I wouldn't trust a KHE cassette.

They're more of a coaster company and even they suck..

KHE lolita is an alright cassette in actual fact. Bog standard, no frills and just a cassette really - if you're strapped go for it!

it uses really basic internals. there isn't much to go wrong. my mate had one for ages that he got with his KHE complete and it did him really well.

Looks good. I own a Khe Hure hub and it's been great.

Standardized.
Only comes in black, 9t, and 36h.

Much cheaper for a company to make products if they're all exactly the same.
