    “Reduce to the max! I love simple technology with great function. Exactly that provides me the new XX group set. I got the XX the day before a world cup, and already raced it the next day. Shifting and braking wise I felt so confident from the first training lap on, that I wanted to race it!”

    My first ride with SRAM XX was a racing lap at the 24 Hours of the Old Pueblo near Tucson, AZ this past weekend.

    “2x10 allows me to race most of the time in the big Chainring (if using the 39er), the wide range of the cassette and the narrow chainline is realy a big bonus for CC-Racing. While Training i benefit out of the 36er Cassette and always have a gear left even when it comes to realy steep climbs (and believe me we have a lot of them in Switzerland)”

    “I have only been impressed with XX. For most of thet 2009 race season I was only using XX lockout and brakes (although I believe we were still using the old style rotors) and was blown away with the weight savings that only those 2 components provided.”

    “The first time I rode XX I was incredibly impressed with the ease and smoothness of the front shifting. I could shift smoothly under literally a maximum peadling load - something I've never been able to do with any group.”

    “I loved straight away how smooth and quick the shifting on XX was. You can change gear effortlessly, extremely quickly and so silently. I also loved from the start the shifters’ ergonomics.”

    “With the XX you can use way more of the big chainring, that's the main advantage.”

    “The shifting with the chainrings is much easier than before. Just push it and it will happen! And this with full Power and Speed.”

    “XX is user friendly for high performance. I can put more energy into pedaling because all the other functions like shifting, braking,and controlling the bike have been streamlined, making me more efficient.”

    “I went into my first ride on XX in south africa directly out of the stand and onto a world cup race course that I had been pre riding for the week prior with my bike built up with an eclectic mix of 2008 Sram family and other components. I had literally just come off a lap with my old build and was heading out a couple of hours later with the fresh XX group. The first impression was that the group was smooth and simple with incredibly responsive shifting in the front especially.”

    “I rode the XX my first time in march at the trainings camp in Tuscany. My first impressions was great. The biggest advantage for my was, that it's now possible to shift also under pressure in the front.”

    “My single favorite aspect of the XX group is the gear ratios. Its a bonus that the XX group is so light, but I would choose to ride it regardless of its weight because it performs so well.”

    I think the best part is always riding in the big ring, it really helps the motivation!

    My XX stuff has been treating me right and it's been big ring all the time.

    “Having a 2x10 gearing allows me to stay in the big ring more and reduces the amount of front shifting I have to do during a race. It is also good for the moral since it's always nice to have it in the big ring.”
