SRAM's new cassette has the stealth rings. With the 11-23 allegedly weighing 153g, has anyone tried to remove the elastomers to see how much they contribute to the weight?

Also, SRAM said they were replaceable, has anyone seen the stealth rings for sale as an aftermarket part?

Did you mean 135g for the 11-23? I just got an 11-25 and it is 142g with the lockring. My bigger concern with the elastomer bands is damaging them with cleaning solutions. Definitely won't be using spray on auto brake cleaner like I did with the OG-1090's.

I was only able to find one "official" weight for the cassette, so I automatically assumed it was for the smallest. Mea Culpa.
