Campagnolo Chorus 11 EPS Front Derailleur Campagnolo Chorus 11 EPS Front Derailleur
In order to bring its venerable EPS electronic drivetrains to a more friendly price point, Campagnolo could have swapped out the high-capacity motors that drive the derailleurs for lesser, weaker systems, while still using carbon fiber and titanium pieces to make sure it looked great. Not happy to compromise function, Campy chose instead to simply simplify form, keeping the same derailleur motors as those used in the more expensive Record 11 EPS and Super Record 11 EPS derailleurs. The bottom line: The Campagnolo Chorus 11 EPS Front Derailleur is slightly heavier than more expensive EPS front derailleurs because you'll find some aluminum pieces in place of fancier materials, but the performance will be otherwise identical.

Campagnolo Chorus 11 Front Derailleur Campagnolo Chorus 11 Front Derailleur
The Campagnolo Chorus 11 Front Derailleur may be the biggest beneficiary of the group's redesign for 2015. The new cable pull ratio in the Chorus shifters means that it enjoys an extra position of trim while in the small ring, so you can actually use all 22 gear combinations in your drivetrain with no chain rubbing. That fact alone is enough to inspire us to break out in joyful song, but the new derailleur has a few other improvements that make the deal even sweeter. For 2015, the derailleur gets a longer cage for greater leverage, so less force is required to effect an upshift. The cage is also narrower, so you can exert more precise control over shifts. The metal cage is built to stress silent shifting without sacrificing Campagnolo's legendary snappiness. The derailleur also includes an optional cable deviator insert. With some internally routed frames, the front shifting cable comes out so close to the derailleur that it can rub against it. The deviator insert prevents this. The Campagnolo Chorus 11 Front Derailleur is only compatible with 2015 Campagnolo Super Record, Record, and Chorus drivetrains. Compatibility can be determined by matching the letter on the bike side of the inside arm with the corresponding markings on your other drivetrain components.

Campagnolo Record 11 EPS Front Derailleur Campagnolo Record 11 EPS Front Derailleur
In the lead-up to the new model year, Campagnolo spent a lot of time redesigning its three top mechanical groupsets, so the nigh-perfect shifting of the Record 11 EPS (Electronic Power Shift) Front Derailleur's smart, precise, and corrective operation remains unchanged. After all, this model took 20 years to develop, and it's the result of an R&D cycle that wasn't satisfied until the product matched the ever-evolving vision. So while we're sure there will be updates in the future, we're equally confident that Campy will take the time to make sure those updates are, in fact, improvements. The Record 11 EPS Front Derailleur is a technological marvel. Like Campagnolo's Record 11 EPS Rear Derailleur, it operates on an electronic actuator comprised of a gear motor and an electronic sensor. Where it differs is in the details. The gear motor for the front derailleur's electronic actuator was developed with a Swiss company that manufactures electric motors for space missions to Mars, so it's not just space age -- it's space worthy. Its high over-torque transmission results in precise, strong pulls, and the Magnetic Hall Sensor Resolver technology uses an internal sensor to automatically center the derailleur on the chain. It also communicates with the rear derailleur via the D. T. I. technology, which auto-trims the front to avoid chain rub, regardless of the gear combination. There are some differences between the Record and Super Record EPS front derailleurs, but they're small. Record 11 has alloy chainguide plates instead of carbon, and steel motor mounts instead of alloy. While this does result in a slight weight gain, there's a corresponding drop in price and no loss of functional performance, and Campagnolo has spent a great deal of time on the Record 11 EPS front derailleur to guarantee that function by addressing the effects of road noise and maximizing rigidity. The derailleur's co-molded frame mounting hardware consists of an aluminum polymer blend, and t...

Campagnolo Record 11 EPS v1 Front Derailleur Campagnolo Record 11 EPS v1 Front Derailleur
The front derailleur has never really been near the top of the list of priorities for most component manufacturers; Tour de France victories have even been derailed (pun intended) by faulty front derailleur shifting . Not so for Campagnolo; for two decades, Campy's engineers relentlessly worked to perfect the most accurate and precise front derailleur in its fabled history. The Record 11 EPS v1 Front Derailleur achieves this through the use of Campagnolo's new Electronic Power Shift, or EPS. With EPS, Campagnolo has re-imagined the capabilities of the front derailleur, and has forever changed its expected function. The electronic revolution is here, and there's no going back. The Record 11 EPS v1 Front Derailleur is a technological marvel. Like Campagnolo's Record 11 EPS Rear Derailleur, it operates on an electronic actuator comprised of a gear motor and an electronic sensor. Where it differs is in the details. The gear motor for the front derailleur's electronic actuator was developed with a Swiss company that manufactures electric motors for space missions to Mars. Really. It operates with a high over-torque transmission resulting in a high gear ratio for precise, strong pulls. The electronic sensor utilizes Magnetic Hall Sensor Resolver technology that both physically and digitally isolates the electronic sensor from terrain vibration. This isolation guarantees consistently precise function of the derailleur's positioning and shifting. Differences between the Record and the Super Record versions of the EPS front derailleur are small. Record 11 has alloy chainguide plates instead of carbon, and steel motor mounts to replace Super Record's alloy mounts. The tradeoff is a slight weight gain, but you do shave a few dollars off the price. Campagnolo has spent a great deal of time on the Record 11 EPS v1 front derailleur to guarantee precision by eliminating terrain vibration and maximizing rigidity. The frame-derailleur fixing system is comprised of an aluminum po...

Campagnolo Record 11 Front Derailleur Campagnolo Record 11 Front Derailleur
The Campagnolo Record 11 Front Derailleur is virtually the same as its Super Record counterpart, with the one difference being the substitution of alloy hardware for titanium. This results in a claimed weight gain of seven grams for Record, but it still enjoys the new cable pull ratio in the Record shifters that grant an extra position of trim while in the small ring. This extra trim allows you limitless access to all 22 gear combinations in your drivetrain with no chain rubbing, which proves that even the benchmark of front derailleurs can benefit from the occasional improvement. For 2015, the derailleur gets a longer cage for greater leverage, so less force is required to effect an upshift. The cage is also narrower, so you can exert more precise control over shifts. The cage is a combination of alloy and carbon, built to stress silent shifting without sacrificing Campagnolo's legendary snappiness. The derailleur also includes an optional cable deviator insert. With some internally routed frames, the front shifting cable comes out so close to the derailleur that it can rub against it. The deviator insert prevents this.

Campagnolo Super Record 11 EPS Front Derailleur Campagnolo Super Record 11 EPS Front Derailleur
The Super Record 11 EPS Front Derailleur is a celebration of harmony between alluring Italian design and the most innovative front derailleur that Campagnolo has ever created. Its combination of materials, electronic functionality, and precise accuracy make it the most sought-after front derailleur in the world. Given that the Italian legend spent 20 years preparing for its flagship derailleur's initial release, it won't surprise anyone that not much has changed for the new model year. The Super Record 11 EPS Front Derailleur uses an electronic actuator comprising a gear motor and an electronic sensor. Where it differs is in the details. The gear motor for the front derailleur's electronic actuator was developed with a Swiss company that manufactures electric motors for space missions to Mars, so it's not just space-age -- it's space-worthy. Its high over-torque transmission results in precise, strong pulls, and the Magnetic Hall Sensor Resolver technology uses an internal sensor to automatically center the derailleur on the chain. It also communicates with the rear derailleur via the D. T. I. technology, which auto-trims the front to avoid chain rub, regardless of the gear combination. As any gear head knows, Campagnolo loves a good hierarchy, and the Super Record EPS Front Derailleur earns its place at the top. Where Record 11 has alloy chain guide plates, Super Record uses carbon; where Record has steel motor mounts, Super Record uses alloy. This saves weight and adds a bit of snap to shifting. The derailleur's co-molded frame-mounting hardware consists of an aluminum polymer blend, and the external derailleur rod, which works in conjunction with the electronic actuator, is held by a hollow hub and double wing with a double-finned pin for maximum precision through stiffness. The actuator itself is housed in a cascade gearbox that, along with the vibration-damping technopolymer-carbon body, minimizes vibration and allows movement to be transferred precisely....

Campagnolo Super Record 11 Front Derailleur Campagnolo Super Record 11 Front Derailleur
For 2015, Campagnolo reworked its already ultra-precise shifting. In the Super Record 11 Front Derailleur the word is "trim." In the small ring you now get an extra click of trim to ensure perfect alignment of all 22 gears. You are even able to use your gears when they are fully cross-chained. The cage is longer for greater leverage so that less force is needed for upshifting, and it is narrower to guide the chain even more effectively. While the inner cage is alloy, the outer is lightweight carbon, which leaves the derailleur weighing in at 71 grams.

Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 FD-R9150 11-Speed Front Derailleur Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 FD-R9150 11-Speed Front Derailleur
Aside from some slightly modified aesthetics and a 10g reduction in weight, the Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 FD-R9150 11-Speed Front Derailleur carries over the high functioning precision of its 9070 predecessor. While the new 9150 rear derailler gets all the attention for its mountain-inspired changes, the front derailleur sits stealthily by as the brains of the Di2 system, ensuring fast, reliable, and customizeable gear shifts whether you're off to the coffee shop for the Sunday social ride or hammering the pedals at the pointy end of the peloton. The front derailleur has always been our favorite component of the Di2 series, reinforced by years of mechanical systems throwing chains at inopportune moments on climbs and winding up for sprints. Di2 makes thrown chains a part of history with fast, silent, and accurate chain movement boosted by Shimano's automatic trimming function. This feature adjusts the position and angle of the front derailleur, on-the-fly, and eliminates the possibility of dropping the chain under heavy shifts up or down the chainrings, regardless of how cross-chained that you may be. This function also prevents the mere thought of chain rub for a smooth, quiet ride in every gear combination.

Shimano Dura-Ace FD-9000 11-Speed Front Derailleur Shimano Dura-Ace FD-9000 11-Speed Front Derailleur
Shimano's top-shelf road drivetrain has had to make some pretty serious improvements to keep up with its number one competition--the Dura-Ace Di2 drivetrain. Electronic shifting is proving to be very, very good, so the Di2's mechanical siblings are working extra hard these days. The Shimano Dura-Ace FD-9000 11-Speed front derailleur's improvements focus mainly on one area: usability. That means a lighter action and a shorter lever stroke. Electronic shifting is good, but if it also works to make mechanical shifting better, that's just a bonus. The FD-9000 claims a 43% reduction in shifting effort compared to 7900. That's an enormous improvement. This is helped along by Shimano's polymer-coated shift cable, which nearly eliminates mechanical drag. Shimano then shortened the lever stroke by manipulating the leverage at the front derailleur. All this adds up to shifting that's on par with Shimano's Di2 system.

Shimano Dura-Ace FD-R9100 11-Speed Front Derailleur Shimano Dura-Ace FD-R9100 11-Speed Front Derailleur
Across Dura-Ace 9100, Shimano made subtle, rather than monumental, shifts in design to improve a system that was already pretty damn good. Proving that mechanical drivetrains can--and still should--be improved, Shimano focused most of its attention on the derailleurs, making the biggest changes to ride experience with important tweaks to both the front and rear derailleurs' designs. The resulting Dura-Ace FD-R9100 11-Speed Front Derailleur delivers concrete improvements to its predecessor's shortcomings, behaving far more consistently than the often moody than some of its predecessors, whose changes in attitude could be set off by cable entry angles and cable tension that didn't suit it. How'd they do it' Not by magic, though sometimes we wonder. No, Shimano found a way to redesign the body of the derailleur, equipping it with a new linkage system and integrated cable tension adjuster that does away with the need for a barrel adjuster. The design embraces multiple routing options that its previous version wouldn't dream of allowing, and requires low rider effort to generate precise, crisp shifts. Key big ring shifts in the heated moments of a race are no longer just possible within a strict set of parameters; now, you'll only have to lift a finger. Plus, the derailleur's more compact internals mean that the entire body has shrunk, increasing clearance and eliminating the infuriating cable rub that has irritated many of us to our limits at some point in our cycling careers.

There are two things you can count on with steel frames: they ride like butter and you'll have to spend an inordinate amount of time hunting down a braze-on mount in order to attach any of today's front derailleurs to them. Shimano's Di2 derailleurs are a good case in point, but the Dura-Ace FD-R9150 Front Derailleur Adapter simplifies the hunt. It's an age-old solution to a contemporary problem. Frankly, Di2 front derailleurs are designed to be attached to carbon frames whose seat tubes have such tortured, overwrought shapes that no clamp known to human kind can tame them, so they're all just braze-on derailleurs that mount directly to the frame. This rules out frames with traditional, round, tube-shaped tubes--unless, that is, you've got the right adapter. The FD-R9150 Adapter lets you marry the latest drivetrain technology with your favorite frameset.

Shimano SLX FD-M7020-D 2x11 Front Derailleur Shimano SLX FD-M7020-D 2x11 Front Derailleur
It's never been the sexiest, shiniest Shimano drivetrain, or the cheapest, but this year, SLX has finally been granted its moment in the spotlight. From the looks of things, it's going to be a long moment. Receiving an overhaul spanning from cranksets to trigger shifters, SLX emerged from the dust a glittering new groupset, with the 11-speed appeal of its attention-grabbing siblings, XTR and XT. Replete with trickle-down technology, the SLX FD-M7020-D 2x11 Front Derailleur returns better than ever for 2016, with functionality that belies its affordable price. Arguably the most significant change to the front derailleur this year is its side swing design, accommodating the stubbier chainstays and longer-travel trail bikes and enduro sleds that seem to be spawning directly onto the trails by the day as of late. Shimano also cleaned up the shifting action, aiming for smoother, quieter transitions between small and big ring and back again, without the jingling and heavy-handed lever throwing required by your finicky first hardtail years ago. If you're loathe to part with your granny gear for the times when the singletrack becomes a massive wall in front of you, the FD-M7020 confidently demonstrates that the front derailleur can keep up with changing times as much as any one-by setup.

Shimano SLX FD-M7020-E 2x11 Front Derailleur Shimano SLX FD-M7020-E 2x11 Front Derailleur
We're always excited to hear a rumor of trickle-down technology making its way down the Shimano groupset family line, and this spring, that rumor applied to SLX. Shimano went back to the workshop and took tech from Deore XT and XTR and added it to SLX, giving the hardworking groupset a makeover that significantly raises the bar on what mid-range componentry should be able to do. It also kept it in a price range that's fully accessible to the self-sponsored mountain biker. The SLX FD-M7020-E 2x11 Front Derailleur received its own share of upgrades, and returned to make a strong case that front derailleurs still deserve a place on modern mountain bike frames. One of the biggest changes the FD-M7020-E saw was a shift to a side swing design, which Shimano did to give it compatibility with the stockier chainstays and longer travel enduro rigs popping up on the trails by the minute as of late. This design fits better with modern, energetic rear triangles, giving the front derailleur longevity in a fickle industry. Additionally, Shimano cleaned up the shifting action on the FD-M7020, aiming for cleaner, more precise hops from small ring to big that lend smoothness to your ride, whether you're coasting over the flowy stuff or battling to stay upright on a root-laced climb.

Predictably, our enthusiasm begins to wane as we hop on our trail bikes and start pedaling, with our optimism dropping precipitously when we hit our first of several nausea-inducing climbs. If this inner debate has made building up your new dream bike more complicated than you expected, we'd recommend taking a look at Shimano's all-new SLX drivetrain. The SLX FD-M7025-D 2x11 Front Derailleur will save you a granny gear while still working expertly with the geometry of your modern long-travel enduro frame. Stubby chainstays and energetic rear triangles define the modern trail and enduro frames appearing on the trails as of late, and Shimano took these geometry trends into consideration when redesigning SLX from top-to-bottom, giving it greater tire clearance with these bikes in mind. This direct-mount front derailleur will sit cleanly against your frame, offering improved shifts for a more consistent ride as you step up to the big ring ahead of a smooth descent or drop gears quickly while approaching a wall.

If you haven't heard about Shimano's new redesign of SLX, we don't think it's a stretch to say you'll be seeing a lot more of it out on singletrack soon. SLX has always been a reliable choice for off-road rigs, but this year, it debuts with fresh trickle-down technology from pricier Deore XT in a classy redesign. Shimano still bills SLX as its affordable, workhorse groupset, but the brand has raised the bar on what workhorse actually means, delivering an incredibly capable mix of componentry that functions better than its price should suggest. The SLX FD-M7025-E 2x11 Front Derailleur is no exception to that description; if you're looking to hang onto your granny gear to make climbing more enjoyable, the FD-M7025-E makes a capable addition to your setup. Shimano built its SLX front derailleurs in a huge range of pull and mount types, with this version working as a down pull, E-type. Aside from its routing and mounting specifications, it's exactly the same as the rest of the group. Shimano focused on constructing its SLX front derailleurs to better integrate with modern trail and long-travel enduro bike geometries, with their snappy rear triangles governed by stubby chainstays. The FD-M7025-E promises to fit cleanly and function reliably in the presence of an energetic rear suspension and triangle.

Shimano's redesign of its entire SLX line resulted in changes that not just the budget-focused crowd alone should be excited about. Once again demonstrating the power of trickle-down technology, Shimano took features from its crown jewels, XTR and XT, and moved it down to workhorse SLX, turning the formerly 10-speed drivetrain into an 11-speed do-it-all groupset that's almost a no-brainer for the average mountain bike setup. If racing isn't your thing and shaving grams doesn't keep you up at night, SLX promises a reliable, responsive ride beyond its affordable price. Rather than do away with double and triple cranks all-together, Shimano created the SLX FD-M7025-L 2x11 Front Derailleur to give riders the option to hang onto the extra granny gear for climbing. Though some might insist that the front derailleur is facing extinction, Shimano made sure the FD-M7025 could hold its own with modern equipment. The front derailleur now features the side swing design first seen on XTR, giving it greater tire clearance for the stubbier chainstays that are popping up on every new trail and enduro rig we see gracing the glossies lately. In addition to building the derailleur with long-travel bikes in mind, Shimano improved the shift quality to result in lighter hops from small ring to big. Instead of having to hold the shifter then listen to a whole chorus of clunking and jangling as your chain struggles up to the big ring, you'll be where you want to be in a matter of seconds.

Front derailleurs are pretty single-minded, so we were initially a bit bemused that Shimano insisted on making as many changes as it did to the latest generation of the Ultegra 6800 Front Derailleur. The 6800 model borrows design cues from its more expensive Dura-Ace cousin, which manifest visually as a much longer pull arm. This creates more leverage at the point of chain contact than a shorter pull arm, so shifts are faster and more responsive while requiring less cable pull and a shorter shift lever stroke.

We can't overstate the precision of a Di2 front derailleur, and if you're running double chainrings on the trail, we can't imagine settling for anything other than the 2 x 11 XT Di2 FD-M8070 Front Derailleur. With proper installation, you can forget about dropped chains forever and the woes of chain rub will become just a dark, distant memory. Shifting also becomes quicker, easier, and more precise. All of this is achieved with an increase in shifting power that's never affected by cable stretch or contamination. Cable routing is also simpler and cleaner, and, perhaps most importantly, setup is easier due to Shimano's newest generation of its E-Tube electronics system.

Shimano XT FD-M8020-D 2x11 Front Derailleur Shimano XT FD-M8020-D 2x11 Front Derailleur
11-speed drivetrains were originally only found on high-end road bikes. In the past couple of years, mountain biking's elite groups have adopted 11-speeds. This year Deore XT adopts the 11-speed drivetrain with its M8000 line of components. The Shimano Deore XT FD-M8000-D 2x11 front derailleur is only compatible with direct-mount 2-speed systems.For its move to 11-speed compatibility, Shimano has made some important changes to its XT front derailleurs for the M8000 group. The new derailleur provides wider clearance for the new larger wheels and tires. It's also compatible with the shorter chainstays found on many of today's frames. Even with these changes, Shimano retains the XT front derailleur's efficient cable routing to keep shift action light and quick.This Deore XT Direct Mount Front Derailleur has a flat inboard surface with an upright rib that corresponds to the groove in the flat Direct Mount you'll find on your seat tube. One bolt holds it all together and your only adjustment will be up and down in relation to the chainrings. Since there's no way to twist the derailleur around the seat tube, it goes on lined up perfectly with the chainrings and your shifting should be spot on once the cable tension and limit screws are set. The limit screws are angled outward to facilitate adjustment for convoluted rear suspension designs as well.

Shimano XT FD-M8020-L 2x11 Front Derailleur Shimano XT FD-M8020-L 2x11 Front Derailleur
Shimano has completely revamped its XT line this year to create a component group that mirrors much of the technology found in its top-end XTR group, but with a more wallet-friendly price. The XT FD-M8020-L 2x11 Front Derailleur is at the heart of this group, keeping the drivetrain humming through all types of terrain. The M8020 was designed to improve trail-riding experience and usher the new 11-speed XT group into a more modern age of mountain bikes. It provides an additional 15mm of tire clearance compared to the older model XT front derailleurs to accommodate larger tires and more suspension travel without any negative impact to shifting. It's also compatible with the shorter chainstays that many new rear suspension systems have incorporated. To make the ride even better, Shimano redesigned its cable routing to facilitate lighter shift operation -- less energy to shift, more energy for the pedals. The Shimano XT FD-M8020-L is a front-pull, Side Swing type designed to work effectively with Shimano's new XT 2x11 drivetrain, and includes Shimano's L adapter for Low Clamp mounting. Additional adapters can be purchased for High Clamp, High Direct, and E-Type clamp mounts if needed to move the derailleur to a different frame with different clamp requirements.

Shimano XTR FD-M9000-E Front Derailleur Shimano XTR FD-M9000-E Front Derailleur
All too often, the cycling industry sells us technological breakthroughs and huge advancements in performance that are little more than marketing exercises. That's why we greeted news of Shimano's newest tech, the XTR FD-M9000-E Front Derailleur's side swing action, with some healthy skepticism. When we saw the video detailing the derailleur's benefits, we grew even more skeptical. And then we rode it ourselves and happily ate crow. The new XTR can be run as a 1x, but the side swing feature may be our favorite element of its 11-speed redesign because it makes front shifts feel like rear shifts. It's that smooth and responsive, and it's not something you want to miss out on. The M9000-E's all new side swing design produces very light shifting by increasing the outward pull's strength by a claimed 100%. When shifting with side swing, the derailleur is pulled from the front, moving it out and forward to complement the chain's direction. The side pull mechanism obviously necessitates a change to the cable routing. The cable hops straight across to the derailleur from the down tube, eliminating extra length and unnecessary bends at the bottom bracket or seat tube/top tube joint. The combination of routing and side pull provides a 15% increase in shifting efficiency. The side swing design also nets a total of 15mm of additional clearance, so it accommodates larger tires, longer travel, and shorter chainstays. There are also multiple mounting options, so if your needs change you just need a new mounting interface piece, not a new derailleur. This particular model, the M9000-E, comes with an E-type mount, which attaches to the bottom bracket flange instead of a seat tube clamp. An additional bolt anchors the derailleur in place to a braze-on clamp. The Shimano XTR FD-M9000-E Front Derailleur accommodates triple drivetrains with chain rings up to 40 teeth and a capacity of 18 teeth. Please note that these values can't be adjusted.

SRAM Force 22 Front Derailleur SRAM Force 22 Front Derailleur
The latest iteration of SRAM's Force 22 Front Derailleur boasts two properties that we typically don't see together: accommodating flexibility and unyielding stiffness. The derailleur's willingness to accommodate is the result of SRAM's Yaw technology, which has only just trickled-down to the Force level. Yaw is the equivalent of an auto-trim feature that keeps the derailleur cage aligned with the chain as it moves through the sprockets, making for a truly 22-speed groupset by virtually eliminating chain rub. The derailleur's stiffness comes courtesy of the aluminum and steel body. The incorporation of steel makes for an irresistible force to quickly shift the chain up or down without yielding valuable moments of response time while waiting for a flexing cage to finish throwing the chain--think of it as the opposite of the Close Door buttons on elevators. In case you get a little too overzealous with its stiff shifting, the Force Derailleur also features a removable Chain Keeper to help keep you from throwing your chain while shifting in response to an attack.

The GX 2xll front derailleur is designed to work with SRAM's 10x42 cassette, which provides the widest range of gears ever offered on a 2x drivetrain. That means climbing is easier and descending is faster. Few upgrades can honestly make that heady claim.

SRAM Rival 22 Front Derailleur SRAM Rival 22 Front Derailleur
It was only a matter of time before SRAM's fantastic, pro-level Red 22 and Force 22 drivetrains trickled down into the technological pool that would become the sport-level Rival 22 groupset. The SRAM Rival 22 Front Derailleur captures many of the same design features that make those more expensive derailleurs so great, only without breaking the bank. The most critical element to understand about SRAM's new 22-speed front derailleurs is what they call their Yaw feature. SRAM's Yaw means that the derailleur adjusts its yaw relative to the chain line. In other words, the derailleur cage rotates to align perfectly with the chain in any given position. This not only improves shifting accuracy and speed, it eliminates the need to "trim" the derailleur to prevent the maddening chain rub that can occur toward the back of the derailleur's cage, regardless of what chainring/cog combination you select -- a welcome improvement over virtually all previous drivetrains on the market. All of SRAM's 22-speed front derailleurs, including this Rival version, also feature the revolutionary integrated Chain Spotter, which protects against chain drop, against scratches, and against frustration. The Chain Spotter can be removed, or adjusted independently of the derailleur's position, so it's configurable to any frameset. The derailleur's steel cage is stiff, tough, and has precision alignment markings in the appropriate areas to help with proper installation. The SRAM Rival 22 Front Derailleur's cage has a silver finish, while its hardware and the Chain Spotter are black. It is designed exclusively for use with SRAM 22-speed X-Glide R chainrings and SRAM 22-speed shifters and drivetrain components. It comes only in a braze-on version, with clamp adapters available separately.

This material choice adds a few grams, but it still retains the widely spaced pivots for stiffness and precise, quick shifting. The derailleur cage is also made from steel for maximum durability and is shaped for optimum performance with their X-Glide chainrings. The X9 3x10 High Direct Mount Front Derailleur is specifically designed to work in conjunction with SRAM's 3x10 cranksets. The SRAM X9 3x10 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.

SRAM XX Front Derailleur SRAM XX Front Derailleur
The SRAM XX Low Clamp Front Derailleur is not a triple chainring front derailleur. It's not a compact double front derailleur. It is its own thing. And while it's designed to handle up to a 15-tooth differential between the big and little rings, its cage is shorter and narrower than a triple-specific front derailleur. This is great news for those who fear clearance between their rear suspension and their front derailleur. The aluminum links that shape the travel of the cage are extremely wide, increasing the distance between the pivots, for greater stiffness. The increase in stiffness plays to XX's superior gear-changing ability. The derailleur cage itself is made from steel for maximum durability. SRAM claims the XX front derailleur will work on just about any bike. That's because they have both high and low clamp versions in four sizes each and four different direct mount versions (and there are three different clamps for each chain ring configuration within the direct mount line). Here's a PDF chart so you can determine exactly what you need. In addition, both the high- and low-clamp versions use a thin, flexible steel band clamp that holds quite well at relatively low clamping pressure -- a safe recipe for carbon fiber frames. The SRAM XX Low Clamp Front Derailleur is available configured as either top or bottom pull. The 34. 9 clamp size is adjustable and, with an included shim kit, can be used with frames that require a 31. 8mm clamp. Click here to save when you purchase an XX build kit.
