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 thermal management system, which is used to design the calipers, compatible brake discs and pads.
The servo-wave brake lever takes up a lot of braking distance at the beginning of its movement so that the linings can be guided to the brake disc with little lever travel. An elegant appearance and high-quality technologies distinguish Shimano's new SLX. The brand-new mid-range group offers countless of the performance features that already distinguish its "big sister", the Deore XT, and combines them with an excellent price-performance ratio, extreme robustness and comprehensive versatility.
