Description

Description

Regardless of the terrain you ride on, changing gears will feel smooth with the Shimano XT M8000 cassette. The cassette has an efficient power transfer, is very dynamic and is reliable even on the roughest trails.

Technology

Accurate and comfortable shifting thanks to smaller transitions between different gears
This cassette is ground with precision and has been fitted with chain lines to allow the chain to smoothly change gears. . This can be seen in some of the teeth, which are partially ground down. This sharpening gives better shifting for both 1x11, 2x11 and a 3x11 drivetrain.

More sustainable thanks to steel sprockets
The cassette is made of an aluminium spider with sprockets made of steel. This makes the cassette both lightweight and very durable. This means that the cassette will survive many a muddy ride in the forest and will give you the best possible support!

Gear ratios
This Shimano Deore XT M8000 cassette is available in three versions with wide gearing, where the 11-46 is especially made for 1x cranksets.
11-40: 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 24, 27, 31, 35, 40
11-42: 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 24, 28, 32, 37, 42
11-46: 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 24, 28, 32, 37, 46

Compatibility

Note:
11/46 should not be used in combination with a double/triple, but is specifically made for a single chainring.

Assembly

Mounting with special tools
To assemble and disassemble this cassette you will need specific cassette tools. These can be found here.

Don't forget the assembly grease!
The lockring on your cassette should be tightened up, in most cases up to 40Nm. To be able to loosen the cassette, we recommend you to apply a little bit of assembly paste to the lockring. Our assembly greases can be found here.

User tips

How often should I clean my bike? Regular cleaning ensures that your material lasts longer and that you can enjoy your cycling for longer. How often you need to clean depends on the weather conditions in which you ride. Do you cycle through all kinds of weather, or do you only go out when the sun is shining? It all affects the degree of wear and tear and some people will have to clean their bikes more often than others. Use the schedule below as a guide:

October to March:
• Clean every 200 km
• Rinse after every ride
• Dry and oil the chain after every ride
• Leave the bike to dry at room temperature

April to September:
• Clean every 300 km
• Rinse off after cycling in the rain
• Dry and oil the chain after polishing or rinsing
• Leave the bike to dry at room temperature

Reliable Shimano kit that works as it should.

- Angus 20 May 2021

Like-for-like replacement in a complete Shimano drive train. Chain shifts reliably going up or down the cassette in the dry and in the mud.

Pros & Cons

42 tooth bail out gear for 2x set up
Shimano reliability
Well spaced ratios

5 / 5

- Nick 31 August 2020

light , beautifully engineered and well designed giving crisp reliable gear changes

5 / 5

Another great Shimano cassette

- Tom 30 August 2018

Straight replacement for the 11-40 I had before as the shifting is so good. I use it with a double (still!) as I like to have a slightly broader range of gears form my general riding. I could have run a single 11-45 but then the ratios would be too spaced for me.
