Shimano's SLX Front Derailleur sports a lightweight aluminum cage that's chrome plated to reduce wear. Plus, the body boasts wide parallel pivots that provide fast, smooth and reliable shifts every time.
Your seat-tube diameter determines the needed derailleur clamp size. The Deore XT Top Swing Front Derailleur has a 34.9mm clamp size and comes with 31.8 and 28.6mm adapters.
Capacity is calculated by subtracting your smallest chainring's tooth count from the largest chainring's tooth count. Example: 46/34/24 chainrings: 46 - 24 = 22-tooth capacity.
The dual-pull design allows this derailleur to be used with top- or bottom-pull cable routing.
