“Whether you’re a cross-country, trail or all-mountain rider, this X1 group is a great way to get a taste of wide-ratio 1x philosophy.”
“The X1 group has fared great and despite the sometimes peanut-butter-like mud I’ve encountered, I haven’t noticed a distinct difference in performance between the two drives.” (XX1 vs. X1)
“The X1 group looks great and performs well. If you are looking to give 1x a try and don’t mind the extra grams, this drivetrain won’t let you down.”
