Introducing the Shimano Shadow Rear Derailleur Like the latest XTR, options are the emphasis of the new Deore XT. The debut of the Shimano Shadow RD yields a third rear derailleur option, joining the Top-Normal and Low-Normal versions. A Shadow RD places priority on a low profile design and less body movement for those enthusiasts that are most at home on extreme technical trails.
Top normal spring design to mesh with the more common choice of RapidFire shifters for trail / all-mountain riding
In high gear, the derailleur has a profile that is a full 15mm less than a traditional rear derailleur. That means it barely protrudes more than the quick release skewer nut.
Direct cable routing reduces the chance of the cable snagging on roots and rocks.
Stronger spring keeps the derailleur body more stable in rough terrain.
Redesigned bracket axle keeps the derailleur body from contacting the chainstay.
Available in medium and long cage
Note: M772 Shadow rear derailleurs are only designed for 11-32t and 11-34t cassettes
