Product Description

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 axel sizes and move suspension pivots.

Key Features:
  • Direct Mount gives a simpler, cleaner look
  • Deore XT Shadow Dyna-Sys11 11-speed rear derailleur delivers reliable and precise shifting with a stiff and lightweight open design
  • Shadow features a super low profile design that reduces the risk of damage from trail side hazards
  • The shadow plus chain stabilizer tension can easily be adjusted externally via a hex key
  • 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 wheelShadow design slant angle has been optimized for use with 40-42T sprockets
  • 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
  • High rigidity wide outer link braces the pulley body to increase pivot joint rigidity resulting in a crisp shift
  • Strong return spring for a positive shifting feel
  • Durable sealed bearing pulleys
  • 40T (42T for 1x 11-speed) capacity GS cage

Derailleur/Mech Guide

What are derailleurs and mechs?

Derailleurs and mechs are two names for the same thing – the parts of your drive train that move the chain between chainrings for the front derailleur/mech and between the cassette cogs for the rear derailleur/mech.

Who needs a derailleur or mech?

Not all bikes have derailleurs, but if your bike has conventional gearing rather than singlespeed or hub gears, you will have at least a rear derailleur. These parts are exposed and somewhat vulnerable to damage, so you may need to replace them if this happens.

What are the choices?

Your choice will largely depend on what is compatible with the rest of your drivetrain, but there are different options for road and mountain bike, by the big three manufacturers, Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo.

What should I buy with them?

If you’re replacing a front or rear mech, you may need to replace some other parts of your drivetrain as well, for compatibility or because you want them to wear together. These might include the chainrings, rear cassette or chain.

Anything else?

It’s not just compatibility with your other components you need to consider with a mech replacement. Derailleurs also have different fittings for various frame compatibilities, including braze-on fittings and a bolt-on collar.
