Many people speculated that XTR would follow XT into Servowave brake levers but there hasn't been a huge outcry from racers who need more braking power with less effort. Brakes just slow you down.greyhorse said:Wasn't there some talk of redesigned brake levers for XT/XTR? Something about improved ergonomics?
EGF168 said:Mbr magazine reckons there will be a new XTR gruppo announced by the early part of next year for 2010. They also speculated that a few of the things used in the new Dura-ace gruppo like electric shifting, carbon reinforced rims etc. would make their way onto XTR. Mbr’s reviews maybe jokes but their speculation tends to come true…:thumbsup:
I was taking a look at the Yumeya website and noticed the new reservoir cover is for BL-M975/975A. Doing a google search it looks like they are coming out with a new lever with improved ergonomics.rockyuphill said:Many people speculated that XTR would follow XT into Servowave brake levers but there hasn't been a huge outcry from racers who need more braking power with less effort.

If they sealed it properly then I think the only problem would be the batteries running out, their electric road gruppo has recently got a couple of rave reviews. In any case I agree with you and I doubt they would roll out an entirely electric XTR, if they did it they would probably have both electric and cable to suite everyone.ivantcs said:i think electric shifting is no use. mud, water everything gets in and spoil?
and not much people would want a carbon rim.
Black RONIN said:When will they ever come with a 15QR version of the XTR wheelset? Mavic has released 15QR/9mm and even a 20mm TA version of SLR, so what's Shimano waiting for? :madman:
I think there were differences according to the groupset images that shimano update from time to time:ivantcs said:people always like to call them 2008 XTR crank etc to sound newer i think.
people call them 2008 XTR because its made in 2008. but its 2007's design.
