Shimano XT RD-M8000 11 Speed Rear Derailleur
The long-awaited Shimano XT 11 speed drivetrain has made its grand entrance, and here is the rear derailleur in the group. The Shadow Plus rear derailleurs are designed to minimise shifting effort, with external adjustability and increased clutch tension range. They have also been designed with a very low profile, to help you clear hazards on the trail.
Featuring Shimano's innovative Shadow RD + technology and a refined geometry, the Deore XT M8000 11-speed rear derailleur is designed to reign authority over today's aggressive style of trail and all-mountain riding.

The easy-to-adjust chain stabilizer makes it quick and effortless to dial in the perfect amount of stability for varying conditions and terrain.
