Shimano XTR M972 Shadow Rear Derailleur

Shimano XTR Shadow Rear Derailleur

Shimano has again refined their XTR rear derailleur but making it part of the “shadow” family. What this means is that it’s 11mm – 18mm smaller than its predecessor and it is significantly thinner than previous models. The result is a very light weight derailleur. Carbon fiber + size reduction = a 182g derailleur. The XTR is a lightweight derailleur that shifts like butter. Did we mention that it also looks awesome?


  • Low profile for improved durability
  • Low profile design saves RD from damage in a narrow passage.
  • Direct routing reduces the risk of snagging.
  • Stronger return spring for more crisp shifting feeling
  • Capacity : GS 33T, SGS 45T

Looking to save some weight, pick up the Shimano XTR M972 Shadow Rear Derailleur here for $154.

Shimano Deore XT M770 Front Derailleur

Incase you are looking to swap out your front derailleur (maybe you should watch out for the rocks), here is a solid front derailleur for only $35.  This isn’t as light as the XTR and it doesn’t have quite the same cutting edge performance, but this is still a great performing front derailleur. Shimano has continued to innovate and have taken off  18g compared to the old XT from the 760 series, bringing the Shimano Deore XT Front Derailleur in at  152 grams. As part of the refinement of this fine piece of machinery, the XT’s adjustment screws have been angled out so that they are more easily accessible with a screw driver.
