Bent derailleur hangers can cause several issues. Usually, this takes the form of poor shifting, but with a severely bent hanger, the rear derailleur could potentially jam into the rear wheel, resulting in catastrophic damage and likely a crash. The Eagle Transmission rear derailleur is connected to the thru-axle on your bike and is designed to be extremely robust against side and frontal impacts so that you can continue your ride after a crash.
