Shimano’s new XT FD-M8020 master front shifting for a 2x crankset with a bold new design and approach.
Debuting on XTR M9000, the light and crisp shift action of the DEORE XT SIDE SWING front derailleur (FD-M8020 2×11 or FD-M8000 3×11 option) has been designed with long travel trail bikes in mind. Both M8000 derailleurs bring a drastic reduction in shift effort with efficient cable routing and enhanced stability, while also increasing tire clearance allowing for shorter chainstays. High clamp, low clamp, D-type and E-type mounting options are available.
Designed specifically with modern trail bikes in mind, Shimano’s XT Side-Swing front derailleur provides 15mm of increased tire clearance, while new cable routing dramatically reduces shifting effort. Designed for larger wheels and longer travel, XT M8000 brings Shimano’s industry-leading front shifting to another level.
The real advantage of 11-speed is the ability to have all the range you require without sacrificing the rhythm you need.
