Shimano Deore XT Shadow Rear Derailleur Direct Mount (Long Cage)
Shimano's Deore XT Shadow Rear Derailleur is perfect for today's aggressive, all-mountain bikes with rear through axles. The Direct Mount uses less parts and provides a solid connection to your machine. The Shadow design means it's super-low profile; it barely protrudes more than the bike's rear stays. A strong spring keeps the body stable when blasting through technical terrain and yields a firm, crisp shifting feel. And of course, shifting is spot-on thanks to the direct cable routing that also reduces the chance of the cable snagging on branches and shrubs.
