SRAM Unveils a NEW 52-Tooth cassette across GX, XO1 And XX1 drivetrains and since it is AXS, it is cross compatible with drop bar AXS shift brake levers. This comes just weeks after SRAM launched a new wider gear range for their road line as well.
SRAM launches the newest updates to its popular Eagle drivetrain. Most notably, SRAM expanded the capability of Eagle cassettes with a 52-tooth offering a 520% range. Furthermore, SRAM added new color options to complement their three new mechanical drivetrains. These new Eagle drivetrains are ready to tackle the trails under the hands of any rider.
Why is This Good News for Gravel Riders?
Put the launch of the mechanical group aside and think about the ever popular mullet build. Pair eTap AXS drop bar levers with an Eagle AXS rear derailleur, Eagle chain, 10-52 Eagle cassette, and your choice of either a mountain or road 1x crankset to build the raddest drop bar bike that is capable of just about ANYTHING! This is 100% business up front and party in back.
For those of you not familiar with SRAM’s mountain bike line -up and AXS compatibility, all 11-52 cassettes are compatible with SRAM Eagle AXS rear derailleurs. SRAM’s two levels of AXS components are outlined below and both offer 52-tooth cassette options. Mix and match Force with X01 or XX1 and go big and pair up your XX1 with SRAM Red.
