    11 speed XD options?

    Looking into upgrading my wife's GX 11 speed (XD driver) cassette to one that has a larger range, something like 11-46. However, I have been largely disappointed with my search results...Nothing. Being a Shimano guy myself I don't know much about Sram compatibility.

    Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Garbaruk comes to mind - select the 10-46t option in the dropdown box.

    Do you mean 10-46? Because an 11-46 has LESS range than a “standard” XD 11s, 10-42 cassette.

    Sorry, more specifically higher low speed range. My apologies.

    Wow. Thanks for that suggestion. Any economic options that you're aware of?

    Yeah, this offering by SunRace that I heard of from another thread:
    I couldn’t find it on the subrace page, so I linked to the CRC page instead for reference, although it’s out of stock..

    Info came from this thread btw:

    ^^^right. If she manly wants a lower gear, a smaller ring is usually the best option.
    Do the math.

    I was running an E*thirteen 9-46. Great range but the shifting seemed better w/ the Sram cassette. Went back to the Sram cassette and a 30t elliptical front ring.
