Shimano's Deore XT Shadow + Rear Derailleur is perfect for today's aggressive, all-mountain riding. The radical design means that the Shadow is super-low profile; it barely protrudes more than the bike's rear stays. The Plus part is a lever-actuated clutch that drastically reduces chain slap for less noise and better gear engagement. Plus, a stronger spring keeps the body more stable when blasting through technical terrain and yields a firm, crisp shifting feel. The redesigned mount keeps the derailleur body from contacting your chainstay and reduces chatter so you just concentrate on the best line.
Largest cog this derailleur can handle: 36 tooth
