Mountain biking has rapidly evolved since the previous introduction of Shimano’s top level XTR groupset. Shimano sees different directions in mountain biking with wheel sizes and riding styles changing and now defines four main categories within mountain biking. Competitive Cross Country is driven by physical efforts while Enduro focuses on more technical challenges but both have equivalents at the non-competitive Trail level. To serve mountain bikers who will only settle for the best, Shimano today introduces the new rider tuned XTR M9000 groupset.
New XTR M9000 provides range and ensures rhythm for diverse riding styles and terrain to create smooth, harmonic pedaling - the ultimate goal of a drivetrain.
Crankset FC-M9020-3 for 3x11-speed
For those who prefer an all-round bike to explore trails and conquer every climb, Shimano has developed a versatile and proven 3x11 drivetrain.
The FC-M9020 is a trail specific crank arm with a cold forged super strong construction and a standard 168mm Q-factor for 1x, 2x or 3x setups. If you want to change from a single ring to double or triple you only have to change the chainrings. The dedicated XTR 1x chainring features retention technology with a unique tooth profile that eliminates the need for chain retention devices.
