I have one Shimano 8-speed 12-25 cassette, that came free with a nice older wheelset (Mavic rims, Ultegra hubs) that I bought used a few weeks ago. I worried that my 64 year old legs would prefer something like a 28T big cog, but on my lighter carbon fiber bike it turns out I can handle most of our short, steep hillettes with the 39T small chainring and 21 or 25 cog. But I couldn't find a model number on that cassette. It's currently paired with older Ultegra 8-speed RD and MicroShift brifters.

Only thing I can find is HG Hyperglide
