They actually feel about the same, just made lighter and a little higher grade materials.
I read somewhere that LX < SLX < XT < XTR is no longer true. Instead, each level has its own fit depending on riding style.Maadjurguer said:And remember that the SLX has perhaps the best stopping power of the Shimano line outside of the Saint brakes....which is crazy stopping power. XT is going to be less power than the SLX with XTR even less than XT. That's what you get for the lighter weight.
