When these are on closeout I try to get one. Incredible value when they are ~40% off. First off, that red spider and lock ring look sweet, they are really light, shifting is PERFECT. The only downside is the durability, I have bent the larger cogs on at least of these cassettes. I would still continue to purchase them.
I have one of these on my DH bike that came with it and I have to say, when I have to go replace it, compared to cheaper Sram cassettes, the price is going to kill me! BUT, I have to say this, I bought my bike back in 2008 and after 5 years riding on it, it don't seem to want to wear! So for the money, that's about $22/year which in my opinion, makes it worth it! BIG TIME! Because I'm cheap and that's why I buy from Pricepoint! The lighter cage I am not concerned with because I have a DH bike but whatever the cogs are made up of, they're freakin indestructible man! They just don't seem to wear. No shark finning yet! Can't believe the thing is still on my bike and still is shifting fine! Un freakin believable! Aweseome cassette! You can't go wrong with Sram's stuff.
