may have more to-do with the material than the manufacturing process.

The real question is, would I buy this again?

For 30.00 - maybe.
For 40.00 Retail - HELL NO.

3 Chili's because it lasted a while before failing and it may have been user error. Although I seriously doubt any steel cog would loose teeth like it did.
