The 10-48 XD cassette has caught my eye. Wonder how it would get along with Shimano M8000 GS rear derailluer?

I'm sure their 10-46XD cassette would work just fine... 10-48 would be awesome with a 32T front on a heavy, long travel 29er.

Selling - I have a Garbaruk 10-48, XD, black with their derailleur cage. Only 30 miles. Ordered it a while ago, but arrived last week. Needless to say excellent condition. Also have XX1 chain with 15 miles. Works excellent, but am going to 50t now.

This is how the 11/50 cassette shifts, with a standard Sram GX1 derailleur.


I will post another video with the new 10/50 soon.
Wow, so if I am reading the comments right the GX 11 speed derailleur works just fine without their extender?

I asked them about this and they said the new cage just works better.

Copy that. Reading Tskubi's responses in the YouTube comments he seems to be running the stock cage. I may try that route first since I already have a GX derailleur.

I still think the best combo of perfect shifting is Sram XG-1195 X01 11 cassette with Shimano XTR shifter and XTR Derailure. You get 2 years out of this cassette, and shifting is so smooth!! 1x11 all the way!

I'll trade you a set of NIB Giro Empire VR90, Blue, size 41.

My wife has forbidden bike purchases without her approval. But not trades.

I was about to order the Shimano hub version of the 11-50 this morning. Out of curiosity I just googled 11-50 cassette only to see Sunrace makes one as well. While it is heavier, it is also half the price AND comes with a derailleur link. Although they claim med and long cages will work on the cassette and the link is only needed for short cages, I'll still have it to test if the shifting feels clunky.

Best case, I just saved 150$. Worst case, I will hate it and buy the Garbaruk anyways. I have enjoyed my Sunrace 11-46 so I have to believe this one will perform similarly.

The 50t on the Sunrace is a little flexy. So I only sit and spin in that gear. It's not a bad. I used a goat link with a Medium cage. Shifts better than without. Hoping the Garburk shift's better.
Finally got mine mounted up and pedaled around the yard. Shifting seems super smooth with stock GX derailer. Going for a good ride tomorrow to for a good shakedown test.

Just installed the Garbaruk 1048 XD cassette with XTR MD-9000 (GS medium cage). Works with no problem, the B screw just a bit more in, and adjusting the top stop a bit. Exactly 315 grams. I ordered the Garbaruk Cage mod at the same time (it is an extra $20 or so) just to be on the safe side ... I guess it might be on sale now!
