SRAM is not alone anymore on the 1×11 drivetrain market with the reveal of the shimano XTR 2015 groupset.
Here are some pictures of the group. We’ll detail all the stuff later but you can note that the XTR 2015 is available in many settingd, from 1-ring / 11 speeds to more conventionnal 2/3 rings crankset but with still a 11-40 cassette rear !
11 / 22 / 33 speeds ready – that could be the claim of SHimano XTR 2015 M9000 drivetrain !
For now, what you can see here is a mechanical groupset.
Front derailleur uses the “sidewind” concept, with a cable that comes sideway and not anymore pull / push.
