The Shimano RD-M8130 XT Rear Derailleur for Linkglide 11-speed Drivetrains

XT RD-M8130 is an 11-speed rear derailleur from Shimano which, in combination with other Linkglide components, ensures very smooth but also very defined gear changes. The Linkglide drivetrain has been specially developed for e-bikes and punishing applications in the touring and MTB sector. The rear derailleur features the tried-and-tested Shadow Plus design, which opens up plenty of scope for off-road riding, and not just because of its low profile. It also prevents chain slap and counteracts chain drop thanks to the built-in stabilizer. The RD-M8130 has a long cage and a total capacity of 39 teeth. You can use it to shift a Linkglide cassette with a maximum of 50 teeth. Please note that there is no compatibility with non-Linkglide shifters due to the different cable ratio.

Guidelines for Replacing E-bike Components:

Before you replace components on your e-bike, please read through the guidelines for component replacement for CE-marked e-bikes/pedelecs with pedal assistance.

Shadow RD+
Shadow Plus rear derailleurs are just as low-profile as Shimano's Shadow rear derailleurs. In addition, a stabilizer with on/off switch is used to reduce chain slap and thus counteract chain drop. At the same time, this results in a quieter drive. Weight is also saved compared to other chain restraint devices.
