Sram/Shimano 12spd compatibility


Recommended Posts

Hi guys


I have XO1 on my bike and my cassette needs to be replaced soon. Sunrace wears too quickly and even E13 is still a bit steep in price. To save maintenance costs I want to change to a SLX cassette. Rear hub is Rapide and can easily be changed to Microspline.


I’ve read that the shifting ratios are the same, but that the chains are different. I’ve got a Rapide chainring. What chain would work best? Would a Sram/KMC not work so well on the Shimano cassette? Is a Shimano chain and Rapide chainring compatible?

Everything you have should be compatible, I've been running Shimano cassettes with SRAM chains and shifters for a while and never experienced any issues.


Rapide chainrings are great and run week with both SRAM and Shimano cassettes
