PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

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.

You just can't go wrong with XT components. This derailleur performs in all conditions and hasn't let me down yet. The shifting takes a little getting used to as it is harder to push than a standard non-plus derailleur, but the reduced noise and chain slap is well worth the extra effort.

This is an excellent product. Don't waste your time with the "non plus" version unless you LOVE the sound of the chain destroying your frame. The plus system is excellent and the 10spd platform is perfect for 1x10 adventures.

No dropped chains paired with a raceface nw ring. Smooth shifting, reliable. I've heard about issues with the clutch failing but so far so good. I just keep a close eye on it. I've heard you can relube them if it looks like it needs it to help with the clutch issues.

The XT is in my opinion the best bang for the buck in the Shimano line. The clutch makes dropped chains a thing of the past

Great shifting, but faulty clutch - Apr 02, 2014

I purchased this derailleur to replace a SRAM X9 that had lost spring tension after a couple of years. The difference was night and day, the XT plus eliminated a lot of noise, and shifted reliably every time. There were no dropped chains or ghost shifts to speak of. After one year in service, I noticed that the shifting performance took a turn for the worse. I removed the clutch cover and found a broken piece, which controls the friction. Apparently this is a known issue with the "Plus" series derailleurs. It was replaced under warranty, so no hard feelings on my side. The shifting is now as precise as ever. Nonetheless, I have to knock one star off for durability.

No chain slap?! - Sep 10, 2013

Getting a Shimano "Plus" rear derailleur is easily one of the best upgrades to make these days. The clutch system is absolutely amazing. It completely silences the chain slap which is hard to believe until you try it. The Dynasys shifting is spot-on and very responsive. I'd recommend the medium cage if running this on a 1x setup.
