Shimano XT RD-M8130 Linkglide Rear Derailleur 11-Speed Long Cage

Product Details

The Linkglide drivetrain has been specially developed for e-bikes and punishing applications in the touring and MTB sector. The rear derailleur features the tried-and-tested Shadow Plus design, which opens up plenty of scope for off-road riding, and not just because of its low profile. It also prevents chain slap and counteracts chain drop thanks to the built-in stabilizer. The M8130 has a long cage and you can use it to shift a Linkglide cassette with a maximum of 50 teeth.

Please note that there is no compatibility with non-Linkglide shifters due to the different cable ratio.

  • Smooth, defined shifting in the Linkglide system
