The all-new PG 1050 cassette is spans a pretty big range and we're not just talking about the game changing 11-32 road cassette.
While the big 'uns are designed to work with their new Apex road component group and 10 speed MTB's, SRAM wisely choose to make the PG-1050 in enough sizes to cover the entire spectrum which will no doubt make this cassette a hit with budget minded racers and enthusiasts both on and off road.
The steel cogs are aggressively machined to keep weight to a minimum and are heat treated to increase durability. The three largest cogs ride on an aluminum spider to further reduce weight.
*Max size for SRAM short cage road derailleurs (Red, Force, Rival)
**Fits SRAM Apex or 10 speed MTB derailleurs
***Fits long cage 10 speed MTB derailleurs ONLY.
Bike came with 11-36 and I replaced it after a year with the same model. I trained and raced all year long. I live around some great trails and I abused the heck out this thing. Price is good and it never let me down. Looking forward to another solid year on a great drivetrain.
I purchased an 11-32 to go with my new Easton EA90 race wheels. I have been running an 11-28 and wanted to go with the 32 to help flatten out the hills a bit. So far I am extremely pleased with this cassette. I ultimately purchased this to see how it performs in Ironman Lake Placid this July...time will tell.
