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
***Crankset compatibility: triple chainring, use a long cage 10 speed MTB derailleur, double chainring will work with medium cage 10 speed MTB derailleurs
The PG-1050 cassette is compatible with Shimano or Sram 10 speed rear derailleurs. To see a comprehensive list of our 10 speed rear derailleurs look here.
I just replaced my old cassette with this one so I could have 10 flawless gears for learning to ride on only the large chain ring. This cassette has help up beautifully. Since each cog and spacer can be separated, it can be a bit fiddly to install, but ultimately all fit together like puzzle pieces to make a good lock down.
I am using this on a 1x10 drive and the ratios are great. So far the sprockets are wearing great.
