Helps save the legs

Big fan of this gearing changing from a 10-33. I�m 100kg+ living in a flat area and the smaller jump in gearing with the 16 tooth cog has helped limit the spikes in power, smoothing out my group rides and helping me conserve energy for when I want to put it down.

Quiet, light and smooth

I have a red 11 speed cassette on another bike with 1st gen eTap, so I had some idea of what to expect. First, the cassette is an engineering marvel, given that most of the cassette is machined as a single piece of steel. It�s incredibly light. Finally the rubber elastomeric bands between the cogs do an amazing job of quieting the drivetrain. I have a force axs cassette on my gravel bike. I can�t discern any difference in shift quality, which is excellent for both; however the red cassette is noticeably quieter (and lighter), making the whole drivetrain silky smooth.

Keeps my Aethos running like butter!

Living in Tucson allows year round riding and weekly rides to Mount Lemmon..

These roads and other Southwest routes have been the proving ground for these parts.

While I like performance of Red, its durability is suspect particularly if you like to put the power to the pedals. Riding high end stuff isn't cheap, so if this is a consideration, a Force cassette (XG-1270) would work equally well with a much better price point.

SRAM Red XG-1290 D1 12-Speed Cassette

I have been using the forest drivetrain for a little over 10,000 miles. The original Force chain was down to about 2% of life left. I was starting to notice a latency on the always crisp shifting. So I began to look at new chains, a few of my fellow cyclist friends and why don't you go with a Red chain. So the long story short is Bike Tires Direct had a sale on the red chain and also cassette. The combination of a new chain and a new cassette shifts and drives like a new bike. I have about 700 Mi on the new cassette and chain and do not have any shifting issues at all. Time will tell on the durability but I suspect the cassette will not have any issues with premature wear. Chains always wear out and that definitely affects your shifting functionality. I bought the park chain testing tool many years ago and it has proved to be a confirmation of what I suspect during shifting. So a recap if you have the force etab system and you want to upgrade to a lighter cassette and a lighter chain the red is surely the way to go. Hope this helps.

RED XG-1290 D1 12 Speed Cassette

Just received this new cassette. Installation was a breeze. It's very light and shifts very smooth. Much better than the Force cassette that came with my Trek Emonda. The factory Force cassette was still shifting well with over 9,000 miles on it, and likely a lot of life left. I will keep it as a backup. I did not opt for the fancy multicolored cassette as I personally like the silver titanium sort of look. I'm sure this cassette will be as good as the factory cassette. I expect to get many many miles from it. Hope this helps

Good Looking and Crisp Shifting!

I purchased the new rainbow colored option to replace my XG-1290 silver one that was at the end of it's life. The rainbow and black looks great with my matte black bike frame and of course the shifting is excellent. As a side note I also love the very low weight, build quality and easy install. Of course all this comes at a cost to the pocket book but if properly cared for these cassettes last a really long time and are a good value overall IMO. I would highly recommend purchasing one if you are a total bike nerd like me and love running the best!

Blingy, light, and great delivery by BTD

If you are looking to shed weight and want to add some color to your road bike, this SRAM Red cassette is boss. Quiet crisp shifts and the 10-33 gives you a ton of range and speed even with a compact 48/35T crankset. This is the lightest of all the SRAM XG cassettes and is about 71g lighter than Rival or 55g lighter than it's Force counterpart. The only con I have for the cassette is it's price, other wise BTD shipped safely and quickly and will remain my go to bike store

Best made cassettes ever

Super strong and creak free. After running Dura ace 12 speed cassettes for awhike, they were frequently making creak nooses. The Sram Red cassette is better made and quiet, efficient , and lightweight.

best Cassette range ever

The price is high, but the quality is worth it, super solid and light cassette and the gear ranges are perfect. I run the 11-26 for fast flat lands and the 11-33 for hilly areas. The 10 tooth cog is worthless until screaming down the backside of a mountain at full speed, then you learn to appreciate the 10 tooth cog. Its creak free unlike some of the dura-ace cassettes I have used in the past, Sram has nailed their cassette design!

Expensive , wears out quicker than most.

It's a nice unit, but has never lasted as long as my Ultegra cassettes. I would STAY AWAY, if you can
