SRAM X7 2x10

I mentioned a few weeks back when SRAM launched its 2X10 site that we’d be seeing a few more 2X10 drivetrains. However I definitely didn’t expect it to be X7, and seeing it, I can’t believe how sweet a drivetrain it actually is. SRAM X7 features a 2X10 drivetrain, X-Glide front shifting, Exact Actuation, new PowerGlide cassette ratios, carbon cage rear derailleurs, new S1400 crank offering and Avid Elixir R brakes. SRAM 2X10 is becoming understood by riders of all levels and segments by delivering a full range of usable gears, less weight and faster and smoother shifting. We build on this with choice, and a strong materials mix aimed at mid-level XC to entry level downhillers and freeriders.
