One. Technology.


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 consistent chain gap across all gears.

Derailleur movement limited to horizontal axis.
Upper pulley offset provides constant chain gap.


A CNC-machined, “wide tooth, narrow tooth” pattern is repeated around the entire chainring, perfectly mirroring the chain’s inner and outer links for maximum control.


X-DOME technology creates an incredibly lightweight, precise and strong cassette. The open design aids in mud clearance, giving you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life.

Roller Bearing Clutch™

Roller Bearing Clutch technology eliminates derailleur bounce and chain slap without sacrificing precision.


The MINI CLUSTER™ hybrid cassette construction combines three small cogs that are CNC-machined out of a single block of billet steel with an additional eight cogs that are individually pinned together. The result: a cassette that’s light, durable and equipped with a 10-42 gear range that’s a perfect fit for any ride.

Cage Lock™

With CAGE LOCK Technology in the rear derailleur, wheel removal and installation—as well as chain installation—becomes faster and simpler. Just pushing the cage forward to create slack and lock it into place.

Just push the cage forward—creating slack—and lock it in place. The chain stays perfectly loose, letting the derailleur swing out of the way. When you’re ready to ride again, simply unlock the cage and go.

XD Driver Body™

XD is a driver body design that allows the use of the SRAM 1X™ 10-42 Cassette and provides an improved interface.

Full Pin™

FULL PIN™ technology uses eleven lightweight, stamped steel cogs held together with 123 high-strength stainless steel pins. The result: a cassette that’s extremely light, durable and equipped with SRAM’s super wide 10-42 gear range that’s a perfect fit for any ride. The open design similar to our X-DOME™ cassette aids in mud clearance, giving you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life.

Hard Chrome™

The XX1 Chain has 4 times the elongation (wear) resistance to our other chains. This is due to the new finishing process on the inner links and rollers. Push pin strength, and ultimate strength are equivalent to our current chains. The XX1 chain lasts longer and is just as strong.


Developed specifically for SRAM 1X™, X-ACTUATION keeps shifting sharp and consistent across the entire 10- to 42-tooth cassette.

Rolling Thunder™

Three rows of ball bearings provide zero friction or play—reducing the force needed to shift and promoting long-term performance under all weather conditions with Grip Shift.


With durable JET™ black finish, the cassette looks as tough as it performs—ride after ride. JET™ finish provides a higher level of corrosion resistance.

Speed Metal™

Full metal, 11-speed indexing keeps shifting crisp and precise with Grip Shift.


Light, strong and precise, the MINI BLOCK™ X-DOME™ cassette lets you bring the right kind of power to every ride. This 7-speed cassette designed for downhill features an optimized gear range that eliminates the need for double/triple shifts to get in the gear you want.


Once the Grip Shift shifter and grip interlock securely, forged aluminum clamps on either end reinforce the assembly by locking tightly to handlebar.
