Why We Like The PG-1170 Cassette

The SRAM PG-1170 Cassette provides smooth shifting across 11 gears with its semi-spidered steel cogs. Ideally pairing with SRAM's Force 22 groupset, the PG-1170 cassette features a 16T cog for extra cadence control and delightfully smooth shifting when you're hovering around the middle block of the cassette. X-Glide shifting technology eliminates flex between the teeth to enhance shifting smoothness, especially on downshifts. Note that SRAM recommends pairing this cassette with its PC-1170 chain for flawless shifting. Moreover, it's only compatible with 11-speed hub/freehub bodies, and it includes an anodized, laser-etched aluminum lockring.

As Full Range As Needed

I've used it several times

I have a Frankengravel Poseidon X. I used 105 components since it's ridden as much on as off road. The Shimano 11-32t I had was not comfortable & I could never find a gear I liked. This cassette has a wide enough range to keep up with the bunch on & off road. Even with my 46/36 crank. I'm never struggling to find a gear I can spin or drop the hammer on. My only complaint is a tinny pinging from the first cog on the main body of the cassette when shifting into it. It is pricey but I'm considering a 2nd for my road wheelset on the same bike.

Great CX cassette

I've put it through the wringer

I needed a few steeper gears for my Ridley X-Night SL and this cassette did the trick. Matched to the SRAM Force 1 system and works flawlessly with the standard cage derailluer. No complaints.

It works

I've put it through the wringer

Bought this to replace the 11-34 I have on my bike and was concerned it might not work with my Derailleur which is a Shimano 6800 gs,had read a lot of reviews saying it would and would not work but it was just a plug and play thing.As a matter of fact I could have used the same chain that was on the 11-34 but I had a new chain so I sized it to the old chain and it was perfect, a little tweaking of the limit screws and B screw and that was it,YMMV it has a lot to do with the geometry of your frame and derailleur hanger whether it will work.

SRAM + Backcountry = RAD!!!

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

I know the other guys make good cassettes (and great fishing poles too!?!), but I?m a SRAM guy, and always will be! The PG-1170 11-36 is the perfect pie-plate for the long steep climbs around my house, and getting it quick from Backcountry at a good price is all a middle aged man in lycra can ask for. Amateur Tip: This 11-36 cassette paired with a Wolftooth Roadlink may not impress the mechanics at your LBS, but they will pair up just fine with pretty much any setup you?ve got to give you the mechanical advantage you need to make your local suckfest climb suck just a little bit less.
