Finally, this one goes to 11, too.
Shimano's all-new XTR groupset sees a swarm of huge refinements descend upon the legendary groupset, and one of the stars of the new show is the Shimano XTR CS-M9000 11-speed Cassette. The cassette features an intricate, computer-designed layout of its teeth and shift gates, because Shimano understands that smooth shifting is key to maintaining your rhythm on the trail. Four separate carbon fiber carriers support 11 nickel-plated cogs spread between 11 and 40 teeth. The 35, 31, 27, 24, 21, and 19 cogs are made of titanium to reduce weight and increase durability, and all 11 cogs are heavily machined and drilled to minimize grams without compromising rigidity.
The Shimano XTR CS-M9000 11-speed Cassette is available in only one size (11-40t) and one finish, and Shimano very strongly advises using its 11-speed specific SIL-TEC chain for best performance.
