Shimano LinkGlide sets a new standard for smooth and reliable shifting. Its robust original design delivers far greater durability and smooth shifting for long-lasting performance.
3X More Durable
Drivetrain durability is essential for high torque e-bikes and daily riders who might ride in the same gear for months or years at a time. LinkGlide provides smooth and decisive shifting that lasts longer than ever before.
The Shimano XT LinkGlide Upgrade kit delivers up to three times smoother performance by improving the chain's flow between cogs. This smoother handoff reduces the stress of shifting shock for more seamless and enjoyable riding. In addition, its optimized shifting gate design creates a smoother handoff between cogs to avoid the jumps that can impact shifting and pedaling smoothness. This design improvement is especially pronounced on outward shifts where the pedaling shock is more noticeable due to the larger forces involved.
