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

      Comments about Shimano XTR M986 Rear Derailleur:

      This was the factory derailleur on my bike. It wore out so I replaced it with the same. Shifts are quick and precise.
      I would give it 5 stars if it were more durable. After a few seasons it got sloppy and needed to be replaced.

        Broke my other XTR derailleur when a stick got wrapped in my spokes. I just pulled the trigger on an exact replacement. Maybe would choose a lower end model in the future to save some $$.

        Great rail. Perfect for a 1x10 setup with the clutch.

              I know that the clutch is a big feature but unless your doing some downhill or serious trail riding Ie; Chain slapping stuff it shifts nicer with the clutch off I found this out from my mech . so if you own this derailleur or the XT and your just going to the market try riding without the clutch engaged and see what you think.

                      Love the Shadow feature. No chain slap is such a plus. And its XTR so it shifts perfect.

                        I put this is on my newly aquired recumbent Catrike Expedition do to some back issues. The trike had thumb shifters so I switched over to the 9 speed XTR off my mountain bike did not work as well as I would have liked. So I bit the bullet and purchased this 10 speed XTR Derailleur . I now have 400 miles on trike and with proper shifting devices it operates flawlessly with length of chain that is on a recumbent 3 chains lengths just thing what it would do with only 1 chain length.
