2007 XTR Rear Derailleurs

Product Reviews - New Product Introductions

RD-M970/M971: Rear Derailleurs

Now with two options, the all new XTR derailleurs include two options delivering the compatibility you seek. Why two options with complete interchangeability? Because XTR is engineered for the way you ride:

Top-Normal RD-M971: “The Original”

The industry standard for derailleur design and gravity racers, Top-Normal rear derailleurs offer crisp, clean, derailleur-controlled shifts to harder gears, allowing excellent shifting under heavy load and acceleration – particularly with RapidFire or RapidFire Plus shifters.

Low-Normal RD-M970: “Rapid-Rise”

Low-Normal rear derailleurs offer maximum drivetrain durability and beautifully controlled shifts to lower gears – a clear advantage for XC racers and riders who do a large amount of riding and need maximum reliability. In combination with Dual Control levers, a low-normal rear derailleur enables downshifts from multiple hand positions ensuring that you never get stuck in the wrong gear at the bottom of that steep unexpected climb.
