The 11-36 XG-1080 is the perfect complement to an X0 drivetrain. At under 240g, it's light, but that's just the beginning. The XG-1080 uses a hybrid construction that allows us to make this cassette without a spider, similar to the XX XG-1099. The XG-1080 cogs are individually made, helping achieve high performance, low weight, and great value.
- High performance, low weight, and great value
- Mud-clearing open design similar to our X-DOME™ cassette
- 11-36 gearing provides the perfect range for MTB enthusiasts and trail riders
- ISO 4210 compliant. See Declaration of Conformity for details.
When we launched our road technology from scratch we reapplied our MTB proven SRAM 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel : derailleur movement). EA helps to simplify and stabilize the uneasy act of balancing rear derailleur hanger design, tight cog spacing, and exact cable tension. The result: the easiest index shifting system to set up—and it stays that way.
Imagine being able to shift smoothly at any time, no matter what. We’re talking full-power shifts. Up, down, whatever the trail demands. The benefit of the X-GLIDE™ drivetrain is simple, yet, when you think about it, incredibly impactful to the way you ride. Flawless shifting means you’ll never again compromise your speed and power in unpredictable off-road terrain. Here’s how we did it: TRUVATIV’s crank engineers threw away the old standards and developed a new chainring geometry from the ground up. They precisely paired the different-sized chainrings and redesigned where and how the chain engages with the rings. By aligning the chainring pick-up rivets to the chain pivot pin—rather than the middle of the chain link—you get double the shift opportunities. No more missed shifts, ever. X-GLIDE™ puts you in THE RIGHT GEAR, right now.
