With the introduction of the Force and Rival road groups, SRAM brings some long-overdue fresh thinking to component design. Their creativity and innovation doesn't stop at components with inherent sex appeal like shift levers and cranksets. It extends even to traditionally mundane parts like the cassette. Unlike Campagnolo and Shimano who insist on maintaining multiple models of cassettes despite the minimal differences between them (we challenge you to distinguish between an unmarked Chorus and Centaur cassette; ditto for Ultegra and 105), SRAM did the sensible thing: They offer a highly scaled back range of cassettes. The standard model is known as the PG-1070, while the deluxe model is known as the OG-1090.
Whether you're riding a Red, Force, or Rival-equipped bike, the "PowerGlide" shifting of PG-1070 will provide crisp, positive shifting under any circumstance -- a mellow spin, or at max power on a steep climb. Unlike Dura-Ace and Record, the PG-1070 weighs in at a scant 220g without having to resort to easily-worn titanium cogs. Rather, the PG-1070 is made from durable heat-treated steel, giving you tons of mileage before you'll need to replace it.
The PG-1070 is available in several ratios. Its spline configuration allows it to fit on any Shimano 9/10-speed freehub, and it's compatible with any 10-speed chain: SRAM, Shimano, or Wippermann's S-series chains. What SRAM suggests, of course, is that you use one of their 10-speed PC-1000 series chains for optimal shifting. Includes a forged, anodized, and laser-etched lockring.
The actual weight of the SRAM PG-1070 Cassette varies with tooth count. For reference, the 11-25 is 224g.
