The Shimano Deore M8130 Linkglide Upgrade Kit - Durable 1x11-speed drivetrain for your E-bike

This upgrade kit includes the basic equipment for a Deore 1x11-speed Linkglide drivetrain, which was specifically developed by Shimano for e-bikes and punishing uses in the trekking and MTB sector. It provides you with the Linkglide 11-speed cassette CS-LG600-11, which is characterised by particularly long durability and very smooth gear changes, as well as with the matching CN-LG500 Linkglide chain with master link. Here you have the choice between different numbers of links, depending on whether you need a long or rather a shorter chain for your bike. Also included is the RD-M8130 11-speed rear derailleur, which features Shadow Plus technology for optimal chain retention. The SL-M8130 shifter mounts on the right side over the I-Spec EV mount of a compatible brake lever. Thanks to 2-Way Release, it allows for a release of the cable via index finger or thumb pressure and ensures instantaneous shifting thanks to Instant Release.

Guidelines for Replacing E-bike Components:

Before you replace components on your e-bike, please read through the guidelines for component replacement for CE-marked e-bikes/pedelecs with pedal assistance.

Top Schalung - benutze sie mit einem 44er Shimano Kettenblatt an einem Brose Motor (Touren Ebike). Sehr exakt - etwas schwergängiger am Trigger als die Sram Gx.
