    XT CS-M8000 Cassette

    Shift smoothly across everything from steep, rock-strewn trails to smooth-buffed XC loops with the Shimano XT CS-M8000 Cassette. Whether you're overhauling your trail bike's chewed-up cassette or converting to a 1x11 drivetrain, this 11-speed cassette shaves precious grams while standing up to abuse on the trail with its mixture of lightweight aluminum and robust steel cogs. 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.

    • A cassette that solves the budget vs bling conundrum
    • Blend of aluminum and steel cogs sheds weight where possible
    • Gearing increments ensure you've always got the right gear
    • Compatible with Shimano or SRAM 11-speed drivetrains

    can't go wrong with M-8000

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I use this cassette on my gravel bike with a 36t front chainring. Climbing is a breeze. Still going strong after 500 miles.

    Upgraded from NX eagle to this 😍

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I upgraded from NX Eagle 12-speed because it came stock on my Epic EVO... but a real bike should not have a cassette that weighs ~1.5 pounds (WTF SRAM?!). Didn't want to upgrade my free hubs from Shimano > SRAM and decided to swap the NX Eagle for Shimano XT. This was my cassette of choice and have put ~ 500 miles on it on trail and it still looks almost like-new. No broken teeth and the smaller cogs still are in great shape. Shifts really well and the range is great. I ride the 11x46 and just ordered another one for backup when this one eventually gets worn out. Highly recommend, especially if your bike came with some NX Eagle steel plates on it πŸ™„

    Awesome! Survived the 2019 Ice/mud man!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    High quality, perfect fit with my Pivot Mach 4. Survived to an Iceman in not very great conditions with mud, snow, sand, and gravel.
    I had some issues with my payment and I really needed it to be on time for Iceman, thankfully the assistants from Competitive Cyclist helped me with fast shipping (2 business days) and it was ready to train before Iceman.
    Thank you very much!

    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.

    XT works fine

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    No need to run XTR...XT works great, lasts long, shifts perfectly. Best to pair Shimano cassettes with Shimano chain...just my opinion.


      With the exception of cassettes I usually use sram. I put this on my double duty cross/gravel bike. It works like it is supposed to. Clean shifts!

      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.

          Gift For the Homie

          • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

          Got it for a friend and he says it does all he wanted it to do.

          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.

          Good Cassette

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I like this cassette. Works good in all gears.

          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.

          Well Priced

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Great durability and very well priced.

          I've used XT Cassettes for years

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I'm never disappointed with these components.
