Q & A


There isn't much to distinguish SRAM's X5 from the more expensive rear derailleurs in the lineup, but the X5 is at a much more accessible price.  The Alloy B-Knuckle, Alloy Links, High Strength Grilon Composite P-Knuckle make up it's construction, and the result is a solid, reliable and lightweight derailleur.

Direct route cabling mean less resistance for lighter shifting and it is compatible with any of SRAM's Exact Actuation shifters to give a great performing setup. Works with up to 36t cassettes.

Great for off road or town/trekking use.


1:1 Actuation 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. Easiest to set up. Easiest to adjust. And, not coincidentally, the top choice of the top MTB riders.

Exact Actuation:

When we launched our road technology from scratch we reapplied our MTB proven SRAM 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel : derailleur movement) for 10 speed rear shifting. EA 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.
