New DEORE XT and DEORE with LINKGLIDE Technology: Smooth and Seamless Performance that’s Made to Last

Shimano (Japan) - Press Release: Say hello to reduced drivetrain wear and tear. Thanks to SHIMANO DEORE XT and DEORE with LINKGLIDE technology, you can enjoy high-mileage, low-maintenance cycling for years to come – without worrying about having to replace or repair components.

With the rapid growth of e-bikes and different riding styles, ‘drivetrain durability’ has become a hot topic. At SHIMANO, we’ve noticed that many cyclists tend to ride in the same gear for long periods of time. This has led to unusual wear and tear. Shifting – and riding – under torque has further reduced drivetrain performance.

To solve this issue, we’ve designed and engineered new LINKGLIDE technology that’s specifically aimed at reducing wear and tear on drivetrains. The result is a new era of durable, long-lasting drivetrains that deliver the seamless shifting that SHIMANO is renowned for. Simultaneously, we’ve improved the overall performance of each component and, in turn, pure pedalling enjoyment.

DEORE XT (1x11 speed) and DEORE (1x10 speed) with new LINKGLIDE technology are intended for use on a wide variety of bikes and different riding styles but especially suited to high-torque e-bikes.

Tried and trusted tech:

LINKGLIDE technology builds upon HYPERGLIDE+ technology – favoured by sports riders and racers who appreciate quick shifts and having less grams on board. LINKGLIDE drivetrains have been specifically engineered to be more durable yet still deliver smooth and decisive shifting – along with a great pedalling experience.

Under the bonnet:

DEORE XT and DEORE with LINKGLIDE technology have been robustly engineered to significantly reduce daily wear and tear. An optimised teeth profile and shifting gate will keep your chain on the bike – and keep chain skips at bay – for longer. You’ll also benefit from smoother shifting, down and up, and reduced pedal shock – particularly suited to the brisk acceleration and deceleration of e-bikes.
