Details

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.

An important part of a rear derailleur's job is keeping the chain taut as you change gears. Chain-wrap capacity is a number that tells whether or not a derailleur will be able to do this on the drivetrain you plan to use it on. Calculate chain-wrap capacity with this formula: Chain-wrap capacity = (large chainring - small chainring) + (large rear cog - small rear cog). Example: 44/29 chainrings and a 11-28 cassette: (44 - 29 = 15) + (28 - 11 = 17) = 32-tooth chain-wrap capacity.

Comments:

Upgraded my older XTR Shadow derailleur (no clutch spring) to this XT Shadow Plus design so I can eliminate chain slap, and this does the job. It is a bit heavier than my previous derailleur but the few extra grams is worth having a chain that stays put!
