We wanted it all: 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 XT and 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. So now you too can have it all:  ideal performance from 10-42t XD cassettes and wide-range capability for bigger days. Compatibility:       Cassette    Compatibility 11-40     Not Required 11-42     Not Required 11-45     GS/SGS Derailleur 11-46     GS/SGS Derailleur 10-42     GS/SGS Derailleur 10-44     GS/SGS Derailleur (Wolf Tooth GCX44) 10-45     Not Optimized 9-44       Not Optimized Other notes: The GoatLink 11 is compatible with M8000 (XT) and M9000 (XTR) series eleven-speed Shimano rear derailleurs. The GoatLink 11 mounts only to standard derailleur hangers. Double chainrings (2x) is supported and requires a long cage (SGS) rear derailleur with no more than a 12t difference in front chainrings (with an 11-46 cassette). Triple chainrings are not supported. Direct Mount-native frames and SRAM derailleurs are not supported. Complimenting Products: GCX44 and GCX42 Drop stop chainrings Technical Details: Improvements with the GoatLink 11* In table form: Free Chain in bottom cog (unsupported chain  - shorter is better and will increase shifting precision): 10-42t:Improved by 99% 10-44t: Improved by 32% 10-45t: Improved by 28% 11-45t: Improved by 36% 11-46t: Improved by 32% 9-44t: Improved by 26% Chain Wrap in bottom cog: 10-42t: Improved by 27% 10-44t: Reduced by 9% 10-45: Reduced by 7% 11-45t: Reduced by 8% 11-46t: Improved by 12% 9-44t: Reduced by 8% Summary in plot form - movement towards the red X is in the direction of goodness (more chain wrap and less free chain) Weight: 19g Material 7075-T6 Stainless Steel mounting hardware included Manufactured in Minnesota, USA *Due to variations in derailleur hanger geometry, chainstay length, chainring size, B-screw adjustment, and suspension configuration, individual results will vary slightly
