It does look like it has a little more of a shark tooth profile to it, as if it was more worn. With a worn chain running primarily on that one sprocket, I could see that happening. In addition to the chain checking device that someone mentioned above, Park Tool also makes a cassette checker, that can identify worn sprockets. You have to play around with it a bit on a new vs. a very worn cassette to get a feel for how it works, but it is pretty decent in my experience at identifying if your wear is beyond the point of no return.
Try riding this chain a couple more rides. If no improvment, try a different chain. If still no improvement, now it's the cassette for sure.
Delorre wrote:Short update : I continued to use the new chain with that cassette. Chain has 900km now, and the last 600km or so were almost trouble free. I still get some very occasional skip on the 15T from a standing start with lots of torque, or on all-out efforts combined with bad roads, but it's OK for me. We will see how it goes on when the cassette wears down... I'm still very dispointed in the durability of the Edco, and will continue using a Record cassette on my summer bike, for sure!!
Hi Delorre, any update? I had the Edco cassette considered based on some more positive comments from other friends.

That was a real bummer at the time, because the team could have used the money from Wipperman's sponsorship!
If you have a different chain, maybe try that. The team's SRAM chains were fine. I bet Shimano would have been too.
Or, as your experience suggests, your Wipperman could wear in as you ride more.

I've used the cassette during the summer and fall on the disc bike for something like 2000km's without much issues and skipp. But shifting quality is poorer than campy or shimano.
