It’s not like we haven’t ridden SRAM’s 2×10 yet, but as of Friday we have formalised the relationship. Ignoring that fact that we tested XX a while back on a lightweight race bike, the only times we’ve had on X7/X9 and X0 versions have either been on pre-production samples or for very brief one-off rides. But we now have ourselves a complete bike built up with all X0 bits and pieces for review in our December issue. We even snuck on a new Revelation RLTTi (20mm Maxle) fork which we will also be reviewing in December. Anyway here’s what it all looked like new. Hopefully it looks like this after we’ve finished with it!
Sram/RockShox – May 27th, 2022
Our new suspension started from a blank sheet of paper. We set everything aside and started with one question: how can we continue to elevate every ride? The result is a revolutionary system designed
to deliver unprecedented control, muscle, and performance. New chassis designed with industry-first damper technology, reinvented air springs, a host of new technologies to mute trail chatter and win the fight against friction. Suspension that has the confidence to meet the demands of riders today and empower them to take the sport somewhere new tomorrow.
