Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm a huge fan of 1x systems, and the XX1 RD has been flawless in my experience. I've logged (literally) thousands of miles, and have barely had to touch any that I've owned. The shifting is crisp and easy, especially if you simply take the time to rinse the dirt/dust from your bike from time to time. This is a staple on every MTB I own, though I'm pretty curious about Eagle ....

1x Rules - I'll get that out of the way early. You have damn near the range of a 2 or 3x setup, without the complexity and annoyance of a front derailleur. With the XX1 shifter, SRAM delivers a single lightweight, durable shifter that offers distinct shifts -- up to 5 in a single motion, yet not too easy so as to shift when you don't intend to.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've logged over 5,000 singletrack miles the last few seasons using an elliptical ring and have yet to drop a chain. I'm a huge fan of the rings in this application, but admittedly most of those miles have been on a Rotor setup - crank & ring combo. It was flawless.

So when I recently got a new whip, and my Rotor crank wouldn't fit, I was pretty bummed, and had to look for a new solution. Absolute Black nailed it, and after a couple hundred miles, I'm all smiles, and likewise have yet to drop a chain.

In all fairness, the pedaling has slightly more feedback on this ring than I had experienced with the Rotor -- it's not enough of an issue to reconsider my build, but worth mentioning.

Always wear a helmet -- you never know when IT is going to happen. This is not a place I try to save money either. My kids (6, 10 & 12) and I swear by these when we mountain bike. POC is committed to making some of the safest equipment available -- and the addition of the MIPS layer in this model only adds confidence and protection. After a few of what otherwise could have been life-changing wrecks, we were able to carry on largely unscathed apart from some quality trail rash.

These are highly adjustable and the visor makes things a bit easier with that early-morning sun. And true to all things POC, the sharp design/colors is an added bonus.

My wife ordered this helmet for it's aerodynamic benefits and was very pleasantly surprised by it's comfort. The honeycomb lining provides plenty of ventilation and the adjustable fit is perfect. Great helmet and even better when paired with the Smith riding glasses.
