Strengths:    Great range

Weaknesses:    shifting perhaps not as crisp as a Campy

Bottom Line:   
I purchased 2 IRD 11-28 Campy cassettes, one for me, on for my partner, and both have worked fine. The shift is perhaps a tad slower than my Centaur cassette, but it's so minor that I can't even be sure it's real and not a product of my imagination. This is a great complement for a compact crank and have also installed them on customers bikes with no problems.

Strengths:    An 11 along with a 28 on the same cassette

Weaknesses:    For the price, I would expect a lighter weight unit.

Bottom Line:   
IRD has come up with a "niche" product that I feel would serve many recreational cyclists well. I put a compact crank on my bike as I mostly ride mountainous terrain. The 12-27 cassette was OK for the uphills but I would spin out the 50x12 top gear relatively quickly. The 11 is a noticeable difference and combined with the 50, is a larger gear than a 53x12 (122.7 vs 119.3 gear inches). With 10 gears on it, the gaps are minimal although if I rode flatter terrain I would switch to an 11-23. This cassette shifts great with the Shimano setup and works well with the short cage derailleur. It is heavier than the Dura Ace 12-27, but is worth it for me for the expanded range.

Strengths:    Non-standard gearing 28/25/23/21/19/17/15/14/13/12

Weaknesses:    See review

Bottom Line:   
Absolutely WORTHLESS! Less than worthless as they require extra duty while riding. It hasn’t shifted right from THE DAY I MOUNTED IT! It either double shifts or nothing at all, requiring 2 clicks to shift one gear. Racing with this thing would be laughable. In fact, the whole IRD “Elite” cassette would be laughable except for the $110 price tag.

Save your money and hypertension drugs, STAY AWAY FROM THIS CASSETTE!!!

No disc brakes in the top 10 Elite Men's racers at Worlds 2013

It is interesting that there were no disc brakes used on the bikes ridden by the top 10 Elite Men's racers at Worlds 2013 (that I could see). Do you think that it is because of weight; due to the disc pad problems seen in conditions at US Nationals this year; or just tradition: [url=http://velonew ... Read More »

Keep Shimano WS-10, upgrade to Kyrsium Elite, or build my own?

My 2011 Cannondale Synapse Carbon 5 came with Shimano RS-10 wheels. I put about 700 miles on them (I weight 215 lbs) last summer and they stayed true, etc. I'm toying with the idea of upgrading the wheelset. I plan on doing a 62-mile "horribly hilly" ride this summer (6000+ feet of climbing). ... Read More »
