In order to get good OEM saturation with SLX I think they’ll need to open up the microspline license to the big Far East hub vendors (Joytech/Novatec, KT, Formula, etc). Most product managers will likely bulk at OTP options from DT and Mavic wheels eating up precious dollars on SLX-level bikes. I don’t think Shimano cup-n-cone microspline hub options will cut the mustard either, regardless of price. Interesting times!
