Great product, feels lighter and stiffer than my SLX one it replaced
Decent lightweight cassette. Usual Shimano quaility and along with an XT chain has revitalised the shifting on my ride.
I love these cassettes. I am a big lad, round 19stone and I enjoy long rides and sometimes mashing it on the trails. This cassette never complains. It does what it needs to do exceptionally. Its light and strong. This one I bought is a spare which will replace my current one once it finally wears out.
Definitely worth a buy. Might I add the exceptional next day delivery from Merlin. A win win situation
This cassette is arguably the best all round, value for money cassette on the market. Regardless of all the marketing hype, I have found No difference in shifting performance between XT and XTR and I've used both. I have found No greater longevity in XTR rather than XT. Nor have I found any of the offerings from Sram to be better or last longer. I have noticed a slightly better shifting performance, under load, between XT and lower Shimano levels. The weight is excellent. The price, here at Merlin. is unbeatable and needless to say, but I will say it anyway.....superb prompt service from Merlin.
I have several of these over the years and they have never let me down. Its worth while investing in the cassettes - smoother shifting and good wear. Couple this with a good quality chain and you should have no issues.
Top cassette overall.
Fantastic product for mid range budgets. Faultless shifting (coupled with an SLX derailleur. High quality is immediately obvious. Hollow structure amplifies the sound of the hub pawls making it sound fantastic when free wheeling ;)
As ever, Shimano XT shifts smoothly, reliably, no fuss. Fits perfectly, light, looks the biz!
I have had 10-15 of these cassettes. Strong and reliable.
I used to use a cheaper Deore cassette to reduce costs but thought I would treat myself to an XT one as a treat. The XT cassette is noticeably lighter on the bike being around 100g lighter. The gear changes are a lot crisper and quicker. I'm well impressed with it and the cost (cheapest on the internet).
An excellent compromise of weight, durability and cost, Coupled with a decent chain, like the SRAM PC991, shifting is excellent - rapid, quiet and dependable. Note that the larger cogs are pinned together and carried on a spider, which substantially reduces weight (because the 'middle bit' is missing) and reduces the wear on the freehub - this can be important for some of the aluminium-bodied freehubs which can be a tad 'soft' where the cassette would otherwise contact the freehub innermost flange.
Thoroughly recommended at the Merlin price
I fitted this to a new set of wheels easily. It looks great and as you expect from Shimano works quietly and efficiently.
Good cassette at the best price, in my opinion XT us the best price, weight, performance, durability compromise cassette, will get another when this wears out.
Great product... Had 2 of these in the last 5 years, and that's for a 5000 mile a year commuter.
Almost as light as the XTR it replaced but at a fraction of the cost. Perfect shifting has been restored. As expected, a high quality component at a great price and stunning service as always from Merlin.
Great quality and attention to detail. Fitted to hope hub to avoid damaging new hub with my existing steel cassette.
Shimano quality Merlin price and service the perfect combination. The XT cassette is the best performance versus price cassette available.
I've used the XT cassette on all our bikes, fantastic performance, lightweight and durable.
REALLY LIGHT CASSETTE AND SPIDER IN THE MIDDLE GIVES IT REALLY NICE LOOK AND SPREADS THE LOAD ON MOST OF THE GEARS ON TO ALL OF THE HUB INSTEAD OF BITING IN ON ONE SMALL SECTION. SHOULD KEEP THE EXPENSIVE HUB FROM BEING DAMAGED.
Great piece of kit and a great price too. Not the best in the market, but I have always found XT to be reliable with good performance. It's a good investment.
I always buy XT , it has great longevity , it's light weight, works like a dream with all of the 5 or so different brand/type chains I have run. So from a value point of view it's great and in my opinion better than the alternative brands.
The XT range is without a doubt the cassette to go for and at this price it's the best on the web.
Why would you buy anything else. Quite simply the best all round 9 speed cassette ever made. And at Merlins prices and delivery there's no more to be said.
I have tried both Shimano and SRAM cassettes and always end up bending teeth - especially on the four arm version's. This cassette is light, fairly robust and cheap enough to change out when needed without breaking the bank
Good value, and low weight.
As you would expect from Shimano a good product.
Top product with included XT chain
Why buy anything else? Especially for this price!
These are really good on Hope hubs as they do not chew up the free hub body as much as other shimano cassettes.
Nice Smooth changing action when used with the XT chain. Understated bling for the back of your bike. As ever, brilliant service and delivery from Merlin !
Great cassette at a great price.
This is a very good cassette that lasts a long time and shifts better than equivalent sram and is lighter.
And as usual Merlin posted very quickly, the same day in fact.
Lightweight and shifts beautifully even under load. I genuinely wasn't expecting to notice the difference between this and cheaper cassettes but this was worth every penny
a great cassette and very cheap pirice..you are the best ;)
Really pleased with this cassette gear changing is much improved over the Deore spec cassette installed previously. Build quality as you would expect from XT spec.
this xt cassette was here the next day after ordering as it is a 34 x11 has helped me out on steep climbs on road as well as off road chain shifts nicely over the sprockets have always had xt cassettes suit my bike perfectly.
Is there a better cassette for the price...I think not!
Already had an XT cassette but was suffering slippage of gears, so time to renew and this arrived swiftly from Merlin. Went for 11-34 this time to try a different gear ratio and must say I prefer it - since it allows me to stay in the middle ring more and use the 'granny' ring less often. Crisp shifting restored once again with typical XT precision.
Light, long lasting and shifts great with my KMC chain. Amazing service as always.
VERY GOOD PRICES & FAST DELIVERY,ALSO HAD THE ITEMS IN STOCK IMMEDIATELY
It makes my wheel turn round in a pleasing manner.
Dependable xt cassete. This product is excellent. I ran 1 bike at mountain mayhem (2012) the mud was epic, my shifting remained crisp throughout 24 hrs of riding.
Shimano quality, durability with great shifting and at Merlin prices you can't go wrong!
A solid performer, with reasonable weight and good durability at a great price, and the usual quick and easy service from Merlin.
A fine cassette, light, tough and at a great price. The shimano XT range of products are all you need on Mtb.
As to be expected awesome XT weight, reliability and price, made even more awesome by Merlin discount. Perfect for the trails, only marginally heavier than XTR and so much cheaper. If you clock up miles on your bike and aren't minted these are the cassette for you!
3rd new XT cassete that skips over 2nd top ring!!!
Great item that retains its finsh far better than other manufacturers cassettes. Highly recommended.
The cassette was the best price I could find on the net. With the free P&P and a very quick delivery, why look any further.
