New X7 TYPE 2 Rear Derailleur with Roller Bearing Clutch Technology takes trail performance to an all new level. SRAM 10spd Technologies, Finish and Family Strategy create a cohesive performance story. X7 intends to deliver the highest value MTB components in class. We've built in our award winning 10 Speed Exact Actuation shifting technology on the new X7 derailleur, XX shifting performance at the X7 level! Finally we add some spice to this part with our new Storm Grey Finish and family graphics package.
Direct Route: Here's the dirt on middlemen: they suck. That's why Direct Route Technology™ doesn't have one. Instead, the cable routes directly to the actuation mechanism. Result? Less friction. Less effort. More oomph. Plus it's impervious to cable housing damage. Nice.
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.
