Cage Lock: With CAGE LOCK technology in the rear derailleur, wheel removal and installation as well as chain installation becomes faster and simpler. Just pushing the cage forward to create slack and lock it into place.
ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH: ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH rear derailleurs deliver maximum drivetrain stability even through the most punishing terrain. With ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH technology, derailleur bounce and chain slap are eliminated without sacrificing precision.
X-ACTUATION: Developed specifically for SRAM 1x, X-ACTUATION keeps shifting sharp and consistent across the entire cassette.
X-HORIZON: The X-HORIZON rear derailleurs straight parallelogram design limits all movement to the horizontal axis, which makes ghost shifting impossible while also reducing shift force. For quicker, more exact shifting, the large upper pulley offset design maintains a constant chain gap across all gears.
This new GX derailleur not only answers the Eagle drivetrains need for greater capacity, but its also the next evolution of our proven, 1x-specific X-HORIZON design. The larger, 14-tooth X-SYNC lower pulley allows 10- to 50-tooth cassette, and also adds to Eagles overall smooth-pedaling feel. Our new, Type-3 ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH features a smoother torque curve for a quieter, more consistent operation and feel. CAGE LOCK has been moved back and out of the way, protecting it from trail debris. And a redesigned, robust mounting system further improves the Eagle derailleurs performance and overall durability.
