SRAM NX 1x GXP Crankset

Model: SRAM   |   Asin: B01H3X0YFC

Having everyone at the trailhead point and laugh at your outdated triple crankset is getting pretty old, but who's gonna spend all their rent money on a new one-by setup' Well, with SRAM's NX 1x GXP Crankset, you don't have to. It's a quarter of the price of the over-inflated carbon cranksets but offers way more than one-quarter of the performance. Its simple and solid 6000-series aluminum construction delivers crisp and reliable performance without burning a hole in your budget. The X-SYNC chainring is virtually identical to SRAM's high-end offerings, with CNC-machined teeth that alternate between narrow and wide to keep your chain turning over and stop it from flying off into the ether. One thing to note is that the NX 1x is compatible only with SRAM's GXP bottom brackets, so make sure that's what you're running before you decide to upgrade.

Features

  • Arm Material: 6000-series aluminum
  • Arm Length: 170 mm, 175 mm
  • Chainring Sizes: 32 t

SRAM NX Eagle Dub Groupset

Model: SRAM   |   Asin: B07HHD9SN7

When SRAM first released the Eagle 12-speed group, it took all the good things about 1x11 drivetrains and took it up a step. Improved chain retention, less maintenance, simpler shifting, and quieter operation all improved the ride experience but with the addition of the 12th cog, the gear range was brought to the level of a 2x setup without the troublesome mis-shifts of a front derailleur. NX Eagle is the newest expansion to the Eagle ecosystem and lowers the barrier to entry by having the lowest cost yet for an Eagle drivetrain. The NX Eagle DUB Groupset includes all the necessary components for a 1x12 upgrade, with the exception of a bottom bracket. This groupset includes the crankset, cassette, chain, rear derailleur, shifter, and b-gap adjustment tool. The crankset comes with a 32t, 6mm offset chainring for non-Boost bikes with QR or 12 x 142mm rear hub spacing. It uses SRAM's DUB spindle, which will work with any frame as long as you get the correct DUB bottom bracket (not included). The derailleur and shifter perform comparably to the top-tier Eagle groups, but there is a difference in weight and the materials comprising the shift levers. The cassette's range is 11-50t, so you still get the bailout gear that make's Eagle so pleasant, but with one less tooth on the small cog compared to the other Eagle cassettes. This allows the cassette to work with normal freehubs, no need for an XD driver.

Features

  • Rear Derailleur: NX Eagle 12-speed
  • Shifters: NX Eagle 12-speed
  • Crankset: NX Eagle DUB Direct Mount non-Boost
  • Teeth: 32t
  • Crank Arm Length: 170mm, 175mm

SRAM Red 1 Dub 12-Speed Aero Crankset

Model: SRAM   |   Asin: B07PB4HH4X

With SRAM's all-new Red eTap AXS group, it allowed the brand to completely reconfigure the components and cater the options to individually suit the rider's needs. Case in point: the Red 1 DUB 12-Speed Aero Crankset, ideal for the cyclist doing triathlons, time trials, or crits. Add the simplicity of a 1x system with aerodynamics and weight savings and you have a crankset that pairs quite well with this new 12-speed group.Naturally, the hollow arms are constructed of carbon providing strength, stiffness, and low weight. SRAM uses a proprietary layup that increases the thickness in critical areas while tapered, terraced, carbon architecture reduces weight elsewhere. Next up is the oversized aluminum DUB spindle, that first appeared on its mountain groups, now available for the first time on the road. This standard significantly adds durability to the bottom bracket bearings and broader frame compatibility without sacrificing stiffness.The 48 and 50t direct mount chainrings work well with the 10-tooth starting cog 12-speed X-range cassette. This allows for a wide gear range with close steps between the cogs. SRAM's patented X-SYNC wide/narrow-tooth chainring technology provides maximum chain retention especially now that the new Red AXS eTap rear derailleur sports an Orbit damper system. The tall, square teeth engage the chain earlier than traditionally shaped teeth and better manage the chain and its finish is laser etched for better durability.Lastly, the cranks are easily upgradeable to become a powermeter down the road with Red AXS upgrades from sister company Quarq and you can also swap to a 2x setup by installing the direct mount rings to the same crankarms.

  • Arm Material: Carbon
  • Arm Length: 165, 170, 172.5, 175mm
  • Chainring Sizes: 48, 50t

SRAM Red AXS Dub 12-Speed Power Meter Crankset

Model: SRAM   |   Asin: B07P6RP4SP

SRAM's Red AXS DUB 12-Speed Power Meter Crankset is the result of a systematic change to the company's flagship road group. Thanks to a revamp of its Red eTap line up, it allowed SRAM to completely redesign the crank and among other things, fundamentally change the concept of gearing. We'll be the first to admit that SRAM's front shifting was, ahem, lagging compared to its competitors and with this new crankset, those days are over. SRAM also wants to bring the ability to quantify wattage to the masses and that is exactly what you get here.Naturally, the hollow arms are constructed of carbon providing strength, stiffness, and low weight. SRAM uses a proprietary layup that increases the thickness in critical areas while tapered, terraced, carbon architecture reduces weight elsewhere. Next up is the oversized aluminum DUB spindle, that first appeared on its mountain groups, now available for the first time on the road. This standard significantly adds durability to the bottom bracket bearings and broader frame compatibility without sacrificing stiffness.But perhaps the most significant change with this crank comes from the new chainrings. These all-new, direct mount rings are machined from a single block of lightweight aluminum making them as stiff as possible for faster, crisper, and more consistent shifting. The rings are available in 46/33t, 48/35t, and 50/37t options where you will notice two things: consistent 13-tooth jumps between the small and big rings and smaller overall tooth options.As opposed to the 16-tooth jumps of compact (50/34t) and mid-compact (52/36t), or even the 14-tooth jump with the stalwart standard (53/39t), a 13-tooth jump offers smoother and quicker front shifting with fewer compensating shifts needed in the rear after making the shift. This all happens thanks to the wider cassette range offered by the new 12-speed cassette and its 10-tooth starting cog. SRAM calls it X-Range gearing technology, we call it amazing. It not only allows ...
