News: SRAM X01 Drivetrain Announced

When SRAM released its unique XX1 drivetrain last year, we all knew this day was coming: the new 1×11 drivetrain technology is trickling down to more affordable component groups. (For more information on XX1, check out Jeff’s short review.) While X0-level tech still isn’t affordable by some people’s standards, compared to the premium cost of the XX1 drivetrain, it’s a definite improvement! Also, if the past is any indication, watch for 1×11 technology to continue to trickle down to X9-level groups and below.
