Following mountain biking's evolutionary path, Shimano DEORE XT M8000 delivers the 11-speed features and premium performance found on the top-of-the-range XTR-level components, elevating the performance of enduro and cross country riders on demanding trails or race circuits. Now 11-speed, new DEORE XT M8000 brings powerful, dynamic performance that establishes a new benchmark for mountain bike excellence. With DYNA-SYS11 Shimano encourages modern mountain bikers to ride anywhere with its advanced gearing concept that helps maintain rider efficiency.
Shimano Deore XT RD-M8000 Shadow Plus Rear Derailleur
The DEORE XT M8000 rear derailleur features Shimano’s optimized SHADOW RD+ technology with a shallow angle and extremely low profile design, reducing shift effort and improving chain stability, resulting in sharp and silky gear changes. Meanwhile new high efficiency pulleys adapted for cross-chain riding feature a taller tooth profile for improved shifting.
SHADOW RD+ friction clutch technology from the XTR range has been incorporated with increased ease of adjustment for either maximum stability or lower shift effort. The DEORE XT M8000 rear derailleur is compatible direct mount systems.
An exciting addition for DEORE XT M8000 is a 1x11-specific 11-42T cassette (CS-M8000) with HG-X11 specific tooth profile to provide the widest cassette range Shimano has ever produced.
Combined with a premium 11-speed chain featuring HG-X11 asymmetric plate design and SIL-TEC surface treatment, the DEORE XT M8000 results in superior mountain biking performance.
Crank FC-M8000-1 for 1x11-speed
The DEORE XT M8000 crank features Rider Tuned 11-speed gearing that will take you anywhere you want to go. The new construction provides consistent long-life shifting performance and chain management.
Reduced capacity for dropped chains
The 1x11 tooth profile on the XTR and new DEORE XT chainsets combine wide steel teeth shape with special hooked teeth design for lasting chain retention especially over uneven terrain. These improvements increase chain retention force by 150%, increasing chain life and drastically reducing the possibility of a dropped chain.
BB cups not included.
Recommended BB: BB-MT800 (Threaded) or BB-MT800-PA (Press-Fit).
Note: The 1-speed crank is also available as B-version for Boost 148 standard, with 3 mm outboard chain line.
BR-M8000 + BL-M8000 Disc Brake
Deore XT hydraulic disc brakes are the industry benchmark for affordable high performance. Consistently predictable and powerful, the trail-rated Deore XT M8000 retains that standard while upgrading with a lighter, cleaner and more durable integrated master cylinder. This gives a sleeker look, saves weight and frees up valuable handlebar space.
Refined Servo Wave levers provide improved feel and feedback, offering high power with a short brake pull. Like on past models, Deore XT brakes retain tool-free reach adjust and Free Stroke adjust, whilst a narrow clamp band offers increased lever adjustment. The Rider Tuned system accommodates 140 to 203mm rotors and multiple brake pad choices.
The levers feature the new handlebar-clearing I-spec II mounting. It is only compatible to I-Spec II! Not compatible to I-Spec A or I-Spec B!
SL-M8000 Rapidfire Plus Shifting Levers
As arguably the most tactile part of Shimano’s new DEORE XT M8000 groupset, the shifters play a vital aesthetic and ergonomic part. The dimpled long sweep paddle, grooved release paddle and OPTISLICK cable provide a 20% decrease in shift effort, crucial for the long distance endurance racer, and create an enhanced interface between rider and controls.
The 2-Way Multi Release mechanism provides a secondary gear change option whilst an improved Vivid indexing mechanism guarantees shift accuracy. Matching to the brake levers the right shifting lever is included in the I-Spec II version.
allows for quicker shifts, as it instantly releases the cable when the trigger is activated.
allows shifting two gears at once in both directions.
The levers are also equipped with 2-Way Release
for different riding styles or shifting (indexfinger or thumb) from various riding positions. The upper lever still performs the same function, but now it swings both ways. Pull it with your finger or push it with your thumb - you choose.
