Product Details

Sometimes the difference between cleaning a section or not is a well-timed, perfectly executed shift.

The rear derailleur DEORE XT M8000 receives a complete makeover. The DEORE XT M8000 rear derailleur features Shimano’s optimized SHADOW RD+ technology with a shallow angle and extremely low profile design, reducing shift effort and improving chain stability, resulting in sharp and silky gear changes. Meanwhile new high efficiency pulleys adapted for cross-chain riding feature a taller tooth profile for improved shifting. SHADOW RD+ friction clutch technology from the XTR range has been incorporated with increased ease of adjustment for either maximum stability or lower shift effort. The DEORE XT M8000 rear derailleur is compatible direct mount systems and 1x11 and 2x11 GS or 3x11 SGS set ups.

Specifications

OVERVIEW
  • 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
  • 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 40-46T 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
