Shimano's Rider Tuned philosophy is on display with SLX M7000, as the group offers a broad spectrum of drivetrain range options, and supports the latest trail and recreational bikes with bigger tires, wider hub flange spacing or both. New Shimano SLX M7000 has been redesigned from the ground up to perform in any trail situation.
The rear derailleur RD-M7000 was totally redesigned and incorporates premium features from XTR and DEORE XT. It features Shimano Shadow RD+ technology and a refined geometry for increased stability. The long cage 10-speed rear derailleur (RD-M7000-10-SGS) offer a larger drivetrain capacity of 43-teeth to accommodate its triple chainring. The medium cage 11-speed rear derailleur (RD-M7000-11-GS) offer a drivetrain capacity of 41-teeth.
The RD-M7000-GS Shadow Plus rear derailleur is only compatible with 10-speed Dyna-Sys shifting components. Only for use with super narrow HG-X chains for 10-speed.
