  1. Packed with 11 gears of fun, this cassette features a combination of aluminum and steel cogs to keep weight down while staying tough enough to handle all the torque you can throw at it.
  2. While the XT cassette holds onto a little bit of extra weight compared to its XTR sibling, the CS-M8000 stands out as a perfect choice for riders looking for top-level quality at a more affordable price point.
  3. Shimano engineers this cassette with rhythm step gear progression, ensuring precise shifting every time to eliminate pesky distractions such as ghost or missed shifts out on the mountain.
  4. Both the 11-40t and 11-42t options feature a wide cassette sprocket and optimized gear steps to move the chain smoothly across their ranges and get you smoothly across varied terrain.
  5. The system works great, and the cassette gives me the ability to use my preferred pedal cadence throughout its gear range.
  6. At 71 yrs young, I was afraid I wouldn’t have the legs to spin anything higher than a 46 tooth for climbing.
  7. I was wrong, and should have gotten the 44 or 42 tooth.
  8. But with a 33 tooth crank ring the gearing is just right.
  9. The XT system is fantastic and easy to install and care for.
  10. The 40/40 was very handy on extremely steep climbs of North Texas gravel races.
  11. I got the 11-46t version of this M8000 and it’s perfectly compatible.
  12. I was lucky my bike came with the longer SGS cage on the derailleur or it might not have been so simple though.
  13. If you’re looking at the SRAM Eagle drivetrain with lust, but can’t afford it, this cassette might be your best budget option.
  14. If the lingo I used in this review reads like a foreign language, then you should probably do some more research before buying this product.
  15. Added it to my cyclocross bike, using Shimano Ultegra RD-6800 and a goatlink ([…]).
  16. Shifts through all the gears smoothly and I now can take my bike off-road on steep hills and still access all the gears to ride fast during ascents.
