Design based around XX1 and X01 11-speed, just narrowed down for DH

SRAM introduces 7-speed XO1 downhill group

Due in stock with Fisher Outdoors from April, SRAM has today released the details of its 7-speed XO1 downhill components.

Borrowing technology from XX1 and the 11-speed version of X01, the downhill group is made up of a seven-speed cassette, mounting to the XD Driver Body freehub, and seven-speed rear derailleur and shifter. SRAM’s unchanged XX1 chain is recommended.

The cassette includes a chain barrier on the back cog to stop it dropping into the spokes. The sprocket sizes are 10-12-14-16-18-21-24 and the cassette is said to be the lightest available. What’s more, the system will be compatible with any wheels that can fit the XD driver body.

SRAM X01 DH 7-Speed Overview

  • High performance shifting engineered for DH bikes
  • Optimized gearing for DH
  • Lightest crank, lightest cassette, lightest shifter, lightest group
  • Better overall system durability
  • All X0 DH cranks get upgraded to X01 DH cranks with X-SYNC™ rings
  • Based on our SRAM 1X™ philosophy of a dedicated system, X-SYNC™, X-HORIZON™, X-ACTUATION™
  • 10-tooth cog allows smaller chain rings for more ground clearance
