Wolf Tooth Goatlink 10Speed

Lindarets x Wolf Tooth GoatLink

The Lindarets x Wolf Tooth GoatLink is simply the fastest route to improved wear and long-term shifting performance on wide-range one-by-ten drivetrains.

Conceived by Lindarets and developed with Wolf Tooth Components, the GoatLink improves chain wrap and reduces premature shifting degradation by replacing the Direct Mount link from compatible Shimano ten-speed rear derailleurs. We manufacture all the GoatLinks right in our Minnesota machine shops where our other products are made.

The US-made GoatLink installs in moments with little more than a 5mm Allen wrench. In most cases, the stock link can be removed and the GoatLink installed without the need for chain removal or additional cable or housing.

The GoatLink is optimized for use with Wolf Tooth’s 40- and 42-tooth Giant Cogs and all sizes of Drop-Stop chainrings- but will work with any 11-40t or 11-42t ten-speed cassette. The GoatLink is compatible with 2013 or later Shimano ten-speed Shadow+ rear derailleurs that make use of the 8mm Direct Mount intermediate link to mount to standard derailleur hangers. Direct Mount-native frames and SRAM rear derailleurs are not supported.

Chain Wrap at 11t:

  • 40t: Improved by 69%
  • 42t: Improved by 53%

Free Chain at 11t:

  • 40t: Improved by 25%
  • 42t: Improved by 19%

Note: Due to variations in derailleur hanger geometry, chainstay length, chainring size, B-screw adjustment, and suspension configuration, individual results will vary. You will NEVER need a longer B-screw when using a GoatLink!

The Goat Link installed quite easily, and it works very well on the work-stand. Chain wrap is noticeably improved. I haven't ridden with it yet because we are in the midst of Minnesota winter, and I don't ride on ice anymore. Winter is fettling season, as the Brits would say.

Bought this to fix shifting problems with a 1x10 setup using an XTR Shadow Plus derailleur and Wolftooth 42T cog. It didn't make any difference. Shifts were still slow and inconsistent. I was about to give up on the Wolftooth cog, but found the Oneup RADr cage and thought I would give it one last attempt. The RADr cage worked. Shifts are now quick and crisp. I did leave the Goatlink on so I am running that and the RADr cage at the same time. I can't comment on whether the RADr cage would have worked by itself, but I can say that the Goatlink did not. Even though it does have a cool name and attractive design.

Works well!

Comments about Wolf Tooth Components Wolf Tooth Goatlink 10Speed:

Alright so...I have no frame of reference because I didn't ride with the stock link at all but...right out of the gate, with this installed on an xt 10 speed derailleur and a 42T Wolftooth Cog, shifting was flawless. Also, the stock B-tension screw did not need to be replaced. In summary, this thing appeared to make the XT derailleur work with 42T cog and make the shifting feel no different than stock.

Comments about Wolf Tooth Components Wolf Tooth Goatlink 10Speed:

I ride 12 miles on the road to and from my favored MTB spot so I like wide range gearing. The Goatlink gives me serviceable 3x10 gearing with a 22/40 low and a 40/11 high. Was thinking about 11 speed M8000, which does the same range, but this is less expensive, works well, and the M8000 and M9000 3x FDs only come in side swing, which doesn't play well with my cable routing. Good product.

Worked great for my Shimano Deore 1x10 setup

By Scott

Verified Buyer

Comments about Wolf Tooth Components Wolf Tooth Goatlink 10Speed:

I was having issues with my chain slipping on the smaller cogs on my cassette. The goatlink gives more chain wrappage so I could let out my b-limit screw. It's still not perfect, but my chain only slips on one cog now instead of 3 or 4. Totally worth the price for me.

Must have for converting to sun race 11-42

By HRCR

from CR

Verified Buyer

Comments about Wolf Tooth Components Wolf Tooth Goatlink 10Speed:

Running xt shadow plus medium cage on 2015 stache. Installed the sun race cassette to convert to 1x10 but chain was slipping on the 42t when under heavy load. Installed this into the derailleur and instantly fixed the problem. It's pricey for a tiny piece of machined aluminum, but it's cheaper than a new mech and does exactly what it is suppose to.

    The product works well and does exactly as intended. With a SLX RDR 10-speed 11/42 cassette still a smidge sluggish in the smaller cogs but on the trail almost unnoticeable.
