SRAM introduces 7-speed XO1 downhill group

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

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.
