We will begin providing product to the market on March 26, 2021. Are there different colour variants available? GX Eagle AXS will be available in GX’s lunar colourway. Can I fit SRAM GX Eagle AXS to any mountain bike and what are the compatibility requirements for GX Eagle AXS? All current bikes and frames compatible with Eagle today will be compatible with GX Eagle AXS. GX Eagle AXS requires an XD driver body for cassette installation, just like the majority of our current 1x drivetrains. GX Eagle AXS cranksets use SRAM DUB bottom brackets, compatible with almost all current BB standards. How does SRAM GX Eagle AXS connect and integrate with other wireless components that SRAM makes? All AXS components can connect to one another using our proprietary encrypted wireless network. The AXS mobile app is used for personalization of the component controls and to serve as a single access point for all SRAM AXS connected products. Additional connectivity included with AXS is ANT+ and Bluetooth. Does SRAM GX Eagle AXS have smartphone connectivity? AXS components have Bluetooth connectivity through the SRAM AXS app. If there is a firmware update, it can be handled through the app. There is no dongle. What prevents an AXS groupset on one bike from wirelessly interacting or interfering with an AXS groupset on another bike? SRAM AXS uses a fully encrypted, secure and proprietary SRAM wireless protocol that has been proven in the real world in our road drivetrain applications and more recently on the World Cup circuit. Is SRAM AXS waterproof? The GX Eagle AXS system is completely water and dust proof to the IP69K international standard. Initially developed for construction vehicles and food sanitization, the IP69K standard validates systems that require regular pressurized cleaning. For a mountain biker, it means no hesitation to head out when the weather looks less than ideal. When washing AXS components be sure to avoid high pressure washing, like other components on a bicycle there are many moving parts with lubrications that can be washed away with aggressive washing techniques. Are RED eTap AXS shift levers compatible with GX Eagle AXS rear derailleurs? Yes. All AXS components can connect to one another. You can use SRAM RED eTap AXS shift levers to build a drop bar bike with an GX Eagle AXS drivetrain. The GX Eagle AXS drivetrain is also compatible with the road BlipBox and control buttons. What chainring size options do you offer with SRAM GX Eagle AXS Groupsets? Aftermarket complete group sets will come equipped with a 32T chainring on GX Eagle AXS. Aftermarket Eagle chainrings will be available in 30T, 32T, 34T, 36T, 38T. What cassette size ranges do you offer for GX Eagle AXS? SRAM GX Eagle AXS uses the X-DOME Eagle cassette with a 10-50T or 10-52T. Is there a cassette available with an 11-tooth start so I don’t have to change the driver on my rear wheel to XD? SRAM offers a PG-1230 Eagle cassette which utilizes the HG splined driver body interface. This is compatible with all of our Eagle drivetrain parts as part of the Eagle ecosystem. However, for optimum performance the XG-1275 cassette is used in the GX Eagle AXS offering. Will a new RED AXS road chain work on a SRAM Eagle drivetrain? No. SRAM EAGLE chains and SRAM RED AXS chains have different dimensions and are not cross compatible. The derailleur, Cassette and chain should always “match”. When using an Eagle cassette or derailleur, use a matching Eagle chain. When using a SRAM RED cassette and derailleur, use a RED chain. Are SRAM GX Eagle AXS PowerLocks different from SRAM RED eTap AXS 12-speed PowerLocks? Yes they are. Eagle PowerLocks can be easily differentiated by the word “Eagle” stamped on the side. What is the max cog size that is compatible with GX Eagle AXS rear derailleurs? 52T. GX Eagle AXS derailleurs are designed to be used with both Eagle 10-50T and 10-52T cassettes. What is the Overload Clutch? The GX 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 primary purpose of the Overload Clutch is to protect the derailleur shift motor, but it serves to protect your derailleur and derailleur hanger from damage as a by-product. A very helpful by-product. How robust is the GX Eagle AXS derailleur? Several design features increase the robustness of the GX Eagle AXS derailleur. The gearbox and motor clutch, the shorter cage, more chain wrap, and more precise shift control all add to a more durable system. We also have extreme water and dust proof qualities built into all our AXS components. Are 11-speed RED eTap derailleur batteries compatible with GX Eagle AXS and SRAM RED eTap AXS derailleurs? Yes. Both groups use the same SRAM batteries. Visit the SRAM website for further information.

  11. Since the announcement of NX Eagle, almost a year ago, we’ve seen the release of the ultra high-end electronic Eagle AXS systems. With these sort of components more often than not making the headlines, it's good to remind ourselves that SRAM is cognisant of the everyday rider and their budgets. That said, entering the world of 12-speed is still a fair investment but consider that the entire NX Eagle groupset costs less than an XX1 Eagle cassette on its own. In comparison to the early(ish) one-by systems I mucked about with in the past, the Eagle systems (including NX Eagle) are simply brilliant. I started off with a bodged together 1x9 configuration which, in hindsight, was pretty terrible. The progression to 10 speed and a clutch derailleur helped somewhat. I finally got the taste of 11-speed luxury with a SRAM NX upgrade kit and later I moved onto the GX version. At the time, I was fairly convinced that 11-speed covered my needs. But (as should be expected really) the new 12-speed Eagle platform quickly changed my mind, with the utility of the additional range quickly becoming apparent. Diving into the differences The NX Eagle groupset is largely similar to the more expensive Eagle groupsets. The big difference is the materials used in construction along with more efficient manufacturing techniques taking up less machine time. Where the more expensive Eagle components use carbon and aluminium, NX Eagle uses steel and plastic and bearings are replaced with bushing. This makes that NX Eagle heavier but the underpinning technology remains largely the same, with almost indistinguishable functioning out on the trail. The material difference with the NX Eagle groupset, however, is the cassette. The Cassette With the demise of the double, or even triple chainring, the cassette is the heart of the groupset. So it is important to note that the NX Eagle cassette (much like the NX 11-speed cassette) differs from the rest of the Eagle family in two ways: 1) the gear range and 2) the freehub body interface. The Eagle XX1, X01, and GX cassettes all have a a gear spread starting at 10 tooth up to the near dinner plate sized 50 tooth. The NX Eagle cassette has a larger 11 tooth cog while maintaining the large 50 tooth biggest cog. One tooth might not sound like much but the difference is a 454.5% range on the NX Eagle cassette versus a 500% range on the other Eagle cassettes. A benefit of the larger 11 tooth cog is that the Eagle NX cassette can accommodate a normal spline (Shimano-type) freehub body. All other Eagle cassettes require SRAM’s XD Driver system. This results in additional costs for riders needing to adapt their existing hub from a spline type to an XD Driver. This is one way that NX Eagle helps to reduce the costs of upgrading to 12-speed. As the XD Driver Body is hub brand specific, it cannot be included as a part in the groupset. The NX Eagle cassette is fairly heavy at 614 grams. That is a result of the materials used and cost effective construction techniques. The NX Eagle cassette is pieced together from 12 stamped steel cogs. The largest four cogs are then riveted to an aluminium spider with the remaining cogs sliding onto the freehub and separated by spacers. A lockring holds all the cogs in place. Because of this bulkier construction and the use of steel for all cogs, the NX Eagle cassette is the only cassette in the Eagle range that SRAM a confident for use on ebikes. The cranks and gears The NX Eagle cranks are shaped from 6000 series aluminium, where GX Eagle uses the higher grade 7000 series. The cranks are designed for direct mounted chainrings, specifically SRAM’s own X-Sync 2 chainring which is held in place by three Torx bolts. The crankset pairs with SRAM’s Dub bottom bracket (generally not included in the groupset bundle) which is compatible with most frames. The chainring is stamped from steel and features all the same Eagle technology including the kinked tooth profile to improve chain retention. Likewise, the derailleur is packed with all the same features found further up the Eagle range. The same straight parallelogram design featuring a roller bearing clutch to keep the chain tight and the cage lock to hold the derailleur out of harm's way when removing the back wheel. The Eagle shifter lever is plastic compared to the carbon one found at the top of the range and it rotates on a bushing versus a bearing. Interestingly, the NX Eagle shifter is the lightest shifter in the Eagle range. The NX Eagle chain uses a heavier solid pin construction. Eagle Compatibility Aside from the cassette and the freehub body requirements, NX Eagle is fully interchangeable with components across the Eagle family. This is convenient for mixing and matching while dipping into another Eagle range for a specific component when it makes sense.For example, if I were upgrading to NX Eagle under my own steam, I’d have taken advantage of this cross-compatibility. My bike already has an XD Drive freehub body, as I have a GX 11-speed drivetrain fitted. So hunting for a splined freehub body makes little sense when I could spend that additional money on a GX Eagle cassette with the full 10-50T range while still benefiting from the cost saving of NX Eagle through the rest of the groupset. Weights You can see a comparison of the claimed weights of each component across the SRAM Eagle family compared to the NX Eagle groupset, along with the real-life weights from our review parts below:Weight comparison across the SRAM Eagle family (in grams): SRAM NX Eagle Claimed Weights vs Our Measurements (in grams): Pricing The pricing for the NX Eagle groupset and upgrade kit varies from retailer to retailer. But it seems that without any sort of discount, a complete NX Eagle groupset is priced at around R6,500 while the upgrade kit is approximately R5,000. The upgrade kit includes the cassette, derailleur, chain, and shifter, excluding the crankset with chainring. Riding Eagle NX I've had the Eagle NX groupset on my Pyga Stage for just over three months. It is the same bike that I tested the GX Eagle system on a few years ago. When not sporting test drivetrains, the bike is dressed in 11-speed GX.I notice very little difference between the general performance and shifting between NX Eagle and GX Eagle groupsets. From my experience with XX1 and X01 Eagle on other bikes, the feel of the shifter is a little more premium to the touch (the plastic NX Eagle shifter gives it away) but there is little to distinguish them at their main task, changing gears. Weight is really the defining difference between the Eagle families and, of course, the slightly reduced gear range of the NX Eagle cassette. Over the three months of testing, the NX Eagle groupset has functioned flawlessly. The only maintenance required was a twist or two of the barrel adjuster to accommodate the stretching of the new cable. Otherwise, the shifter developed no play and the derailleur remained crisp and accurate. SRAM’s chain retention is renowned and NX Eagle did not disappoint, with clatter and noise kept mostly underwraps. The test groupset arrived with a 32 tooth chainring. I understand that for many riders this might be the optimal size but, for me, sizing up to a 34 tooth chainring would better suit my riding. Furthermore, if you consider that NX Eagle lacks the smaller 10 tooth cog on the cassette, you’re going to need some added grunt if you plan to power along dirt road at any considerable speed in the 11 tooth. Conclusion The NX Eagle groupset offers a 12-speed entry point that competes in features and functionality with groupsets twice the price. While NX Eagle performances flawlessly, there are two obvious compromises with the lower price tag: weight and gear range. As a fan of brands trying to bring their high-end technology to a broader market, the Eagle NX groupset certainly opens up more options.
  12. Where can i get? anyone bought/source one locally? I'm still waiting a response from Cape Cycle Systems....
  13. Ahoy hubland. I've got an issue with my bike's (2017 Trek Stache, stock brakes) SRAM Level TL brake lever. The pin which fixes the lever to the body (circled in red below) is loose, and walks out during rides. I can press it back in with my thumb usually, and luckily the lever's return spring tension causes it to rotate slightly and jam into the hole, stopping it from falling out completely. This is obviously no bueno, but I'm not finding a lot of advice or information on this on the intermatronz. Its only the one lever doing it, and judging by the other lever this should have some form of retaining mechanism inside as that pin rotates too but doesn't walk out. Is this a replaceable component? Common issue? Recommended fixes? Thanks in advance!

  15. Hi all, I am at a crossroads here. I broke my one Shimano XT 2x shifter, so the one thought train is to instead of replace with another 2x10 shifter set, to make the jump and upgrade to 12sp. The catch comes in that I have a power tap rear disc hub (G2), a non-boost (QR) frame and I am trying to find a way to minimize the changes required.. The current options are as follows: Sunrace 11-50T cassette (MZ90), which is suited specifically to SRAM drivetrains., and then go SRAM GX? Sunrace 11-51T cassette (MZ903), suited to Shimano drivetrains. I cannot find stock of this in SA. The thought would then be a Shimano SLX drivetrain? I believe the difference is in the spacing they implement on the two cassettes. The 11T at the bottom negates having to change the hub, and will fit a standard Shimano HG freehub or equivalent (Non micro spline hubs). Crank is not an issue, as that can be easily converted. Does anyone have any other suggestions that work or are known to work in this scenario? All suggestions are welcome. For those that have tested SLX and GX, what would be the verdict, considering pricing and spares? Regards.
  16. Taken off a Trainerroad thread Looks interesting, especially for those who seem keen on 1x for the road Here is what you would need. Sram Shifters from Dirk. (90 Euros for the modified guts so maybe a little more for the guts and brake levers) Sram 1x Rear derailleur (Long Cage: CX1, Rival1, Apex1) (anywhere from $50-$150) Sram XDR Driver (Sram’s freehub for their newer AXS stuff) (around $70) Sram Force AXS 12 speed 10-33 or 10-36 cassette (around $175) Fouriers Extender or other extender. (around $40) Sram AXS chain or other Sram/KMC 12 speed chain (yes you can use a non AXS chain on AXS cassettes) $30
  17. Good morning Over the weekend, the shifter lever on my SRAM Force 10 speed snapped off. Please see image. Can this be repaired? Or would it be easier and cheaper to buy new shifters? Any ideas as to where I could get a replacement would be greatly appreciated. Or should I be looking at an upgrade to a new 11 speed groupset? Thanks in advance.
  18. Hi All, When i bought a new bike a while ago that came with Eagle, I did not get a chain gap adjustment tool with it, as one would get if you buy a new SRAM Eagle derailleur. I was told by the shop that since it's OEM on my bike, they also did not get one so they can't supply me with one. Does anyone know where I can buy one? I've asked around locally but have not found anyone with a spare they are willing to sell...and if I import one the shipping costs will actually be higher than the tool itself so I also don't want to go down that route...?

  24. Hello hubbers, My bike, Scott Genius 750 (2018), has the ability to switch between 27"+ and 29", and now I'm interested to do exactly that. The reason is mainly because my bike has quite a low BB, and I believe 29er will be able to just add a few needed centimeters. I just want to know if it's possible to trade my current 27"+ wheelsets for 29ers? I have the following: Rims: Syncros X-30s, 32 hole, 30mm Hubs: Front - Shimano HB-M6010-B CL, 15x110mm Rear - Shimano FH-M6010 CL, 12x148mm Tires: Maxxis Recon 2.8" I also have a Shimano CS-HG50-10 speed cassette, which I believe is not compatible with Sram XD hubs, but in the future I'd probably want to upgrade to Sram SX/NX and I don't know if XD hubs and Shimano cassetes are compatible for the time being? What can I expect to get for my wheelset aswell? Thanks in advance!
