Better sealing and smoother running. Longer life and less draggy? Posted 4 years ago KlunkMember no new pedal then ? hopeless. Posted 4 years ago jamesoSubscriber New BB may be the most welcome bit of the groupset ) Posted 4 years ago danielgrovesMember Those brakes look sexy… bet I won’t be able to afford them though. Posted 4 years ago clubberMember Interesting rotors – I wonder if road/cx discs have driven that to try and keep temperatures down. Posted 4 years ago honourablegeorgeMember Lighter brakes, new wheels, etc New Shimano XTR Components And Wheels Posted 4 years ago RorschachMember BB is the same design as the Da9000 one.Tiny bearing! Posted 4 years ago perthmtbMember Was anyone else expecting XTR to get electronic shifting like Di2 for 2014 – or maybe this is just a ‘mid-release’? By the way, those rotors are nothing new – Saint has them already, and going from the current one-piece caliper to a two piece design seems like a retrograde step. Posted 4 years ago aphex_2kMember To the casual eye (I’m sure they’re faster, stronger, lighter) they look like a grey XT lever and caliper. Which can be bought for 200 bucks a pair if you shop around. What’s new, really? Posted 4 years ago tomhowardSubscriber I’d say it was an update, as they have stuck with the M98x model numbers. M99x will be the next proper release. Posted 4 years ago ModaMember If the 40gms per brake does not include the rotor that puts it in Formula R1 territory Posted 4 years ago Viewing 11 posts - 1 through 11 (of 11 total) The topic ‘New XTR bits’ is closed to new replies.
