Description of Shimano Deore XT FD-M8070 Down-Swing Front Derailleur 2x11 - Direct Mount
Shimano released the highly anticipated follow up to the revolutionary XTR Di2 M9050 component group. Combining proven electronic technology and the legendary value of Shimano DEORE XT, new DEORE XT M8050 opens up Digital Integrated Intelligence to even more trail riders at a more affordable price. With the addition of Shimano E-Tube Wireless connectivity, handheld customization of a Di2-enabled bike is now a reality via a smart phone or tablet computer. Shimano DEORE XT M8050 Di2’s seamless performance, refined ergonomics and programmable shift logic can be tuned for any rider—elevating control and freeing the rider to focus solely on the trail ahead.
The new DEORE XT M8070 Di2 derailleurs blend powerful performance with precise shifting that remains crisp and consistent over time. Featuring auto trim technology and an optimized cage design, the DEORE XT Di2 front derailleur tracks the movement of the rear derailleur and delivers perfect shifts from every gear combination. The Shimano Shadow RD+ low-profile geometry and chain stabilizer ensure drivetrain security while the electronic wire transmission maintains consistent performance in all weather and trail conditions.
For riders who want expanded gear range while maintaining a simple rider interface, Shimano Synchronized Shift mode controls both derailleurs via a single Di2 FIREBOLT shifter. The system selects efficient gear combinations between the front and rear so riders just concentrate on pedaling and controlling the bike.
