The future has landed, taking on the form of 1x 11 gearing, SRAM are ahead of the game. With the SRAM XX1 cassette being the first of its kind, 11 speed is now a reality. Ranging from 10- to 42-teeth, the 11-speed X-Dome delivers an incredibly wide gear range while maintaining even, optimised steps. The single-unit cassette combines with the XD driver body for a superior connection to the wheel.
SRAM XX1 XG1199 11 Speed MTB Cassette Features:
X-Dome - X-Dome technology creates an incredibly lightweight, precise and strong cassette. The open design aids in mud clearance, giving you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life.
XD Driver body - XD is a new cassette driver body design that allows the use of a 10 tooth small cog and provides and improved interface with the cassette. Wheels equipped for the XD Driver boy are available from SRAM and DT Swiss.
Rated 4 out of 5 by CarlC Great product, but 42 tooth alu cog is weak
1x11 rocks. it is great to ride with, and I love the quietness of my bike on descents. It's simplicity and reliable function is also a big advantage when racing. However, the 42 tooth alu cog is a weak point in the product. It wears out much faster than the rest of the steel cassette - which really shouldn't be a big surprise. Unfortunately, SRAM does not offer a replacement cog :-(
What happens is that the chain gets worn on the soft 42 tooth cog and then, in turn, the worn chain starts wearing out the rest of the cassette. I think the cassette could last much longer if I could install a new chain + 42-tooth cog once in a while.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JanB Room for improvement
I love the idea of SRAMs 11 speed 10-42 and have now been using it since last summer (9 months). It shifts fairly good but you can get some chrunchyness going to the 42 cog under power. I'm also concerned about the longevity of the 42t alu cog. My chain is only at .5% and it's starting to show wear. Tried a new chain yesterday and it was skipping.
I would like to see a steel or titanium 42 cog in the future. If Shimano can do it so can SRAM.

Первый раз вживую увидел эту кассету на велосипеде Scott Scale 900 и подумал: "Мир не стоит на месте!".
P.S. Надеюсь, в будущем нас не перестанут удивлять проиводители велосипедных компонентов.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous The Future... Now!!!
Despite this cassette costing more than the rest of my bike put together I still think it is the best invention in MTB since the nobbly tyre!.
Roadies have 11 speed now, so why not MTB?? 1 x 11 gearing makes a lot of sense.
When will we see 1 x 12???

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Sicuramente sarebbe utilissimo avere un alleato, cosi in salita ma nonostante il bisogno, vedo con molto rancore il prezzo che mi sembra molto alto per il prodotto .

The XX1 cassette runs the new SRAM XD freehub interface, so only wheels equipped with a XD Freehub will accept this. We have the Pro 2 EVO with XD available (link below); you could match this up with a rim of your choice and the DT Swiss spokes to create a custom wheel for your needs.
