Shimano Deore XT Rd-M8000 Rear Derailleur

Shimano Deore XT Rd-M8000 Rear Derailleur

  • £55.00


An important development from Shimano, Shadow+ technology. It has a smaller work angle and is extremely low profile. Now the rear derailleur needs less force to shift and it keeps the chain much more stable. The derailleur pulleys are larger and can handle extreme chain angles better increasing its shifting performance. The clutch can be adjusted just like with XTR to provide either maximum stability or minimal shifting force. This derailleur is direct mount compatible and in the GS version is perfect for 1- and 2-speed systems. The SGS version has a longer cage and made to handle more chain from 3-speed systems.

Technology:

Dyna-Sys11
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.

Shadow RD+
Less distraction quiet drivetrain. Rear derailleur stabilizer reduces chain slap. A simple solution for chain drop. Lighter and more efficient than roller type chain devices.
