SRAM TYPE 2 Rear Derailleur

Introducing the SRAM TYPE 2 rear derailleur.

Designed for X0 and X9 families, TYPE 2 rear derailleur delivers maximum drivetrain stability—even through the most punishing technical terrain. With Roller Bearing Clutch™ technology, SRAM TYPE 2 eliminates derailleur bounce and chain slap without sacrificing precision.

Thoughts => They didn’t invite me to the Press Camp at Santa Cruz, as I am a lowly writer ;>(. This looks like a very interesting design, that accomplishes the same thing as the Shimano Shadow, but in a different tact. Can’t wait to try it out.

Roller Bearing Clutch Technology

  • A one-way roller clutch controls chain tension for consistent shifting
  • Needle bearing
  • Self lubricating for consistently smooth action
  • 360 degree clutch force for reliability and durability
  • TYPE 2’s clutch force comes factory calibrated by SRAM
  • Consistent shifting feel
  • Maintenance free clutch design

Cage Lock Technology
The first rear derailleur of its kind, SRAM TYPE 2 lets you push your cage forward and lock it into place with the push of a button. This creates slack, removing all tension from the chain. With Cage Lock, TYPE 2 makes wheel removal and installation— as well as chain installation—easier than any other derailleur on earth.

  1. Just push the cage forward—creating slack—and lock it in place.
  2. The chain stays perfectly loose, letting the derailleur swing out of the way. When you’re ready to ride again, simply unlock the cage and go.
