SRAM RED 10 speed Cassette installed

Installed the SRAM RED 10 Speed PowerDome onto the Zipp 404 hubs on my Cervelo P2. Initialy the installation is a bit tight and I was looking for some answers if a Spacer is required to be inserted in between the cassette and the Shimano 9/10 Freehub. Found a great site at that had a great chart for answer seekers such as myself. And the answer is... NO ...a spacer is not needed for a SRAM cassette on a Shimano 9/10 speed Freehub..

Here are some pictures of the beautiful and light RED PowerDome installed. Here are some specification from SRAM website on the RED PowerDome cassette.

The main cogset of the OG 1090 cassette is machined out of a single forged form that is heat treated and then shaped in a complex series of CNC-guided operations. Weight, stiffness, and strength-wise, the OG 1090 Cassette delivers titanium’s weight with solid steel’s superior strength and stiffness.
  • Lightweight: Innovative CNC‘d chromoly steel construction.
  • Durable: 35% harder than titanium!
  • Stiff: 15% stronger than its competitor.
  • OpenGlide technology allows for smoother transition between gears.
