Truvativ Descendant: A new line of Enduro/Gravity components

[ad3]Among the many innovations which SRAM showed off in Massa Marittima, the first revealed is the new line of Truvativ Descendant products .

With the Descendant brand, Truvativ presents a series of new components dedicated to enduro and gravity disciplines.


The philosophy behind the Descendant line is simple: to provide a product at good value for the price, without having to sacrifice anything. Safety comes first, so the components are designed to be first of all safe and reliable, rather than light.


Most interesting are the new cranks.  Descendant cranks are now offered in both carbon fiber and aluminum construction as well as with a built in spider vs a direct mount X-Sync chainring option.

With the same chainring as XX1 and X01, the alloy Descendant saves weight thanks to the direct mount style ring. Designed for all-purpose riding, they are robust and resistant to abuse.

Price: 175-205 €
