MarkBest cassette for and e-bike, steel gears and cheaper in price, I've tried them all and this is the best. Alloy gears strip the 10th and 11th gears very quickly. Thanks Merlin
Mr AllardGreat product at an excellent price. Fitted to wheel and it shifts great. Cheaper than the equivalent Sram option.
Mr WaltonExcellent cassette. I like that its all steel as I value durability over reduced weight. Good price and delivery time from Merlin.
Andy LodgeLove it, smooth changing, good ratios and the 46t climbing cog just gives that bit extra for a big lad like me.
marcusThe best cassette I've ever owned I've got them on all my bikes now better than Shimano
LeeHaving purchased a bike with Sram nx group set I found I needed a lower first gear for climbing, so not wanting to sacrifice top speed I decided to purchase this cassette, and it has been brilliant. I prefer the more linear spacing and the extra bit of climbing ability has made all the difference. Plus the shifting between gears seems to be very good. Overall I'm very impressed with it.
Mr RobertsNice well built bit of kit, fitted nicely to my Hope hub. Would recommend.
ianA great price, good range and the steps between the gears is sensible. If might not be the lightest cassette but it should last and the price compared to other cassettes is fantastic.
Ms KIMThis 11-46T 11-speed cassette from SunRace replaces my well-used/abused SRAM 11-42. The cassette is lightweight and smacks of quality design and engineering. The assembly is similar/same as the Shimano XT and shifting has been smooth as butter. Also, the 46T over 42 gives just a little more 'granny gear' for the extra-steep climbs. Overall, the SunRace cassette offers equal, if not superior, quality to the SRAM/XT at an unbeatable price. Recommended.
Mr WoodwardGreat alterative to Sram or Shimano cassette. I replaced an XT cassette and couldn`t really tell any difference. Smooth gear changes and I like the black look.
Mr KirkBought this cassette to replace an 11-46 shimano m8000 cassette that was only fitted in February. I have found the shimano m8000 really soft and have already worn out 3 in a much shorter time than any other cassette I have ever used. I was looking for an alternative and this seemed like the only option. I bought this cassette from Merlin because it had black aluminium spider as opposed to the red one that's commonly available. I only have two rides on this cassette which I have paired with a shimano 105 chain but have found the shifting significantly smoother than the Shimano XT cassette I was on before. I also prefer the more even gaps between the largest two cogs but I suppose that's just preference. The aluminium carriers have a much better tolerance than the shimano cassette that it replaced. It fits really snuggly on the shimano free hub body on my hope pro 4 cassette which is great although it did actually get jammed on my free hub body which gets a bit marred on hope hubs. Bear this in mind if you have a soft alloy free hub body, you may need to file down any marks to ensure you can get this cassette on and off smoothly. Ultimately so far I find this a way better alternative to shimano cassettes with smoother shifting, more even gaps between gears and I've found it quieter on the trail too. It's also black which is a positive, It's good value, not heavily branded and plays well with the shimano m8000 mid cage derailleur i'm using. I've only got two rides on it so far so can't comment on durability or how quickly the black finish will wear off but i suspect both will be good and if so would have no quams recommending this to anyone looking for a shimano compatible wide range cassette.
