NEW X01 7-Speed Trigger Shifter
Harnessing SRAM’s 1X™ X-ACTUATION™ technology, the X01 DH trigger shifter delivers precise and dependable 7-speed performance. With ZERO LOSS™, the cable engages instantly so you shift faster. And with multi-adjustable triggers, you shift from whatever position fits perfectly with the way your ride. The shifter’s aluminum cover and adjustable forged aluminum pull lever bring the strength and durability you need to conquer the toughest terrain.

NEW X01 DH X-HORIZON™ Rear Derailleur
The 7-speed X-HORIZON™ rear derailleur makes shifting smooth and reliable no matter where you ride. Engineered to maintain consistent chain gap across all seven gears, X-HORIZON™ eliminates vertical movement for faster shifting, reduced shift force and an end to ghost shifting. ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™ technology and the 12-tooth X-SYNC™ pulley wheels hold the chain in place, reducing bounce and chain slap. And CAGE LOCK™ technology makes wheel removal and installation easier than ever. Paired with the X01 DH 7-speed shifter, X-HORIZON™ forms the backbone of X-ACTUATION™ technology—and that means completely smooth shifting action.

NEW XG-795 X01 DH MINI BLOCK™ 7-speed Cassette
The MINI BLOCK™ X-DOME™ 7-speed cassette is engineered for the optimized gear steps that downhill riders want. Featuring 10–24 gearing with two-tooth steps, this technology eliminates the need for double/triple shifts to get in the gear you want. And because it’s so compact, it’s also light—the lightest cassette in existence. Compatible with any XD wheel, MINI BLOCK™ X-DOME™ technology integrates flawlessly with your SRAM 1X™ drivetrain. With durable JET™ black finish, the cassette looks as tough as it performs—ride after ride.

The cassette uses the XD driver body as seen on the other X01/XX1 components.
