New Shimano "Linkglide" MTB Drivetrain Tech

New 1x11 and 1x10 components focused on longevity and durability over weight and performance.

Features an 11-50 11sp cassette.


Looks nice and seems like a great budget offering. Why do they name it XT when it’s also the name of the upper level 12 speed groupset?

Yeah I agree with that. Especially since it doesn’t sound like it’s compatible with the existing 11sp XT stuff.
