Press Release | SRAM introduces the XX1 black edition and more
Today SRAM presents a Black-Edition of their successful XX1 drivetrain, a high direct mount front derailleur cover and a carbon crank boot to protect the crank from surface damage.
SRAM XX1 BLACK
The 1x drivetrain that launched an XC World Championship, SRAM XX1 was built to be simpler, lighter and more durable than any other. Calibrated to work together, SRAM XX1 components deliver remarkable chain control and rapid, high-precision shifting. Which gives serious riders exactly the edge they need. Now available in black. UNSTOPPABLE.
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—a branded cover with a bold design tying the rider to the SRAM 1x revolution.
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.
