SRAM Eagle: how the revolutionary groupset has evolved in six years

From the distinctly affordable to World Cup ready performance, Eagle has it all

How Eagle has evolved since it was first introduced six years ago

This is a sponsored article, brought to you in association with SRAM.

SRAM’s revolutionary 1x-specific Eagle groupset has grown to encompass everything from the distinctly affordable NX Eagle to the top-tier XX1 since it first debuted six years ago.

Critically, this shared technology means that every component from each groupset is compatible with each other. This makes sourcing replacement parts or gradually upgrading a much more simple proposition.

Watch as Chris from SRAM talks us through the Eagle ecosystem, hints towards something that we’re all expecting to see soon and explains what makes Eagle unique in an increasingly crowded marketplace for 1x drivetrains.
