    Comments about Shimano HG81 SLX 10 Speed Cassette:

    I replaced my old cassette with this one, same model number. It is durable! Only reason why I had to replace it is because I rode too long with an old chain.

          Comments about Shimano HG81 SLX 10 Speed Cassette:

          Installed the 11-36 cassette on my 27.5 FS 1x10 build. I use this in conjunction with a 30t oval chainring up front. Shifting is smooth, and the range is perfect for the types of trails I encounter where I live. I have gotten into (and out of) a couple of minor tight spots with the gearing range, but I knew what I was getting into when I decided to spec a 1x10 on my bike. The XT cassette would have been a few grams lighter, but I preferred to save a few dollars and try this cassette first.

                This is a great cassette. Gives me the gearing I need to climb anything, was easy to install, seems very solid but not too heavy. Paired with an XT Shadow RD and SRAM 10-speed chain, shifting is quick, smooth, and quiet. Was torn between this and the XT 10-speed cassette, but ultimately couldn't justify the extra $15, and I don't regret it for a second.
