I have this on my light climbing bike with one by eleven shifting. This cassette was replacing what I had before. I thought long and hard about spending this much put it was worth it. It's light and shifts great. You need all the help you can get being a super senior.
Expensive but worth every penny. This cassette is so smooth and quiet. Shifting is incredible and accurate. Was having some challenges with my Ultegra cassette and indexing (maybe a cog was bad?) - gone once I installed this and the Red 22 chain. Got it tensioned right and lubed and now works fantastically. I hesitated because of the price, but the one piece construction of the vast majority of the cassette just makes a massive improvement in ergonomics and quietness. I have this paired with Cannondale OPI Spidering and Ultegra derailleurs - runs perfectly.
I have a few of the previous XG-1190s in various sizes and weigh them all. I was rather disappointed when the 11-28 cassette came in at 168g which is 10 more then my other two 11-28s. The new version is Identical to the old with the exception the back no longer has a 22 and the words Sram and Red switched places. Don't get me wrong it's still a great cassette as the original XG-1190, but I was under the impression there was something new and I was gonna shave a couple grams on my new build.
This is a nice piece of gear. Very lightweight, impressive to hold in your hand as you appreciate its machining. My 11-32 version shifts nicely with etap wifli. It's hard to call it a good value at its price but for weight-weenie builds it's the way to go.
Great deal from Bike Tires Direct. This cassette is very light and looks great! I recommend this cassette for climbers and for cyclist looking to shed some weight.
a great cassette from a GREAT vendor - Bike Tires Direct is my go to for ALL of my biking needs. great customer service, fast delivery, the best prices an awesome company
This is the lightest and quietest Freewheel cassette I have used. I own two of these. The first one has 14,000 miles on it and looks and performs like a new cassette, I bought a second one to go on a new set of wheels. It was significantly cheaper than the first one was. A much easier purchase. I use it with eTap, but I am told that it works quite well with Dura Ace or Ultegra.
