Description

Garbaruk Cassettes have been a welcome change to those wanting a quality cassette without having to fork out for the higher priced options. With a light weight and smooth shifting across a wide range of gears they tick every box. Machined from hardened steel with  one-piece construction, they are robust enough to offer a similar lifespan to their competitors. The largest cog for each cassette is also available in different colours to accent your setup. These cassettes are for those with an XD Driver.

Do you have 50 tooth envy? Well, that is now a thing of the past with the awesome Garbaruk 11 Speed 10-50T Cassette. No more dreaming of that ultra climbing 50T option for an 11-speed setup. This will get you up those hills easier and with the option to bling out that 50T ring in red, black or chrome.

Note: Garbaruk have made a running change with these cassettes and they no longer require a proprietary lock ring or lock ring tool for installation. The cassette will come with the lock ring included and can be installed with a standard cassette lock ring tool.

A worthy replacement

by

I bought one of these after breaking teeth on two GX cassettes and needed some extra range. Worked so well that I bought a second for my wife's bike after her five year old X01 cassette wore out. Went straight to the Garbaruk cage with it. Fits just like a SRAM XD cassette. The machining is beautiful and this thing is LIGHT. It has been trickier to set up on wife's Fuel EX than my Horst link bike, where everything shifts smoothly although it makes the occasional BANG when shifting. The extra range is excellent and the shifting is pretty smooth, similar to the GX cassette it replaced.

A decent option

As a long time Shimano user, I recently bought some secondhand wheels fitted with and XD driver. This cassette gave me a better range without having to swap to 12 speed. The cassette looks great when fitted and works really well. Shifting's not quite as smooth as with a Shimano cassette and there are a couple of shifts that are still a bit funky, but it's close enough not to be an issue and will hopefully settle in with a bit more riding (only 50 km on so far)

Self Cleaning...awesome

I thought about an update on my review back in Nov 2019
After riding with this Garbaruk cassette for a couple of months now I have realised that the one piece construction enables this cassette to almost self-clean! As the rings on a SRAM or shimano are layered on each other this unit is hollow in the centre, so it allows build-up of grime and dirt to fall out of the cassette...fantastic
should make my chains last longer as well.
And I am loving the lower gear.. 48, lets me conquer more climbs

Finicky but worth the effort

by

Required a lot of patience to install without stripping the thread. Have to hold the cassette with your hand while slowly slowly tightening and ensuring that the driver splines line up with the slots in the cassette otherwise it spins out of position and jams.

After installation, chain length is critical. Use the images in the instruction leaflet as a template for the angle of the derailleur cage in the biggest and smallest cogs. Set the B limit screw.

With careful installation, correct chain length and some time taken to set the limits of my derailleur properly, this cassette is a dream. Shifts extremely well. If yours doesn't, you haven't read the instructions. RTFM.

Better $/gram ratio than just about any other cassette and almost as rangey as Eagle!

Great option

by

I ordered this Garbaruk cassette because sram didn't have the wide ratios that I was looking for. I was impressed with the weight saving of 30% compared with my old sram unit as this Garbaruk unit is really lightweight, I'll see how long this cassette lasts,but it does look well made, it fitted easily and so far I really like the gear spacings

Awesome!!!!!

Just bought the XD driver 11-46, had gx eagle 11-42, this cassette is magic! First noticed how smooth it is in operation and you cant hear it at all! You feel like the chain fell off. The ratios are just what the doctor ordered too. I have shimano xt on my other bike and I will be changing to Garbaruk on that bike too!
