SRAM X0 Type 2 10 Speed Rear Derailleur Technologies :
Cage Lock - The first rear derailleur of its kind, SRAM TYPE 2 lets you push your cage forward and lock it into place with the push of a button. This creates slack, removing all tension from the chain. With Cage Lock, TYPE 2 makes wheel removal and installation—as well as chain installation—easier than any other derailleur on earth.
Exact Actuation - When we launched our road technology from scratch we reapplied our MTB proven SRAM 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel : derailleur movement) for 10 speed rear shifting. EA helps to simplify/stabilize the uneasy act of balancing rear derailleur hanger design, tight cog spacing and exact cable tension. The result: the easiest index shifting system to set up and it stays that way.
Roller Bearing Clutch - Designed for X0 and X9 families, TYPE 2 rear derailleur delivers maximum drivetrain stability—even through the most punishing technical terrain. With Roller Bearing Clutch™ technology, SRAM TYPE 2 eliminates derailleur bounce and chain slap without sacrificing precision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by goat6323 Excellent upgrade
I was previously running a 2x10 with an x0 non-clutch rear mech and a chain tensioner which worked well but still had chain slap on the rough trails.
This X0 Type 2 has allowed me to run it without the chain tensioner and I haven't had any chain slap or dropped a chain once.
Shift performance and setup is exactly the same as the non-clutch version too.
Well worth the money!

The X0 type 2 rear mech is great, I have given it heaps of hard use and it is still working superbly. I can't recommend it enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by davesb66 Silky Smooth shifting and super quiet running
Ive had this on my bike for about 100km now replacing a standard XT and it runs faultlessly so far, quiet running with the clutch makes chainslap a thing of the past and being able to shift under pressure and taking the worry out of gear selection lets you concentrate on going even quicker out on the trail. Runs seamlessly even when caked in mud on the wettest of days. Barring any problems in the future will definitely be sticking with the Type 2 system and XO for a long time.
Only problem Ive had with replacing the chainset is that I have dropped my chain off the chainring twice but just about to order a RaceFace narrow wide chainring which should eliminate the problem.
Pricey, but definitely worth the money if you can justify it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Not worth the money
I brought one of these over the standard X0, I have an X0 front and it works really well, but this type 2 is not worth the cash, the locking mechanisim is junk and it is no better than the standard X0, the torx screws are also pretty weak, painted screws are no good.
Overall I am finding the sram gear pretty overpriced for what you get :(
For the price I payed for the X0 front and Type 2 rear I could have fitted all Shimano XT including the shifters for a bit more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Does what it says on the tin
Running this on a hardtail with single 34 up front, 36 tooth cassette and no chain guide. Ratio wise, goes up and down the hills fine! only been out on it once but works a treat! with the old style none clutch x0 it was always dropping the chain, didnt budge once all day with this one!!
Bit expensive but very quiet and works sweet!!
