    Difference between Open Glide vs Power Glide cassette?

    I am thinking about buying a 2nd cassette for my 2nd set of wheels. Anybody know what's the difference in performance? My bike come with a 12-25 pg-1070 and I went on Sram's website and notice the open glide cost more, thus I am curious.

    Do they even make an OG-1070 anymore? Power Glide is suppose to be quieter than the OG. I believe the OG had different cut teeth to make them shift better. I've been using a PG1070 for years, they work great.

    Here is a review from RBR.

    Here's a thread about them also.

    If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?

    Wrong...
    Open glide is 1st gen Sram cassettes. Stick with Powerglide, noticeable performance improvement!
