Elevating the shift, expanding the capable, the X01 Eagle derailleur features an updated cage architecture, to provide better chain management than ever. The X01 Eagle rear derailleur works with the new 10-52t cassettes and is backwards compatible to also work with 10-50t options. As part of the new Eagle Colorsystem, it comes in X01 Eagle master colorway to go perfectly with any color cassette and chain a rider wants.
With Cage Lock technology in the rear derailleur, wheel removal and installation—as well as chain installation—becomes faster and simpler. Just pushing the cage forward to create slack and lock it into place.
Roller Bearing Clutch
Roller Bearing Clutch rear derailleurs deliver maximum drivetrain stability—even through the most punishing terrain. With Roller Bearing Clutch technology, derailleur bounce and chain slap are eliminated without sacrificing precision.
The X-HORIZON rear derailleur’s ‘straight parallelogram’ design limits all movement to the horizontal axis, which makes ghost shifting impossible while also reducing shift force. For quicker, more exact shifting, the large upper pulley offset design maintains a constant chain gap across all gears.
SRAM X-SYNC 1x chain rings provide the highest level of performance and durability. The SRAM X-SYNC tall square teeth edges engage the chain earlier than traditional triangle shaped teeth. The sharp and narrow tooth profile, as well as rounded chamfer edges, help manage a deflected chain. To provide the best possible performance in muddy conditions, the X-SYNC chain rings have been designed with mud-clearing recesses for the inner chain links and rollers. Engineered in Germany, X-SYNC rings are an integral part of the SRAM 1x drivetrain.
