Hello everyone, I recently got a Scott Big Jon 2017, it comes with a 2x10 drivetrain and I`m looking to upgrade it to 1x11.
The rear mech is a SLX RD-M7000-10-SGS, and on Shimano`s website here:
Shimano introduces totally redesigned SLX M7000 mountain components
it is mentioned that it is 3x11 compatible, but it seems to have been a typo, since anywhere else I look, the derailleur is listed as 10 speed and there`s no mention of it being 11 speed compatible.
So is it really a typo on Shimano`s website or I`ll be able to use that derailleur with an 11 speed cassete, chain and shifters?
I haven't checked, but are there multiple versions of the M7000 RD?

You're turning black metallic.
M7000 is the 11 speed version. The 10 speed version would be a 700 number.
It looks from Shimano's product info that the GS is 11-speed and the SGS is 10-speed, see link below.

GS is a mid cage and SGS is long cage.

The pull ratio is the same so I agree, BUT look at the Shimano link I posted. It clearly states rear speeds 10 on the SGS and 11 on the GS. The name is also RD-M7000-10-SGS and it looks to be more like the older models construction and may need a Goatlink to properly shift up to the 42T.
Well I ended up getting an XT M8000 rear mech as I`m moving the Scott`s 10 speed transmission to my commuter to replace it`s old 9 speed Deore.
Haven`t had the chance to ride it yet, but the ride back from the LBS felt good.

That's a great rear derailleur, I have it on almost all of my bikes, some 10-speed some 11-speed. As above the pull ratio is the same so it works great on 10-speed too. I have not tried the 46t, the 42T is enough for the trails I ride however I may look into it and then up my front chainring 2 teeth. Sounds like you made a good choice.
