Shimano XT (Deore XT)
In 1982, its year of introduction, the Shimano XT
was the first dedicated mountain bike group – since then it has assured
its top league position among mountain bike parts
. Above it there's only the
group which offers even more performance.
Current XT derailleur shifting systems offer 10-speeds on the rear for mountain bike and
use. The trekking version has a crankset with
and an optional chainguard.
Revolutionary is the new Dyna-Sys system found on Shimano XT
components. This concept offers
gear ratios with minimum steps. An optional 11-36 T. cassette widens this range even more.
