SRAM XX 10 Speed Carbon Alloy Chainset
SRAM XX 10sp Chainset
XX was a global effort. Working across ten locations in six countries with an amazing team of engineers and designers, we collaborated to build the new standard of lightweight MTB performance. Driven and tested by our global teams of athletes, XX became a reality. XX was an idea whose time was right: our first MTB group. We didn t just want to be better we wanted to be beyond comparison. Revolutionary front shifting, unmatched ergonomics, and unequalled hydraulic remote suspension lock-out, all in the first-ever 2x10 MTB package. But don t take our word for it. Hear what our elite test athletes and tech support has to say. Coming in at 694 grams (BB30), the XX Crank delivers amazing performance and durability with no penalties in weight. The first MTB crank specifically designed for 2x10 uses some of the world s most advanced material science. The oversized chainrings are CNC machined 7075 Aluminium blanks 2mm thicker than the competition. Unparalleled stiffness is delivered by an increased Bolt Circle Diameter (BCD) and a two-piece insert-moulded carbon composite construction. The XX Crank geometry provides a narrow 156mm Q factor, efficient chainline, and beveled crank arms to maximize clearance. It s pure science in action. Our way of thinking. The concept was simple: create a geometry that allows each chainring to be divided into equal segments, much like a pie. Then, perfect the up-and downshift timing for one segment, and repeat that for each of them. However, making this idea an engineering reality was quite another thing. Prototype after prototype was built, ridden, and analyzed until we got it right. The outcome is lightning-fast and accurate front shifting, through an all-new, patented, mind-blowing performance technology: X-Glide. X-Glide is the common denominator that gives XX its unmatched shifting performance. With X-Glide, all four upshift locations are identical and can be picked up by any outer link. The result? Up and down shift locations have perfect timing, for an almost instant shift even under load! Features: Weight: 694g (BB30), 754g (GXP w/ BB) Chainline: 49.5 Chainring Material: AL-7075-T651 Chainring Bolts: AL-7075-T6 Crank-Arm Materials: Integrated carbon composite/aluminium spider construction Compatibility Chain: Optimized for SRAM PC 1090 or PC 1090R Chainring Options: 26-39 (120/80 BCD), 28-42 (120/80 BCD), 30-45 (120/80 BCD)

About SRAM Bike Components
SRAM began life in Chicago in 1987, named after it's founders Scott, Ray And Sam, and is known primarily as a manufacturer of drivetrain and braking components. It's first revolutionary product was the twist action GripShift, which became available in 1988, with the MTB version released in 1991. In 1995, they launched their first ESP rear derailleur, which featured a 1 to 1 cable actuation ratio. The X.O drivetrain products were released in 2001, marking the introduction of the trigger shifter, and a year later, MTB Suspension pioneers RockShox was acquired. A year later Avid - a MTB Disc Brake company - was also acquired, giving SRAM more market share of the MTB industry. By 2006, a focus was shifted to producing road components in addition to their MTB stable, with the launch of Force and Rival groupsets. The following year, Doubletap was introduced, enabling users to switch gear in either direct using a single shifter. This steady growth was sustained, and over the years SRAM acquired several more cycling household brands, such as Truvativ (Chainsets and components), Quarq (power meters), Sachs (drivetrain components) and Zipp (carbon fibre goodies!).
About Chain Reaction Cycles
This product is for sale at Chain Reaction Cycles, one of the largest online cycle shops in the world. Opening in 1985, and starting off as a small independent bike shop in Ballynure, it moved to Ballyclare in 1989 and is now based in Doagh (all in Northern Ireland). In addition to regular local service, Chain Reaction Cycles (or CRC as it is often abbreviated to) established itself as a mail order business via advertisements in bicycle magazines; this continued until 1999 where it launched it's now famous website at ChainReactionCycles.com. Their blue themed website stocks around 90,000 products ranging from MTB & Road cycling equipment, to triathlon, BMX and running kit. As per several other leading bike shops, Chain Reaction produce their own product ranges, under brands such as Brand X. To this day CRC sponsor many cycling events, and due to the company's size and efficiency are able to offer very competitive pricing on cycle equipment. In 2016 Wiggle acquired Chain Reaction Cycles, although the two websites continue to operate independently of each other, both with their own distinctive branding and product ranges.
