There’s an element of the unknown when it comes to running new trail and racing blind. Enduro spec follows suit. X01 Eagle AXS™ utilizes the proven backbone of SRAM 1x™. 500-percent gear range. More secure and longer wearing X-SYNC™2 chainring. The resilience of an aluminum cage, paired with the connected components of Eagle AXS™. Ready for the new gen of super bikes.
More than a mechanical derailleur with a battery and a motor bolted on, the Eagle AXS™ derailleur is the brain of the whole AXS™ system. Trim it at set-up for zero rub, making the near-silent operation of Eagle™ even more stealth—all while improving drivetrain longevity.
It features a shorter cage for 10mm more ground clearance, with more chain wrap on the cassette to sit slightly further forward, and further inboard from mechanical Eagle™. Instantaneous shifts from a single touch even while under World Cup-winning chain loads recorded in the heat of racing and affirmed in the test lab.
No cable, housing or wires to manage opened up design and engineering possibilities with the Eagle AXS™ controller. Helping us pioneer a completely new shifting experience with new ergonomic touchpoints that take just enough effort to press.
Touchpoints that are totally customizable to your preferences, allowing you to choose which button does what through the AXS™ app. Choose from three functions: Inboard shift. Outboard shift. Dropper. Use one of the touchpoints to control your electronic Reverb AXS™ dropper seatpost. And the power save mode in the controller wakes up after a single touch to save battery when not in use.
Beyond the controller’s standard paddle, an included “Secret Sprint” paddle oriented on the front-side of the controller near your index knuckle allows for quick shifts with virtually no change to your grip on the handlebar.
Bolt it on. Set three limit screws. Press the pairing buttons. And go. Eagle AXS™ is trimmed and adjusted electronically for a perfect chainline. There is no additional effort to shift or idiosyncrasies to learn. And AXS™ unlocks an entirely new way to personalize the key interface with your bike—all controlled from your phone via a simple AXS™ app. Unless you’re looking to set it and forget it. Because you can do that too.
Yes, Eagle AXS™ uses a battery. One that is removable for easy recharging after 20 hours of ride time. One that only weighs 25g and is detachable with a single clip. One that is “hot swappable” if needed—from derailleur to your Reverb AXS™ seatpost or even your SRAM RED or Force eTap AXS™ road group. And it only takes an hour to charge.
Checking battery life is easy: Press the button on the derailleur. Green light means it’s at or close to full charge. Red light means it’s at or close to half charge. And flashing red means charge it up. Or throw on another, because keeping an extra is easy and realistic. To prolong battery life, the system goes to power save mode when the bike is stationery.
The Eagle AXS™ system is completely water and dust proof to the IP69K international standard. Initially developed for construction vehicles and food sanitization, the IP69K standard validates systems that require regular pressurized cleaning. For a mountain biker, it means no hesitation to head out when the weather looks less than ideal.
The Eagle AXS™ derailleur is smart enough to protect itself. The built-in Overload Clutch was designed to disengage on impact, return to position and shift back into gear.
The primary purpose of the Overload Clutch is to protect the derailleur’s shift motor, but it serves to protect your derailleur and derailleur hanger from damage as a by-product. A very helpful by-product.
The AXS™ app is the built-in componentry software that makes it possible to both program and personalize Eagle AXS™ to your specifications. Letting you adjust and personalize controller assignments for shift commands and your electronically activated Reverb™ dropper post right from your mobile—to make it exactly how you want it. Have your left controller do upshifts or downshifts.
Assign a paddle to your AXS™ enabled Reverb™ that feels most intuitive to you. For the first time, AXS™ introduces digital possibilities for riders to customize, personalize, control, and improve the ride. Even when off the bike. Effectively allowing you to create your very own Eagle AXS™ “fingerprint.”
All that’s needed to get riding is to mount the Eagle AXS™ drivetrain, pair it and get out there. The AXS™ app is only needed for further personalization or to gain access to the data the system has accumulated. Whenever you choose.
Far beyond rider personalization, the seamless integration between AXS™ hardware and software communicates with your SRAMid. Like sending service reminders when it’s time to check your wear components. And so much more. Allowing you to improve your bike when you’re not even touching it.
Riders haven’t asked for this product, because it was never possible before. We didn’t employ the magic of wireless electronics for effect either. We engineered hardware with a new ergonomic experience based on touching a button rather than pushing a lever. Giving you faster, more consistent shifts. Letting you shift when you want, under load, without ever having to plan around terrain.
