Wolf Tooth Components Lindarets GoatLink Shimano Direct Mount Rear Derailleur mount link. The Lindarets x Wolf Tooth GoatLink is simply the fastest route to improved wear and long-term shifting performance on wide-range 11-40t and 11-42t one-by-ten drivetrains.
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.
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 CNC Machined in Minnesota from 6061 aluminum and comes fitted with precision stainless steel hardware. All GoatLinks are anodized black and laser etched at Wolf Tooth Components’ Minneapolis facility.
