However, next to celebrations it also about business at SRAM Eurobike booth where of course also new components will be highlighted. Like XX SRAM’s all new and super high-end MTB groupset. It’s a 2 x 10 speed platform for MTBs that inherits lots of design features from the Red groupset. Weight is the main feature of XX, with the dimensions of most parts being reduced.

Next to that with XX SRAM is bringing together its four components brands in order, as the Chicago based manufacturer says: “To craft the most advanced cross country group ever.” This means that next to the 2×10 speed drive train and all the SRAM components that go with that like shifters, derailleurs, chains and so on, also RockShox suspension, Avid brakes, and Truvativ parts come together in this new top-of-the-bill groupset that celebrates its official launch at Eurobike.
