The SLX rear derailleur RD-M7000-11 by Shimano - optimal function for 11-speed drivetrains

The Shimano SLX RD-M7000-11 rear derailleur with a shorter GS cage has been designed for 2x11-speed drivetrains (11-42 cassette) and 1x11-speed drivetrains (11-46 cassette). It impresses with greatly reduced operating forces and a flat profile with optimised angle of attack for even greater safety on the trail. Of course, the RD-M7000-11 also features the Shadow Plus stabiliser, which counteracts chain slapping and chain dropping. It thus occupies a central position in the Dyna-Sys11 system designed for precise, smooth gear changes. The cages of the rear derailleur are made of robust steel.

The real advantage of 11-speed is the ability to have all the range you require without sacrificing the rhythm you need. Dyna-Sys11 maximizes rhythm while driving and climbing with " Rhythm Step" gears in the most frequently used range. Driving efficiency is a key drivetrain performance indicator. Dyna-Sys11 means more speed for the same effort.

Shadow RD+
Less distraction, quiet drivetrain. Rear derailleur stabilizer, reduces chain slap. Simple solution for chain drop. Lighter and more efficient than roller type chain device.

Good price/performance, works good, reliable shifting, robust (survives rock strikes without problems). Buy this if you don't need 12 gears :)
4 stars because sometimes you have to adjust/clean clutch.

I'm using this derailleur on my gravel bike instead of the more pricey GRX and, if you're into brisk riding over rutted terrain, I would absolutely recommend this (whit an adaptor).

The only not excellent thing is: if you're using a 42 teeth largest sprocket you need to use a lot of B tension and the shift out of this gear is somewhat laborious. Consider using a 40 instead.
This is not the case for a comparable, but more expensive, XT M8000.
