SRAM's GX Eagle 12-speed group offers the same wide range of gears as the pricer X01 and XX1 groups providing plenty of ratios for climbing and descending. Brakes also come from SRAM and are Code R's bringing the big bike down from speed with plenty of power, modulation, and confidence thanks to its 4-pistons and 200mm front rotor.
