SHIMANO XT cassette 12-speed CS-M8100 | 10-51 teeth
Shimano follows suit and also relies on a 12-speed drive for the XT M8100 group. In contrast to the competition, however, the Japanese let the biker choose whether he prefers a maximum range (10-51 teeth) or a narrower geared cassette with lower cadence jumps when shifting (10-45 teeth). The former particularly appeals to riders who want to pedal long and steep climbs with high pedaling frequencies.
Smooth and precise shifting has always been a hallmark of Shimano cassettes. With the Hyperglide cassettes of the last generation, the sprockets were placed in such a way that the chain runs extremely smoothly and with little vibration, especially when switching to a larger sprocket. With the XT M8100 cassette, Shimano introduces Hyperglide+. Thanks to this technology, the shifting processes are now just as smooth when shifting into a heavier gear and are 1/3 faster compared to the CS-M8000 cassette.
When constructing the cassette, Shimano relies on a material mix of steel and aluminum for the sprockets. While the ten small sprockets with the lowest chain wrap and highest load are made of steel, the two large sprockets are made of aluminum. This load-dependent use of material leads to even wear of the cassette and also extends the service life of the chain. The cassette is held together by an aluminum spider.

SHIMANO XT chain CN-M8100 12-speed | 126 links with chain lock
The CN-M8100 chain is specially designed for the M8100 chainrings and cassettes. The chain harmonises perfectly with the Dynamic Chain Engagement+ (DCE+) Narrow-Wide tooth profiles of the new Deore XT chainrings thanks to the millings on the inside of the link plates. The design results in a tighter fit of the chain on the teeth. Vibrations are avoided and the smoother running of the chain is not only noticeable when pedaling, but is also expressed acoustically through a quieter drive. Thanks to a new chromed surface in combination with the proven SIL-TEC coating, the service life of the chain could be kept at the level of the M8000 chain, despite the smaller outer width.
