New XTR M980 acknowledges the uniqueness of the different disciplines that the sport of mountain biking has evolved into. XTR’s Rider Tuned philosophy allows a rider to choose drive-train and braking options that best fit their style, use, and terrain. With Rider Tuned component options, XTR remains a relevant fit for any enthusiast or professional.
The term group-set comes from the Italian word for group (‘gruppo’) and defines a component manufacturer's organised collection of mechanical parts. It generally refers to all of the ‘running’ components that make up a bicycle, excluding the frame, forks, stem, wheels, tires, and the bits you hold-on with, like the saddle and handlebars.

Here is the world’s first bicycle with gears that can be changed by using your mind power. Unveiled by scientists at the Toyota Prius Project Parlee PXP bike, the cycle has a unique gearbox that is controlled by thoughts. It works by responding to cues from the brain. It will obviously be controlled only by the rider who will be wearing a unique helmet that transfers brainwaves using wireless technology to a micro-control. The neuron helmet woks on the principle of electrodes picking up neuro-electrical activity to send signals to an electronic gear shifter which is in this case placed under the bike’s seat.
