A: Yup! This rear derailleur will work with the X0 9 speed Shifters


Q: Will this work with a Shimano Deore shifter?

Great shifting in a solid and reliable rear derailleur. Yeah, you can pay more for an XO or equivalent Shimano, but you won't get any better shifting or reliable service. Use with X9 twist-grips and shift issues are a thing of the past. Better grab two while they're still available -- the manufacturers want you to go 10 and 11 speed and sell you a whole new drivetrain!

I just love this derailleur. I have used it for several drive train changes. The cost is amazing. I am an avid grip shifter for many many years. I would defineatly recommend this product.

Shifting is great but the SRAM parts do not last like Shimano. I was sold on SRAM the minute I tried shifting with it, so crisp and snappy but I find they develop play over a much shorter period of time. I've run through 2 of these while at same time my SLX is as good as the day I bought it and to be frank I think Shimano has improved their shifting, that mushy feel is gone in their newer products. Switching back to Shimano, don't want to spend money on a 3rd SRAM RD

great RD! I use this as a 1x9 setup with no chainguide and I still have yet to jump a chain. retention won't be as good as a clutch but it's pretty strong. I will use this until it breaks before considering a 1x10 setup!

Have been through three sets of x9 drivetrain parts. Failures mostly due to rider and trail not plying nice. Outside of that, solid mid range components that take a reasonable beating

When I broke my XO derailleur I didn't want to spend too much to replace it. The X9 has proven to be just as precise and easy to adjust and tune. Slight weight penalty but a great value.

Had a long cage x9 that got worn out, replaced with the medium cage, since am running a 2x9. Works well, snappier shifts, shifts through all the gears nicely and very happy with it. Solid price as well.

I am on my 2nd X9 deraileur (the first developed excessive play after ~3years) and I couldn't be happier. I keep wanting to make the switch from an old 9 speed to 10speed or 11 speed XX1 but this thing just keeps on trucking through the wind and the sun and the rain and the snow (there was icicles on my derailleur at one point) and I just can't justify the extra expense.

Upgraded my Giant Anthem with the SRAM X9. Shifting is never an issue anymore. Solid and clean shifts thru all gears. Very easy to install and adjust.

Reliable and Dependable - Apr 23, 2014

WINSTON SALEM, NC

The x9 is one of the most dependable components that you can get. I have this on my wifes Santa Cruz so it has to be dependable or I am in the dog house for weeks. With 9 speed systems disappearing I am stocking up for the future demise of the most reliable 9 speed system on the market. The pivot bushing wears out after 5,000 off-road miles so it lasts. The jocket wheels don't wear out either. The massive spring that sram uses in the x9 always makes my shifting fast and snappy in all weather conditions. Easy to set up and install. The cable tie down is my favorite feature of the rear derailleur. Pull the cable tight and it locks it in. No need for 3 hands to get a frim cable installation. The instructions actually make sense instead of decifering chinese-english. Rock solid performance from a dependable company.

I made the switch from Shimano Deore (circa 2001) to SRAM x9 years ago and could not be happier with the performance of the x9 nine speed RD. Shifts are fast and crisp and have not had any problems to date. I don't think I'll ever go back to Shimano if given a choice.

PORTLAND, OR

Been using Sram since I had a 7 speed. Long story short. Can't hardly tell the difference between X-7 and X-9,though the X-9 is a little faster/crisper.These were 2010 versions. I got some NOS X-O twist shifters (great) A friend wants to but my X-7 stuff and I am getting the X-9 9 speed here. The price is right. I am one loyal Sram man! Oh, and by the way, the direct cable routing to the derailleur is the coolest thing since sliced bread. PS I once crashed hard on the right side, bent the hanger and the derailleur was fine.That was the X-7.I'm still using it 3 years later!

Throw issues - Nov 01, 2013

Royal Oak, MI

When finally adjusted and dialed in, this shifter works very well and has given me no problems after a few months. However, the limit adjustments did not go far enough and would not allow engagement to the largest rear chainring. This is most likely caused by the odd sizing of my Mavic freehub. I ended up spacing out the derailleur from the hanger with a 1mm washer. Not the most ideal fix, but it works and I have not had any issues with it since. I have heard some units were not manufactured correctly and you might have to go to your LBS for a solution to get shifting dialed in correctly, or have them get a new shifter from Sram.

I've switched to SRAM x-9 on all my MTB bikes. Much more precise, snappy shifting than the other S brand. Great price, great performance

This is a great product for the money. You can't go wrong with SRAM. Easy installation and really good instructions on how to make all the proper adjustments. No need for a bike mechanic to install.

I have never had a problem with SRAM derailleurs. I am using X-9 on both my mountain bikes. Shifting is smooth and trouble-free.

FORT IRWIN, CA

I love Sram MTB components and you'd be able to tell from looking at my bike, but when trying to put a full X9 group set on, I just could not get this rear mech to work out! It just seemed like the limit screws would not allow it to move far enough. Price Point returns were great and I decided to go with an X7 rear which mated perfectly and I actually like the look better!

I hate to blame this derailleur because it has served pretty well and I love most other SRAM systems, however, given the difficulties I have been experiencing recently I would probably go back to XT or XTR over the X.9.
