I bit the bullet and purchased the 10-36 as I have not been super impressed with E13's XCX 9-34. Will report back.

It took 13 weeks to arrive. Maybe due to corona? That being said, I'm moving in two weeks so it went straight into a box for the time being.

I bought one too. It took approximately 2 weeks from ordering it to it arriving.

Upon receipt I found it wasn’t quite as well made as I had hoped. The innermost diameter of the lockring was slightly too small making it impossible to insert the tool. I contacted the seller but heard nothing, so reasoned I was on my own. But, after measuring the outer diameter of the tool and the lockring I realised that I just needed to file it to allow the tool to fit.

Weight was a smidge higher than the advertised 261g at 283g but at ⅓ the price of the Sram cassette I’ll life with it.

I’ve put a few miles on it now and can confirm that it is as good as the XG1199 it replaced. Shifting is clean and quick. Occasionally it hesitates on one shift to a larger sprocket but this is so rare it’s a nonissue. Chain noise is no different to the Sram one piece cassettes I’ve been using on my road bike and gravel bike.

The big difference is the progression in gears. Before the 10/12/14 drove me up the wall on road. Now I have 10/11/12 which is far more useable.

Also got one of these. Bought it from Dudemanppl (rip) so I dunno about shipping time. Mine came in a whopping 2g lighter than ultimobici's at 281g. :unbelievable: :unbelievable:

Nice! Did you order from Aliexpress? I would like to avoid that if possible...

I'm getting a XDR hub for my next wheels and plan on running this with a spacer for gravel (GRX 11s).

Received my SRoad 10-36 (ordered July 6, received August 11). 281.9g. FWIW if you don't know, the XD interface includes the lockring mechanism, so Shimano style cassettes should have that +5g lockring added for comparison. (I did not weigh the DTSwiss XD driver vs Shimano driver.) $122 on aliexpress, ~$80 for OEM DTSwiss XD driver and endcap. Definitely lighter than the 360g 11-36 Sunrace I use on my gravel wheelset, hell it's lighter than the 11-32 Ultegra (286g) that was on this road wheelset.

This is a really nicely constructed cassette - all cogs are one single piece of steel, totally one piece construction where it contacts the chain, aluminum inner spider. Came in a nice presentation box. Clearly trying to compete with $300+ RED casettes, not $40 Sunrace. I had similar difficulty with the driver tool - one of mine didn't fit no matter what. Another one (older Park with no 3/8" drive for torque wrench, just wrench flats) fit just fine.

Shifts just fine on the stand and on a round the block ride. Will have to report back on performance over time.

Just a reference point for freehubs and how they compare, the following are the weights for my ENVE freehub bodies (essentially Mavic id360 freehubs with upgraded NTN bearings):
Shimano setup: 73g freehub + 189g SRAM red 1190 11-32 tuned cassette
XD setup: 56g freehub + 281g SROAD 10-36 cassette

Switching to an XD makes the difference between the two bearable :)

Fascinating, I didn't know the XD system was so much lighter. Seems to be common knowledge in MTB circles where this system has more penetration.

On my scale:
Sunrace 11-36 bare 354.7g. Lockring 5.1g. DT Swiss HG driver and endcap 65g. Assembly 424.8g
Shimano Ultegra 11-32 bare 281g. Lockring 5.1g. DT Swiss HG driver and endcap 65g. Assembly 351.3g
Sroad 10-36 bare 281.9g. DT Swiss XD driver and endcap 46.7g. Assembly 328.6g
