    XTR 2011 - pictures

    This could be the new XTR 2011 group - unfortunately, no picture of the cranks, or a close up of the wheels (different decals for sure) :

    Interesting, a 6 arm carrier on the 9 speed cassette, that must be a 36T big cog.

    Really interesting brake levers.

    There's 10 cogs on that cassette.

    Those shifters are slim ! I like the dots for grip.

    Interesting that they've changed the master cylinders to an Avid style.

    I like it alot. Brake calipers look so huge, I wonder what will be the weight, I guess around 50g lighter per brake + much more braking power.... Also disc rotors look beefed up (braking surface).
    I expected carbon wraped rims though, similar to current DA.......
    Shifters seem pretty much the same design. Single (hinge) clamp design for shifters and brakes rocks! No more pain in a... by removing grips!!!


    Still there are no pictures of crank and front mech, but I expect nothing exceptional there.

    I wonder what will be the finish of group- I prefer look of polished aluminium.

    Total group should be lighter around 200-300g I guess!

    Please put on more pictures if you find any!

    Wow, looks sweet. Two things that would hold me back from the brakes would be the way my xt's handled the cold weather and the how the rear piston got all sticky after a while and did not want to retract.

    Looks like XX & X0 are both going to be nicer for 2011 :P

    I want to see the crank and I wonder if the pedals will be updated at all.

    thought they were doing a double aswell? cant see the point in having 30 gears, its not like your going to gain anything. its better to have the double up the front .

    they better make a double, otherwise im buying SRAM, and thats not a decision i want to make

    They're doing a double and Race Face are fools if they don't this/next year too.

    Anyone know what will eventuate regarding frame compatibilities and the new XTR gear. I was wondering what specs are for the chain line on the double set-up and whether or not the q-factor will remain the same as it is with the present iteration?

    Very nice crank indeed! In a way similar to fc-m970 design. Don`t like wheelset decals- look so old fashioned! Except rd cage (and middle/granny chainring), there will be no other part made od carbon fiber, though CF brake levers would be nice touch.....

    any info about group weight? What are your estimations? Lighter than new X.O., XX maybe? :

    I called Shimano to ask about the Q-Factor. I was a bit puzzled when they told me that they do not plan to release any new XTR cranks. Uhhh....? Ok....

    Still in the pre-production phase I guess, so the Q-Factor may not be firm as of yet.

    There is an advert in many of the UK mags this month. shows most of the group. Dirt mag has quite a few details and a write up of the group.
