Shimano's Ultegra rear derailleur benefits from trickled-down Dura-Ace technology for top-notch shifting without the high-end price. It boasts a light and reliable cold-forged-aluminum body with a wide pivot design that boosts rigidity and speeds and smoothes shifts. Plus, the fluorine-coated pivots minimize friction for nearly effortless shifting. The Ultegra features one sealed-bearing pulley and oversize pulleys, which are silky smooth, ultra quiet, high mileage, and designed to keep out dirt and water.

An important part of a rear derailleur's job is keeping the chain taut as you change gears. Chain-wrap capacity is a number that tells whether or not a derailleur will be able to do this on the drivetrain you plan to use it on. Calculate chain-wrap capacity with this formula: Chain-wrap capacity = (large chainring - small chainring) + (large rear cog - small rear cog). Example: 53/42 chainrings and a 12-23 cassette: (53 - 42 = 11) + (23 - 12 = 11) = 22-tooth chain-wrap capacity.
