Added a comment about feature Discover the All-New Shimano SLX and XT 12-Speed Drivetrains, Brakes and More 9/19/2019 12:36 PM

If you buy the SLX cassette, shifter, chain and derailleur it costs about the same as a high end light weight 11 speed 9-46 cassette (like E13), but you still need the driver, and you'll end up with a heavier drivetrain (by about . half pound). You could buy a Sunrace cassette too if weight isn't an issue (they are heavy though). Changing to GX Eagle is also an option, but will add a bunch of weight and be more expensive. Those reasons above is why I stayed 11 speed with a wider range cassette!

I've had 2 pairs for about a year. Still trust them more than the RF and SRAM carbon cranks I broke in well under a year. I agree the older cranks were sub par (but no worse than the early SRAM X01 carbon cranks out there that broke a ton). The new cranks ... more ยป

Would you say this tire had a plethora of knobbies?

I like it. I run a Minion SS normally but I'd give this a whirl.

I've been using the Minion SS and I love it, traction is amazing even on mud. This one looks great.

Strange. I have several off these on different bikes and they have been great. Wider range than current eagle 12s even, no problems with wear, shift great. I have had to replace the alloy section on one bike but that was after months of a fair amount of riding....and way better than...more

Crappy. Given the majority of people having great experiences with this cassette I'd reach out to E13 again and see about a replacement. Maybe the one you have has a manufacturing defect or something. It seems to be the only explanation. Most of the reviews I've read have been great (including this Vital review) so there must be something else at play here.

That's a weird issue for sure. Given how many people love this cassette I would contact E13 and see if they can sort you out and figure out the issue. I heard the US support is great. My friends and I have been on them for over a year with no issues at all! This cassette has been MUCH better than the XT cassette or clunky Sunrace Ive tried. PB even nominated it for component of the year, so I think people having no issues far outweigh anyone having problems. Hope you get it figured out!

Great review. Me and my friends are all riding the TRS+ cassette and can't say enough great things about it. Shifts better than the XT 11 speed cassette, has more range and is much lighter. It cost a bit more for sure but for me that's worth it!
