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.
