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 Shimano XTR group which offers even more performance.
Current XT derailleur shifting systems offer 10-speeds on the rear for mountain bike and trekking bike use. The trekking version has a crankset with larger chainrings 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.
