Shimano XT FC-M8000 2x11 Crankset

Rider Tuned for any Terrain

The long awaited Shimano XT 11 speed drivetrain has made its grand entrance and to celebrate the Shimano XT 11-speed cranks turn on an updated bottom bracket that reduces both the weight and bearing drag, while improving its performance in muddy conditions. Through Shimano’s proven Hollowtech ll technology, the XT M8000 Crankarms receive a shot of stiffness and more weight savings. Additionally, the asymmetrical bolt pattern strategically places the strength spots where the most pedal force is exerted, providing more stability and trail-crushing responsiveness.

The 2x11 (double) model of the XT M8000 rethinks its two rings, expanding the range of gears to maintain a better cadence when paired with an 11-40T cassette. The chainrings are precisely carved to optimize the teeth for the specific 2x11 chainwheel load, both improving chain retention and prolonging the lifespan of the teeth.

Deore XT M8000 Boost 2x11 Crankset Features:

  • Hollowtech II Technology
  • New 3D Composite chain ring’s teeth compositions is optimized for 2x11 load out with steel driving gear teeth and aluminum support gears
  • Loose ratio gear combination for minimum shifting gap to maintaining rhythm
  • Improved Driving Rigidity
  • More resilient chain wheel teeth
  • Enhanced chain retention
  • Better sealing and smoother rotation

Comments about Shimano XT FC-M8000-2 Crankset:

Very easy to install with the BB-MT800 I purchased with this crank set. Very light weight and stiff, this is replacing a Truvativ Stylo that came on my bike 10 years ago. I nursed my 3x9 drive train for far too long. I finally pulled the trigger on the XT 11 speed system this season. I ordered the 38x28T crank set and pulled the 28T ring right away. I wanted to try running just the 38T ring alone for a simple 1x11 set up, and if I did not like it, I could easily convert to a 2x11 set up.

I was worried about dropping the chain since the 38T ring does not have the DCE of the purpose built 1x11 chain rings. If I keep the clutch engaged on the on the new XT rear derailleur it does not have any issue with dropping the chain, if the drive train is clean...

Once the drive train starts to get grimy and the shifts are not as smooth as they can be, the chain likes to jump on occasion. I'm most likely going to change to a narrow wide style chainring to help keep the chain put.

Overall, I'm loving this 1x11 set up and this crank set is awesome. I'm loving the gearing and how smooth this system is. I've gained noticeable speed on the trail with this system compared to my old 3x9 drive train.

        I bought this to use with my 1 X 11 drive train and it works pretty well. If I put the rear in the 42T speocket it will drop back down when pedaling backwards after a couple cranks but I am usually not pedaling backwards ehen using the 42T speocket so functionally it doesn't matter. Otherwise has held up well so far.
