Cycling Plus - - GEAR GUIDE -

SRAM pi­o­neered full sin­gle chain­ring trans­mis­sions off-road and is push­ing them hard with three dif­fer­ent 1x11 groupsets - Force 1, Ri­val 1 and Apex 1. With 12-speed Ea­gle well es­tab­lished off-road now, and teasers from nu­mer­ous in­dus­try in­sid­ers, it can’t be long be­fore we see SRAM de­but a 1x12 road setup.

Shi­mano doesn’t of­fi­cially make a sin­gle-ring road trans­mis­sion. Com­bin­ing an Ul­te­gra Di2 shifter setup with an XTR or XT Di2 moun­tain bike rear mech cre­ates a swift chang­ing and ac­cu­rate gearset.
