Shimano XT brakes upgrade?


Recommended Posts



Does anybody know if Shimano will be releasing an upgrade to their existing disc brakes in 2011? They've announced the new XT drive system components with Dyna Sys, but I can't find any news about upgrades to the rest of their XT components.

Hmmm, after the new look XTR, you would think that XT would be "upgraded" too.

I like the new XTR brake setup. I also hate the now old looking XT cranks. The new SLX look better.


Surest way to make the current XT redundant is for you to buy it.

Guaranteed, the new look XT will be out a week later!

For 2011 everything looks the same. They just tweeked the rear derailleur and shifters to be 10 spd and made a special chain for 10 spd. I like the current look. Plain and simple with less paint to chip.
