WHAT IS SRAM XPLR AXS?

SRAM is stepping further into the gravel game with their latest release, SRAM XPLR AXS, the multi-acronymic drivetrain is pronounced ‘Explore Access’. It joins SRAM’s latest wireless drivetrain family, AXS, with gravel specific 1×12 gearing. Availability will be limited across the entire line but expect to be able to track some down later this year.

A new 10-44 cassette is being added to the SRAM series to fill the void between the 10-50 Eagle cassette and the 10-36 12-speed cassette. The biggest news is RockShox’s Rudy Gravel Fork.

Our test bike will be arriving in a few days, we’ll have a review ready to go once we put in some miles on the gear.
