SRAM PG-1170 Cassette $118.00
Force's cassette now goes to 11.
SRAM's new PG-1170 Cassette was built to give you smooth, quiet, and accurate shifting across all 11 of its cogs. The cassette was engineered to seamlessly pair with SRAM's new Force 22 group, and it includes the addition of a 16T cog neatly tucked into the cassette's profile. This 16T is now the linking cog that delivers better cadence control and smoother shifting as you hover within the middle block of the 11-speed cassette.
The PG-1170 Cassette was constructed using SRAM's semi-spidered design to provide you with a cassette that's both stiff and exceptionally lightweight. Each cog was made from heat-treated steel, which results in a durable cluster that runs near silent and maintains exceptional mud-clearing capabilities.
SRAM incorporated its X-Glide shifting technology, which shapes the teeth and cogs to provide the ultimate in quick, positive shifting. Compared to its Powerglide cassettes, this goes just a notch above. The difference is how quickly the teeth pick up the chain on the downshifts. All of the cogs, save for the largest alloy cog, are cut as short as possible to eliminate flex between the teeth and the point where they're riveted to their next largest neighbor.
SRAM improved exactly where it needed, and the new SRAM Force 22 PG-1170 Cassette is a true upgrade to its previous PG-1070 while still remaining faithful to the SRAM Force pedigree. For smooth and flawless shifting across SRAM's machined X-Glide cassette teeth, SRAM recommends using its PC-1170 Chain. The cassette also includes an anodized, laser-etched aluminum lockring. Please note that the PG-1170 Cassette will only fit 11-speed compatible hub/freehub bodies.
The 11/25 includes: 11,12,13,14,15,16,17,19,21,23,25 The 11/26 includes: 11,12,13,14,15,16,17,19,21,23,26 The 11/28 includes: 11,12,13,14,15,16,17,19,22,25,28

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I run this cassette on a cyclocross setup for long mixed surface rides with lots of climbing. The cassette gives me a wide range of gears to choose from and the 32 is a lifesaver on some of the bigger climbs here in the Wasatch. Shifting is smooth up and down and it runs quiet paired with a SRAM chain. The jump between 28 and 32 can take a little getting used to, but it is not a detractor at all and people riding other wide range cassettes or 1x drivetrains won't even notice.
