An elegant appearance and high-quality technologies distinguish Shimano's new SLX. The brand-new mid-range group offers countless of the performance features that already distinguish its "big sister", the Deore XT, and combines them with an excellent price-performance ratio, extreme robustness and comprehensive versatility. The result is mountain bike components that provide the right setup for almost every biker.
Where propulsion is becoming ever more efficient and the robustness of the components also allows more and more technically demanding descents, the deceleration performance must of course not be left behind. The new M7000 brakes of the SLX follow the "Rider Tuned" principle and can be optimally adapted to the terrain, driving style or personal preferences of the driver. The ergonomic Servo-Wave brake levers, among other things, are responsible for the high braking performance with low operating forces.
The BR-M7000 brake calipers can be equipped with resin or metal brake pads with or without cooling fins to further customise the system. An integral part of the brake system are also the new SM-RT70 Ice-Tech brake discs, which are available with a diameter of 160, 180 or 203 mm and contribute significantly to the excellent heat dissipation of the M7000 brakes.
One Way Bleeding: The one-way vent is designed to quickly and easily prevent air from entering the hydraulic system. The one-way brake fluid line path together with the mineral oil filling funnel provides clean, trouble-free bleeding.
