, OneUp X-Cog 44T for XX1/X01 and Sram Direct Mount Narrow Wide rings

OneUp sent over some details on two new prodcuts they’ve developed. The first item is desigend to extend the life of your 10-42t cassette by replacing your worn aluminum 42t with an X-Cog 44T sprocket. The second item is the Direct Mount chain rings that bolt up to SRAM’s cranksets. Details inside.

X-Cog 44T Sprocket for XX1/X01

OneUp your XX1/X01 cassette with the X-Cog 44T expander sprocket. Extend the life and range of your 10-42T cassette by replacing your worn aluminum 42T with the X-Cog 44T sprocket.

XX1/X01 cassettes have steel sprockets from 10-36T (X-dome). It’s never recommended to use aluminum for cassette sprockets 36T or smaller as they will wear out very quickly due to the higher tooth loading.

Riders who spend a lot of time in the 42T can wear out the Aluminum sprocket faster than the rest of their steel cassette. Instead of throwing away a $400 USD cassette that’s still 90% good, the X-Cog gets you rolling again for $90.

The X-Cog provides more range, not just an easier granny gear. The increased range is a must for racers looking to maximize their chainring size for timed downhill sections, while still being able to conserve energy on transition stage climbs.

If you’re spending the majority of your climbing time in the 42T, you should look at reducing the front chainring size so that you can spend more time in the more durable steel sprockets of your cassette.  If you have a SRAM crankset with a removable spider then switching to a new OneUp direct mount ring lets you drop to a 28T chainring.

For XX1/X01 riders running cranks that don’t have removable spiders, running a chainring smaller than 30T is not an option.  The X-cog is the ideal solution to get a more usable granny gear.
