The Special Blend builds pretty much take up the SLX build kit, but it is a bit surprising that XTR is gone. OTOH, I would probably never opt for an XTR build anyway, given that XT builds are just a little more robust w/o adding much extra weight. I would take an XT build with carbon rims over the full XTR build for price/performance bang for the buck.
