    Great Product - Perfectly priced!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Decided to upgrade from a 10spd to 11spd. Thought about saving a few $ and going with the SLX cassette. But, based on the price difference, I figured might as well pay the little extra. Happy I did. a Buddy of mine purchased the SLX blend ripley and converted to the M8000 rear derailleur at the same time I went m8000 full rear (xtr shifter). There is a noticable difference in how smooth the shift quality is on my bike vs his now. He went so far as to ride my bike, feel the difference, then come back to comp cyclist and purchase the XT cassette.

    Shimano value and quality-thumbs up

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The shear volume of great reviews on the XT lineup speaks for itself. I'm running an XT 1x11 (46t) drivetrain and love it. Yes, there is a pretty large jump between the 37t and 46t granny gear but its nothing that's gonna ruin your ride. The 46t cassette I bought is the most cost effective drivetrain upgrade out there. You can retrofit your 10spd HG freehubed bike into an 11 spd 1x gear monster with just a shifter, cassette and chainring...that's all you need. Yes, there are prettier, shinier, more goldier cassette options out there, but for shear bang-for-the-buck upgrades, nothing beats the XT drivetrain. Good stuff to get your goods going.

    Good but cheap 1X11 solution

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is great solution for anyone who wants a good but cheap 1X11 solution. Shimano cassette is made of great materials/construction, crisp, and effortless shifts. This cassette it does the job well, like shimano XT components typically do.

    The Workhorse Groupset

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I think that the XT groupset is one of the best you can buy at this point. They are fairly light, very reliable, and will last forever. Not to mention, it's super affordable! Easy to install and also really easy to maintain. Might not be the ultra light race set up you want, but is just flat out reliable.

    Best Cassette for my Bike

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This was the best thing I could have done for my Surly Krampus. The stock 1 x 10 was tough to use for climbing. When I switched to 1 x 11 it helped tremendously for climbing and extended the amount of time I could spend on my bike. There is just barely enough clearance with my plus sized tires (29 x 3). The bike Gearheads really helped me in getting the right set up. Consulting them before buying may really save you a lot of time and frustration for your next set up.

    That's a big cog you got there.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Who would have thought that one day the large cog would be bigger than your brake rotor. I was skeptical of 1x for a long time but riding it on a long bikepack in Baja made me a believer. The jumps between gears are a bit big in some cases but the shifting is smooth and the low end gearing is great for hauling a loaded bike up long mountain passes

    the gearing you've always wanted

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought my wife the 11-46 because she excels at downhill riding far more than the uphill stuff. Now she can climb anything. Compatibility questions? Hit me up at adickinson@backcountry.com

    11-46 has big jump on the low end...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    See my prior review...love shimano stuff...it just works. That said, the 11-46 leaves me a little puzzled. Bought it for a new bikepacking rig set up 1x--that is, a bike I'm going to lash a bunch of stuff too, up to 20lbs of water at a time and go ride singletrack for a few days on end... As such, I'll spend a fair amount of time twiddling between climbing gears and I find myself missing a 42ish gear... The 46 bailout is great. But the next step is 37. For regular mountaing biking or flatlanders wanting a bailout gear, this is probably great as it maintains a nice spread across all the other 10 gears. But for my intended use in the rocky mountain west, I could ditch the 11t in exchange for more choices for climbing.

    SWEET!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I really like this Shimano 11 speed i bought two cassette one XT 11-46 for my Warden and SLX 11-42 for my other bike to upgrade from 10 speed.. Instead i modify the 11-46. disassemble 11-42 and added the 42 teeth to 11-46 .. 'Just for fun' and so far so good cassette is working just fine...

    SWEET!

    Great cassette

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Love the upgrade to 11 speed, and this helped complete the setup. Nothing too exciting about a cassette, but this one does its job well, and doesn't require changing out the freehub body

    1 X 11 Upgrade

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have been making my own 1 x 10 systems for a few years now with XT cassettes and a wolf tooth 42t. Finally decided to upgrade to a 1 x 11 system using the XT 46t.



    The Shimano XT systems never fail. You may add a few grams of weight over the XTR, but for half the price you can't go wrong with XT. The entire XT product line is bullet proof.

    1 X 11 Upgrade

    Excelent price-quality-durability ratio

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I´ve been using a mix of Shimano 1X11 for 3000 Km (Rear derailleur and shifter XTR M9000, Crank, Chain and Cassette 11-42 XT M8000) and it has working flawlessly, shifting is smooth and quick, even under load on step climbs, So now that my cassette is coming to the end of its life I will stick with this mix. Now shimano relases the 11-46 cassette, I would love to purchase one on this range to increase the number of teeth in my front chainring and gain speed, but would the 11-46 work with XTR RD-M9000 Medium Cage Rear shifter?

    The large cage is for 2x and 3x front sprockets where more chain length is needed and the longer cage is used to soak up some of that extra length of chain. I just purchased the 46t set up and the medium cage.

    When will you have the 11-46 ready to ship? I'm ready!

    Hey Dusty! Looks like the estimated arrival time for first shipment of the 11-46 to get in is 8/09! If you or anyone else has any questions on it or would like any help placing an order feel free to reach out to me! Cheers, Connor

    If I currently have a rear hub running a 10 speed shimano cassette, will that hub be able to run this 11?

    Yes, shimano 11 speed cassette fits on the same free hub body as 10 speed. SRAM 11 speed needs a new free hub body. I am currently using the same hub for shimano 11 speed as my old 8, 9, & 10 speed cassettes. One of the benefits of the shimano design vs. SRAM.
