Good for hope freehub with 3 largest cogs retained by alloy housing with wider splines. Good profiling, light action gear change.

***** on 30/04/2015

Great product, Great price! Brought as I was upgrading to a 10 speed setup, installed easily and quickly. Very quiet gear changes with no slippage. Good range of gears with hard wearing teeth. Would recommend to anyone wanting to upgrade. As good as xt just much cheaper! Used with Zee rear mech, HG95 Chain and Narrow Wide chainring.

***** on 23/03/2015

A longer lasting and cheaper version of the XT cassette just heavier (obviously as its smaller cogs are steel instead off alloy). Both of which work flawlessly.

***** on 19/03/2015

Great cassette, I love it! Offers smooth shifting, strong, relatively light weight and very affordable! would recommend!

***** on 15/03/2015

Light weight, smooth action, I would expect nothing less from Shimano.

***** on 14/03/2015

Love these cassettes. Why spend more for XT when the SLX is this good

***** on 28/02/2015

Great value. Light enough, durable, solid, and if you're a nerd its the best gram per dollar ratio out there.

***** on 14/02/2015

Typical Shimano really, absolutely lovely quality with typical solid, smooth shifting. Have to say, I quite like the two-tone finish, sophisticated and though the difference is less pronounced in real life than on product photos, it differentiates it nicely from either Deore or XT cassettes, not that it really matters of course.

Im running 1x10 with a 11-36t and a single 38t on the SLX M675 Double Chainset and that ratio combination is a proper weapon around Sherwood Pines and Cannock Chase, plenty of top end, but with a useful bottom end when needed.

Really great price (with the current offer of an extra 10% off its only a couple of pounds more than the Deore cassette) and super-speedy dispatch and next-day delivery service from Merlin, also, it is worth noting (for those that care about such things) that my orders from Merlin were shipped in their original Shimano packaging unlike some other well known online bike stores that dont instead merely shipping theirs wrapped in a plastic bag and bubble wrap. So bonus points for Merlin too in that respect!

***** on 13/02/2015

Nice quality cassette with smooth shifting. Have bought one previously and liked the quality. Especially like Merlin for the service and price.

***** on 02/12/2014

Solid, reliable and lightweight

***** on 05/08/2014

Sturdy and slick shifting. Usually buy XT cassettes but the SLX no noticeable degradation in performance and only a few grams heavier. Great price too.

***** on 19/02/2014

Great cassette very sturdy but fairly light, as with all of Shimano's SLX range it feels and performs like a much higher priced piece of equipment.
Looks wise it is no head turner but it does the job fine and thats all that matters.

***** on 29/10/2013

Brillant product been using this cassette since 2011, hard wearing and shifts well through the gears

**** on 10/07/2013

This cassette works great. I am running a full Zee 1x10 setup with a 32 ring in the front and this 11 to 36 in the back.
It provides a great climbing gear for my long fire road climb and also some tight switchback uphills. I havent spun it out yet on a downhill either. Ridden in Whistler bike park Squamish and on Vancouver's north shore i find it a great gear ratio. Could be lighter... but then it would cost more

***** on 22/06/2013

Crisp shifting. Despite the weight, it functions as well as XT. A good alternative which is put together with the rest of my XT setup.

***** on 12/05/2013

Reasonable weight, longevity and cost - always the sensible option!

***** on 27/04/2013

Great cassette. Only a bit heavier than the xt, doesn't look quite as pretty as the xt but fantastic value for money.

Shifts crisply, and quickly. I replaced a high end SRAM cassette with this, and run it with an xt chain. It is FAR FAR better.

Highly recommended as a hard wearing everyday piece of kit. 10/10.

***** on 18/04/2013

I bought this originally to make into Chinese throwing stars because it was so inexpensive. However, when I received it I decided the quality was so good I would try it on my rear wheel. The thing works as flawlessly as my XT and XTR cassettes. Buy one they are great. Make your XTR cassette into Ti throwing stars instead, HI Ya!

***** on 09/04/2013

Great cassette. I have these and xt versions on another bike and cannot really tell them apart other than in looks which soon goes with use.
Longevity seems fine and compatibility with SRAM chain is no problem.

***** on 03/04/2013

Easy to fit, lightweight and holds the chain well - why pay more?

***** on 02/04/2013

Loadagears - time to ditch the front mech and grannie.

***** on 31/03/2013

A great looking bit of kit. Going 1x10 and this fits the bill with a great price from Merlin

***** on 15/03/2013

Last SLX cassette lasted 1800miles, replaced by XT which lasted only 900miles. Sticking to SLX especialy at this great price.

***** on 12/03/2013

Seems to be stronger and shifts alot better than the sram PG 1050 that it replaces

***** on 29/01/2013

So far so good. Went onto my Hope Pro II hub with ease - feels solid and runs smooth. Hope it lasts as long as my last one

***** on 13/01/2013

Super fast delivery, great price, great product. Recommended

***** on 08/01/2013

Fast ship, perfect Cassette

***** on 27/12/2012

Nice light cassette which was a pleasure to fit and with the chain I now have spot on gear changes

***** on 05/12/2012

Very good service.Arrived well packed and as described on the site.Thanks Merlin!!

***** on 01/11/2012

I use my mtb as its meant to be used so transmission parts wear out fast, Merlin's service and price means it's not painful when replacements are needed

***** on 30/10/2012

Great product

***** on 20/09/2012

normally get XT but the SLX is just as good

***** on 21/08/2012

excellent quality product. xt Deore compared to the weight difference because in terms of both quality is equivalent for a lower price. Merlin happy for the service.

***** on 18/08/2012

Almost as light as XT, shifts like XT and the bigger rings are on an alloy spider like XT but not XT price. In the British muddy summer you'd be mad to spend the extra!

***** on 17/08/2012

Great price and amazing delivery time .........Thanks Merlin .

***** on 08/07/2012

Purchsed this item form Merlin Cycles and had it within a few days (Ireland). Great service and prices as always from Merlin cycles.
