Shimano XT MT8000 11-Speed Shadow Rear Derailleur
The XT M8000 Shadow+ 11 Speed Rear Derailleur features Shimano's Direct Mount compatible Rear Derailleur system which gives more space around the rear frame dropout resulting in easier rear wheel removal, but also allows frame designers to shorten chain stays, increase axle sizes and move suspension pivots.
The Deore XT Shadow Dyna-Sys11 11-speed rear derailleur delivers reliable and precise shifting with a stiff and lightweight open design and uses a super low profile design that reduces the risk of damage from trail side hazards. Shadow Plus uses a chain stabilising switch that when on will reduce chain bounce in rough terrain maintaining more stable drive and shifting. This can be switched off to remove the wheel Shadow design slant angle has been optimized for use with 40-42T sprockets.
The chain tension stabilizer is also easily adjustable externally with the use of a hex key. Four fluorine-coated link pin bushings make this one of the slickest shifting derailleurs on the trails and the high rigidity wide outer link braces the pulley body to increase pivot joint rigidity resulting in a crisp shift.
