  • Sprockets are milled and drilled to reduce weight while retaining rigidity
  • Special computer-designed tooth configuration with contoured shift gates for precise, smooth shifting, even under load
  • Close-ratio gearing lets you better control cadence for improved energy transfer efficiency
  • Compatible with super-narrow 10-speed Hyper Glide chains only

Can't Beat The Value!
The SLX cassette is only a few grams more than the XT model as it keeps the big gears that count on a spider. While the XT model isn't much more, I doubt you could possibly notice the difference so you can't go wrong with this. It shifts as good as the XT and you know it will last.

Smooth shifting
Replacement for an XT cassette for a set of wheels recently downgraded to "training". No perceivable difference in shifting smoothness. Weight
on my scales is 367 g comparing to 340g for the xt.

Solid construction with the 2 spacers for 9 and 10 speed hub
A bit heavy but you get a wide spider for the high torque gears. You also gain a tooth at the right place go those that ride at 15-18 mph

Great Cassette. Smooth shifting
It was time to replace my worn out SLX cassette since I was starting to get chain skip and some shark toothing. Replacment was easy and shifting is now way smooth.

Good Upgrade
I upgraded my drive train from an 8-speed to a 10-speed. i also upgraded from a 11-32 to this 11-36. it's made biking a little more fun.

I prefer it over XT...
I've used and broken a few XT cassettes...so I decided to drop down to a SLX cassette and see if that suited me better. I couldn't be happier. It's held up long enough for me to wear it out and replace it. Can't beat the price either...

How do i know how many teeth i need?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It really depends on riding style and what you have up front. 1 or 2 chainrings? If it's a mountain bike I would stick with the standard 11-36 and you'll be fine most anywhere but sustained climbs may hurt if you only have 1 chainring up front. If you have 2 then you will.be perfectly fine. If you're wanting to go to a 1x then I suggest looking into sunrace 11-42 cassettes for 10 speed.
Will this work on a Zee rear mech?
CarterLindblom on Feb 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Depends if you have the FR or DH version. I have the FR Zee mech with the exact cassette and it works perfectly.
My bike is an older Cannondale Gemini 1000 (lefty) with 9 speed Shimano XT components, would this fit the hub? I believe I have Cannondale hubs. I am converting the derailleurs and shifters to 10 speed as well. Thank you!
Jack L on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will fit...9/10 spd will fit your freehub. I had a 9 speed and this fit right on, no issues. 11 speed will not. Legit cassette for the price.
