It’s an all-new derailleur that’s specifically designed and optimized to be motor-driven instead of cable-actuated. AXS™ powered components enable customization and scale to an individual rider’s liking via the AXS™ App. It features a shorter cage for 10mm more ground clearance, with more chain wrap on the cassette to sit slightly further forward, and further inboard from mechanical Eagle™. The Eagle AXS™ derailleur is smart enough to protect itself thanks to its incredibly resilient Overload Clutch. In the event of an impact, the motor gearbox disengages, giving the derailleur freedom to move, and instantly returns back to its position for a seamless experience for the rider. The system is tested to IP69K water and dust proofing standard for creek crossings, mud splatterings and the resulting post-ride pressure washings.
- Enduro focus and trail ready
- Forged aluminum cage
- Stainless hardware
- Black/Polar colorways
- Eagle™ technology
- Overload Clutch protection
- AXS™ enabled componentry software that makes it possible to both program and personalize new SRAM and RockShox components
- System is completely water and dust proof to IP69K
- Eagle AXS™ is designed to work with X-DOME™ Eagle™ cassettes only, providing the most precise, silent, and reliable shift performance available.
With CAGE LOCK™ technology in the rear derailleur, wheel removal and installation—as well as chain installation—becomes faster and simpler. Just push the cage forward to create slack and lock it into place.
ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™
ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™ technology eliminates derailleur bounce and chain slap without sacrificing precision.
This rear derailleur’s “straight parallelogram” design limits all movement to the horizontal axis, which makes ghost shifting impossible while also reducing shift force. For quicker, more exact shifting, the large upper pulley offset design maintains a constant chain gap across all gears.
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.
Eagle™ technology represents our newest 1x drivetrain technology. Eagle™ is a lighter, simpler, more durable, and easier to use drivetrain. Eagle™ features all-new 1x components, engineered for even greater durability and performance while maintaining a significant weight advantage over other drivetrain solutions. Eagle™ technology also provides an expanded gear range of 500%, which is equal to 2x11 drivetrains.
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.
