Big wheel specific Dyna-sys cranks

For 2014, Shimano introduces new Dyna-Sys compact triple cranks tailored for mountain bikers riding 29” and 27.5” bikes. The 40-30-22T combination is available in Deore XT, SLX and new Deore 610 series groups and offers the ultimate in trail gearing for 29 and 27.5” wheeled bicycles. To compliment the new gearing, two new front derailleurs will be offered in the Deore XT and SLX lines, the FD-M781-A-B and the FD-M671-A-B, down swing models with a low profile design for excellent clearance. The perfect compliment to the 38-26 racing double, the more versatile 40-30-22T triple cranksets available for Deore, Deore XT and SLX lines provide the range to challenge any trail while the close step gearing will keep riders in better rhythm. The compact triple will feature a composite 30T middle ring. This high performance, high durability middle ring is the heart of the drivetrain and the perfect gear for those technical single track climbs.
