Start with one! It's how you start that matters. Whether you're discovering the mountain for the first time or you're an MTB lifer searching for a no-nonsense, no-worries 1x drivetrain, SRAM NX is ready for action and ready to take you there. NX brings you a wide range of gear choices engineered for simplicity and durability, so you can focus on what matters most - the ride ahead. German engineered and proudly bearing the SRAM 1x™ stamp of approval, NX is ready to let the world know what real riding feels like. Start new. Start right. Start with SRAM NX.
The SRAM NX X-Horizon™ rear derailleur provides the same smooth, reliable shifting action as XX1-from the larger upper pulley offset to the 12-tooth X-Sync™ pulley wheels. By eliminating unwanted chain movement, X-Horizon™ shifts faster, puts an end to ghost shifting and reduces shift force and chain slap. And with Cage Lock™ technology, wheel removal and installation are easier than ever.

Roller Bearing Clutch™
Roller Bearing Clutch™ rear derailleurs deliver maximum drivetrain stability-even through the most punishing terrain. With Roller Bearing Clutch™ technology, derailleur bounce and chain slap are eliminated without sacrificing precision.
With Cage Lock™ technology in the rear derailleur, wheel removal and installation-as well as chain installation-becomes faster and simpler. Just push the cage forward to create slack and lock it into place.
The X-Horizon™ rear derailleur's 'straight parallelogram' design limits all movement to the horizontal axis, which makes ghost shifting impossible while also reducing shift force. For quicker, more exact shifting, the large upper pulley offset design maintains a constant chain gap across all gears.
SRAM X-Sync™ 1x chain rings provide the highest level of performance and durability. The SRAM X-Sync™ tall square teeth edges engage the chain earlier than traditional triangle shaped teeth. The sharp and narrow tooth profile, as well as rounded chamfer edges, help manage a deflected chain. To provide the best possible performance in muddy conditions, the X-Sxnc™ chain rings have been designed with mud-clearing recesses for the inner chain links and rollers. Engineered in Germany, X-Sync™ rings are an integral part of the SRAM 1x™ drivetrain.
