SRAM today announced the new XX1 ‘Black,’ a gunmetal-colored version of XX1
Riders looking for the top-notch 11-speed group from SRAM but want it in black can now have their cake and eat it too. Well, almost: there is no XX1 Black cassette, so if you want a fully blacked-out setup you’ll still have to look to X01 to complete the package. SRAM also added injection-molded plastic crank boots and a direct mount front derailleur cover to mask that unsightly stump where your front mech used to be. According to this morning’s communication from SRAM, these parts should be available now.
Here are the highlights from SRAM’s press release:
• XX1 CRANKSET WITH X-SYNC™ DIRECT MOUNT CHAIN RING
• XX1 X-HORIZON™ REAR DERAILLEUR
• XX1 TRIGGER SHIFTER
• XG-1199 X-DOME™ CASSETTE
• XD™ DRIVER BODY
• PC-XX1 CHAIN
HIGH DIRECT MOUNT FRONT DERAILLEUR COVER
As mountain bikers make the move to SRAM 1x™, they’re ditching their front derailleurs for simpler shifting, lighter weight and a more durable drivetrain. But with high direct mount frames, riders are left with an unnecessary mounting surface. SRAM turns this into a statement with the new SRAM 1x™ Badge.
The SRAM 1x™ Badge is a small, CNC aluminum cover for mountain bikers who decide to eliminate their front derailleur in favor of SRAM 1x™.
CARBON CRANK BOOT
SRAM’s cranks are strong and tough, ready for any kind of ride. So it’s inevitable that pedal strikes and debris will chip away at the end of the crank. SRAM’s Carbon Crank Boot is an upgrade that combats the wear and tear that comes with hard riding. The boot protects the crank from surface damage and keeps the rider’s style perfectly in tact.
