Wednesday spy shot: SRAM XO DH Mech

June 15, 2011

Spotted at Leogang, being put on to Greg Minnaar’s Santa Cruz V-10. Greg was also running a new Blackbox Boxxer fork. Neither seemed to slow him down.

This new mech is designed to work with close-ratio cassettes like modern downhill bikes run. With Peaty running XO brakes in disguise last year, could this mean that there’ll be a DH flavoured group coming out later this year? Or is this just a special-order mech for the fast boys (and girls)?

We pressed our contacts at SRAM and they came up with this hugely vague statement:

“…we are capitalizing on the versatility of the X0 groupset to bring downhill racers and riders optimized performance for their kind of riding.”


Small cage, Blackbox and, no, you can't buy it.
