Providing MTB and E-MTB riders with additional component solutions, Shimano has introduced both a new DEORE XT 4-piston Hydraulic Brake Caliper as well as a DEORE XT-level E-MTB specific crank arm set for STEPS E8000.

New DEORE XT 4-Piston Hydraulic Brake Caliper offers increased braking power

Designed to offer increased braking performance to aggressive trail riders and E-MTB riders alike, the new DEORE XT BR-M8020 4-Piston Hydraulic Disc Brake Caliper provides 20-percent increased power when compared to the BR-M8000 2-piston Hydraulic Disc Brake Caliper. Compatible with the existing DEORE XT M8000 lever, the addition of the 4-piston calipers gives riders additional tuning options.

E-MTB-specific Crank Arm Set delivers DEORE XT HOLLOWTECH performance

An addition to the E8000 group, the DEORE XT FC-M8050 HOLLOWTECH crank arm set delivers DEORE XT-level performance in an E-MTB specific application. Built to withstand the rigors of trail riding, the FC-M8050 is available in a shorter 165mm crank arm length to help E-MTB riders minimize pedal strikes while maintaining pedalling motion and motor assistance.
