The X0 2x10 High Direct Mount Front Derailleur is configured to fit a Shimano-style Direct Mount. But, this is not compatible with the Low Direct Mount standard -- which is an E-Type without the E-plate that mounts directly to the frame, or in some cases, a swingarm.
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.
