Seems like a good deal for Titanium cassette. 112 grams for the 11-28.
I am wondering if it is just a race day only cassette or if it can be used daily? There doesn't seem to be any reviews.

Also depends on your power. Maybe a weaker rider can use it for a while comparable to a strong rider on a steel cassette, but if the small rider were on a steel casette it would last much longer than the strong riders.
If you got the money, try it. Campy cassettes have some titanium cogs. Alloy cassettes are crazy to use though unless it's the largest 1-2 cogs.
I'm a small rider with a small ftp. I'm enjoying the weight and longevity of sram red cassettes. I think some larger riders wouldn't but them because it's simply too easy to wear them out for them.
There's nothing wrong with them, and they will last long enough, unless you demand years of service out of them.
I rode them year round, and they don't wear out after a season. Your chain is more likely to wear in bad weather.
I also like them for the wide splines, they won't dig into your freehub, even if made of aluminum.
But here's the real decision: one Omni @ $300., or two Recon/BDop alloy cassettes for same price (half the cost per)?
Why do SRAM red cassettes wear out quickly? They're steel after all.
I use sram red cassettes and I'm very happy. I get them in good shape second hand 10 speed. They last several years for me. In fact I havent worn one out yet but I've only ridden two seasons around 20k.
SRAM Red cassettes don't have longevity issues unless you spend an inordinate amount of time in the biggest cog, which is aluminum. Durability should honestly be superior to a Dura-Ace cassette where the 1-5 cogs are titanium. My 4-5-6 cogs see a lot of shifts because that's where it makes the most sense to shift up front and "synco-shift" in back for my set-up.
Makes sense. My 'hilly trip' cassette is the Red 11s 11-30 and I don't notice any particular wear. I use the 30t but it's mostly there as a bail-out. I like the cassette a lot - especially how easy it is to put on and take off with the one-piece design.TobinHatesYou wrote: ↑Fri Feb 23, 2018 7:33 amSRAM Red cassettes don't have longevity issues unless you spend an inordinate amount of time in the biggest cog, which is aluminum.
