Regardless of whether it's downhill descents or steepest ramps, the XG-1275 cassette with 10-52 or 10-50 teeth provides you with the right gears in every terrain. The punched steel sprocket and a 52 (50) tooth sprocket made of aluminum ensure a high durability of the cassette. The sprockets are not connected via a spider, but are riveted with stainless steel pins. This not only makes the fullpin cassette lighter than conventional cassettes, the open design also offers excellent self-cleaning in muddy conditions. The teeth optimized with SRAM's X-Glide 2 technology ensure optimal shifting performance when shifting up and down. A wider bandwidth compared to the Eagle cassettes with 10-50 teeth not only offers more reserves for extremely steep climbs. With the bandwidth increased to 520% (500%), high-performance riders can ride a larger chainring without impairing the climbing abilities of the bike. As a result, the drive enables a higher top speed and the driver also uses the larger sprockets of the cassette, which are more efficient.
The GX Eagle chain was specially developed for the requirements of the 12-speed drive. Thanks to its unique design, the chain is extremely wear-resistant. A nickel coating offers a high level of corrosion protection and reduces the friction of the chain. The revised PowerLock chain lock has a longer shelf life and is even easier to use.
