"Shimanos Rider Tuned philosophy is on display with SLX M7000, as the group offers a broad spectrum of drivetrain range options, and supports the latest trail and recreational bikes with bigger tires, wider hub flange spacing or both. Shimano SLX M7000 has been redesigned from the ground up to perform in any trail situation. The SLX FC-M7000 crank now shares premium technologies found in XTR M9000 and DEORE XT M8000 groups, including Dynamic Chain Engagement (DCE) and 3D composite chain rings. The DCE profile runs faster yet increases chain retention force by 150 percent. Stainless steel chain ring teeth provide long life and lasting chain retention. This crank is highlighted by the 11-speed DYNA-SYS11 drivetrain.
This is B-version of the FC-M7000. It offers a chain line with 3 mm outboard for hubs / wheels with 148 mm over locknut distance from current Plus-Bikes. It requires special frame dimensions where cassette position and FD mount position are 3mm outboard. These frames are only compatible with E-Type and Direct-Mount front derailleurs.

The real advantage of 11-speed is the ability to have all the range you require without sacrificing the rhythm you need. Dyna-Sys11 maximizes rhythm with rhythm step gears in the most frequently used range. Driving efficiency is a key drivetrain performance indicator. More speed for the same effort.
The concept of Hollowtech II technology is focused on producing a superior crankset, which will maximize a riders power transfer. The rigidity of the crankset ensures pedalling efficiency while its weight, a key element of the crankset, you want light, aids in cycling longer distances over which the rider needs to pedal more. Naturally, Shimano strove for the optimum balance between the conflicting needs of stiffness while producing a lightweight crank.
Outboard Bearings: For most frames with 68 mm bottom bracket shells, Hollowtech II with 24 mm axle can set the bearing position outside of the frame to provide better weight distribution and more stability.
High Precision Sealing: Hollowtech II cranksets have a high-precision sealing in the bearing area to increase durability maintaining the excellent rotating performance for long periods.
