hi i was wondering which derailleur is better the x9 or x7. and what are the differences, also is it worth upgrading to the better one?

The X9 is better than the X7. X9 is lighter than X7 and it also comes in the short cage version. If you can spend the money and would like very precise shifting, buy the X9. If you break derailleurs every week but still want something that shifts well and is cheap, go for the X7: so far so good in terms of my experience with X7 triggers and derailleur.

x.9 = x.0 without the carbon.

x.7 is way different.

Not quite. The X0 has a lot of metal shaved where the X9 does not. That makes the X0 more vulnerable to hard hits.

yeah i got the x-9 as well, but x-7 shifter. x-9 is the best, its burly, presice, and looks beautiful. So worth he extra money
x-9 is the same as the x-0 interms of shifting quality and everything else xcept the material

I had x7 shifter/detailer combos last year but ran into durability issues.Switched to X9 this year, not one problem!

Sram x7 is basically the same as x9 , x7 is stronger than x9 but x9 shifts better

There is not really any performance or durability difference in the derailleur. The difference is in the shifter. X.9 and X.0 shifters are zero loss. This means they initiate the shift the second it clicks rather than having to push thru the shift. The X9 and X0 shifters work MUCH better.

There's not one piece of extra plastic on X7.


Edit: It is the same design as the previous generation of X9 and X0.

We are talking derailers, right?
