SRAM XX1 Eagle Upgradekit Groupset
Pros & Cons
Pros & Cons
- The XX1 Eagle drivetrain enables you to take on a wide range of terrains while keeping the overall weight down.
- This upgrade kit allows you to use your own crankset.
The Sram XX1 Eagle is the first 1x12 speed group. The XX1 Eagle groupset is faster, quieter, more durable, and more accurate. The extra gear makes it slightly heavier compared to teh 11-speed group bit it is still quite a bit lighter than a double group. The perfect group for cross-country racers!
The XX1 Eagle group is designed based on the technology and design of the XX1 and X01 groupsets, like the X-Horizon rear derailleur, carbon cranks with Direct Mount chain rings, and one piece cassettes. The gold Sram XX1 Eagle groupset already brought up 2 Olympic medals: Nino Schurter and Jenny Rissveds both received the gold medal.
The Eagle cassette has the same tooth design as the 11 speed cassette but with an added 50t sprocket, which makes it: 10t, 12t, 14t, 16t, 18t, 21t, 24t, 28t, 32t, 36t, 42t, 50t. Only the largest chainring is made of aluminium, the others are one piece CNC built. The 12-speed cassette fits the existing XD driver. This means the distance between the sprockets is reduced and the chain is smaller.
Because the cassette is large the X-Horizon rear derailleur design has been adjusted. The cage has become a bit longer and the lower jockey wheel has 14t instead of 12t. The Roller Bearing Clutch has been improved and offers more constant power over the complete stroke.
