SRAM’s AXS Wireless Drivetrain
Getting to the top of the mountain has never been easier, thanks to massive cassettes and tiny front chainrings that allow riders to quickly spin up steep terrain. Shimano’s 12-speed system offers a huge 51-tooth cog, and SRAM offers an even larger cassette featuring a 52-tooth cog. These wide-range drivetrains are a game-changer for anyone who has been out of the sport for a while or avid riders who just want an easier gear for crawling up the trails.
Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
