Shimano has always been on the cutting edge of cycling technology. Their constant pursuit of perfection has led to lighter, stronger and easier-to-use components. These beautiful parts make great upgrades individually and as entire groups. Take a look at the examples here and then swing by the shop to see how Shimano components can make your bike ride better than ever!
Flawless function, awesome reliability and Incredible weight savings separate Shimano's XTR components from the pack. These amazing parts often weigh less than half what the competition does while providing greater strength, durability and stiffness. Translation: these are must-spec components for your top-of-the-line off-road rig. Plus, you'll appreciate the precision stopping power of the hydraulic-disc brakes, the ergonomic ease of the integrated shifters and the way the stiff crankset turns your bike into a rocket. Whether you're podium-bound or simply need components that can handle long, hard miles, XTR is the way to go.
In keeping with the XTR legend, Shimano's XTR Rapidfire Plus shifters offer unparalleled shifting and versatility. They let you grab more than one gear both up and down the cassette, and for the first time, the release lever (black) can be shifted by pushing or pulling (thumb or forefinger) and immediately feeds the cable so shifts are fired off faster than ever! Plus, these beauties will work with any brake or handlebar set-up, too.
Shimano's Deore XT components offer phenomenal braking and shifting at a sweet price! These tough parts include the instantaneous, all-condition stopping power of hydraulic-disc brakes, the stiff power transfer of an integrated-bottom-bracket crankset, and the effortless shifting of Dual Control levers. Take a test ride and you'll understand why XT is a favorite of aspiring racers, adrenaline junkies and bargain hunters alike.
Like magic, Shimano's Dual Control levers let you shift and brake with a single lever with only 2 fingers, and also brake and shift simultaneously. It means that shifting is easier than ever and that you're always in complete control of braking and shifting no matter what the trail throws at you!
When it's time to go big you need faith: faith in your abilities, faith in your experience and especially faith in your equipment. Shimano's Saint components inspire religious levels of faith. They're overbuilt for riders that constantly push the limits. The beefy hubs are twice the size of average models and ensure that you'll fearlessly stick your landings. Plus the rear hub also serves as the derailleur mounting point so you never have to worry about bent hangers again. The rigid crankset is ready for extreme terrain and the disc brakes provide the precision stopping power you need to handle even supernatural off-road challenges.
No matter how brutal the riding or how long the drops, Shimano's Saint crankset can take it. Its Hollowtech II design integrates the crankarms and bottom bracket into a single unit with a beefy spindle, large-diameter bearings and ultra-wide bearing spacing for maximum rigidity and strength. And, thanks to the light weight, the Saint won't hold you back when you take to the air.
Shimano's XTR WH-M975 Disc Tubeless wheelset provides an almost unfair advantage on top-level cross-country courses and everywhere else you ride. These light, strong wheels are incredibly fast and offer precise control ideal for just about any riding condition. They boast Shimano's lateral-crossover spoke lacing and tough aluminum rims for maximum power transfer, a super ride and first-rate durability. Plus, the XTR hubs are built to last and feature Shimano's Center Lock rotor mounts, which are easy-to-use, light and dependable.
