SRAM has redesigned its innovative Powerdome X road cassette specifically for ‘cross. The new X-Glide (XG) 1090 Cyclocross Cassette features an innovative design with hundreds of open ports for improved mud clearing capabilities. Along with the most requested gearing of 12-27, ‘cross riders now have a single perfect cassette choice.
The cassette is one of the most advanced cassettes ever made. It‘s super light, deadly silent, and delivers an undeniable performance advantage. The eight cogs in the middle are machined from a single block of high grade tool steel, increasing stiffness while weighing even less than a titanium cassette. Between each cog in the block is a StealthRing elastomer
to reduce vibration and noise. Cutouts on the rear cog further reduce weight and add stiffness. It‘s the final piece in the drivetrain puzzle, paired with the SRAM RED Rear Derailleur, delivers ultra-fast, ultra-quiet shifts that will always put you in the right gear.
- Hollow steel dome makes for the stiffest gear cluster ever at the lightest weight
- Heat-treated, high-grade tool steel provide superlative durability and a beautiful finish
- StealthRing elastomers and advanced tooth profiles eliminate vibration and noise for a smooth, silent ride
- Aluminum cog: lighter, stiffer, stronger due to the choice of design, material and production process
: Shimano compatible cassette, requires Shimano 8/9/10s compatible rear hub. (Except Shimano 10s only free wheel system.)
Note: For reasons of packaging, the small sprocket may be put on the backside of the cassette.
