SRAM X5 Rear Mech
The SRAM X5 9 Speed Rear Mech features 1:1 Actuation (TM) , which is superior by design. Every unit of cable you pull moves the derailleur the same amount. Actuation stays precise and fluid slogging through mud, bouncing off rocks, rutting through roots - wherever you find yourself, whatever conditions you're in. It's dependable. Tolerant. Easier to set up. Easier to adjust. And, not coincidentally, the top choice of the top MTB riders. Got it? Good. SRAM Exact Actuation for Precise & Dependable Shifting Performance Direct Route Technology For Lighter Effort Shifting Material: Alloy B-Knuckle, Alloy Links, High Strength Grilon Composite P-Knuckle Cage: Long Capacity: Medium 37T; Long 45T Technologies: Exact Actuation - When SRAM launched the road technology from scratch they reapplied their MTB proven SRAM 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel: derailleur movement) for 9 speed rear shifting. Exact Actuation helps to simplify/stabilize the uneasy act of balancing rear derailleur hanger design, tight cog spacing and exact cable tension. The result: the easiest index shifting system to set up and it stays that way. MatchMaker Compatible - Save weight and clutter on the bar with MatchMaker. This system holds AVID (R) levers, a number of SRAM triggers and the RockShox PushLoc control-all with one tidy, light clamp.

SRAM Rear Mechs
SRAM began life in Chicago in 1987, named after it's founders Scott, Ray And Sam, and is known primarily as a manufacturer of drivetrain and braking components. It's first revolutionary product was the twist action GripShift, which became available in 1988, with the MTB version released in 1991. In 1995, they launched their first ESP rear derailleur, which featured a 1 to 1 cable actuation ratio. The X.O drivetrain products were released in 2001, marking the introduction of the trigger shifter, and a year later, MTB Suspension pioneers RockShox was acquired. A year later Avid - a MTB Disc Brake company - was also acquired, giving SRAM more market share of the MTB industry. By 2006, a focus was shifted to producing road components in addition to their MTB stable, with the launch of Force and Rival groupsets. The following year, Doubletap was introduced, enabling users to switch gear in either direct using a single shifter. This steady growth was sustained, and over the years SRAM acquired several more cycling household brands, such as Truvativ (Chainsets and components), Quarq (power meters), Sachs (drivetrain components) and Zipp (carbon fibre goodies!).
