The new XT components set a completely new quality standard in the MTB sector.
Powerful for efficient power transmission and responsive braking power. Dynamic with "Rider Tuned" 11-speed translation combinations for outstanding performance. Robust and reliable even on the roughest trails.The new hydraulic 4-piston disc brakes fit seamlessly into the line-up of the Deore XT component group. They were developed to enable an aggressive riding style even in the most demanding terrain and at the same time provide safety reserves. The new stoppers use Shimano's Ice-Tech heat management system, which is used to design the brake calipers, compatible brake discs and pads.
Servo-Wave The Servo-Wave brake lever takes up a lot of braking distance at the beginning of its movement so that the pads can be guided to the brake disc with little lever travel. An elegant appearance and high-quality technologies distinguish Shimano's new SLX. The greater part of the lever travel is thus still available to increase the braking force and to dose it more precisely.
