"The group provides the same 2x10 benefits as XX at a fraction of the cost (and a little extra weight). X7 does provide greater durability when compared to its feathery XX brethren, while still offering the benefits of 2x10. With much of the technology trickled down from above, X7 offers high-end features including X-Glide front shifting, Exact Actuation shifter technology, wide range PowerGlide cassettes, and carbon rear derailleur cages. In order to keep price down, Sram has applied XX R&D to X7 while using a variety of lower priced production material". Mountainflyer magazine
