Strengths:    Light weight

Weaknesses:    I bought the Sram Red OG-1090 after I was told it is compatable with the Shimano ultegra Di2. However, I tried to adjust the derailer and had no luck getting it to drop into 11 teeth. I took it to my bike shop and they were able to get it to go into 11, but noise shifting was too much to handle. Went back to Shimano dura-ace.

Bottom Line:   
Would have loved to keep the Sram Red, but not today.

Strengths:    Crisp shifting. One Piece, except for the two lower rings. Clean looking. Oh, have you weighed it?

Weaknesses:    none so far.

Bottom Line:   
After reading the reviews, i was skeptical on getting the cassette to match my drivetrain. I was using an Ultegra 12-27 until recently. I worried that the inner sleeve would cause echo and the design would act as a megaphone. This cassette rocks!! Shifting is fast and crisp. For those that say it is noisy, your system is out of adjustment. Stop using the LBS and grab the Big Blue Book of Bicycle repair from Park Tools. No one will ever get your system as smooth as YOU can. Bike shops have to get bikes serviced and turn over fast to amke money. Do the maintenance yourself and take your time. Once the system is properly set-up, no noise and a pleasure to ride.

Strengths:    Good looking

Weaknesses:    Very noisy, wears out quickly, shifting is not as crisp as Dura-Ace.

Bottom Line:   
After 1300 miles on a brand new SRAM Red group I start having problems with chain slip and it turned out to be the cassette which was worn out on the most used cogs. This is very disappointing because wear should not occur at such low millage. Will swap it out for a DA7900.

Strengths:    Lighter and less costly than DuraAce. Supposed to last longer than other makes, but this one will last forever in the back of the cabinet.

Weaknesses:    Poorest shifting cassette I've ever experienced.

Bottom Line:   
Bought a Sram Red 11-28 cassette for a mountainous ride that I do each year. It was installed 3 weeks before the ride. Shifting was noisy and poor from the start. Noise decreased somewhat, but still much louder than Shimano. Shifting never improved even after multiple attempts by the LBS. New Shimano 7800 chain, then new 7900 chain, lots of shifting tweaks. No help. This was with a DuraAce 7800 rear derailleur. Overall very slow shifting, especially to a lower gear, worse under load. It never felt like it made a crisp, positive shift. Shifting bad even in smaller cogs. Definitely not compatible with Shimano.
