Shimano's Deore XT Front Derailleur sports a lightweight aluminum cage that's chrome plated to reduce wear. Plus, the body boasts wide parallel pivots that provide fast, smooth and reliable shifts every time. This is an E-Type derailleur, meaning it mounts to the bottom bracket taking the guesswork out of derailleur mounting on full-suspension, carbon-fiber and non-standard frames.
The dual-pull design allows this derailleur to be used with top- or bottom-pull cable routing.
Note: E-type front derailleurs mount between the bottom bracket shell and the right bottom bracket cup. Your frame must have a mounting braze-on or an adapter clamp.
