For his final assignment* for Singletrack we sent Jon to Schweinfurt, Germany to get the lowdown on SRAM’s drivetrain development; he came back with the story of SRAM XX1 in moving pictures.
First up we’ve got a video featuring Jon’s initial thoughts from the press launch, plus a quick overview of the groupset, followed by three more in-depth films.
Sit back, watch and want.
Singletrack meets SRAM XX1
Jon chats about his intial thoughts on SRAM XX1 plus an overview of the groupset
SRAM XX 1 – CHAPTER 1: DEVELOPMENT
Driven by a cutting-edge, single-ring carbon crank and seamless component integration, SRAM 1X drivetrain delivers flawless chain management and faster, more precise shifting. But the relationship between XX1 components goes far beyond fitment. From the X-HORIZON™ rear derailleur with TYPE 2 technology to the super wide range 11-speed 10-42T cassette, each component is designed to function synergistically with the others, achieving what no other 1X drivetrain has before. Filmed and edited by Victor Lucas.
