Shimano XT M772 Shadow 9 Speed Rear Derailleur
As Mountain bikes continue to become more diverse, obviously components must evolve. New Shimano Deore XT addresses the various needs of today's riders. Together with double rear derailleur "Shimano Shadow RD" was specially designed for all mountain riding. Together with double-servo-panta mechanism derailleurs now, you have the right choices for several off road styles. New XT disc brake with a new level of performance and controllability, features high power braking. "Engineered for the way you ride". With the same concept as XTR, new Deore XT is born.
"SHIMANO SHADOW RD": low profile design intended for more aggressive riding. Quiet : will not contact chain stay. Super low profile design carries many benefits. Because of its low profile and single tension construction, no hit to chain stay in rough riding conditions.The result is smooth and silent performance.
Shimano XT M772 Shadow Rear Derailleur features a low profile for improved durability (low profile design saves RD from damage in a narrow passage), direct routing to reduce the risk of snagging, and a stronger return spring for more crisp shifting feeling.

I bought this derailleur to complete my full-XT drive train. I had an SLX and this made a noticeable difference. The finish is beautiful and there is no match for the XT silence that comes from eliminating chain slap on rough rides. It shifts crisply and is easily fine-tuned. I installed and dialed it in myself in less than 20 minutes. Highly recommended.
I've had these derailleurs on several different bikes and always loved them. I honestly don't think I've ever had an issue with the XT other than the occasional tune-up. Upgraded my teenagers bikes to the XT so I wouldn't hear any more whinning about shifting issues while out on the trail. Worth the money!
Silent and precise shifting, light weight, a solid performer and one of the best rear derailleurs on the market
High end performance at a great value. Precision shifting, lightweight, sleek look and easy to install.
