    XG-1295 vs XG-1299 XX1 Cassette vs XO1 Lighter is less expensive?

    Does anyone know the exact specs on these cassettes? Is there any actual difference besides the color? Is the Gold just heavier and more expensive and that's all?

    Here is what I know:

    XX1 Eagle XG-1299 GOLD MSRP $428
    XO1 Eagle XG-1295 BLACK MSRP $367

    Bike rumor shows the weight of the XX1 cassette as 360 grams and the XO1 as 354 grams

    Anyone know more?

    Seems accurate to what I have found. Within 5 grams +/- no matter what I read. MR T edition will cost you I guess.

    1299/xx1 has a coating that’s suppose to make it last longer.

    Xo/1295 is about ten grams lighter

    Mark - I also ordered the X01 Eagle cassette from Bikeinn for the same price. It has been delayed because of other items in the order but is now on its way. I am now seeing two similar items on their site, one described as XG 1295 cassette (~$298) and one described as XG 1295 Eagle cassette (~$322). In the pictures, the difference between the two seems to be that the more expensive one has the white eagle graphics on the largest cog, and maybe some difference in the profile of the teeth. The two X01 cassettes I currently own have the white graphics. Does your cassette have the graphics? And do you or does anyone know whether there was an update to the design aside from graphics (teeth profile) that actually makes a difference between these two items?

    Thanks for any info!

    Just saw this and checked my cassette. It has white eagle graphic and box says xg1. On amazon they call it the x01 xg1295 so seems to be the same. I can say it shifts great so far!
