The leading edge.
Shimano's XT Di2 M8050 groupset brings the precision of electronic shifting to the masses while opening up more customization thanks to wirelessly programmable shifting modes and button functions accessible through Shimano's E-Tube Project application. The M8070 Front Derailleur is powerful and precise, offering instant shifts even under load. A modular mounting structure allows it to fit any existing mountain bike with the use of XTR Di2 adapters, and thanks to Shimano's Synchro Shift capabilities, both the front and rear derailleur can be operated by a single shifter up front.

The joy of Di2
I have been riding DI2 since it was first introduced. I tried SRAM EAGLE XX1 on my new Jones mtb, but sold that off in a hurry and replaced with XT Di2. It is so nice to have the perfect-ever-time shifting of Di2. Sure, the SRAM stuff worked like it should, but was clunky, noisy, and crude compared to Shimano Di2. I went with a 2x drivetrain since you can program a single shifter to shift both derailleurs, and this way I had extra range. I know several folks who run Di2 with just a rear derailleur and 1xalso an excellent setup. Shimano Di2 is worth the price of entry.
