The Shimano Deore XT RD-M786 SGS 10 speed shadow plus rear derailleur is a technical marvel, and a real game changer.

Gone are the days of chains slapping everywhere, missed shifts or dropped chains. Engage the mechanism and the return spring instantly tenses, meaning that even if you are not using a lower roller guide on your bike - the chances of losing a chain are greatly reduced - no matter what the terrain.

An added advantage is how quiet the bike will now ride, with only the gnarliest hits causing any real chain deflection.

The derailleur’s strong return spring allows for smoother and more precise shifting and reduces the chances of chain drop and slapping.


  • Shadow-type design features a lower-profile body and bracket with direct cable routing and a stabilizer switch to avoid obstacle contact and minimize chain slap
  • Wide link parallelogram design increases rigidity for excellent, responsive shifting performance; stronger return spring ensures fast, snappy shifts
