VEXpro gears pocketed for extreme weight savings, on average 50% per gear! Pocketed gears have been tested for strength and durability for years on teams such as 254, 973, 1323, and 971. Fun fact, Team 971’s 2016 robot saved about 2 lbs of weight just by lightening their gears! This was enough for them to add their hanging claw at the Championships!
