The Shimano XT M8100 12 speed rear derailleur is relatively light, durable and shifts very smoothly. This derailleur incorporates the same technology as the XTR rear derailleur. This XT derailleur has a much better price point however!
The shifting of the Shimano XT M8100 is very large. Shimano has developed a new shifting technique, which allows you to shift even more smoothly in many daredevils on the pedals and under extreme conditions. This technique is called Shimano Hyperglide+.
Besides very smooth shifting, Shimano focuses on durability and performance in the XT M8100 group. This is also reflected in the materials used. The XTR M9100 rear derailleur contains a lot of carbon and other light materials, but the XT M8100 rear derailleur prefers steel and aluminium. This increases the durability and decreases the price of the XT M8100 derailleur. The only disadvantage is that the XT version is heavier than the XTR version, but few people will notice this difference.
In short, if you are looking for a 12 speed rear derailleur with excellent performance, low weight, and great durability, then this Shimano XT M8100 rear derailleur is for you. This derailleur has the same techniques as an XTR rear derailleur, but will last a lot longer due to the more durable materials. With this derailleur you have a lot of nice forest rides ahead of you!
