Introducing the Lindarets x Wolf Tooth GoatLink: the fastest and simplest route to improved shifting and increased drivetrain life on wide-range one-by drivetrains
Conceived by Lindarets and developed with Wolf Tooth Components, the GoatLink improves chain wrap and shifting performance on wide-range 1x10 drivetrains. By replacing the Direct Mount link from compatible Shimano 10s derailleurs, the GoatLink relocates the pulleys to return chain wrap to stock-or-better levels while reducing the distance between the top pulley and cassette, noticeably improving shifting in higher gears.
The GoatLink is optimized for use with Wolf Tooth’s 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 US-made GoatLink installs in moments with little more than a 5mm Allen wrench. In most cases, the derailleur can be removed, the Direct Mount link can be replaced, and the GoatLink installed without the need for chain removal or additional cable housing.
The GoatLink is CNC Machined in Minnesota from 7075 aluminum and comes fitted with precision stainless steel hardware. GoatLinks are anodized black and laser etched in house at Wolf Tooth Components’ Minneapolis facility.
With its accessible price and straightforward installation, the GoatLink puts better gear changes and dramatically better chain and cassette life within easy reach of most any rider.
GoatLinks can be pre-ordered now and will begin shipping in mid-March, 2015.
