Shimano XT is the bang for your buck groupset. With 90% of the performance of XTR at 50% of the price, it’s hard to go past such value for money. The RD-M772 uses the Shadow design to create a rear derailleur with a lower profile than previously available. It sits tucked up against your frame as much as possible to reduce the risk of catching it on a rock or stick.
The ultra-low profile Shimano Deore XT derailleur with Shimano Shadow RD technology saving up to 12mm.
The low profile design is intended for more aggressive riding. The derailleur will not contact the chain stays, thus it's super quiet. The super low profile design carries many benefits. It performs smooth and silent under all conditions and it offers improved durability. The low profiles desin saves the RD from damage in narrow passages. Direct routing reduces the risk of snagging. A stronger return spring results in a more crisp shifting feeling.
Designed for Rapidfire and compatible shifters.
The shadow rear derailleur RD-M772 is designed for 11-32 or 11-34 cassette sprocket combinations only. In case of using it with other cassette sprocket combinations, the shifting performance is not proper.
