Shimano Dura Ace 9000 Rear DerailleurWith the body's high polish finish, that hearkens back to earlier versions of Dura-Ace, is combined with the lightweight carbon fiber pulley cage, it certainly looks the part. But the beauty of this derailleur is more than skin deep. It is lighter and more compact which imparts greater stiffness for quicker shifting.
Shimano has also relocated the cable anchor point which requires that more cable be pulled to execute each shift. This feature ensures that cables last far longer as they can function properly in poor conditions because the margin of error for each shift has nearly doubled. All of this results in a more positive lever feel than 7900. Shimano really ticks all the boxes with the new 9000 rear derailleur: lighter weight, improved reliability, faster shifting, and greater precision.
