SRAM X0 2x10 High Direct Mount Front Derailleur $82.00
This SRAM X0 2x10 High Direct Mount Front Derailleur is kind of a big deal, in one way at least. After all, it's configured to fit the Shimano designed direct mount. Don't be confused with their Low Direct Mount, which is an E-Type without the E-plate, also mounting directly to the frame or in some cases, a swingarm. The easiest way to recognize this X0 High Direct Mount Front Derailleur is that it's a traditionally styled, bottom swing design.
The X0 2x10 High Direct Mount Front Derailleur is specifically designed to work in conjunction with SRAM's 2x10 cranksets. As such, it's made to handle up to a 15-tooth differential between the big and little rings. Its cage is shorter and narrower than a triple-specific changer. This is great news for those who fear clearance between their rear suspension and their front derailleur.
The aluminum links that shape the swing of the derailleur cage have widely spaced pivots for awesome stiffness. This rigidity inherent in the parallelogram is part of what makes X0 front shifting so quick and efficient. The derailleur cage is made from steel for maximum durability and is shaped for optimum performance with their X-Glide chainrings.
The SRAM X0 2x10 High Direct Mount Front Derailleur is configured to work as either top or bottom pull and bolts straight into a Shimano-style Direct Mount on your frame.
