Some com­po­nents look al­most too pretty to use. Ro­tor’s Uno cas­sette is one of them, thanks to its (al­most) one­piece hol­low de­sign. But it’s more than a piece of art. This 11-28t cas­sette graced the Cy­clist scales at just 135g, in­clud­ing the lock­ring. That’s a sav­ing of at least 40g over Shi­mano’s top-tier Dura-ace and even more over Cam­pag­nolo’s Su­per Record. Sram’s range-top­ping 11-speed XG-1190 gets closer at a claimed 151g, but that’s still 16g of ex­tra bag­gage you’ll have to carry up hills. Your wal­let will be a fair bit lighter too.
