Mr BalajadiaMy 2nd cassette and it last for 5 years
Mr paolucciGreat cassette for the price works great with the xt-hg95 chain.
PeterNice & light cassette. Gear changes are so smooth and crisp now. Great value for money.
MyronWorks faultlessly with my 7800 Dura-Ace shifters and XT rear derailleur. Very happy with the quality and highly recommend this.
Mr PapadimitriouGreat cassette. Shifts perfectly and is long wearing. I'm on my 4th chain so I will probably need to replace soon. I'm very satisfied with its durability.
StephenI do a lot of miles and always go for XT. Its lighter then SLX and lasts far longer then XTR. I brought 2 at these prices.
Mr JefferyLike the chains Shimano cassettes are cheaper than the equivalent SRAM and last longer with no reduction in performance. Merlin cycles always seem to be best for price and prompt delivery for drivetrain components.
StephenXT cassette fit, forget and works flawlessly in the mud. Always my first choice.
MWAB65Shimano XT 10 Speed Cassette - Like for like replacement as light, durable and smooth shifting. Merlin delivery super quick as usual.
DaveWhen the driveline gets worn out its nice to replace it with quality items you know will work. The Shimano XT cassette is great and pretty easy on my aluminum Hope hub splines too with carriers for the cogs that carry the highest load to the hub. Merlin offers a competitive price and fast delivery too! Thank you Merlin Cycles!
BroughI use these or SRAM, both equally as good/durable.
Mr DunnLight and hard wearing. Easy to fit an expander ring as the smaller sprockets are removable
Mr ÇETİNKAYAI 've enjoyed using this, again about 15,000 km, thanks Merlin Cycles
Mr vanderzandenAbsolutely love the cost to benefit ratio of XT components and this is no different. Flawless performance at a low cost
Mr BlaiseI was surprised by how light this wide range cassette is. For XT level, quite impressive.
Mr RansomLike the new "double body" design. The middle cogs are no longer single cogs, but instead are in a cluster. This prevents them from cutting into the freehub. GREAT!!!
Mr HensonVery nice. Well made, and still very affordable. I chose the XT over the SLX because I wanted to have the option to remove the 17t cog later and add the 42t.
DunsterReplacement for worn item - light, works well, changes well, durable.
Ian JakemanExcellent price for an XT 10 speed cassette. I have used these before and have always thought it was worth the extra few pounds to go XT.
ReeveGood quality and smooth shifting. Perfect for the job.
Mr HalilbeyoğluProbably best MTB casette for the money
Mr NelsonI ride full XT on my Trek Remedy 9.9, good weight and awesome durability and function. Running a 3x10 system currently, if I needed to go to a 1x10 this is the cassette, just add your rear 40t or 42t and pull the 17t easy peazy.
Mr Villa-AbrilleSolid reliable cassette. Lightweight and durable. This is my go-to cassette for all my mountain bikes.
HardyI was surprised by the low weight. This range works out for me using a 28T ring upfront. XT bits really are a solid choice for reliability and cost.
Mr howesLight and quick, great changes
Mr smithExcellent quality 10 speed cassette, opted for the 11-36t as I plan to go one chainring upfront the the xt cassette will split up into numerous pieces to enable the 17t cog to be removed and replaced with the 40t or 42t xpander to ensure all gears are covered , plus it saves 120 grams on the equivalent bike fitted Deore cassette, for the money a great weight saving and also slicker gear changes
Antony CXT , in my opinion, are always nice robust components that can take the hammer of my daily (offroad) commute without having to replace them every 3 months. And at this price they are a bargain
downeyFast accurate shifting
StockdalePerformance and value for money cannot be beaten. Strong and reliable
NebresWorks great with my KMC10SL chain.
BC_DogJust what the Doctor ordered for my new build. 11-36 gave me the range I needed for speed as well as difficult climbs. Nice ratios- use all gears on and off trails!
Mr AlbrechtGreat value for money product. Relieble and good lifespan
Mr DeOrnelasSmoother and lighter than the SRAM it replaced..
Mr LapinSeems to work reasonably well. Gear spacing is much better for me than the 11/27 and 11/28 cassettes it replaced.
Mr RideoutLight. Shifts are crisp and responsive
AlastairLinked with an XTR shifter and XT chain I'm experiencing precise, smooth shifting and could not ask for better.
Mr ArmourHad an SLX cassette before this one is lighter than SLX and looks slightly more high end. Shifts well with XT rear mech and KMC chain. Normal shimano quality and durability.
Marcelo FranchiIdeal for 1x10 conversions because you can remove the 15t and make room for a 42t-rex or a oneup ring in order to maximize your range
slopedragonThis cassette is kinder to hope aluminium hubs than the slx equivalent. The ratchet washer gave a nice tight fit.
SteveJust faultless shifting! And worth the little extra over SLX now winter has gone! :)
Merlin the greatAlmost 1000 miles out of the first set
Mr SmithThis was my 4th shimano xt cassette. Great price at Merlin and the cassette is super. All my bikes / family bikes run these and no problems. Light enough, strong enough for everyday riding.
Simon T from OzLight, shift great, wear well.
Mr RodriguezVery smooth and a cost effective approach to the xtr version it repalced
Mr AtkinsonCosts a little more than lower spec cassettes but lightweight and very durable making it excellent value in my book!
Mr ClitherowDoes the trick, slick shifting, not much else to say. Great price at Merlin!
Mr PlunkettHad one of these for 2 years on a Hope Pro 2 Evo hub and its hardly done any damage to the aluminium free hub body as the alloy spider works really well.
Mr YiuThis must be the 3rd XT cassette that I have bought. XT is the cheapest that I can use because I have an alloy freehub, anything without an alloy carrier will chew straight through it. For me, it lasts for about 3 chains as long as I don't let the chain wear past 1.0 so good longevity as well
Mr FullerGreat item, ideal for 10-speed single ring set-up. Good value and hard wearing. Arrived quickly too, thanks Merlin.
MBRDoesn't groove the aluminum body on freehubs, unlike Sram cassettes at this price point, due to the granny and larger cogs ganged onto a carrier.
Mr QuinnellGreat kit, light, smooth shifting and with a 32T at the front I can get up most things now :)
Mr BlenkhornReplaced a slx cassette. Much better shifting (with a XT chain). Very easy install.
BashringLight, strong, shifts flawlessly, can't fault it
Mr StreakOrder one for a friend previously and had to get one my self! Quality, weight and price make it an easy choice. Not sure why I went deore originally, the price difference is insignificant. Perfect for all 1x10 setups and makes installing a 40T/42T range extender a piece of cake!
Mr PriestleyOnly cassette I ever buy. Top notch
Mr BerkebileI have put 200 miles and 30000 vertical feet in the few weeks since I have put this cassette on my wagon. And it shifts like a charm and sheds mud like a champ. Everything you would expect from shimano XT. I put the entire dyna system drive train on my bike and have never felt such precise shifting.
Mr noltingPaired with CN-981 chain, Zee derailer, Race Face Narrow/ wide ring. Worked great. shifts nice.
Mr WoodLighter and crisper shifting than the SRAM PG1050 that it replaced. Really appreciate the alloy carriers that will go easy on my Hope Evo hub. This is easily one of the best bang for buck upgrades I've made.
Mr GilbertBullet proof. Lasts forever, shifts smooth. Doesn't mar my aluminum free hub bodies.
Mr BellonWell made, my first XT and it is a little lighter and shifts better than the Sunrace 11-36.
AndyCGreat cassette have these on both my bikes, find it's worth spending the extra on drive train. XT always seems to be easy to setup and index and stays like that. Great price and service as usual.
TinmanUsual excellent Shimano quality and a fair weight saving over the SLX cassette it replaced. Bargaintastic Merlin price delivered super fast as always.
Jonathan SEasy to install, only had a couple of rides on it but silky smooth. Very nice piece of equipment. Would highly reccomend
Mr dawesGreat cassette, nice use of mounting spiders so it shouldn`t dig into my freehub like cheaper models and slick gear shifts. Very happy
Mr mewThe cassette is long lasting and takes a lot of abuse out on the trail. It pairs up with my drive train perfectly and offers me 9-12 months of riding at an excellent price. Even at RRP it is as good as an XTR version.
MatheusAwesome cassette! Flawless shifting, and very light! Perfect!
Mr Scale60Very light cassette compared to my old Deore HG62. When combined with a XT HG94 chain, a XT M785 2-speed crankset and XT front and rear deraillers the shifting is smooth and fast and there's no audible transmission noise.
Craig from KentShifts great and does not weigh a tonne, always go for xt cassettes as xtr is just to much to justify. Great delivery from Merlin as normal.
NickOnly cassette that would fit onto my Hope Pro 2 freehub without damaging it. Light weight and great shifting as usual.
Mr ItikawaGreat quality and price. Light weight . Great product.
Mr JONESHard wearing and light, shifts slick too!
Mr JenkinsonGood value. Great weight. All around good performance at the right price.
Andy CouzensAs usual item received very quickly. Nice and light, probably didn't need the 36 though, especially for the light HT it's gone onto it's huge! May swap it onto my heavier bike.
Mr PointonGreat piece of kit, light and really nice to look at! Nice piece of engineering at a great price
AllySeems like an excellent cassette so far, shifts well with a SRAM chain. Bought to replace my SRAM PG1050 which did not last long. Alloy spider should be kinder to my Hope hub, the PG1050 had damaged the freewheel body. Best price on the internet and delivered free within in 2-3 days.
Mr HastingsI now have two of these and use them on 10 speed equipped Ultegra road bikes. The largest 6 sprockets are on wide carriers so stop the hub being marked and it gives me much better gearing options for the mountains I cycle in. They work with an Ultegra (RD-6700-GS) rear mech if using a triple and (RD-6700-SS) with a compact. They shift extremely well.
Mr RiellyThe best cassette money can buy
Mr TaylorGreat price and better shifting than my current SRAM cassette!
JasonGood weight and shifts great!
101SCCLighter than the equivalent SRAM, great quality and no guilty feeling like killing a XTR cassette!
Mr smithLight and well made. Great price
Mr MirandaOk, thanks, very good, very fast
Mr MiddletonIs there any cassette that matches this? Excellent balance between VFM and Performance!
Mr StylesAfter getting good usage out of an XT 9 speed cassette on my last bike, I don't see why I shouldn't get the same service from this one. It replaced an SLX cassette which was fitted to my camber, I matched it with a new XT chain and the gear changes are now super crisp and smooth. its also lighter and looks better than the SLX it has replaced. Also worth pointing out the rings are mounted on an alloy hub which is a must if using a Hope hub with a alloy free body to avoid damaging the free body As always, next day arrival of items, and great price. Merlin always deliver fast.
Mr ChisemWorks fine!
Mr NewboldUpgraded from SLX - Great move
Mr JenkinsonGreat quality. Light weight with seamless shifting.
Mr dawsonAs always, next day arrival of items, great price and no nonsense. Merlin always sort you out!
Mr IRWINUnless you want to waste money, this is the best you can get. Super light, super smooth shifting performance.
Mr CastelloGreat as expected
Mr ParkerNice lightweight cassette
Andy BarkerI did all the usual comparisons and Shimano on this size cassete is lighter weight and better priced than its major competitor. After getting good usage out of its predecessor on 9 speed I don't see why this shouldn't give the same service,just make sure you get the 10 speed Shimano chain for super smooth gear changes.
Mr LAUno need to say. It's an Shimano XT.
JohnnyStormGreat bit of kit. Loads lighter than a deore 10 spd and really crisp shifting. For what it's worth it also looks a quality item.
Mr higginsIts like a nine speed xt cassette but goes one louder. Louder is better, right?
