I have a vuelta xrp lightweight cassette and a "matching" xrp 10 sp hollowpin chain- both brand new- I'm just waiting to slap em on my bike- the cassette is shimano 10- 11-27 and weighs only 115g w/ the lockring.

Has anyone used one of these before? How long did it last? How well did it function? I'm using a shimano d/a 12/27 now and that thing weighs over 200g, so the weight savings will be pretty significant.

any info is appreciated!

thanks

Where did you buy the cassette and how much did it cost? I am looking for a lighter alternative to my DA 12-27 cassette. Do they make a 9spd versoins? Thanks.

I got it on ebay, but I think vuelta stopped making that one so it was a closeout. There are others who still make 9speed versions, although not as light as that one. kcnc, token, irc, extralite, possibly tune.

just check the longevity each manufacturer posts- also keep an eye out on ebay.
