price may vary in storeFollowing mountain biking's evolutionary path, Shimano DEORE XT M8000 delivers 11-speed features, providing for premium performance. The new XT range elevates enduro and cross country riders’ performance on demanding trails or race circuits, as the development of the XT M8000 range filters mechanisms from the top of the range XTR level components. The CS-M8000 is the suitable cassette for new XT 11-speed group. Like its XTR sibling, DEORE XT M8000 offers 1x11, 2x11, and 3x11 crank options to satisfy any type of rider ability level or terrain. New 2x11 and 3x11 M8000 drivetrains expand range while maintaining even better rhythm when paired with an 11-40T cassette for optimized cadence control. An exciting addition for DEORE XT M8000 is a 1x11 specific 11-42T cassette that expands Shimano’s 1x11 gear range slightly over the race inspired 11-40T of XTR.
