Manufactured using high-quality chromoly steel alloy coupled with the strongest possible aluminum largest cog – this product is an ultimate solution for all riders out there who are looking for efficient way to enhance the performance of their MTB or road/CX bike

While designing our 11-speed cassette for Shimano freehub, we’ve gone for a no-compromise solution: we machined a heat-treated monoblock cassette out of steel with only largest cog made out of aluminum. This allows for the best possible durability and rigidity while you’re pushing your bike to the limit

Recommended drivetrain setups


11-46T cassette with 11-speed Shimano rear derailleur: Garbaruk RD cage is optional, may be coupled with Garbaruk oversized derailleur pulleys
11-48/50T cassette with 11-speed Shimano rear derailleur: Garbaruk RD cage is required for optimal performance, may be coupled with Garbaruk oversized derailleur pulleys



Rear derailleur compatibility note

Garbaruk recommends using 11-speed Shimano-compatible cassette with the following Shimano rear derailleur models: RD-M7000-11 (SLX), RD-M8000/M8050 (XT/XT Di2), RD-M9000/9050 (XTR/XTR Di2). However, in case you would like to use it with SRAM 11-speed MTB rear derailleur, this setup will also work well

Road freehubs compatibility note

Our cassette has initially been designed to work seamlessly when mounted on Shimano MTB free hubs. However, for those of you how want to install Garbaruk Shimano-compatible 11-speed cassette onto a Road freehub, we offer Garbaruk Cassette Spacer that helps secure the cassette in place on wider Road free hubs
