WOLFTOOTH GOATLINK 11 DERAILLEUR
The GoatLink 11 hanger extension offsets the position of your 11-speed Shimano mountain bike rear derailleur allowing you to be able to run a wider range cassette while improving importance.
Same ergonomics and reliability of Shimano shifters and derailleurs
Gear range, simplicity and quietness of SRAM 1x11 drivetrain
High-performance and lightweight
This project began with the desire to run 11-speed Shimano derailleurs and shifters with SRAM 10-42t XD cassettes. Granted the combination¬†can¬†work without modification - but performance wasn't quite what we'd expect from Shimano and SRAM's finest.
When used with a 10-42t cassette, the GoatLink 11¬†re-positions SLX M7000, XT M8000 and XTR M9000 rear derailleurs such that free chain length between the cassette and the top derailleur pulley is within 1% of what Shimano intended while cassette tooth engagement in the smallest cog is improved by 27%.
Knowing that certain situations call for a range beyond that provided 10-42t or 11-42t cassettes,¬†we tweaked the GoatLink 11 to also significantly improve Shimano 11spd rear derailleur performance with extended-range like the¬†Wolf Tooth GCX44¬†modified 10-44t¬†XX1 or X01 cassette.
