The groupset is packed with a number of innovative features to make this possible.
Smooth and light front and rear shifters with OPTISLICK cables, 2-WAY RELEASE and RAPIDFIRE PLUS technology make changing gear a breeze. And visible displays on the shifters give riders an easy view over their gear choice.
Highly responsive hydraulic brakes are optimized for trekking conditions with long and comfortable 3 finger brake levers (BL-T6000). Stopping power is achieved through SM-RT54 CENTER-LOCK rotors (180mm/160mm), resin pads and BR-T615 calipers with One-Way Bleeding technology for easy maintenance.
Alternatively V-brakes are also in the line-up with a 2-finger (BL-T610) or 3-finger (BL-T6111) design and cartridge brake pads designed for balancing power/noise (S70C) or performance in the wet (M70CT4).
The drivetrain features a triple 48-36-26T HOLLOWTECH II 4-arm design with an optional chain guard to keep clothing away from the chain ring. All three rings are mounted to the crank-arm spider with a 4-bolt design so the rings can easily be swapped if necessary. Combined with the light action front shifter, HYPERDRIVE technology across all three chainrings ensures the chainset can achieve a high shifting performance under high loads.
To make those gear changes, top-swing or down-swing front derailleurs (FD-T610-3/6, FD-T611-3) provide three different cable routing options for compatibility with a wide number of frame designs. All three front derailleur designs provide wide clearance between frames, mud and chain guards and tires, so there is next-to-no chance of any interference.
The 10-speed rear derailleur (RD-T610) on the other hand offers a trekking-tuned spring for light and smooth shifting on all sprockets. The SHADOW design echoes other Shimano rear derailleurs with a low profile shape and single tension construction that does not hit the chain stay in rough riding conditions. The rear derailleur can accommodate a total capacity of 45T with the CS-HG500-10 cassette in 11-34T, 11-32T or 12-28T providing the optimum pairing.
The groupset is best paired with double-sided Click'R/Flat pedals (PD-T400/T421) or SPD/Flat pedals (PD-M324).
The new DEORE TREKKING groupset comes in an eye-catching silver or stealth matt black finish and will be available from July 2017.
