Rated 5 out of 5 by Toni89 Great Value
I'm on my 2nd 980 cassette and i like them mostly because of their value for money.
It's light and shifts are nice and positive, i just wish it had a bit longer lifespan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pavelol Кассета на пауке с 3 звездами
обратите внимание что "паук" держит только 3 звезды.
брал эту кассету вместе с системой Shimano deore 590. цепь
советую 991 Sram
На мой взгляд кассета быстро стачивается, то есть могла бы быть вынослевее. хотя когда я её покупал она стоит 66$ сейчас цена упала. наверняка по этой причине.
p.s использую 3 цепи, меняя их каждые 500 км. , сейчас пробег более 5000, все работает, но не достаточно мягко переключает (Deore XT) и проблема явно в кассете.
так что если вы ездите много - подбирайте другую кассету

Bonne cassette mieux qu'une XT en fluidité seul petit bémol pour le nettoyage les quatres pignons dépendants ne facilite pas la tache

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Don't use this with a hope alloy freehub
I bought one of these cassettes and fitted with a new chain approximately 6 months ago. Within a couple of rides I noticed that the cassette was rattling slightly and on removing it noticed that it had dug some large gouges into the alloy casstte body on my hope hub.
Now I agree that an alloy cassette body isn't the best idea, but the design of this cassette (plastic spacers between the rings) means that there is only a very small contact area between cassette and freehub. The freehub damage would not have occurred to anywhere near the same extent with a cassette where the majority of the larger sprockets are in a one piece unit, like the shimano cassetes.
Secondly, after 6 months use the middle four rings of the cassette were completely worn out. The cassette was only used through spring and summer and i rode fewer miles than usual over this time - I have got four chains worth (2 years) out of cheap shimano cassettes in the past with the same frequency of chain replacement.
So overall a disappointment. Maybe worth it if you're a racer and saving 100g is worth £20 over a basic unit and you're very tight on you're service intervals. And you don't have a hope hub...
Back to cheap shimano ones for me... does exactly what it says on the tin!

Light weight. Works great. The 11-34 is perfect for 29ers or a 1 x 9 (or 2 x 9) set up. An excellent value for 57 euros.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous not much good
i had a 990 before this so i thought i would try this one. it was rubbish the shifting was slow and it only lasted a couple of rides then it started to jump. i put a new chain on when it fitted the cassette. buy a xt much better and last 4 times longer
