Sitting below the elite X0 model is the new SRAM X9 alloy and composite rear mech, at 239g for the long-cage model. The body is a tweaked 10-speed version of the 2009/10 nine-speed X9. It’s chunky, solid and without a hint of ﬂex or sloppiness anywhere – good portents for accurate shifting. Strong return springs in the arm and the parallelogram keep the chain tensioned over the rough stuff, and ensure lightning fast rear shifting right across modern wide-ratio 12-36T rear cassettes. bikeradar
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.
