The XT rear derailleur RD-M8000 by Shimano - easier to use


The Shimano XT RD-M8000 rear derailleur features a Shadow Plus mechanism that allows you to switch between maximum chain stability and minimum operating forces. The extremely low profile and the flat angle of attack also benefit safety on difficult, narrow trails. In addition, compared to its predecessors, the RD-M8000 knows how to handle a slanted chain better and has larger derailleur pulley teeth for even smoother shifting performance. In the Dyna-Sys11 system, it thus performs its service efficiently and permanently. Both cages of the rear derailleur are made of lightweight aluminium. The shorter version (GS) is compatible with 1x11 and 2x11-speed gears and cassettes up to 46 or 42 teeth. In the long version (SGS) it can also be used for 3x11-speed drivetrains with an 11-40 cassette.

Technology:


Dyna-Sys11
The real advantage of the 11-speed drivetrain is that the entire range of ratios is available without having to give up the usual rhythm. Dyna-Sys11 ensures optimal rhythm on flat ground as well as on climbs with " Rhythm Step" gears in the most used range. Drive efficiency is a critical performance indicator for the drivetrain. Dyna-Sys11 means more speed with the same effort.

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.
