DEORE XT is one of the most successful groups of Shimano. With the latest and completely revised version of the DEOREXT Group, the Japanese manufacturer takes your shifting performance to a new level. The new XT group meets the most diverse requirements of cross-country bikers, trail bike fans or enduro racers equally convincingly and presents itself as the most universal high-performance shifting group from the Japanese experts.
The DEORE XT RD-M8000 rear derailleur has optimised SHADOW+ technology with a flat angle of attack and an extremely flat profile to keep sensitive components out of the danger zone. The shifting capacity was optimised for diagonally running chains using newly designed pulleys. You also have the option of setting the mechanism for minimum operating forces or maximum stability. The DEORE XT derailleur enables precise and lightning-fast gear changes when you need them and guides the chain safely - even on the roughest trails. Enduro fans can also do without an additional chain guide because the Shimano Clutch System keeps the chain under high tension.
The new DEORE XT rear derailleur is suitable for regular double use due to its large capacity as well as for bikers who only want to get by with one front chainring and 11 sprockets on the rear wheel.
