Shimano XTR M972 Shadow Rear Derailleur

5/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $160.99

Product Description

Efficiency was the key principle when designing the XTR M980 10-speed rear derailleur. The derailleur was designed with Shimano's Shadow technology, using a longer swing arm and a tighter spring for crisper shifting when you want it, and less 'ghost shifting' when you don't.

Strengths:    Beautifully made and shifts like a dream...

Weaknesses:    None so far...

Bottom Line:   
I was rebuilding my friend's drive train and he wanted a 34 tooth large
cassette gear. His old XT derailleur just couldn't it handle so, I installed
this little beauty which I had purchased from my LBS during a fire sale
(literally) a couple of years ago. Super easy to install and snapped off
perfect shifts every time. Needless to say he's happy. Just hope he
doesn't whack the carbon cage on a rock though...
