SLX’s derailleurs are very popular amongst amateur and elite trail racers. They are known for lightning quick gear transmissions with a wide range of gears. The front derailleur comes in 2 types, conventional design which is vertical in shape and the side swing design which is horizontal. Both these derailleur designs support x2 and x3 speeds.

The rear derailleur in the SLX uses the shadow tech to improve the accuracy of shifting and efficiency. The M7000 rear derailleur is the latest to be launched and has been inspired a lot by superior components in the Shimano MTB hierarchy. The rear derailleur is compatible to both x10 and x11-Speed gears. The shifters for the groupset are Rapidfire plus which supports both 2x11 and 3x10 derailleurs.
