SRAM Launches Updated Gravity Groupsets
With all the hype around 12 speed groupsets, it's easy to forget that SRAM makes a dedicated lineup for the DH crowd. Today, they announce some fresh updates to the X01 and GX DH groupsets. Catch all the details after the break.
There’s good, better and best. And best makes all the difference. X01 DH delivers quicker shifting, smarter gear steps and more precise chain management. It’s purpose-built for gravity athletes, from World Champions to the local pro. It’s hard working and well rounded. Lightweight and durable. This is the absolute top of the field — for those that know the difference.
X01 DH CRANKSET
Engineered for the most ultimate, most aggressive downhill rides. Our X01 DH crankset, now with DUB technology, has proven itself in World Cup and World Championship racing, and it’s ready for your most relentless, steep and slightly scary lines.
XG-795 MINI BLOCK CASSETTE
Get to the gear you need, as fast as mechanically possible. We optimized gear steps specifically for downhill riding by making the MINI BLOCK 7-speed cassette with 10–24 gearing with two-tooth steps. This setup eliminates the need for double and triple shifts. And, due to its compact design, it’s also ultralight.
X01 DH X-HORIZON REAR DERAILLEUR
Engineered to maintain consistent chain gap across all seven gears, X-HORIZON delivers faster shifting and reduced shift force while eliminating vertical movement and ghost shifting. And with the Type-3 ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH, you get the very best in chain management. It’s quiet, consistent and long-lasting — a purpose-built workhorse for the parks and tracks.
Short or medium cage length fits your chainstay. Built high and tight to steer clear of the trail. CAGE LOCK makes wheel changes simple and quick. Pair with X01 DH 7-speed shifter for full X-ACTUATION technology.
X01 DH X-ACTUATION TRIGGER SHIFTER
The X01 DH trigger shifter is built for two things: precision and dependability. ZERO LOSS engages the cables instantly, for nanosecond shifts. An adjustable thumb paddle allows for personalization, so you can dial your trigger positioning. And the aluminum cover and forged aluminum pull lever create the strength and durability to conquer the toughest terrain.
Thumb paddle is adjustable up to 30 degrees +/-. MatchMaker X compatible for a tidy cockpit. Discrete clamp included to optimize setup.
DESCENDANT DH CRANKSET
The best thing about aluminum? You can beat it up, but never break it down. The DESCENDANT DH with an aluminum crank is robust, dependable and rock solid. It pairs strategic weight savings with reliability burliness. And it saves you money both upfront and in the long-term. This crank can take a licking and it keeps kicking. Just like you.
The GX DH™ cassette was built with one purpose — quality of gravity riding. It’s a downhill-optimized 7-speed cassette, with gear steps that give you more purpose on each shift. A compact design allows more spoke clearance and saves grams. Dedicated to gravity, this SRAM 1x™ cassette is focused, value priced and performance-driven. A perfect hire.
GX DH 1X X-HORIZON™ REAR DERAILLEUR
In the gravity world, focus is paramount. So when our engineers designed the GX DH 1x X-HORIZON, they ensured that your attention can stay on the singletrack. Reliable, precise and incredibly easy to shift, this DH derailleur takes a championship pedigree and brings it to every rider.
GX DH X-ACTUATION™ TRIGGER SHIFTER
Designed and engineered by SRAM in Germany, the GX DH™ Trigger Shifter is the epitome of accuracy. Each click signals a precise shift — to sprint out of the corner, approach the next table or power to the finish line. Make the shift to building confidence.
