Strengths:    Shifts OK ,except for the middle cog.Not heavy,not super light either.Easy to remove and throw away.Works fine in biggest 4 cogs...BUT>>>>

Weaknesses:    This review is for the cogset with the "missing tooth cogs"....a bad idea that SRAM has since abandoned..This design was flawed from new,but I thought it was the pawls in my rear hub...Under load,you hear a loud snap from your drive train,and you can feel it through the pedals.It doesn't really skip,but it is very annoying,and with a carbon bike/carbon wheels,it even freaks out other racers...Hey man,what's wrong with your bike?.....I finally figured out it only does this in the cogs that have the missing tooth...but I spent hours checking everyhting else first...I finally put on a cassette with regular teeth and guess what...??Yeah no more jolts under load,no more BANG noises,no big crack!snap! through your feet(carbon soled shoes)..I wasted whole season trying to figure this out,mostly because Reynold's freehubs are also know for skip/cracking noises/lurches..Bike shops told me it was the hub,or my chain,or a bottom bracket deal,or a crank spider ,or a quick release,or a cracked alloy axle ....and it turned out to be this #%@$!! useless cassette....did it from day one...SRAM should warranty all these,as they are just defective by design....

Bottom Line:   
This cassette is defective by design...the skip tooth cogs do just that...they jerk under is a terrible mistake to buy one of these,and SRAM should atleast supply new cogs

Strengths:    Smooth shifting

Weaknesses:    Clicking/Skipping sound comming from cassette or chain when riding in middle cog!

Bottom Line:   
Got this cassette(Sram OG-1070 10 speed 11-28t) on my new 2008 Specialized Tarmac SL2 double. Noticed clicking/skipping sound comming from cassette when chain(Shimano Dura Ace 7801) is in the middle(5th.)cog. It gets much better once I shift to 6th. or 4th. cog and no clicking/skipping in any others Cogs. THIS DRIVES ME CRAZY.I SEE MANY OTHER RIDERS FACING SIMILAR PROBLEM.My $800 bike is smooth and quiet and $4000 Tarmac first gave me cranset cracks now this stupid cassette and chain noise!

Strengths:    Light, inexpensive, quick shifts, hidden cable routing, carbon levers

Weaknesses:    That damn skipping!

Bottom Line:   
Rival group is great, except I have the skipping problem in the middle cogs. It skips much less when the chain is sparkling clean, but after a week the skipping returns. Any one have a fix for this? I have had 3 shops look at it and all have scratched their heads. Please help!

Strengths:    Long-lasting
shifts great

Weaknesses:    chain skipping over the cogs

Bottom Line:   
Product worked amazingly at first, but every once in awhile, the chain skips forward if I try and get out of the saddle and sprint. My chain has not even worn out yet, and don't know why this problem persists. I spoke with another rider, and he had the same problem.

Strengths:    cheap, well built, fairly light,

Weaknesses:    not a single piece cassette therefore less stiff

Bottom Line:   
This is for the 11-26 Cassette, , i also have the 1090 11-26 Red Cassette to compare with and run the 1090R chain, the 1070 is tad louder and sifting is not as crisp especially on the larger cogs, but it is a great work horse and comes at a fraction of the price and is still lighter than ultegra in the same class. I use it on my Mavic Cosmic Carbon were weight is less of an issue as you will not go for steep grades with deep dish rims.
