 Pro :
Fiable, robuste et facile à ajusté (beaucoup facile plus que les produits Shimano de la même gamme).

Reliable, rugged and easy to tune (much more easily than comparable Shimano product).

Contre :
Pas de différence de performance avec un X7. Les nouveaux galets avec des rayons et des vides sont faciles à briser.

Didn’t notice performance difference compare to a X7. New pulley with spokes and voids easy to break

 This derailleur simply rocks!!! By far best thing I used, very bulky and strong, Shimano looks like a toy compare to this, it's very responsive and quick, and most of all RELIABLE, once you adjust them there is no worries for a long time! Big Grin

 AWESOME DERAILER!!! The SRAM X9 is by far the best derailer I have ever ridden or worked on. I am a lifetime supporter of the SRAM family of products (SRAM, Truvativ, Avid, Rock Shox), keep delivering the goods, and I will definitely keep buying them!!!

 Long cage is really awesome for XC. Looks sick, strong, and shifts fast. It's only 30g heavier than the X0, and the only difference between them is the carbon cage. WAY better than Deore XT, and you can tell it's better quality than Shimano just by looking at it. Pair this derailleur up with X9 shifters too, otherwise they wont work to thier full potential. BEST DERAILLEUR FOR THE MONEY.

 From my experience with both shimano and sram rear mechs. Sram gets my vote for stiff, crisp and sharp shifting. And they further get a second vote for the more resilient rear mech.

 great derailleur, light enough, cheap, and shifts perfectly. fast shifting, no grinding or waiting for the chain to finally catch and jump. Jockey wheels spin freely with little resistance or shaking.

 Highly recommend this derailleur! I have been using this derailleur since its inception and love it. I use it for all around riding & FR/DH and have had very minute amount of troubles or issues.

 Simply - good derrailleur. Is fast, precise and... has everything to be a good one. Durable, stiff, effective. I am glad that I've bought it and put Shimano out.

 The sram X9 shifts when you want and stays there for when you need it. A very solid rear derailleur. I use it on a AM ride. Pros: many, Cons: none

 Amazing, crisp shifting, BUT the jockey wheels seized up after a few hundred miles, and replacements are EXPENSIVE.

 May be a tad heavier than xo, but stiff and crisp for the money.
