SRAM X9 Type 2 10 Speed Rear Derailleur

Engineered to Endure. From steep, endless climbs to hair-raising, technical descents, X9 is engineered to handle whatever comes your way. Smooth, precise shifting helps you cover more ground, faster. The lightweight, stiff and always reliable crankset lets you maintain your momentum through the rough stuff. Whether you’re sprinting for the finish or tackling an all-day epic, your best ride starts with X9.

SRAM X9 Type 2 10 Speed Rear Derailleur Features :

  • Exact Actuation for precise and dependable 10-speed performance
  • Focused chassis design for all conditions and usage
  • 250g (medium cage)
  • 36-tooth cassette capable
  • 3 cage lengths available: short, medium and long

SRAM X9 Type 2 10 Speed Rear Derailleur Specifications :

  • Speeds- 10-Speed
  • Weight- 250g (medium cage)
  • Compatibility- 36-tooth cassette
  • Cage Sizes- short, medium, long

SRAM X9 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 4.8 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprising, a lot better than I thought. I have been using SRAM X0 Mechs and Shifters on all my bikes for around 8 years and was torn between X0 and X9 for my new build. I decided that I would use X0 Shifters but with an X9 type 2 rear mech. I have no regrets the rear mech is superb. I normally run an e-thirteen chain device but on the new build I hadn't purchased one before my first ride and I probably wont now. The chain behaved really well and the mech kept tension over everything. the lockable feature for wheel removal I thought was a little gimicky but its very good, so simple but makes wheel removal easy. I am now upgrading my other X0 rear mechs to the type 2 i'm very impressed 14 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good solid performer I have recently purchased an x9 and a shimano zee withe a clutch I use the shimano zee for downhill and I find its lasted the longest of any brand derailleurs I have had (I have had a lot) Because of the position it rides in tucked up. This SRAM x9 is also very good clutch woks well better for trail use because of its medium cage for more range.i run this x9 with a fat thin sprocket and it is very reliable will drop a chain only in very extreme roughness. I would recommend x9 for trail riding but I feel the shimano has a stronger clutch making it quieter and I fell that chain tension would be better. 21 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Clutch I have this mech on my iron Horse MKiii, with a thick, thin Chain Ring, and NO CHAIN DEVICE, and I have yet to drop a chain in anger. This clutch mech, paired with a thick thin Chain Ring is fantastic, I have ridden the downhill tracks at Innerleithen as well as Dunkeld, where I was convinced I would drop a cain, but it just stayed on. This mech also appears to be stronger than old x9s as I took a fairly large bash that bent my hanger out of usable shape, but once a new hanger was fitted shifting resumed as normal. As a bonus, the clutch seems to keep the bike earily quiet, 4 months use and no faults to report. (I tend to shift into hardest gear before putting my bike away, to prevent unnecessary stretching of the mech springs, whether this makes a difference or not I dont know!) 19 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid shifting mech this is a great mech. The build quality is good and it stands up to the punishment that an English winter can throw at it. The only downside is that the jockey wheels in it are pretty poor and you're better off replacing them after the first winter (if they last that long!). 19 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crisp clean shifting Took a while to settle in but once dialled properly it is excellent! 07 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super smooth and quiet These X9 type 2 derailleurs are great, very quiet and they do reduce chain slap. Combined with X9 or above shifters the shifting is so quick and smooth it's hard to believe its actually moved. 17 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by No probs with this Great product, nice price. Buy this if ur looking for quality at a low price 15 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the downgrade!! I downgraded from X0 normal mech to get a clutch mech. The value for money for astonishing... if I was to choose to match the XO it was £100+ more and I would not have noticed the difference. At first I did not really notice the clutch uses but it is there, it came more apparent when my chain guide broke and it did not matter as the cluch mech was doing all the work in its place. thumbs up for clutch mechs and thumbs up for the value of the X9 compared to the X0 (I did notice that the 2014 version of my bike now comes with X9 instead of X0 lol) 14 January 2014

Answer: 
Hi, me personally would run a medium cage and shorten the chain to suit. This way if you want to go back to a 2x10 you can easily.

Hope that helps, the unit itself is very well made - doubt you'll be disappointed

Answer: 
The Medium Cage version should be fine on a 40/28 or 42/48 setup.
As a general rule, the number of chainrings on your crank will define the length of rear derailleur cage required:
Single ring - Short Cage
Double ring - Medium Cage
Triple ring - Long Cage

Answer: 
Chainring tooth count capacity is an important factor to consider however as a basis for determining which cage length is required:

Singlering Crankset w/ 12-32 cassette = Short Cage
Double Crankset w/ 12-32 cassette = Medium Cage
Triple Crankset w/ 12 -32 cassette = Long Cage

Answer: 
Mixing SRAM and Shimano rear Derailleurs/Shifters is not a viable combination due to variation in cable pull; they will not shift accurately.

The Shimano equivalent can be found below -

The Medium cage variant would be advised.

Answer: 
It is not advisable to mix speeds within a drive in general; in this instance, the derailleur cage would be too narrow for the 9-speed chain.

Answers

Answer: 
A 9 speed chain is slightly wider than a 10 speed chain, so you may experience some chain rub on the cage of the derailleur as a result, but you can run a 3x9 system on a clutch mech if you wish. I would suggest switching out to use a 10 speed chain though as this will help make setup a little easier.
