D/A vs ultegra cassette(3 posts)

D/A vs ultegra cassetterob45
Jul 24, 2002 7:45 AM
anyone happen to know the weight difference between D/A and ultegra cassettes. Performance catalog has them both listed at 210 grams, which is surprising, since I'd suspect some weight savings in the D/A. It's a lot more expensive, so wondering if it's worth the extra $$,

Perf. catalog has a lot of errors.
Approx. 40 gram difference, DA @ 162 gr. advertised.
Ultegra will probably outlast DA. Worth it? You decide.

thanks for the info--lots of places to knock off 40-50 grams here and there, as you point out usually a tradeoff though (durability etc)
