After the mountain bike flagship, XTR has already set benchmarks and Deore XT and SLX have followed suit, the Deore M6100 now rounds off Shimano's 12-speed lineup. It is complemented by the components of the M5100 and M4100 series which will equip 11- and 10-speed drivetrains at the same high level.
Regarding the price, the current Shimano Deore groups are positioned in the entry-level range but are not prepared to compromise in terms of performance, quality and reliability. Almost everything that the high-end group's XTR, XT, and SLX have to offer in terms of technology, innovation, performance, and range of functions, you will find in the Deore components, too.
The hydraulic Deore BL-M6100 brake lever is characterized by Shimano's SERVOWAVE technology which improves the lever's modulation ability. Because the brake lever absorbs a lot of braking distance right at the start of its movement, the brake pads have disc contact more quickly and it remains more lever travel to adjust the braking force. That is why SERVO WAVE brake systems are characterized by the faster response, higher performance, and shorter idle travel.
The 2-finger brake lever's construction is inspired by XTR, Deore XT, and SLX series, so the clamp is not mounted parallel, but with an angle to the handlebar creating a second contact point that provides significantly increased stiffness. For individual customizability, the lever is equipped with an integrated, tool-based reach adjustment option. Thanks to the I-Spec EV design the Deore SL-M6100-I shifting levers can be mounted directly to the brake lever.
With its 4-piston construction, the Shimano Deore BR-M6120 Postmount brake caliper is perfect for Enduro and Downhill use. The D03S Resin brake pads in combination with the powerful caliper guarantee extremely good deceleration.
