All riders, all terrain. SRAM's most popular cassette goes 11-speed, providing even better gearing options.
The 11th cog and updated tooth profiles go hand-in-hand with SRAM's cutting edge Force 22 groupset. When paired with the double crankset, you get 22 useable gears, right at your fingertips. Yet despite these changes, the PG-1170 still maintains all the core design features of the celebrated 1070 10-speed cassette. Heat-treated steel cogs ensure extended durability, and the largest four cogs are fixed to an alloy carrier for weight savings and stiffness.
The PG-1170 Cassette is compatible with the Force 22 and Red 22 11-speed chains. It's available in a variety of gear spreads. The claimed weight is 231 grams (11-25T).

What's great about this product? Unlike Shimano 11-speed cassettes for road use, you can separate most of the cogs on the SRAM cassettes, allowing much more thorough cleaning between maintenance intervals. Additionally, the gearing is a huge benefit for these cassettes (11-36T) over the Shimano equivalent (11-34T). The spacing in the lower cogs is only 1T apart, meaning that the cogs go 11-12-13... and then fan out near the cassette top. This gives great ratios for flats and descents, as well as gear options for climbing. Moreover, these cassettes are EXTREMELY durable - I have yet to break a tooth, and I ride these for 10,000 mi+ in all sorts of weather conditions - they show minimal wear (I do keep them clean between rides, and especially thorough on maintenance intervals). They are made of very resilient steel. Although, they can be a bit louder than the Shimano counterparts due to having many different separate cogs separated by spacers, versus a lot of them connected via a couple of spiders, it is much more practical, and you get used to it. Again, this design makes the cassette much easier to inspect and clean. I would never go back to the Shimano equivalents. I always buy these, and I have never had any issue with them. HIGHLY recommend them if you're on the fence. Shimano "GS" derailleurs will shift 11-36T just fine - Shimano just specifies the maximum limit to 34T as they do not make anything larger than 34T. I've used these fine in 11-36T configurations on Shimano GS/RX derailleurs - mechanical and Di2. FLAWLESS.
Like many others, finding the components you need has been challenging the last couple of years. I needed a cassette with the range I wanted that was shimano compliant. At the time of purchase this one was the only available and met my needs.
This 11-36 cassette works as advertised, and also works with Shimano drive train and Ultra 6780 GS derailleur (which says it will go up to 34 cassette). It's perfect for my gravel bike when I get on those 16%+ grades.
I put this on my Gravel Bike (Sram Rival 1X drivetrain) to give me a little more gearing for steep gravel around here. Easy to install and didn't have change my chain either. Bike came with a 32 but the 36 just gives me a bit more help when I need it.
I recently got this for my Tacx Neo for indoor Zwifting this winter. I do about 250 miles a week on Zwift and I really wanted a premium cassette for buttery smooth shifting and this 11-36 Force cassette delivered!!! I got it on a daily special for 65 dollars and went a head and got an 11-32 while I was at it. I did the whole Planet Hoth thing last year but after my insulated water bottles froze solid I knew this year I would spend the cash and stay in my living room. I normally run an 10-42 Sram XX1 1199 MTB cassette on my carbon Giant TCX but after demoing Zwift at the LBS I learned the hills on Zwift were about 70% of real hills!!! this a perfect indoor training cassette and I would recommend it to anyone serious about cycling.
Shimano 11-40 ioverkill and 11-34 is to little for my gravel bike. Sram 11-36 is ideal gearing for me. Also the spacing between gears is a little closer compared with the 11-40. The downside is it doen't shift quite as smoothly as Shimano Hyperglide.
All my bikes have been equipped with Campy, and buying a new bike I was sold to tryout SRAM....
I put 6000 miles on the cassette this summer, and just loved the whole system!!!!
At my age, its better to mouline than push the big gears..... I wish they provided cassette from 13,and up, since I never used 11and12....!!!!
I live in WA and we do have some longer climbs so I wanted some extra gears as I do more fondo's. This gearing gives me more range to climb with less pressure on my knees than before. I ride sram 1x on the front and this gives me everything I need on the low and high end.
