Yes, it is an SLX (or SPX) tube set, but the steerer has nothing to do with that, all Columbus steerer tubes are ridged and have been for a long time.

The Columbus fork steerer have had the helical ridges (a misnomer to say "rifling") since at least the 1950's, way before there was an SLX tube set, it is not an SLX steerer.
