Sram XX1 hit the mountain bike market by storm and the component group’s popularity is at full hurricane force. For years, mountain bikers have been adopting 1×9 and 1×10 drivetrains for their simplicity and lightweight. Sram has taken that a few steps further, refining the 1x drivetrain and adding an eleventh gear to make the whole system work extremely well. Today, Sram’s own Technical Ambassador, Doug “Double D” Dalton gives us an awesome Sram XX1 Review. He covers the different components and how they all work together to make your cross-country and trail riding that much better.
Of course, Sram XX1 isn’t your only option when it comes to mountain bike gearing. The great engineers behind the bicycle have created a plethora of bike drivetrain and gearing options to suit your riding style. I encourage you to learn as much as possible about gears by reading our bicycle gearing tutorial and stop by your local bike shop in Park City to be sure your bike is set up correctly for you.
