The tried and tested Shimano Deore XT provides the engine for the Kibo.


The 10 speed Deore XT triple 26-36-48 chainset combined with the Deore 11-36 cassette provide a great gearing range for all terrain, and all hills with loaded panniers. This provides a 607% gear range with 19.6 gear inches from 1st gear and 119 inches in 27th.


The front Deore and rear Deore XT derailleurs deliver smooth and reliable shifting across the 30 gears.

The shifting is through Microshift bar-end shifters, a friction shifter controls the front chainwheel and a friction/index shifter controls the 10 speed rear cassette.

The Rohloff Speedhub is also an option with both flat or drop bars, click here for the Skyelander Rohloff gallery or email us if this is of interest.
