    Wheel fast.

    Shift smoothly across everything from steep, rock-strewn trails to smooth-buffed XC loops with the Shimano XT CS-M8000 Cassette.

Rhythm step gear progression ensures precise shifting without annoying ghost shifts on the trail. The wide range of available gears saves your knees from undue stress on lung-busting climbs, available in 11-40T, 11-42T, or 11-46T versions to suit your riding style and local terrain.

    Really great option for my gravel bike

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This works with the longer cage Ultegra derailleur no problem. Totally saved me on a gravel fondo with 6k of steep climbs.

    Shimano Junk

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Bought this just shy of a year ago. the 2 largest cogs are SHOT. who ever thought aluminum was a good material for cassette cogs is an idiot and Shimano warranty claims this is just normal wear. DO NOT BUY THIS CASSETTE. you have been warned.

    Classic, Tried and True

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Probably one of the best cost to effectiveness options on the market for your bike, the xt m8000 has been a no-nonsense option that's worked for 1000's of miles in the Wasatch on a number of different bikes. 12 speed is nice, but 1x11 gets the job done with a little more leg power. Although not the lightest, this setup is highly versatile and an easy choice for someone looking for a decent new cassette.

    11 Speed Isn't Dead

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I am slowly upgrading my mountain bike as parts wear out and when it was time to replace my SLX cassette I made the natural move to XT. Saving some grams is always nice on an XC mountain bike or any bike for that matter. Shimano XT is the way to go for a 1x11 setup. Affordable, durable, and lightweight!

    Best bang for the buck upgrade

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This wide-range cassette is perfect if you are looking for an inexpensive 1x11 upgrade. I have these on 2 of my bikes and I love the wide range for my single ring up front. If you are looking to upgrade your drivetrain to 1x11this is the best bang for the buck.

    11 Gear of Fun

      XT is the gold standard for Shimano MTN bike parts and this cassette fits perfectly into that standard. I bought this because my old one just had too many watts on it... over 3000 miles of dirt covered brutality in it. New chain and a new cassette = brand new bike feel!

      Good Casette

        Paired with mine shimano xt di2 derailleur, this cassette is buttery smooth throughout all gears with regular chain maintenance. I would say this cassette is a close second behind sram's eagle drive train.

        Best around

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        11-46? HUGE RANGE
        HG freehub? NO PROPRIETARY HUB!
        Classic stylings, great range, and reasonable pricing for a fantastic piece of componentry.

        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.

        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.
