Advanced ideas require precise execution. XX™ demands precise frame fit specifications that are unique to XX. These specifications are the result of the innovative and revolutionary technology that makes XX shifting the lightest, fastest, and most precise in the mountain bike market today. Please take the time to carefully review the frame fit specifications to ensure you have the information you need to build the perfect XX equipped mountain bike. We didn't compromisewhen developing the XX group; we know you won't either.
XThe low-profile XX Front Derailleur was designed from scratch specifically for 2x10. It’s a critical part of the XX shifting experience: the fastest front shift ever. Offered in a wide variety of clamp-mount and direct-mount options.
Direct Mount FD’s give frame designers freedom and flexibility. Based on specific manufacturer’s frame designs, we are offering multiple XX Direct Mount types: S1, S2 and S3. Since Direct Mount FD’s are chainring specific, each type is available in the following options: 26-39, 28-42, (For example, 28-42 rings require a 28-42 Direct Mount FD.) There are a number of manufacturers now using the Direct Mount system for their front mechs that screw directly onto specific mounts on the frame as opposed to regular band-on mechs, but there are a number of different standards for the mounts being used, hence why SRAM make S1, S2 and S3 options. Direct Mount is not a SRAM specific standard, but they are now making front mechs to accommodate these new standards.
Final Note: Your frame must be designed for a Direct Mount FD in order to use one.
