MTB Rear Derailleurs
The modern mountain bike rear derailleur must stand up to a whole heap of abuse. Not only do they have to deal with internet forums screaming for bike’s with gearboxes rather than derailleurs, but they also have to cope with some of the most testing conditions and expectations. MTB Rear Derailleurs must shift smoothly under load, even when covered in mud and grit, all while being able to withstand some substantial knocks from trailside debris. With modern clutch-type derailleurs, they’re also expected to help keep your chain in place over rough ground as well.
Fair to say then, that MTB Rear Derailleurs take a lot of abuse. Thankfully the wonder of trickle-down technology has meant that modern rear derailleurs are tough, smooth shifting and often great value. Constant evolution also means that the very best is even better than ever, so no matter what rear derailleur you need for your mountain bike, you can be sure it’s up to the task.
