The newest incarnation of the XTR rear derailleur features Shimano’s new direct mount option that positions the rear derailleur in a way that protects it from hitting rocks or other obstacles, creates a stiffer shifting platform, and makes rear wheel changes faster and easier. It also comes equipped with Shadow Plus clutch technology that effectively eliminates chain slap and reduces the chances of dropping your chain. With these new upgrades, the XTR group continues to push the standard for top of the line mountain components trusted by pros and every day riders alike.
  • For 10 spd drivetrains
  • Compatible with standard dropouts and new Direct Mount dropouts
  • Shadow Plus Clutch technology
  • Carbon fiber outer plate
  • Weight:214g

      Comments about Shimano XTR M986 Rear Derailleur:

      As with almost everything XTR - it is not a need.
      If I had a bike outfitted with XT, I would not be motivated to upgrade. In this instance, the entire drive train was being replaced and the difference in price between the XT & XTR was not significant due to a sale. It works as advertised and looks great. The new clutch system seems to be working quite nicely.

        Swap my XT rear derailleur for this XTR. I'm very happy I did. Gear change is as smooth and reliable as you'd expect from an XTR product. You pay more but you get more.

            The Shadow Plus clutch worked perfectly with my XX1 conversion. Raced and all-around trained with no chain throw issues, no chain guard needed on my XX1 cranks and chainring. Absolutely recommend this for 1x10 if not going for 1x11.

                I find this product to be very good. It shifts amazing and keeps chain slap down. It is easy to adjust the small clutch assembly and does what is advertised. Only downside is the cost, but for top notch tech you have to pay.
