Wolf Tooth Components - Goat Link 10 & 11 speed

50.00

The Lindarets x Wolf Tooth GoatLink is simply the fastest route to improved wear and long-term shifting performance on wide-range 1x10 drivetrains using the Shimano Shadow+ Rear derailleurs. The GoatLink re-positions 10 speed Shimano Shadow+ Rear derailleurs to the optimal location when using the GC 40T and GC 42T cassette expanders.

Compatibility:

  • Compatible Shimano Shadow+ 10 speed rear derailleurs (clutch type ONLY) have a Direct Mount link (including spacer, if so equipped) or B-pivot knuckle with a thickness of 7.9-8.1mm.  Shimano changed to this sometime in 2013.  Very early Shadow+ rear derailleurs have a thinner link and are not compatible.
    • The ergonomics and reliability of Shimano shifters and derailleurs.  
    • The range, simplicity, light weight, and quiet of a SRAM 1x11 drivetrain.  
    • The performance we have come to expect from each company's top-of-the-range components.
    • After eight months' development, the Lindarets x Wolf Tooth GoatLink 11 delivers.

      This project began with the desire to run 11s 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 M8000 XTand M9000 XTR rear derailleurs such that free chain is within 1% of what Shimano intended while engagement is improved by 27%.

      But we didn't stop there.  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 11s rear derailleur performance with extended-range  like the Wolf Tooth GCX44 modified 10-44t XX1 or X01 cassette.
