thoughts? Sounds like a good price/weight to me.

I love the rainbow finish but simple facts are they are light due to less material/less dense alloy so they will ware faster.

I think at 250$ it makes quite a nice racing cassette option. More durable then recon cassette, ligther then sram XX or XTR cassette. Sub 150g is pretty wicked light.

Why 11-32 though? Most everyone is going with 10 speed now, and even 11 speed. Why not an 11-36 to compete directly with the SRAM XX? Maybe because there would be no weight savings?

Nevermind. I counted. There are 10 cogs on that 11/32. But still. Could they not at least do an 11-36?

I am thinking that they will lack durability and shifting precision- I am a fan of cassettes native to the group.
XTR or XX1.

No aluminum cassette will last, especially not in MTB.

I bought the Recon MTB 10 speed cassette a year ago, they shifted alright when installed, but my second ride was in hideous mud and I blew a couple of teeth without really cranking on them. They are very light and probably good for dry conditions, but I doubt they will last regardless.

Would not trust this cassette. AFAIK there have been no magical changes to aluminum and the recon one blew for mtb racing.

This, there is a reason cassettes are made of steel.
