Shimano Deore XT FC-M8100 2; an entirely new construction

With 1x drivetrains are becoming ever popular in the mountain bike world, Shimano is back at it again with a double ring set-up reminding us of all the perks of a 2x drivetrain.

A 2x drivetrain utilizes closer steps between gears. This feature allows you to find your perfect cadence while spinning up climbs, much easier. There's no need to sacrifice low-end gearing when you can have both.

The tried and true Hollowtech 2 construction now uses direct mount chainrings, a special gear tooth profile for improved chain retention and a narrower 172mm Q-factor, giving you more comfort in the saddle.

Using the Hollowtech 2 technology, proprietary to Shimano, the crank arms are trusted to have superb balancing stiffness, strength, and weight, resulting in ultimate power transfer. Shimano's Hollowtech uses cold-forging to engineer hollow crank arms that are surprisingly light yet won't flex under pressure.

The new direct-mount chainring application allows you to easily swap chainrings without the extra work of removing your crank. Equipped with a 36/26t chainset and the same crank arms as the single-ring setup, you can easily switch over to a 1x by swapping chainrings and removing your front derailleur.

Features:

  • Refined 2x crankset for Shimano XT 12-speed drivetrains
  • Optimized chain line for bikes with non-Boost hub spacing
  • Hollowtech II construction is lightweight, stiff, and strong
  • Direct-mount chainring; making gear super swapping easy
  • Special gear tooth profile for improved chain retention
  • Cranks can be easily swapped between 1x and 2x setups
  • Narrowest possible Q-factor for compact fit and pedaling efficiency

    I've been rebuilding the drivetrain on my surly ECR., which I use for daily commutes trail riding and bikepacking. The original 5-arm crank was difficult to find decent chainrings that would mount on the old surly crank. The new crank holds the chain great with no slip, even though I'm running with a 9 in back at the moment. I've bashed around with it pretty extensively for the last 3 months and it shift easily and grabs the chain quickly with no slip. Highly recommend.
