    New question here. XT rear disc hub: 2 pawls or 3 pawls?

    I was under the impression that XT disc hub has 2 pawls with 16 engagement points. True? However, I ran into XT hub description from an on-line bike shop stating that it has 3 pawls. Is this typo or did Shimano make a change on their latest model?

    Here's one...

    Here's one I found but this one says new XT m756 has 4 pawls.

    Is this typo or retailors who are selling them don't have a clue. It would be nice if new XT hub does have 4 pawls. Wishful thingking I guess...$50 hub with 3 or 4 pawls.

    SingleTrackHound,

    Interesting.... I received my information directly from Shimano so i'm pretty sure my response is correct.
    Having 4 pawls on a XT would be awsome hey!

    I am not very smart but I think Shimano knows little more about their stuff than Beyondbike. Crazy thing is I read somehwere else, too, mentioning 3 pawls on XT. Can't find that one...

    I know one thing for sure, if Shimano's new XT has 4 pawls, CK will be out of business soon.
