The new DEORE XT M8100 series includes features such as Shimano’s groundbreaking 12-speed MICRO SPLINE cassette sprockets with either a 10-45T or 10-51T range, 1x12 or 2x12 HOLLOWTECH II cranksets, powerful 2-piston or 4-piston brakes, fully adjustable ISPEC-EV shifters, 12-speed precision-shifting front and rear derailleurs, rapidly cooling ICE TECHNOLOGIES FREEZA rotors and complete XC or Enduro wheelsets, all perfected for today’s mountain bikers.
Building on the experiences of the world’s best mountain bike racers, Shimano has brought its race-winning technology to competitive and enthusiastic mountain bike riders.
The new DEORE XT M8100 series, the latest iteration of the original MTB groupset, continues its legacy with high performance features for today’s demanding and adventurous mountain bikers.
The XT BR-M8100 hydraulic 2-piston disc brake with 2-finger brake lever from Shimano fits seamlessly into the line-up of the new XT M8100 component group. Higher braking force with less effort on the fingers and extremely linear response to the lever movement. This new design of the brake lever, which is mounted at an angle to provide two points of support on the handlebars, significantly increasing stiffness, provides more direct feedback and braking performance, which is further enhanced by SERVO WAVE technology. The braking systems are therefore characterized by faster response, higher performance and shorter empty travel.
