- Reverb AXS – Any Good??
I’ve just finished building my Solaris Max with Eagle AXS and it’s bloody lovely.
Currently debating whether or not to go with the AXS dropper as well but it’s a not cheap and I’ve only read reviews of it when they were released.
Anyone using one and if so how’s it going?
Is reliability good with them?Posted 1 month agotimbog160Subscriber
Bloody good in use. Faultless reliability – not touched it since fitting in middle of last year I think it was. Having said that I have 2 bikes with the AXS gearing on but have only upgraded the post on one, but will prob upgrade the other as and when, but not in quite the same rush…
The other advantage of having both the dropper and gears is you’ve always got tow batteries if you get caught out – set your post slightly to a compromise and then swap the battery into the gears.Posted 1 month ago
Anyone know if you can operate AXS dropper from the AXS gear shifter? Would be nice to remove another bit of clutter.
Yes, and no.
Yes, you can swap the button actions between gear and reverb controllers.
No, you can’t control all 3 actions from a single controller as the shifter only has 2 buttons.Posted 1 month ago
Although just found this on SRAM US FAQ’s –Posted 1 month ago
Controller touchpoints are totally customizable to your preferences, allowing you to choose which paddle does what through the AXS™ app. Choose from three functions: Inboard shift. Outboard shift. Dropper. Yes, use one of the touchpoints to control your electronic Reverb AXS™ dropper seatpost.DickBartonMember
Although it says that…you can’t…the top switch is a rocker on the drivetrain so operates same action as the top button.
You can’t separate them (unless there is a beta version of the app that somehow allows that).
As said above, you can change which button does what – so you could downshift and reverb on right hand but then you’d upshift on left hand. You can’t do all 3 on 1 controller, but you can mix and match what you want the 3 options to do.Posted 1 month ago
Yeah, so with both the reverb and shifter controllers you have 3 buttons total (the shifter only has 2 buttons, the knuckle rocker is just an extension of one of the paddles) which you can reassign as you like, but you still need both controllers if you have both axs shifting and the dropper.
Unless they update the software to give multiple actions for a button (long press, short press, double click and so-on) you’re stuck with 2 controllers.Posted 1 month ago
