- SRAM AXS™ enabled, allowing easy personalization
- 36t-max derailleur is compatible with 10-36, 10-33, and 10-28 cassettes
- 33t-max derailleur is compatible with 10-26, 10-28, and 10-33 cassettes
- Large X-SYNC™ pulleys for increased durability and efficiency
- Compatible with existing eTap® batteries
SRAM X-SYNC 1x chainrings provide the highest level of performance and durability. The SRAM X-SYNC tall square teeth edges engage the chain earlier than traditional triangle shaped teeth. The sharp and narrow tooth profile, as well as rounded chamfer edges, help manage a deflected chain. To provide the best possible performance in muddy conditions, the X-SYNC chainrings have been designed with mud-clearing recesses for the inner chain links and rollers. Engineered in Germany, X-SYNC rings are an integral part of the SRAM 1x drivetrain. Accept no imitation.
All of the underlying tech in our new SRAM RED eTap groupset, such as wireless shifting, advanced battery power management, and mechatronics technologies, are meant to serve one ultimate purpose: to facilitate the most intuitive and consistent shifting available. This shift logic is called eTap. Right lever makes it harder, left lever makes it easier, both levers shift the front derailleur. Simple, unmistakable, and intuitive.
Orbit technology is an innovative new form of derailleur motion control. It utilizes silicon fluid as part of an elegant and ultra-lightweight damper system. Compared to a standard friction clutch system, Orbit technology places no additional resistance on the rear derailleur’s spring when under slow or light movement. This means easier shifting and rear wheel removal. And while riding, the fluid damper reduces chain bounce. It’s rock-solid reliability for both 1x and 2x systems.
AXS is SRAM’s new bike component integration system that connects electronic bicycle components and software. The SRAM AXS app allows riders to see battery status, change component behavior, personalize controls, get maintenance reminders, and update firmware.
Road bikes are faster and more capable than ever before, and riders are expanding what’s possible with drop bar bikes. X-Range is gearing for today’s road riding. We completely reimagined road gearing for wider range, more useful and smoother gear progression, as well as smarter shift settings—enabled by AXS. With X-Range, you’re always in the right gear.

CYCLING COMPONENT OF THE YEAR
The shifting is great, and it provides such usable gear ratios for the type of riding it is designed for, whether that's on or off-road.
QUIET & COMFORTABLE
"Shifting in any condition is easy, whether rattling on a gravel descent or commuting in snow, with lobster-mitt gloves on."
GEAR OF THE YEAR
"...it’s just so consistently good; battery life is impressive, shifting accurate and consistent, and the gearing spread is just what I’ve been looking for..."
SUPERB OVERALL PERFORMANCE
“…the smaller gap of just 13 teeth up front feels good. The front derailleur works as quiet and reliable as no other front derailleur. Same for the new Flat-Top-Chain. Wear was surprisingly little.”
