aside from its lightweight and pure beauty, beacuse it puts the weightt on the innermost part of you freehub body it is actually more efficient!

Weaknesses:    the biggest cog is a 32 and unlike the main cassette which is steel its aluminum. so it does wear out rather fast. Sram made it so you could replace it but never distributed the replacement rings.

Bottom Line:   
great cassette. is definetly a key part of an efficient drive train. between this cassette, the KMC chain, and the Sram XO cranks my bike climbs better than any bike out their! for those who think xx and 10 speed is all that, this cassette is lighter than the xx one!!
i would definetly recomend for a stronger rider tho because its lowest gear is only a 32.
