Shimano Deore XT M786 Shadow Plus 10 Speed Rear Derailleur
Designed to take abuse in stride.
With the RD-M786 Rear Derailleur, Shimano has refined shifting in all trail conditions, borrowing features from last year's XTR group, while adding compatibility with new direct mount frames.
The direct mount system allows the derailleur to sit about 25mm further back than previous designs, where it's less exposed to impacts along the trail. It also creates a stiffer interface between the derailleur and frame and allows for faster wheel changes, particularly on bikes using thru-axle systems. A pre-installed B-link allows for back compatibility with traditional derailleur hangers.
Another new feature is the XTR-derived Shadow Plus stabilizer switch which can be enabled to increase spring tension and eliminate chain slap. The low profile design allows the cage to easily clear obstacles like roots and rocks, and a longer arm length results in great mechanical mechanical advantage, essentially giving the shifter more control over the derailleur spring for crisp, reliable gear changes. Sealed pulley bearings keep out mud, dirt and grime.
The Deore XT RD-M786 Rear Derailleur is designed for Shimano Dyna-Sys 10-speed MTN drivetrains/shifters. Available in Mid-Cage or Long-Cage models. Black or silver finish.
