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 4.6 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Has it's flaws Bought this along with ten speed XT crank-set, cassette and Sram chain to fit to my Pitch Pro. Rear mech that came off was a medium cage, someone at Chain said the X9 long would be ok, unfortunately it's too long, would have preferred something nearer to original spec of the Pitch. Mech works fine and looks good, but wished been recommended medium cage. 05 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by X9 type 2 Easy to install component that works very nicely. Be aware of medium cage with a double setup... just works on 39/26 to 12-36 drivetrain but probably better off with a long cage however I plan on changing to a 1x10. Only used for a few rides but feels nice and crisp. Currently matched with X7 shifter. 04 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best downgrade ever! Like another reviewer i was also running a non clutch X0 Rear Mech but when it was time to replace it, i was gobsmacked at the price! I used to run X9 on my previous bike and was totally happy with it and so decided to give it a try. Honestly i don't notice any difference in performance and it definitely does reduce chain slap. You still get a bit on really rough stuff but even then it is less than i got with my non clutch X0 rear mech. For anyone curious as to why i had X0 in the first place, it was purely down to getting a really good deal in a sale. X9 or Shimano SLX is as good as most people will need and at an affordable price. 01 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value mech, Type 2 clutch well worth having Replaced a standard X9 rear mech with this, has allowed me to get rid of chain guide on a double chainset and still no drop the chain at all. Also makes the bike a lot quieter over rough ground,. 15 August 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Type 2 clutch broke after 6 months Compared to my xt or xtr shadow plus, this spoils easily. I still prefer shifting action of shimano 08 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth shifting I love Sram shifting so am probably biased but this is a great product. Teamed with a narrow wide means no dropped chain. The lock system for removing the wheel is also surprisingly useful 28 July 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not quite the revelation that was expected Fitted one of these to my Meta SX1 hoping for a transformation in chain slap noise. Shifting is crisp and precise with a new gear cable as usual Sram quality but the reduction in noise just wasn't as much as hoped. The pin feature for holding the mech in place with the chain slack is really useful though, I thought I would never use it but it makes getting the back wheel out less of a faff. 08 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A little pricey but worth it. Purchased as part of a complete build, been using it for the last few days and can't fault it. Perhaps overkill for my needs but for the extra money over the X7 or X5 it's a no brainer. 24 June 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: 
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.

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.

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: 
If you use a 2x10 transmission you will need a medium cage deraileur. I think it is compatible with X5 shifters as well.
