Wolf Tooth GoatLink Range Extender for Rear Derailleurs - black - 11-speed

Wolf Tooth GoatLink Range Extender for Rear Derailleurs - black - 11-speed

Note: Delivery includes only the GoatLink 11. Other products shown are solely for illustrative purposes and are not supplied.


Lindarets and Wolf Tooth Components have teamed up to optimize Shimano 11-speed XT and XTR derailleurs for use with SRAM XD cassettes. When used with a 10-42t cassette, the GoatLink 11 re-positions M8000 XT and M9000 XTR rear derailleurs such that free chain is within 1% of what Shimano intended while engagement is improved by 27%.

The GoatLink 11 also significantly improves Shimano 11s rear derailleur performance with extended-range 10-44t and 11-45t cassettes. It provides ideal performance from 10-42t XD cassettes and wide-range capability for bigger days.

Each GoatLink is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum, anodized, and laser etched at Wolf Tooth Components' Minneapolis facility.

The GoatLink 11 is compatible with M8000 (XT) and M9000 (XTR) series 11-speed Shimano rear derailleurs. The GoatLink 11 mounts only to standard derailleur hangers.

Note: Triple chainrings are not supported. Double chainrings (2x) are supported and require a long cage (SGS) rear derailleur with no more than a 12t difference in front chainrings (with an 11-46 cassette). Direct Mount-native frames and SRAM derailleurs are not supported.

All improvements are based on nominal Shimano-specification derailleur hanger geometry. An unmodified Shimano rear derailleur adjusted for the specified cassette serves as the baseline (0%), and an unmodified rear derailleur adjusted for a 40t top cog as the target (100%).

Due to variations in derailleur hanger geometry, chainstay length, chainring size, B-screw adjustment, and suspension configuration, individual results will vary. You will NEVER need a longer B-screw when using a GoatLink!

Note: For M8000 (XT) and M9000 (XTR) series 11-speed Shimano rear derailleurs only!
