Why not treat yourself to a new cassette and derailleur with our excellent value PG980 MTB Cassette & X9 Rear Derailleur bundle?
SRAM X9 9 Speed Rear Derailleur:
The X.9 line-up features the same robust qualities and technologies as the X.0 system. If you are looking for greatness in a refined high-performance package then look no further, choose X.9!
1:1 Actuation™ is simply superior. The very nature of its design makes it this way. For every 1 unit of cable pulled or released, the derailleur moves the same amount. Simple? Yes. Dependable and tolerant? The best. Ease of set-up and adjustment? Easiest. This is why the top athletes in the MTB world prefer SRAM. From the mud infested Cross Country of the Sea Otter Classic, to the rocks and roots of a Fort William World Cup Downhill the 1:1 actuation stays precise and fluid. 1:1 Actuation precision is why you find SRAM on the elite bikes from cross-country flyers to full gravity bombers.
Direct Route Technology™: We've been singing the praises of this technology for years. Cut out the middleman, go direct, and speak to the actuation mechanism itself. Direct route technology is light, responsive, precise and impervious to cable housing damage. We have simply reduced the friction by routing the cable directly to the actuation mechanism and less effort means you save the extra push for your ride.
