Goatlink - 575705222
Conceived by Lindarets and developed with Wolf Tooth Components, the GoatLink improves chain wrap and reduces premature shifting degradation by replacing the Direct Mount link from compatible Shimano ten-speed rear derailleurs. We manufacture all the GoatLinks right in our Minnesota machine shops where our other products are made.
The US-made GoatLink installs in moments with little more than a 5mm Allen wrench. In most cases, the stock link can be removed and the GoatLink installed without the need for chain removal or additional cable or housing.
The GoatLink is optimized for use with Wolf Tooths 40- and 42-tooth Giant Cogs and all sizes of Drop-Stop chainrings- but will work with any 11-40t or 11-42t ten-speed cassette. The GoatLink is compatible with 2013 or later Shimano ten-speed Shadow+ rear derailleurs that make use of the 8mm Direct Mount intermediate link to mount to standard derailleur hangers. Direct Mount-native frames and SRAM rear derailleurs are not supported.
Technical Details (subject to finalization):
Chain Wrap at 11t:
- 40t: Improved by 69%
- 42t: Improved by 53%
- Free Chain at 11t:
- 40t: Improved by 25%
- 42t: Improved by 19%
Due to variations in derailleur hanger geometry, chainstay length, chainring size, B-screw adjustment, and suspension configuration, individual results will vary. You will NEVER need a longer B-screw when using a GoatLink!
