Bevel Gears Faster Than Direct Drive?

Are bevel gears faster than direct drive? I’ve always wonder that and never really tried it out and now that we are in a quarantined state, I can’t try it out. Does anyone have an idea?

No, they aren’t. The ratio is 1:1, so the output will be the same as the input.

On a sidenote, VEX spur gears are more efficient than bevel gears.

Here is a link about gear efficiency:
