HOLLOWcage® for Shimano Dura ace 9200 12spd. Our revolutionary mono-plate OSPW design is the quietest and best shifting, oversized derailleur cage for Shimano 12spd created to date. HOLLOWcage ® OSPW has a carbon-polymer mono-plate construction with bespoke, oversized, full ceramic bearings and the most advanced silencing pulleys ever made.

Does it bother you when you ride in a really quiet scenery but you can still hear your bike’s chain engaging the pulleys? This familiar clunking noise has been accompanying us on every ride for decades. It’s time for a change.
Common polymer pulleys are fairly loud, this has always been a norm. Aluminium pulleys are even worse as the material radiates the sound more than any polymer, making them louder. We are introducing a completely new generation of pulleys, which are able to reduce the sound level by 5-7dB when compared to stock Dura Ace pulleys. This corresponds to roughly 40% of the noise reduction. Practically speaking, the cage becomes very silent.We use a patent pending solution, our special xring rubber suspended bands, that dampen the chain impact on the guide pulley teeth, therefore eliminating the engagement noise, which is the single biggest contributor to overall drivetrain noise. From now on, your ride is going to be more silent than it used to be and you will hear sounds that you haven’t noticed before. It's the new era of derailleur cages


  • It is super silent (over 5dB noise reduction vs stock).
  • The shifting is as good as with the original Dura Ace cage.
  • One of the lightest oversized cages on the market.

Please refer to the video instruction below. You should mount the cage with the lowest spring tension setting (First hole from left). If you use 11-32T cassette in combination with 52/36T chainrings or bigger you may need to set the cage with higher spring tension setting (the original tension hole) to account for the chain growth, but only if first position produces loose chain in small - small gear.
