In 2015 Shimano introduced its Deore XT M8000 series for mountain bikers. Now Shimano has expanded the Deore XT definition to cover mountain biking and trekking with its T8000 range. Although the two component groups look very different, much like the riders, they share advanced riding technology that it set to increase performance and enjoyment in a variety of mixed-terrain on-road and off-road trekking and touring conditions.
Shimano Deore Trekking T8000 brake set consisting of the comfortable BL-T8000 brake lever and the powerful BR-M8000 2-piston caliper. Trouble-free maintenance is provided by the proven One Way Bleeding concept and the Easy Hose Joint System which simplifies brake hose exchanges.
