Looking to buy a long cage SRAM XO 9-speed derailleur and I came across a GOLD model. It looks like the actual SS one but certain parts are in gold color.
Can't find any reference on the SRAM website and I wonder what this is. Limited run, older model?

No, it's just a gold colored one. They have green, blue red and maybe some other colors. If you have never had an XO before, you'll like it. They shift really well, rarely need re-tuning and are an open design which makes cleaning easy. The only problem is they need compatible (1:1) shifters. bk
