Since it was first introduced, this award-winning model has given riders the ability to easily increase the range of their Shimano road bike drivetrains, while also maintaining near-factory levels of chain wrap and shifting operation.
The Wolf Tooth RoadLink derailleur hanger extension offsets the position of your R8000 and R9100 road derailleur making it possible to run a wider mountain bike cassette – ideal if you’re looking to convert to a 1x set up with minimal fuss.
Like the mountain-focused GoatLink, the RoadLink DM replaces Shimano’s stock direct mount link allowing you to relocate the derailleur to provide clearance for larger-than-stock range cassettes while maintaining chain wrap and improving shifting. The result—larger gear ranges that riders want and expect for their road, commuter, gravel, and touring bicycles.
Fits Shimano R9100-generation Dura-Ace, R8000-generation Ultegra, RX800 and RX805 Ultegra, and R7000 105 rear derailleurs.
Optimised for use with GRX ultra wide range drivetrains when using the GRX 810 (RX810) rear derailleur.
Fits standard derailleur hangers only.
Direct mount derailleur hangers are not supported. These are not common and the stock b-link that the RoadLink DM replaces will not be present on bikes with a direct mount derailleur hanger.
Optimised for use with 11-36T, 11-40T, and 11-42T 11 speed cassettes.
Will improve performance with 10-42T 11 speed cassettes, but not to factory levels.
Does not change the derailleurs total chain wrap capacity.
