Double your pleasure.

With M8000, Deore XT has adopted the 11-speed configuration of most high-end drivetrains. The double configuration has become increasingly popular in the last few years, since it covers most terrain, while eliminating the weight and complication of the third front ring.

The premise of the 2x11 configuration is a more-than-adequate gear ratio spread without the rarely necessary triple in front. The double has been proven to cover almost any terrain that a mountain biker will encounter, although the triple can be an advantage in extreme situations.

The Hollowtech II arms have been reshaped with an asymmetric design that's different yet evokes the sophistication of XTR. The right arm is pressed together with the hollow 24mm spindle at the factory, and the splined left crank arm mates to the spindle during installation and is secured with perhaps Shimano's best detail — two pinch bolts to secure the arm once the bearing preload is dialed in perfectly. In our experience, it's a superior design in terms of installation, performance, and durability. The bottom bracket is improved, as well, with lighter weight, improved durability, and reduced seal drag.

  • Deore XT crankset pricing with XTR functionality
  • Sleeker graphics and more streamlined construction
  • Durable Hollowtech II design promises longevity
  • Lighter bottom bracket delivers reduced seal drag

Do these fit on the 2016 Bronson or do I need to get the boost model?

Needs a Bigger Big Ring

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

For those of you that do not want to run a single or a triple chainring Shimano offers the XT 8000 crankset in a double ring option. The cranks are standard top notch quality you expect from Shimano. Aesthetics wise they will not win top honors in sexy crank arms of the year. BB is not included with the crankset.

Chainring wear leaves something to be desired but is expected when the rings get smaller. The upside is that you have a lot of useable gears when riding. The 38 ring gets to be a little small for xc riding….especially rolling terrain or short steep climbs that you can crank over. There are places that you just want to pedal through instead of coast down.

Taking away a star since Shimano is not offering a big ring larger than a 38. I have been using the last generation XTR double cranks and they at least offered a 42 or a 40 for the big ring. I would replace the rings but its less expensive to pick up an XT crankset than but two XTR chainrings. It would be nice if they offered a 40T big ring option.
