Sram XX1: Revolutionizing Mountain Bike Drivetrains
In late October 2012, SRAM released the XX1 drivetrain to cater to the needs of an increasing market, the enduro and trail riders. The goal of the revolutionary drivetrain was to simplify the design, save weight, and increase efficiency. By using a single chainring and an 11-speed cassette (10-42T range), significant weight savings can be found by shedding the front shifter, shifter cable and front derailleur.
Anyone interested in installing this new technology on their bikes must remember that every part of the drivetrain must be changed over to XX1 in order for the system to work properly. Options include both twist and trigger-style shifters and a wide range of chainring sizes to suit your needs. Check out SRAM’s revolutionary XX1 at TBS Bike Parts today!
