SRAM Expands Eagle Drivetrain Range
CHICAGO, USA – SRAM is expanding its Eagle Drivetrain series with Eagle GX components which are 100-percent compatible with all levels of SRAM Eagle systems. Eagle is the only 1x drivetrain that provides an expanded, optimum, gear range.
GX Eagle cranksets with forged aluminium crank arms offers new X-SYNC 2 direct mount chainring as well as numerous Eagle ring size options. The GX Eagle™ crankset is designed around not only SRAM bottom brackets, but Eagle™ technology as a whole.
New GX Eagle rear derailleur
The new GX Eagle derailleur is able to handle the 10-50t Eagle cassette and includes the Type-3 Roller Bearing Clutch so that chain management feels the same on every cassette cog, small or large. A new Eagle pulley design, combined with the SRAM Eagle chain, helps to make this drivetrain super quiet and incredibly efficient.
GX Eagle Trigger Shifter
GX Eagle comes with a trigger shifter which is the control centre of the new Eagle drivetrain. It allows for quick shifting as well as comfort and intuition. The GX Eagle™ shifter carries with it all of the enhancements and improvements that the XX1 and X01 Eagle trigger shifters received, improving trigger feel, precision and durability for every rider on any terrain. Next to trigger shifters GX Eagle offers also the possibility of grip shifting. Three decades ago, SRAM was founded on a product called Grip Shift, and an idea that shifting a bike should be easier, better and more intuitive. The new Eagle Grip Shift includes new, robust internals that make it even more durable and its shifting performance more precise.
GX Eagle includes also the XG-1275 Eagle 10- to 50-tooth Cassette with ‘Full Pin’ technology. There’s also a special GX Eagle Chain and XD Driver body.
