A fresh coat of paint.
You've ridden mid-range, workhorse componentry for years now, eschewing the latest and greatest for the pragmatic choice time and time again. If you're finally stepping up your drivetrain game, go all the way already and upgrade to Red. One of the defining members of the groupset, the resplendent XG-1190-A2 Cassette acts just as much as a work of art as it does a highly functioning member of your drivetrain, and it's been gifted with shiny new aesthetics this year to match the all new SRAM Red eTap components.
Quiet and light are the defining features of the XG-1190, which SRAM achieves with its PowerdomeX construction and StealthRing elastomers that sit between each cog to eliminate noise. The technologies contribute to a quiet ride and clear, clean shifts that may leave you feeling like something is missing for your first few rides if you're used to clunks and jumps accompanying every shift. SRAM machines the entire piece for the utmost precision, with the middle nine cogs featuring a hollow construction to shave weight and further eliminate noise.
If you want to follow SRAM's recommendations, pair the XG-1190 with the SRAM Red or PC-1170 chain, and use it with any SRAM componentry from Red eTap to Rival. Just don't try to pair an XG-1190 cassette wider than 11-28t with an eTap rear derailleur, as the two aren't compatible.

light for race day
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
race day cassette, light and crisp shifting. I'd recommend this cassette for racing not for daily use.

Lightweight, smooth, accurate shifting performance. Not much more you can ask for in a cassette.
Just triple checking that an 11-28t XG-1190 cassette is compatible etap. Can you confirm before I order.
Absolutely, running it on my Zipp 303's, swap back & forth with 1-25, no issues.
SRAM 11-speed compatible, 28t maximum capacity
WiFLi™ option fits up to 32t
