    Here is a product that is a big improvement over the standard X9 derailleur. It shifts great and almost eliminates all of the chain slap. It still moves over the really rocky stuff when you are riding at a good clip but is much quieter and saves you chainstay. I also like the locking feature which makes it easier to remove you wheel or the quicklink in your chain. It is just a few grams heavier but well worth the trade off of improved performance.

    Overall good derailleur, but not much better than a non-type 2. The clutch is not that strong and I still get chain slap when using the smaller cogs. The stopper is a nice touch and makes maintenance easy. The one major design flaw is the routing of the cable. Because the wraps around the half-circle joint it creates friction and force on the cable. This actually causes the cable to break. Much like crimping the cable to break it. I went through three cables in about a 2 month span. Once the cable starts to create a groove in the joint it reduces the cable life dramatically. Jagwire cable kits come with a plastic sealing liner, which I'm using to reduce the friction on the cable. So far it's working. Unfortunately I can't recommend this product because of that. If you don't mind changing your cables often you may like this product.

    Clutch is annoying

    Comments about SRAM X.9 Type 2 10 Speed Rear Derailleur:

    It's a tale of two derailleurs. The clutch means that it doesn't always give you the gear you want right away. This is frustrating when you want to shift up or down a single gear. Shifting two gears at a time seems to override the clutch mechanism. That said, the clutch gives you great shifts when under load, which makes an obvious difference.

    Only difference between this and X0 is a little bit of carbon, so you shouldn't bother with the fancier one.

      Comments about SRAM X.9 Type 2 10 Speed Rear Derailleur:

      Purchased this SRAM X9 Type2 10spd Short Cage for doing a 1x10 conversion to replace the SRAM X5 Long on my Trek Fuel EX5. Perfect upgrade and direct replacement. Best of all, no more chain slap! Nothing more embarrassing being the only going clank clank clank down the hill on a group ride.

      Definitely recommend this (along with a 1x10 conversion) as your first upgrade.

          I also have a bike with XO and cant tell the difference. Compared to XT, I prefer srams crisp shifting. Save a few bucks and go with the X9, wont be disappointed.

            I usually buy the X9 or below for the most vulnerable component on then bike. The X9 usually has the pass through tech from the previous years XO or XX so if you don't mind a couple of extra grams it is worth it.

              Installed on a hanger that was bent a bit and then hand bent back. Works perfectly so I haven't bothered to install the new hanger yet (maybe after the next crash). Can't ask for better shifting. Minimal chain slap and only in small ring. Can't beat the price either.

                  I put this on my bike along with a Race Face NW chainring, and removed my chain guide. All I can say is that it does what it was meant to do. I have yet to drop a chain and my drive-train is silent. The only downfall I have found is that when shifting to a larger cog can be a bit more difficult due to the clutch. I only notice it when pedaling & shifting the bike on a stand, not while actually riding the bike.

                    I upgraded components on my bike and decided to go with the Type2 clutch rear derailleur in combination with a narrow-wide front chainring. The difference is amazing -- no more chain-slap, no more loose/swaying chain. It's a tight, snug fitting chain throughout. It's definitely worth the upgrade!
