I have used these cassettes a few times now, they last very well, they don't seem to chew up alloy free hubs and they change gear well even when covered in crud.
Great Cassette for MTB, Look after it and it will last years.
Can't see why you'd want to spend more unless you want to start serious gram counting; shimano quality, relatively light, fairly hard wearing. Only a tiny bit heavier than XT, and much cheaper.
Bought and used these SLX cassettes before. They shift well, wear well and are sensibly priced. Also they dont seem to chew up our free hub like steel bodied cassettes do.
Bought this as part of a total refurb of my drivetrain. Awesome quality for the price. Changes are so slick now, makes me realise what I've been missing over the last few years.
Wish I'd bought one sooner.
My aged old XT cassette was long past it's best and this modern SLX alternative appears to be well put together and lighter with more individual sprockets (whether that's good or bad remains to be seen). Shifting is as slick as always and I'm happy to have a 34 tooth back there on the steep climbs.
The shimano SLX cassettte is a smooth operating piece of kit. Lightweight and versatile, being interchangeable between different wheel types. Gear ratio is sooooo good it can be used with a single ring up front, only for the die hard though as granny ring users will not be able to climb as well.
Quality and value for money comes as standard with the SLX, you will not be disappointed for the price.
Excellent service from Merlin as always .. high quality cassette , smooth changes and looks good ..
Light and durable..
SLX 9 speed cassette supplied exactly as described from Merlin Cycles Ltd. Easy to fit and crisp gear changing when bought with SLX hyperglide chain as advertised. Lightweight construction and a perfect compliment to either SLX shadow rear mech or Deore XT shadow alike. No issues and worth the extra.
Bought this to replace an older LX cassette. Light weight and slick crisp shifts with SRAM chain.
Lighter than deore. Shifting is ok with sram chain.
light and good shifting, the only problem is trying to keep it clean :)
Used it on my Specialized Demo 7, DH for this 2012 summer season - works perfectly. Bought it for the second bike.
value for money.
Looks great for the price. Nice and light too!!
Excellent value for money,
These HG80 cassettes are brilliant, thats a given.
Praising Merlins excellent customer service would be a better use of this space. Ordered and delivered in less that 48 hours for free with emails confirming the transaction and postage of the item. Worlds apart from the 4 day wait for an item with paid next day delivery with no emails notifying of the postage from a certain online shop with 'reaction' in the title.
Yet again the staff and service at Merlin comes up shining.
Nice bit of kit not sure about the difference in weight between this and the XT cassette.This is now my second SLX cassette having previously used an XT. Cannot justify the difference in price! Good quality and smooth shifting will buy again.
Haven't fitted the Cassette as yet as having wheels made up by Merlin. Great quality as far as I can see plus the Merlin prices that really can't be beaten!
Great value cassette
Top quality and light weight but still remains strong and durable. Must have.
Cheaper alternative to XT but still does the job well!
nice and light. really smooth indexing and quick shifting. Merlin delivered these ASAP too.
Top quality kit and long lasting (my last one lasted 18 months) couldn't find it cheaper anywhere else.
Hi Folks, decided to try this cassette after years of using xt ones however since moving to the Gritty Peaks, I barely get three months less than 1500k out of a cassette that's 4 a year, expensive.
Bought a steel Deore one but ditched that after my freehub started showing signs of wear, the hubs are even dearer than xt cassettes!
My initial opinion is positive, might not be as sharp out of the box but that really is barely noticable, now that it's run in a bit, feels just the same as the xt. If it lasts three months or exceeds 1500k I'll be happy.
cant really rate this component, its only been on the bike a few weeks.
Cracking service. Rapid delivery, great kit. Thanx.
