Please note: all of our bike models come with an EU standard brake setup. This will need to be reversed to comply with UK cycling standards.
The new XT components set a completely new quality standard in the MTB sector. Powerful for efficient power transmission and fast responding braking force. Dynamic with "Rider Tuned" 11-speed transmission combinations for outstanding performance. Robust and reliable even on the roughest trails.
The new hydraulic 4-piston disc brakes fit seamlessly into the Deore XT component lineup. They have been designed to allow aggressive driving even in the most demanding terrain while providing safety reserves. The new stoppers use Shimano's Iice-Tech heat management system to design the calipers, compatible discs and pads.
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 a short lever travel. After the brake pad has been applied, the power transmission factor increases rapidly. This means that the greater part of the lever travel is still available to increase the braking force and to control it more precisely.
The XT levers are compatible with the I-Spec II system, which allows the shift and brake levers to be mounted on the handlebars with just one clamp, giving more freedom in cockpit design, saving weight and improving ergonomics with a wide range of adjustment options. Easy to assemble with narrow brake lever clamp. More space on the handlebars and a tidy look.
One-Way Ventilation is designed to quickly and easily prevent air from entering the hydraulic system. Shimano has optimized the routing of the brake fluid throughout the system to prevent air bubbles from trapping in the system. The brake fluid's one-way path, together with the funnel for filling the mineral oil, allows clean, trouble-free bleeding.
