With a resolute focus on 1x gearing set-ups, SRAM have decisively shaped the landscape of mountain bikes and been responsible for a host of advances in recent years. They show no sign of slowing down either, and their Eagle technology, found on the latest XX1 and X01 groupsets, cements their developments within the high-end segment. Thanks to the huge gear range, now upped to 500%, finer gradations between the gears, and countless other details, the Eagle set-up masterfully improves shifting. Now there’s nothing to stop the dominance of 1x set-ups, and more frame designers can profit from these advantages. The SRAM XX1 Eagle is quite simply the best drivetrain that SRAM have ever built.
