Shimano XT Shadow+ 11-speed rear derailleur delivers reliable and precise shifting with a stiff and lightweight open design.

Shimano's direct mount compatible rear derailleur system gives more space around the rear frame dropout resulting in easier rear wheel removal but also allows frame designers to shorten chain stays, increase axel sizes and move suspension pivots. Direct mount also gives a simpler, cleaner look.

Deore XT Shadow+ 11-speed rear derailleur delivers reliable and precise shifting with a stiff and lightweight open design. Shadow+ features a super low profile design that reduces the risk of damage from trail side hazards.

The shadow plus chain stabilizer tension can easily be adjusted externally via a hex key and uses a chain stabilising switch that when on will reduce chain bounce in rough terrain maintaining more stable drive and shifting. This can be switched off to remove the wheel. Shadow design slant angle has been optimized for use with 40-42T sprockets.

Direct cable routing prevents snagging from any trail side hazards and the high rigidity wide outer link, braces the pulley body to increase pivot joint rigidity resulting in a crisp gear shift.

Four fluorine-coated link pin bushings make this one of the slickest shifting derailleurs on the trails and the strong return spring provides a positive gear shift.

Just as good as XTR a few gms heavier but less than 1/2 the price! This is the most exposed part of your drivechain so get 2 for the price of one XTR
The new Shimano XT M8000 1x11 is excellent. I have been a SRAM 1x11 devotee since it came out (have both XX1 and XO1), but have now moved back to Shimano XT. Shifting is very precise - each shift occurs fast and clear. On one bike I have combined XT rear derailleur with a SRAM 10-44 cassette (as that cassette was already on the wheel) and it works just fine. Other reasons for my conversion: Price - XT much better value Installation - installing and tuning the new XT rear derailleur is a breeze. Especially the tuning: find XX1 and XO1 derailleurs really finicky to tune, but the XT high and low adjustment screws are easy to access and very intuitive to use. Only area where SRAM is really better is their clutch mechanism and wheel removal. I don't take the rear wheel off that often, so not really an issue
