The FD-M8000 XT front derailleur by Shimano - with side-swing technology


The Shimano XT FD-M8000 is a front derailleur for three chainrings, which plays an important role in the Dyna-Sys11 11-speed derailleur system. Its optimised pull (front pull) and innovative design (side swing) ensure powerful but always smooth gear changes and unprecedented performance even on full suspension bikes with more travel. The tyre clearance has been designed so that shorter chainstays are no problem. XT FD-M8000 is available with four mounting options (high clamp, low clamp, direct mount, bottom bracket mount).

Technology:

Dyna-Sys11
Dyna-Sys11 is the name of the 11-speed shifting system for MTBs from Shimano. The focus lies on maintaining the pedalling rhythm both on flat ground and on uphill segments. The gear ratios are selected so that you make efficient progress in the most frequently used gear range and do not have to shift gears as much (" Rhythm Step" ).

Side-Swing
The Shimano Side-Swing front derailleurs are controlled from the front (Front-Pull), which allows for much more efficient cable routing. This significantly improves shifting performance, especially when shifting to the large chainring - with lower operating forces. Other advantages include increased tyre clearance thanks to the slimmed-down design and noise reduction thanks to the optimised chainstay angle. In addition, Side-Swing technology favours the construction of frames with shorter chainstays, which simplify the control of the bike.

Leider kam das Paket sehr zerstört bei mir an, aber technisch ist der Werfer in Ordnung. Hab leider versehentlich einen 3-fach statt 2-fach erwischt.

Fantastische Funktion am 27,5er Trail-/Tourenfully, sehr geringe Schaltkräfte, präzise Schaltvorgänge auch im Schnee. Kein Schleifen, gut einstellbar. Die Entfaltung von 3-/11-fach nutze ich bei jeder Tour!
