Shimano Drivetrain Comparison – XTR vs. XT vs. SLX vs. Deore

Shimano has multiple drivetrain levels and in this video, we are going to explain the differences between them all. Consider this your Shimano Drivetrain Buyer’s guide. Recently, Shimano completed their hierarchy of drivetrain groupsets with the release of the Deore 12 speed groupo. With the borrowed technology from XTR, XT, and SLX, there is a 12-speed drivetrain offered at every price point. In this video, Jeff walks us through the physical differences, weights, and shifting characteristics of each drivetrain group kit. Also included is a deep dive into each group’s individual components which include the crankset, chainring, shifter, derailleur, hub spline, and chain. Get comfortable and take it all in!
