The SRAM X9 High Clamp Dual Pull Front Derailleur uses X-glide front shifting technology, resulting in almost perfect shifting timing, and instantaneous shifts up or down even under load. This determination to provide the best most instantaneous shifting performance is complimented by a hard wearing high quality construction, that means your shifting performance will be safeguarded for years to come.
High performance and tons of style guaranteed. Heavily inspired by X.0, with materials and technologies to meet the demands of any rider. New features for the 2007 X9 Trigger Shifters include SRAM's ZERO Loss Travel, and adjustable clamp positions, just like it's bigger brother X.0. The rear derailleur has also been re-designed for 2007, and features a forged B-Knuckle for improved stiffness, and the addition of a short cage option.
The Exact Actuation system uses a 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel : derailleur movement) for 10 speed shifting. This Exact Actuation helps to simplify and 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.
