    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.

    There’s an advert for the new XTR groupset in a few mags but it‘s little more than a teaser to say it‘s coming and doesn‘t show much at all. The ads and articles you’ve seen are about the new SLX and XT Dyna-sys components unless I've missed something.

    Sorry I don't have a scanner. July edition of dirt definately has lots of info on groupset. I'll try and take a pic with my phone or something. The brake calipers have radiators mounted on top of them to keep them cool, there are two types of brake levers - one has adjustment for bite point etc and the other hasn't so I presume one is designed for all mountain use and the other for weight weenies. Also the rear mech looks different to the ones in this thread. The silver 'x' part of the mech actually looks like a 'v' and the part that the cable goes into (sorry not a very tech term) is the same colour as the rest of the mech not silver as the prepro shows. The discs are also new. The braking surfaces are stainless steel sandwiching a piece of aluminium. I think that's about it. The shifters look exactly the same as before.

    Is that the XTR chain as well at the derailleur picture? Becouse you can see the quick link at the chain section rolling just above the lower pulley. Nice
    BTW, the brake lever pic from the link above looks awesome.

    I really hope they do a 10speed dual control for my flat bar road bike, starting to get a bit worried now though, not seen any evidence of any.

    wow, disc brakes look awsome and I am sure they will perform much better than current 975 (= stronger&lighter)
    Pedals, hubs, FD and shifters look almost identical, so no big changes here.

    Still chain, cassette and non-drive side crank arm are missing.

    Shame they did`t use more gold anodizing as it looks great on 15mm hub!

    But I guess will have to wait till next word cup race in Champery (end July) to get more info about whole group.

    Can`t wait to order new stuff!

    I expect that the pedals, shifters, hubs, etc. (all the stuff that still looks basically the same) will probably be lighter.

    Also, the pros should have it at nationals. So I'm sure there will be quite a few pictures of it pretty soon.

    I hate the crank to be honest, rest looks nice though. It's all on their website.

    Now you see me, now you don't

    The link worked a couple of hours ago. It showed two XTR versions trail and race with a double crank and no, no electronics

    I heard they're going to debut the group at BC Bike Race, which starts Saturday.

    I've seen a few photos, and there's A LOT going on with the new brakes that aren't on any of the photos here. Can't say anything, but it's going to be exciting.

    There's also for sure a double crank set. And a 15mm E-Thru XTR front wheel! Finally!

    Interesting that the chainring bolts are hidden on the triple, but exposed on the double. I wonder why?

    From Geoff Kabush's Twitter feed:

    "Watched a whole gaggle of fancy schmancy new bits get put on my all-terrain bicycle today."

    BC Bike Race starts tomorrow. He's racing it solo.

    The 2 chainring version seems like a CAD model.Can anyone confirm weather there will actually be a 2x10 XTR?
