Technology

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.

HollowPin™

We employ HollowPin™ construction on all SRAM top of the line PowerChains. HP yields plate retention strength, front and rear shifting efficiency, and low weight benchmarks unreachable in solid pin chain applications.

X-SYNC™

SRAM X-SYNC™ 1X chain rings 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™ chain rings 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.

Tested: Ten Months On SRAM XX1

"In conclusion, it’s still the same old drivetrain system we have had since the late 1800s, but XX1 is its biggest evolutionary step forward in a long time. It is simple, silent, reliable and rather resilient to real world use. All things you don’t normally expect from a boutique drivetrain. In short, I would find it hard to go back to anything else now.”
