Sram X01 Rear Derailleur Type 2.1 - 11 Speed
Thanks to its “horizontal parallelogram” design, X-Horizon can keep the chain gap the same across all 11 gears. By taking vertical movement out of the equation, this design doesn’t just make shifting faster—it reduces shift force and eliminates ghost shifting. 
 
The Roller Clutch Bearing technology reduces bounce and chain slap keeping your drivechain nice and quite even in the roughest of rock gardens. The Cage Lock technology makes wheel removal and installation easier than ever before. These technologies can be found on this Type 2:1 rear mech. Weighting a mear 252g with its super soild carbon cage.

Still the benchmark for weight to performance for 1x Derailliers. Have these on 4 bikes now. The current model has a slight improvement on the cable routing compared with the older ones I am using. Shimano also needs to learn from SRAM that having the ability to lock the deraillier forward is might handy when changing chains after snapping one on a climb.
SRAM's X01 rear Derailleur is a great piece of kit. It performs flawlessly and every bit as well as the higher priced XX1. Merlin Cycles customer service, product selection and prices are second to none!
I own a XX1 11 speed rear derailleur and this shifts just like that one only costs less. It shifts well with either the XX1 or X01 cassette.
Brilliant rear mech. The clutch totally eliminates chain slap and shifting is spot on every time (as long as you set it up right).
