SRAM's NX group puts it all out there on the table as a no-nonsense, affordable groupset that borrows technology from SRAM's higher end offerings to bring quality mechanicals to those of us on a budget. Given its appropriation of SRAM's pricier one-by tech, the NX 1x11 Rear Derailleur is compatible with all of SRAM's one-by drivetrains for precise shifting.
The NX 1x11 Rear Derailleur packs in SRAM's top one-by engineering to ensure rear shifts are smooth, accurate, and predictable. Starting with the offset pulleys, the tall square-toothed X-Sync profiles work to positively engage and manage the chain better than traditional pulleys. These pulleys work in conjunction with the X-HORIZON's straight parallelogram design, which limits all movement to the horizontal axis, thus eliminating ghost shifting and reducing shifting force. SRAM's proven Roller Bearing Clutch is also present, which delivers maximum drivetrain stability by maintaining consistent tension on the chain — even while riding in the most demanding conditions. SRAM's handy Cage Lock design caps things off and keeps the derailleur locked out of the way when needed for easy rear wheel installation/removal.

Clean and solid
Not ultra light but ultra reliable. Good workhorse component. So many speeds too.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I gave this as a gift, but he is absolutely loving his NX drivetrain. The ability to run SRAM 11sp on wheels that aren't XD drivers is a great addition to the bike world. solid and smooth. Highly recommend
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Want to swap to 1x11 on the cheap? Here is your guy. solid shifting, cheap price, reasonable weight. there you go.
