So HG+ delays the upshift? I'm not sure how I feel about that. It also seems keyed to some very tight physical tolerances. What result when the system has 500 miles of wear and cruft? No one likes the endless skipping of an almost-upshift.  To me, the hub is the most exciting part of this group. Silent, light, presumably strong and reliable, and decent engagement? Sign me up. I still think SRAM has better cassettes \(one-piece steel > titanium, the 11S 10-42 undercuts this new "light" XTR 10-45 by 50g\), but ditching the freehub noise is even more compelling. Compelling enough that a surprising number of folks stomach P321's endless grease issues and the Onyx anchor to get it. Let's hope it doesn't stay an XTR-only feature.
