Precision engineered the Shimano XTR M972 Shadow Rear Mech is the ultimate in shifting performance and durability - as used by elite off-road racers the world over!

  • Mega 9, 8 & 7 speed compatible
  • Shadow features a super low profile design that reduces the risk of damage from trail side hazards
  • Cold forged alloy links and pivot body's leads to lower weight without compromising strength and durability
  • Four fluorine-coated link pin bushings make this one of the slickest shifting derailleurs on the trails
  • High rigidity wide outer link braces the pulley body to increase pivot joint rigidity resulting in a crisp shift
  • Single tension spring prevents contact with the chainstay resulting in a silent ride
  • Direct cable routing prevents snagging from any trail side hazards
  • Full carbon fibre inner and outer pulley cages
  • Strong return spring for a positive shifting feel
  • Mega 9, 8 & 7 speed compatible
  • Durable sealed bearing pulleys with low friction
  • Top normal spring uses the spring to select higher gears, best suited to use with Rapidfire shifters
  • GS cage should be used with single and double chainsets only


    Condition: B+- Very Good

    This item has been installed on a bike but has seen very little use. The Jockey Wheels are in excellent condition and we would go as far as to say, it would be very difficult to find a 2nd hand M972 in a condition like this anywhere.
