I am getting a new carbon disc wheel for my 2013 Blue time trial bike that is equipped with Sram red 10 speed and it has Return to center shifters.

I want to get a second cassette with the new wheel so I can use both wheels.

I presently have 11-25 and this works fine and I would like to get the same range.

I think I can use either sram or shimano.

If I get sram what model number cassette. They seem to have a million different numbers Pg or CG or ? I dont want to spend a lot so I was thinking about going down to Force to keep the cost down, just a few grams more weight right?

If I go with shimano they seem to be more straight forward just get Ultegra, dura ace or 105 as long as its ten speed, should be good, right?

Just looking for a little help from those of you that know the cassette designations better than me.

Right, iIt's the same with Sram though. 10 speed is 10 speed. I agree the level is more confusing with SRAM but there are not different 10 speed systems like it sounds like you think.

Yup. They both work fine on Red.

Not a million different numbers. Just go to the SRAM web site. They're listed & numbered highest to lowest. Pick the one that suits your price range.
