For riders that value versatility, light weight, and all-out performance, the all-new Deore XT M8000 double crank is one of the best values on the market. The Deore XT M8000 Hollowtech II crankset is features an all-new 11-speed design that gives you the power to choose how and where you ride. A 2x11 drivetrain will give you 22 possible gearing combinations, so there is truly no terrain that will hold you back. The XT M8000 crankset feature new 3D composite teeth that are optimized for each chainrings specific torque load while pedaling, making them more durable and stronger, while still being thinner and lighter than previous versions. The new crankset design utilizes Shimano's new 4-arm crank design found in both their road groupsets and the pro-level XTR 9000 cranks, which maximizes rigidity, for smoother shifts and more efficient power transfer. The chainring gearing options also keep the ratios loose, for a minimal shifting gap with no large leaps in gearing--making it easier to maintain your cadence and keep your rhythm out on the trail.
