Shimano's Deore XT Rear Derailleur is ready for the rigors of off-road riding and racing with a lightweight aluminum body and low-friction pivots for incredibly easy and smooth shifting. And the XT features 11-tooth pulleys, which alternate chain-link contact reducing wear and smoothing pedaling.

Features & Info

Chain-wrap capacity: up to 45 teeth. Click for an explanation of chain-wrap capacity.

An important part of a rear derailleur's job is keeping the chain taut as you change gears. Chain-wrap capacity is a number that tells whether or not a derailleur will be able to do this on the drivetrain you plan to use it on. Calculate chain-wrap capacity with this formula: Chain-wrap capacity = (large chainring - small chainring) + (large rear cog - small rear cog). Example: 44/29 chainrings and a 11-28 cassette: (44 - 29 = 15) + (28 - 11 = 17) = 32-tooth chain-wrap capacity.
Largest cog this derailleur can handle: 34 tooth
Weight: 235 grams

Great price, I bought 2 of them. Its something you don't think about, when the deraileur goes out or gets tired replace it with another XT. It shifts great right out of the box (or bag as these guys sell them). Wheelworld sells these OEM XT's and thats why theyre so cheap. It doesnt come with any box, insructions or anything. But its like a toothbrush, something you already know, unless youre a newbie.
