Shimano's Tiagra CS-HG500 10-Speed Cassette offers a versatile gear range with high-quality construction. The computer-designed tooth configuration features contoured shift gates, resulting in a crisp smooth shift even under load. The sprockets are cut away and drilled to reduce weight without reducing rigidity. To prevent wear and corrosion, this cassette has a nickel-plated finish and a steel cassette lockring.

Living near the top of Mt. Scott, and getting older -), I increasingly appreciate a larger cog, so this 32 tooth gear is excellent. And customer service at Western is always helpful. Their advice and suggestions are given willingly, and I find it extremely helpful.
I use this on my gravel bike (on 27.5 wheels) with a 3248 adventure crank set-up. It allows me to climb about anything. I would like for it to be a little lighter, but the dependability is bullet-proof.
I think that sometimes there is the impression that if you pay more for bike parts that the more expensive parts work better. Not true. Tiagra is a good example of this. The Tiagra line functions perfectly. If you are worried about every gram of weight then, of course, buy Dura Ace. Tiagra suits me and my wallet.
I bought this cassette to replace the all black crummy looking 11-40 Sunrace cassette that came stock on my Trek DS4. Not only does it look so much more classy, it's an 11-42! Worked out just fine with the stock derailleur and chain. Shifts in to and out of the 42 easily. I am very happy with the outcome and glad I took the chance.
