Shimano XT Shadow Rear Derailleur (RD-M772)


Clearance Price$$89.99


SHIMANO XT Shadow Rear Derailleur (RD-M772) - As Mountain Bikes continue to become more diverse, components must evolve - Deore XT addresses the needs of today’s riders just like it did when it was first introduced back in 1982 as the world’s first MTB group. Revolutionary new designs complement the latest evolution of traditional designs to give you the right choice for your riding style.

SHIMANO SHADOW RD: Low profile design intended to give more clearance when negotiating narrow terrain, for more aggressive riding.

  • Quiet: will not contact chain stay.
  • Super low profile design carries many benefits.
  • Because of its low profile and single tension construction = no hitting chain stay in rough conditions.
  • The result is smooth and silent performance.

The Shimano XT RD-M772 Shadow rear derailleur will work seemlessly with all Shimano LX, XT and XTR components. Narrow Hyper Glide design delivers consistent shifting on 9-speed cassettes.


  • Low profile for improved durability
  • Low profile design saves RD from damage in a narrow passage.
  • Direct route cabling reduces the risk of snagging.
  • Stronger return spring for more crisp shifting feeling
  • Capacity : SGS 45T

SHIMANO XT Shadow Rear Derailleur (RD-M772) 4.7 5 3 3
XT Shadow Cages I replaced my ancient LX RD after I broke it with the XT Shadow. I went for the long cage version which is 100mm pin to pin on the jockey wheels compared with the 87mm on my old LX. I am using my LX shifter as well, I haven't noticed a huge difference in shifting because the rest of the drive train is worn out. Certainly a nice piece of gear though. 2 December 2009
SHIMANO XT Rear Derailleur (RD-M772) I have fitted this gear on my bike and working pretty well so far. I would recommended anyone that wants to upgrade their bike gears then this is the one to pick. 1 October 2009
XT Shadow rocks Super smooth, easy install and outperforms my previous XT with a stiffer spring and better use of space. The cable butt is hidden away from catching loose gear and my entire rear hub is now the same width as my frame. No protrusion means I can forget about allowing space in the tight turns or cut-off log passes, even on the smallest cog it is level with the frame. I run it with an LX Shifter and it works great. Recommend this to anyone wanting to get faster shifts, I didn't even have to tune it! 2 September 2009
