Designed around the concept of performance and leisure, new Deore M6000 is for trail riders and MTB enthusiasts, MTB commuters and outdoor leisure riders who need daily durability to cope with rough roads, rain, sand and the worst that nature can throw at you.
Deore M6000 remains as a 10-speed groupset but with some innovative features for confident, smooth, flexible riding with limitless possibilities.
The 2x10 drivetrain (FC-M6000) adopts the family look of XTR, XT and SLX drivetrains with a sleek four-arm Hollowtech II one-piece composite design in 3 size options (38-28T, 36-26T, 34-24T) and an alternative 3mm outboard Boost version. Meanwhile the 3x10 drivetrain takes on a unique, aggressive look offering 40-30-22T for a wide range of riding styles. Both drivetrains combine with a new wider range 11-42T 10-speed Dyna-Sys cassette (CS-HG500) as well as three other 11-36/34/32T cassette options.
2x10 and 3x10-speed gear changes are handled by a Shadow RD+ derailleur in the rear (RD-M6000-GS) offering improved chain stability and retention. Up front, three derailleur swing options (top, down and side) can be combined with five types of mount options (high, low, direct mount, e-type and a new mid-type) to offer cable routing and/or satisfy new manufacturing requirements such as rear suspension or tyre clearance.
Shifting operation comes from Rapidfire Plus shift levers (SL-M6000) with a visual display for gear choice. Control comes from new hydraulic brakes with Servo wave high power levers (BL-M6000) and heat insulated callipers (BR-M6000) designed to accommodate Ice Technologies brake pads.
Hubsets (HB-M6000/10, FH-M6000/10) complete the group with a 100x15mm E-Thru axle option at the front and centre-lock mounts for easy rotor installation.
