The Shimano XT M8000 2x11 speed groupset is perfect for riders who often find themselves in seriously hilly terrain. The double chainrings provide you with a slightly larger range of gears. You'll be able to maintain a higher cadence for more of the time, allowing you to last longer on longer rides.
The derailleurs do their job smoothly because of the polymer-coated inner cables. Together with the distinct click of the derailleurs and the correct derailleur tension, you'll always feel in controle and capable of split second reactions.
Shimano XT is known for offering excellent value for money. If you buy a bike fitted with this groupset, you just know you've gotten a great deal as you're getting superb braking performance and smooth shifting. This is also why this groupset is a perfect choice if you're not yet running XT and wish to upgrade your bike, or if you're building up your own mountain bike frame.
