For 2015 Shimano will have their electronic shifting XTR M9050 components available. We got to check them out at Interbike this year and things are looking good.
We’ve covered the XTR M9050 product range awhile earlier but snapped a few pictures of the electronic gruppo as well for you all to take a closer look at. IF you haven’t seen the M9000 (XTR Mechanical Gruppo) that is also worth a look at to learn the details of the new XTR gruppo.

The system has a variety of customizable modes that are quite smart like audible beeps when you’re at the high or low end of the cassette range. When paired with a double it is also supposed to have the ability to shift through both rings with only one rear shifter, reduce cross chaining, cook you breakfast, and more.
