Shimano XTR M985 E-Type 2x10 Front Mech

If you expect every bit as much out of your equipment as you invest in your training, then you’re in the right place. The new XTR Race group doesn’t just ask to be pushed at race pace, it demands it.

A key element in Shimano's legendary front shifting performance, the latest XTR front derailleur continues to lead the way with flexible mounting options and easy access fasteners.

Features:

  • The latest Dyna-Sys 10-speed shifting technology is employed in the XTR M985 front derailleur to ensure precise and reliable chain movement - the elite racer's choice!
  • XTR front pivot link is wide with hollow pins for an increase in rigidity and giving a faster, more responsive shift
  • Easy reach stop screws and retention band bolt, ideal for suspension frame designs where access is restricting
  • Pinch bolt is both hex key and spanner compatible for accessibility on all frame designs
  • Light alloy cage reduces weight and improves performance, nickel-plated finish prevents chain wear
  • Developed specifically for double 40-44T chainsets
  • Bottom bracket mounting system
  • Special design allows derailleur to be used with top or bottom pull cable routing
  • Top swing design
  • Dyna-Sys 10-speed design - for use with Dyna-Sys 10-speed drivetrains

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product, shame CRC didn't state it was BULK/OEM First this is a great item, and my review would have been 5 stars, deducted a star as CRC did not state that this was a bulk/oem plastic bag package not full retail. Much better then the SRAM X9 it replaced with much tighter linkages then the X9 ever had, has completely sorted all the FD issues I was having. 20 June 2014
