I've put about 7,000km on this so far on my cyclocross bike that I use for gravel, single track, bad weather days, and when I just feel like going for a ride vs. busting it on my road bike or hammering single track on the MTB. I'm fussy with my kit and take good care of it from a maintenance perspective but all I've done with this is degrease it once and a while and pick the grass, twigs, and other detritus out of it when necessary. Not showing much for signs of wear, shifts flawlessly, runs quiet. When it eventually wears out I'll buy another. Very nicely designed and built piece of kit.

I have no idea why Wiggle does not provide the below technical info on the product page, however, I heard from Wiggle after purchasing this product that it's only compatible with the SRAM Red group.
"Thank you for your email regarding order **********.
I have been in touch with our technical department and they have advise that as this cassette is from the top flight component (RED) should only be used within the same group, manufactures do advise that you should stay within the groupset which is in the bike at the time. If you decide to upgrade then you will need to upgrade the whole groupset."

Best bit of kit you can buy drivetrain wise!!
Amazing shifting under pressure

Bought this as it seemed to be the ultimate upgrade for my Sram equipped bike. Not disappointed. Lasting well and shifting smoothly. I bought it for it's very light weight but it seems to be standing up to use just as well as anything else i've used.

Excellent cassette but you do have to pay for the quality, not sure it is that much better than cassettes half the price

Does exactly as it states.
Has to be the quietest cassette I've ever used. Very smooth shifting between cogs both up and down, would also recommend using the Sram 1090R Chain, as these two items are designed to be used together.

Works perfectly with the rest of my SRAM-gear. Easy to assemble.

Lovely piece of engineering!...I almost wish I didn't know how good this was..that way I'd be happy to pay a lot less for Force etc..I suggest you start the justification process by saying I don't smoke..don't drink regularly..it's my hobby..life is short etc :-)
Currently running it with Rotor Q rings, Red Group set and 1090R chain.

I upgraded from the OG1090 Red cassette purely for the 11-28 as I needed a bigger ring at the back. After reading all the reviews and wanting to keep all my group set RED, I bought one. As always with Wiggle it was delivered straight away. My first ride out and what a difference, you definitely wont be disappointed with this cassette its so quiet in shifting up and down, that you have to keep looking down to make sure its moved, its so quick and responsive. I upgraded my chain at the same time to the Sram PC1091R as it recommends

Quick change and light in weight
This is well worth the money, I'm now very glad I purchased the SRAM Red cassette.

Well Engineered Product
Quality of design and engineering that has gone into this is amazing. Really light, smooth shifting, a lovely piece of kit.
Replaced my 25-11 with a 28-11 and it makes a big difference to the gearing for those steep hills. I was expecting to have problems with larger 'gaps' between the ratios, but after a couple of rides I don't even notice.
I wouldn't have paid the RRP for it as it is very expensive, but Wiggles 36% off makes it affordable.

This product is well made
I purchased the 11-26 cassette all I need to say is that although it is expensive in comparison to competitors you get what you pay for.
The cassette is well made, light weight, quiet and smooth.
Exactly what you want from such a cassette.
21 April 2014
Light quiet and super smooth. Its not cheap but I think its the best top end cassette on the market.
21 April 2014
Super easy to install, really quiet, superb complement to the Red group, although I daresay it would be pretty good with any ...
03 September 2013
Just feels faster than previous cassette and super quiet. Would recommend if looking to upgrade. Obviously expensive but you get what you pay for.
20 July 2013
Extremely light weight given its size & quality through & through.
So easy to install.

Valuable cassette for road bikes
Fast, reliable and finest cassette than previous red. A little bit noisy but long life guaranted.
12 June 2013
Buy. If you’re serious about your sport.
Running SRAM Red on an Cannondale Supersix Evo HiMod. Went for this cassette as an upgrade to the standard RED cassette (which was good).
Noted the drive train immediately quieter. Shift changes even slicker. On my first hard ride with this cassette I pulled twenty seconds on a local hill (1.6mile) climb PB , purely through slick gear changes and no loss off pull whilst ascending the gears as the hill steepened.
Quality feels great. You get what you pay for.
If you want those seconds. Buy the cassette. :)

Silence is Golden
Replaced the SRAM Red OG1090 cassette and coupled with a new KMC chain has silenced the drive chain, which includes S-works chain rings. Good shifting and low weight albeit expensive, although I did manage to pick it up for an ok price with the wiggle discount and a discount voucher, to soften the blow.

Work of art
My bike came with a SRAM Force cassette, so I upgraded when I could. Its the biggest jump in performance I've seen between any mid to top end gear, much more noticable Ryan going from Ultegra to DuraAce.
Very light and so at, works perfectly.

A classy upgrade but not a cheap one
I swapped a £75 PG1070 Sram cassette for this one and found it smoother and quieter. It's also lighter but not enough to be noticeable on the bike.
It's an awesome cassette for sure, but worthy of the price? That's a different matter!
19 February 2013
Very light for a 11-28; 9 steel cogs; only concern is how the alloy 28 cog will wear.
07 February 2013
I purchased 11-28T cassette, which weighs only 159g.
Please note that It does not fit to Easton's Shimano free hub but to SRAM free hub only.
24 May 2012
Its is mounted on a carrier the last 9 sprockets being only the first one separate. But when a cassette is chewing up a freehub usually indicates that the freehub is of a poor quality. I have two pairs of whellsets and using the same cassette i had a little bit of chewing up on one wheelset and none in the other that is of a really reliable company.
i have a full SRAM force groupset on my boardman slr9.2. If i replaced the current sram force pg1070 cassette without replacing any other parts (e.g. derailleurs) would there be any issues with or degradation of the cassette's performance?
The sram red groupset actually comes from sram force groupset using lighter materials but being and working exactly the same. If you put a sram red cassette you will have a more silent and lighter groupset and it will work perfectly and probably even faster than with the previous cassette.
