I’m running the 2012 XTR drivetrain and brakes on my new Stumpy Carbon 29 S-EVO, and they are simply incredible. The Shadow Plus rear derailleur makes everything else feel clunky, and the XTR Trail brakes with Ice Technology have set a new standard for consistent power.
Check out this Shimano video showing Santa Cruz Syndicate, Trek World Racing and Team Yeti opening their boxes of goodness.
Disclaimer: I got pro pricing on my recent Shimano purchase. I’m telling you: It’s great stuff.
Know more. Have more fun!
