The Goatlink 11 replaces the link piece in Shimano 11 speed MTB mechs to give smoother running with wide-ratio cassettes.
The Goatlink 11 is designed to give better positioning to Shimano XT M8000 and XTR M9000 when used with the Sram 10-42t cassettes. Not "works ok" but "works as you'd expect from top notch Shimano kit"They've also future proofed the Goatlink 11, giving compatibility with up to a 46t.Here's what Lindarets have to say:"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 10-44t and 11-45t cassettes. So now you too can have it all: ideal performance from 10-42t XD cassettes and wide-range capability for bigger days.Each GoatLink is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum, anodized, and laser etched at Wolf Tooth Components' Minneapolis facility. Our second-generation design does away with the B-tab pin and comes fitted with our proven stainless steel bolt."
