SRAM PG980 Cassette & X9 Rear Mech Bundle

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.

SRAM X9 Rear Derailleurs 9sp Features:

  • Stylish and Strong! A forged 6061 aluminium B-Knuckle improves stiffness while the X.9 styling exudes our commitment to quality. X.9 is now available in three cage sizes.
  • World Cup Proven Composite Cage
  • Outside Facing Limit Screws - Intuitive Adjustment
  • Sealed Bearing Upper Pulley
  • Di.R.T: Direct Route Technology™

Answer: 
No issue using SRAM and Shimano 9 speed parts together; they are cross-compatible across the board. The only parts that are specific are the rear derailleurs - the rear shifter and rear derailleur must be of the same brand (i.e. your SRAM rear derailleur will need a SRAM shifter to operate it).

Answer: 
Due to variation in cable pull ratio; Shimano and SRAM rear shifter/derailleur's are not cross compatible.

The derailleur suggested below would be a good alternative.

Answers

Answer: 
As a general rule, the number of chain rings on your crank will determine the length of cage you should use
For a single ring system, Short cage is sufficient.
For a double ring system you can use Medium cage.
For a triple ring system you should opt for a Long cage.

There are some combinations of chain ring and cassette where you can use a Medium cage on a triple to get better trail clearance, and others where you will need to use a Long cage on a double to properly accommodate the cassette but in the majority of cases the above guide is fine. If in any doubt or to double check against your exact setup, feel free to contact our Tech team for further help - http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/...
