En helt ny gruppe fra SRAM. Spesielt fokusert på Cyclocross. NB! denne gruppen kan velges med enten hydrauliske bremser eller contilevler.
Les hva Bikeradar hadde å si om gruppen eller se videotest under fra Performace Bicycle:
For a few cyclocross testers who thought themselves “two-ring guys” — any benefits of a single ring in the past was always lost in the lack of gear options and added bits and pieces to help keep the chain on — the CX1 one-by cyclocross group has proven to be a bit of a gamechanger.
SRAM’s Force CX1 group uses technologies pioneered in the XX1 mountain bike group and have been cleverly adapted to suit the needs of ’cross. There are a number of different gear combinations available that come close to spanning the gears available a double-ring setup, but not quite.
For mountain bikers who have ridden with a clutch derailleur, the CX1 rear will feel reassuringly firm. For roadies and ’crossers who have not, the one-ring system with its taut chainline is a small revelation. When the bike is bouncing up and down over rough terrain — or when you drop it harshly before a remount — the chain is eerily silent, reminiscent of a belt drive instead of a metal chain. But the metal chain — either a 10- or an 11-speed — is most certainly there, it’s just held tight by the brawny CX1 rear derailleur, which is basically a SRAM Type 2 mountain bike derailleur modified for ’cross.
SRAM’s new Force CX1 cyclocross drivetrain can be purchased in pieces, with only the rear derailleur and the X-Sync chainring necessary for a conversion to a 1x group that works with either 10- or 11-speed SRAM systems. (Read our experiences with a minimal CX1 conversion with SRAM Force 10-speed shifters here.)
After a few weeks of earnest testing on the cyclocross course, here is how we found each part of the CX1 group to perform.
