    Good, solid product. Light yet extremely durable. Lasts for thousands of miles. Once I went XTR, I never went back. Why waste time or money on anything else?

        This is just flatout the coolest cassette period. Plus it's really quiet and feels like a toy, when you first take it out of the box, it's so light!

          The best there is. Precise shifting, super durable Ti cogs - I've been using mine for over 2 years and have had no drop in shift quality! Did I mention, it's Super light as well! I have one on my FR rig and my trail bike!

            Built to last, solid cassette. Bought and installed as an upgrade to my stock Trek. I considered switching to all SRAM with my AM build the same as my XC and hardtail, but wanted to have a different setup. Glad I did. This cassette feels positive when changing and is very durable. Recommended upgrade.

            This cassette...

            By Kris

            from Gillette, Wy

            Comments about Shimano M970 XTR 9 Speed Cassette:

            This cassette replaced a XT Cassette that I had managed to stretch the spider on. the big-ring end of the freehub interface had ovalized and caused the cassette to wobble at times. This XTR version uses a different spider design that cannot do that. It fits the freehub body tighter than the XT did and actually makes the freehub sound louder and more positive... I don't know if that's a feature or not, but it sounds cool. More money than XT, but definitely built to last.
