Technologies:


X-HORIZON
The X-HORIZON rear derailleur’s ‘straight parallelogram’ design limits all movement to the horizontal axis, which makes ghost shifting impossible while also reducing shift force. For quicker, more exact shifting, the large upper pulley offset design maintains a constant chain gap across all gears.

X-SYNC
SRAM X-SYNC 1x chain rings provide the highest level of performance and durability. The SRAM X-SYNC tall square teeth edges engage the chain earlier than traditional triangle shaped teeth. The sharp and narrow tooth profile, as well as rounded chamfer edges, help manage a deflected chain. To provide the best possible performance in muddy conditions, the X-SYNC chainrings have been designed with mud-clearing recesses for the inner chain links and rollers. Engineered in Germany, X-SYNC rings are an integral part of the SRAM 1x drivetrain.

X-ACTUATION
Developed specifically for SRAM 1x, X-ACTUATION keeps shifting sharp and consistent across the entire cassette.

CAGE LOCK
With CAGE LOCK technology in the rear derailleur, wheel removal and installation—as well as chain installation—becomes faster and simpler. Just pushing the cage forward to create slack and lock it into place.

SPEED METAL
Full metal, 11-speed indexing keeps shifting crisp and precise with Grip Shift.

ROLLING THUNDER
Three rows of ball bearings provide zero friction or play—reducing the force needed to shift and promoting long-term performance under all weather conditions with Grip Shift.

JAWS
Once the Grip Shift shifter and grip interlock securely, forged aluminium clamps on either end reinforce the assembly by locking tightly to handlebar.

So will this fit in below GX?

 

Seems to be getting quite complicated - XX1, XO1, 1X, GX, NX? Is that right?

Brilliant!

Rick Sanchez, Feb 11 2016 05:49

Will buy that cassette just because it is black(er than Shimano's)  

Odinson, Feb 11 2016 05:54

So, this would compete against an 11-speed SLX offering, if Shimano had one?

raptor-22, Feb 11 2016 06:05

Yes sort of. SRAM don't really compete directly with shimano on group set tiering. Their bud time is too trickle as mush off their high end technology down and spread it across many price points.

There's very little difference between xx1 and xo1 but xtr stands alone with xt only sharing some forged components.sram shares whole parts with xx1xo1 and gx1

ja but its only 11-42, not 10. Shimano, Sunrace etc do the same.

rock, Feb 11 2016 06:14

The "most affordable 1x crank is your current crank with a chain ring from Rapide/ Kalbo / etc."

Odinson, Feb 11 2016 06:18

Yes, but it gives you the option of a full SRAM 11-speed set-up without shelling out for the XD-driver.

raptor-22, Feb 11 2016 06:20

ja but its only 11-42, not 10. Shimano, Sunrace etc do the same.


That and the lack of a need for a xd driver body is the cost saving comes in.

The shifters are the same as gx1
Crank is a reworked truvativ.
Rear derailleur is similar to gx1 with different printing on them

the nerd, Feb 11 2016 06:35

All the above is irrelevant except one point: 

 

11 speed cassette on my current hopes. 

 

Done. 

EmptyB, Feb 11 2016 06:52

Nice one Sram...another option is always good!

rock, Feb 11 2016 07:06

ok, you know what, for the sake of being able to get a twist shifter for a reasonable price, I'm keen.

Brawler, Feb 11 2016 09:37

Very heavy and plastic internals. No thanks.

Odinson, Feb 11 2016 09:37

Nice write-up done by enduro-mtb.com: http://enduro-mtb.co...drivetrain-yet/

Hairy, Feb 11 2016 10:43

Now to see Shimano make a bold move against this great looking offering. ......in about 3 years time. ...

Bizkit031, Feb 12 2016 05:45

See Shimano are having big price drops on components from SLX up but not sure if this is going to be world wide or just USA and Euro

JTK, Feb 12 2016 07:56

to be honest. I think this is brilliant. May just move to SRAM because of this...  10t out back is not required. Just put two teeth up on the chainring to accomodate for that if you really feel that 11t on a MTB is a problem ;D

rock, Feb 12 2016 08:02

Very heavy and plastic internals. No thanks.

 

exactly what you would expect for the price.

 

Now imagine that ZAR was still R8.80 to the USD

I'd still go for the XT cassette tbh

Captain Fastbastard Mayhem, Feb 12 2016 08:07

I'm looking at that crank...

koukie, Feb 12 2016 08:10

14$ for a 11speed chain, that is nice!

Skott5, Feb 12 2016 08:11

I'm looking at that crank...

 

I like the look of that crank.

The full NX conversion should cost roughly 6K. Doable for us plebs. 

Way better than when 1x 11 first hit the market.

We just need frames and forks to follow suite ..

TheJ, Feb 12 2016 08:18

For the love of DOG why don't they make 180mm cranksets in 1x ??
