Opaque chrome plated steel cogs with an Ergal 7075 lock ring
Weight: 254g (11-21)
Works a treat
After agonising for months over gear choice I eventually opted for the Miche cassette as part of an upgrade from 9 to 11 speed. The rest of the gear-set is all 105 5800 apart from the chain which is KMC X11 EL. I chose the Miche as it is the only one which offered the 29-12T gearing that I wanted. I really don't understand why Shimano think everyone wants an 11T at the back - it's pointless and with 11 sprockets to play with they really should provide a much wider choice like they used to do on the 9 and 10 speeds. Rant over.
The other "benefit" of the Miche cassette is separate sprockets, so technically you can vary the gearing for specific circumstances (there are some must have's though) and it makes for easier cleaning.
I've only done a handful of miles on this cassette so cannot comment on longevity or quality overall. But, shifting is near perfect with the rest of the 105 components. It seems quiet enough - perhaps not as quiet as 105 \ Ultegra but I can't say that it bothers me.

HI Would this cassette work with a dura ace set up ?Wanting to change it for the Fred Whitten only ?Needing a 12 -30 rear cassette.
Thank you for your question.
Yes, this would be compatible with Shimano 11-spd groupsets.
Unfortunately, the 11spd Dura-Ace (9000) rear derailleur will only accept upto 28T on the cassette.
