First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
@2bigwheels: That 12 speed cassette is a massive boat anchor though...It's almost 600g. It's cheap but goddamn it's heavy.

Garbaruk 10 x 50 Wide-Range 11-Speed Cassette for SRAM XD Drivers - Review
@Veloscente: I have been in my TRSr for a year and have no noise at all. E13 cassettes had this issue more with the 9-44 cassettes. They addressed the noise issue with an additional plastic sleeve on the TRSr and TRS+. All their cassettes now come with this sleeve so all good. PB even did and article on this if I recall. Shifting has been super smooth as well. I find it better than the 11-46 XT cassettes.

The E13 9-46 cassette is just as light, has more range, and is cheaper...I've been using mine all year with great results!

Looks like a good product, but not sure it's unique enough for me to stop using the E13 9-46. I get more range with the E13 cassette, it's just as light, and it's cheaper (can be had for $225 at most online retailers). Good to see more options though!

The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@j-wasilenko: Totally personal preference, but the E13 cassette shifts WAY better than the XT 11-46 cassette. The 37-46 jump on the XT cassette sucks and it's HEAVY. E13 tires are the favorite of many of my riding buddies who have previously been on Minions, so for us the YT E13 spec is a bonus!

e*thirteen TRS Race SL Carbon Wheels - Review
Even without a discount they have them on for $1275 a set. Pretty decent for a wheelset with lifetime warranty!

That’s why the also have the 31mm internal TRsr. The comparison Mike does isn’t really comparing apples to apples.

Return of the Goat - Video
They're just using e13 cassettes for the most part in order to use more Shimano derailleurs and shifters. 90% of the cranks they are using are RF....I MUCH prefer the e13 cassette to the crappy Shimano XT cassette (much more range, lighter, and better shifts in the small gears) so not sure what you're really talking about?

YT Industries Releases Autobiographical Video, New Branding & 2018 Range
@StraightLineJoe: Heard the opposite, that Gwin actually went many races with the same carbon wheelset, and on races where he did break a rim, he was able to finish the run. The teams using alu rims in those races went through 6 or 7 rims where Gwin went through 1 or 2. Wheels need to hold up to win races and I think Gwin has proven the E13 carbon wheels are up to task. Even The PB review said that their test set were early sample wheels to start, and when they got the production wheels they held up to over a year of bike park and freeride abuse and are still going strong. I did hear the issue about crank removal (happened to my friend and E13 took care of him), but sounds like all new cranks come with self extractors now. I personally are loving my wheels and post. Been using both for a season and have had zero issues...E13 is on track and learning from past mistakes for sure...

I’ve had the opposite experience. Super smooth shifting, zero creaking and it’s been very durable so far. When to top teeth do wear out (as they do on XX1 and X01 Eagle as well) I’ll just replace the large cluster of the cassette. PB nominated the cassettes for component of the year and many agreed with the decision, so I think this a good move by YT. I know so many people with Eagle who have problems keeping the derailleur adjusted properly. Add to that the weight of the system, and the massive length of the derailleur and I for one am happy they are staying 11 speed!
