New Cogs On The Block: SRAM XX1

Jordan, Jonnie, Joey, Donny and Danny talk about what it’s like to be part of an eleven piece all mountain gear set up!

This has nothing to do with 1980’s US boybands but more to do with the new Sram XX1 groupset.

We have a first ride feature on this new 1*11 groupset in the latest issue of the magazine (due out this week) so to coincide with that here’s a video we did with SRAM product man Chris Hilton.

Before you shout that we don’t need more gears, the XX1 is firmly aimed at the enduro/xc end of the market and does away with the faff of two rings up front and the front mech. It’s just a simpler system. Have a watch below and listen to what Chris Hilton has to say.
