SRAM X7 type 2 rear deraillieur

Mountain biking isn’t a cheap sport. Especially for beginners and “normal” riders it’s a challenge to find reliable products with a reasonable performance-price relation. SRAM now introduces the all new X7 Type 2 rear derailleur.


That means X0 technology at the X7 level reducing chain bounce and chain slap. It makes wheel removal very easy and the good news is: It fits on the bike you have now!

It weighs 293g and is compatible with 36-tooth cassettes. 3 cage lengths available: short, medium and long. Price is $89 / 80€.


Furthermore X0, X9 & X7 trigger shifters received an update: They now have a new design with a smaller package size for improved rider interface.


    X0 Trigger Shifters: $262 / € 236
    X9 Trigger Shifters: $123 / € 111
    X7 Trigger Shifters: $70 / € 63
