    New question here. XTR shifters with an XO RD?

    im on a small titus motolite 2...currently running XTR shifters and RD. the RD bangs up against the Horst Linkage constantly during riding(bugs the $*%@ out of me). i wanted to know if i would be capable if running an XO RD with my XTR shifters.

    They have not yet released the XTR shadow yet... as far as I know.

    You cannot use any Shimano shifter with any SRAM rear derailleur. SRAM rear deraileurs The converse is not always true. All MTB front derailleurs and shifters are compatible.

    Anything can be made to work together.
    They just don't function optimally together out of the box.

    XTR shadow will be out January as told to me by my LBS today.
    Sram will work with Shimano rear, just not the other way. I recently had the rockets shifting a Saint rear.
