Boost your chainline.
Shimano recently ushered Deore XT into the realm of 11-speed, and the FD-M8025-D 2x11 Front Derailleur is replete with nods to many of the other trends in the industry today. The most pronounced of these nods is that the M8025 is compatible with the wider chain lines of Boost hubs and cranks. It also provides wider clearance for the new crop of larger wheels and tires and it's compatible with the shorter chainstays found on many of today’s frames. Even with these changes, Shimano retains the XT front derailleur’s efficient cable routing to keep shift action light and quick, and the M8025 model eschews the new side-swing style for conventional cable pull.
