Shimano Deore XT M8000 Shadow+ 11-Speed Rear Derailleur

With its Shadow Plus chain stabiliser and its direct mount fitting, Shimano continue to improve what is probably the most respected rear mech in mountain bike history.

  • The Deore XT Shadow Dyna-Sys11 11-speed rear derailleur delivers reliable and precise shifting
  • This derailleur is optimized for use with wide range cassettes up to 48t for today's 1x11 and 2x11 transmissions
  • Shadow refers to the super low profile design, which doesn't protrude as much as traditional gear mechs so reduces the risk of damage from trail side hazards
  • Shadow Plus refers to the chain stabilising switch that reduces chain bounce over rough terrain to maintain smooth shifting and drivetrain stability
  • The chain stabiliser tension can easily be adjusted externally with an Allen key
  • The chain stabilising switch can be switched off to facilitate wheel removal
  • Direct Mounting is cleaner, simpler and more durable
  • Direct Mount makes for easier wheel fitting and removal
  • Direct cable routing prevents snagging from any trail side hazards
  • Four fluorine-coated link pin bushings make this one of the slickest shifting derailleurs on the trails
  • The derailleur's extra wide super rigid link braces the pulley body to increase pivot joint rigidity and promote crisp shifting
  • Strong return spring for positive shifting feel
  • Durable sealed bearing pulleys
  • Wide 40t capacity (46t for 1x 11-speed)
  • Maximum recommended large cog size: 48t

'Shimano's Direct Mount compatible rear derailleur system 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.'
