I just got this new derailer, but I'v never seen or heard of it before. What year is it? It’s super light, made mostly of composite, and even has cartridge bearings in the jockey wheels. Should I run this instead of my x9 on my DH race bike and just keep the x9 as a spair?

Yeah. that's the original version of the 9.0SL, that was one nice tough derailleur. Little heavier than the newer versions but pretty strong.

the 9.0sl would be what the X.0 line came from...9.0 when to x9, and they had a 7.0 that became the x7.
