SRAM has licenced its X-Sync chainring technology out for industry brands to take advantage of - with the Accell Group and Chromag early adopters.
On the market for the past two years, the single ring 1X drivetrains with X-Sync chainrings are fast-becoming a popular choice. Accell and Chromag are set to manufacture their own X-Sync rings for distribution through their own networks. Both suppliers will continue to use and support all SRAM 1X™ Drivetrain components in addition to this license.
Since Sram's German engineering team created the technology, the label has filed numerous patent applications on narrow-wide/thick-thin tooth geometry.
SRAM reserves the right to enforce its intellectual property in all matters relating to X-SYNC.
