    Wide range 11sp cassette options for XD driver?

    I have an 11sp with XD driver, and need a shorter gear than the stock 42T. Does anyone make a 10-46, or 11-46 other than E13, which fits this?

    Just checking, but is a different chainring an option? Seems the simpler solution, unless you'd then miss out on having that top-speed ratio...

    Not an option, I am already on the smallest ring available for my crank (26t). This is for a fat bike with a lot of deep snow climbing. It's probably impossible to have a gear which is too low!

    The 44-tooth replacement cog from Wolftooth (among others) is a pretty decent option.

    Yes, I have the 46t version and it works great, very smooth shifts. It's a solid option if you already have an XX1 or X01 cassette. Otherwise not such a great deal since you need a $300 cassette to use it.

    Hope does. Seems pretty reasonable considering price point. Has me thinking about one now.

    I believe Hope requires a unique freehub

    Their XD driver? Or their driver and their hub? That could be a deal breaker if you already had a wheel not looking to build one up I guess. :/

    I have a Surly hub, which from my research has a Formula freehub. Trying to find one of these Shimano splined so I have more cassette options. I'd be perfectly fine with a Sunrace 11-46 for $60.

    Weight is pretty meaningless on a 35# fatty.

    Thank you all for your replies.

    The Hope cassette requires a Hope hub and a proprietary driver. It is not a XD driver.

    Ok. Yeah I inquired about that above. Thanks for the beta. So where does that setup fit in to the budget of a wheel build/change?

    You buy a Hope hub with the Hope driver ( or buy a Hope hub with either a Shimano or XD driver and buy the Hope driver separate) and a Hope cassette

    The cassette is very light and works well.

    But it is a proprietary driver and cassette....and the aluminum cogs can wear in extreme conditions.

    Most of my wheels have Hope hubs...and I have both the Hope and Shimano drivers.
    During the winter, where I end up with lots of frozen mud sticking to the drivetrain...I run a Sunrace or Shimano cassette, and runt he Hope cassettes in the summer

    Could your hub be a Novatec? They are also commonly used for branded hubs such as Surly. If so, the freehubs are replaceable and available here:

    Sunrace has 11-50 11spd, but these use Shimano Free hub bodies.

    They do not seem to have a 10-50 11speed.

    I am fine with 11-46. It appears it's now a free hub issue, to find a Shimano one for this rear hub.

    If you haven't found it already, this google spreadsheet is a great summary of cassette options:
