Today SRAM announced the details of their new GX drivetrain. GX is aiming to fill in their mid priced X7/X9 line in terms of price point. The group is meant to suit a wide range of cyclists from XC to Trail to Enduro riders.

The biggest news about the group perhaps is that it will be utilizing the 10-42 tooth range that has made XX1, X01, and X1 so popular, but it will offer 1X and 2X versions of the crankset and rear derailleur to mate up to their new GX 10-42T cassette. That boils down to two things -an affordable dedicated 1X system and a 2X system with the most range on the market by quite a long shot.

Cranksets:

There are two models available, the GX 1400, made ​​with Open Core Technology (OCT), which is hollow inside, and the GX 1000, made from 6000 series aluminum alloy. Both models are available in 175mm or 170mm lengths. For the bottom bracket you can choose between PressFit 30, BB30, GXP and GXP PressFit. The new cranks allow the use of a bashguard. Both models are compatible with the new Boost system.

The 1 × 11 chainrings are available with X-Sync in 30-32-34-36- and 38 tooth.
