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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous very good
I have one, short caged, on my fatbike. Worked perfectly fine in the very, very muddy conditions of one of my rides... About 40 miles of mud.
Ordering another one for my other bike.
But i had to use washer to install it on the steel frame. So 4 stars.
Отличный переключатель за свои деньги. В жутко грязевом ПВД показал себя идеально, работая облепленным глиной. 60 км говн. ( Рабочий Посёлок - Уборы 2013, веломания ). Но есть косяк - при установке на стальную раму (Surly) переключатель люфтил и не настраивался. Подложил шайбу и всё стало идеально.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous couldn't agree more with Daire from Ireland. This is one of the best rear mechs for the money and so easy to adjust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous За свою цену очень хороший переключатель.
Однако стоит беречь его от падения. У меня он слегка погнулся, все никак не смог определить в каком месте. Нормально теперь работает только 8 скоростей, но это уже моя вина.
До падения вела на переключатель - все было на высоте!

This is almost exactly identical to the X9 from a couple of years back, and has identical performance. It works great, isn't bothered by mud at all, and looks good too!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Bought this to replace the worn out SRAM x9 mech on my mtb. Easy to fit and set up, with lovely smooth operation and gear changes. BUT - like those of the x9, the jockey wheels are rubbish and seized up after about 8 rides. CRC kindly replaced the mech for me, but I have no confidence in the design of the jockey wheels, and they are very expensive to replace, as I discovered with my previous x9 mech. A cheap pair of simple plastic Shimano ones with no fancy bearings are much more reliable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous - Had my Reign for two years, it came with the X7, I have just replaced it as I smashed it on a log...I dropped my bike to my mechanic ( yes, I am lazy ) I asked for the best upgrade option. He fitted another X7...had a new rear cassette fitted too, and switched to single ring front...love the combo. Great gear.
