This GX derailleur not only answers the Eagle™ drivetrain's need for greater capacity, but it's also the next evolution of our proven, 1x-specific X-HORIZON™ design. The larger, 14-tooth X-SYNC™ lower pulley allows 10- to 50-tooth cassette, and also adds to Eagle's overall smooth-pedaling feel. Our new, Type-3 ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™ features a smoother torque curve for a quieter, more consistent operation and feel. CAGE LOCK™ has been moved back and out of the way, protecting it from trail debris. And a redesigned, robust mounting system further improves the Eagle™ derailleur's performance and overall durability.

Re-engineered mounting system and repositioned CAGE LOCK™ add robustness
Elevating the shift, expanding the capable, SRAM's X01 Eagle™ derailleur features an updated cage architecture, to provide better chain management than ever.
The X01 Eagle™ rear derailleur works with the new 10-52t cassettes and is backwards compatible to also work with 10-50t options. As part of the new Eagle™ Colorsystem, it comes in X01 Eagle™ master colorway to go perfectly with any color cassette and chain a rider wants.
Updated cage provides better chain retention and more precise shifts.
Comes in X01 Eagle™ master colorway as part of Eagle™ Colorsystem – to go with all cassette and chain color options - Black, Gold, Rainbow to HardChrome and all-new Copper.
Backwards compatible, works with 10-50t and new 10-52t cassettes.
SRAM's new 10-52t, XG-1295 cassette gives riders more than ever before, with an unprecedented 520-percent range. For a little extra to avoid the hike-a-bike, a little more in the “spin to win” game, the XG-1295 cassette also allows stronger riders to increase their chainring size if they want.
Provides a massive 520-percent gear range for brutal steeps and avoiding hike-a-bikes.
Stronger riders can increase chainring size for speed, without sacrificing climbing.
Avalable in Black, the Eagle™ Colorsystem lets the cassette and chain express the look of the bike.
The strongest system is a chain with no weak links. Eagle chain links have a smooth radius, with no sharp edges or chamfers, which yield a significant reduction in noise, friction and wear. This design also allows for a flatter plate, which means more consistent chain riveting and greater overall strength. And it’s also the biggest contributor to the ultra-smooth, precise, durable and quiet performance found in the 10-50 tooth cassette and X-SYNC 2 chainrings. Installation is made easy with a dedicated 12-speed Eagle quick link.
Upgrade your Eagle drivetrain to wireless shifting with this kit, which includes derailleur, shifter, battery and charger. AXS provides crisp, consistent shifting with one less cable, and adjusting cable tension becomes a thing of the past. The AXS shifter is fully programmable and easy to use, and the AXS smartphone app allows you to monitor and program the entire system.
