Why We Like The GX Eagle AXS Upgrade Kit

Masters of trickle-down technology, SRAM has impressed us again with the GX Eagle AXS Upgrade Kit. We’re installing this on our bikes right away, ditching the cables and housing that clunk around in our frames all day. Long-awaited, GX AXS Eagle opens the door for a lot more than just dentists to have electronic shifting. GX AXS uses the same proprietary wireless tech as other AXS items, so just like mechanical AXS we'll be able to mix and match the full system.

Ahead of the game, the new GX wireless shifting from SRAM enjoys all the years of testing that X01 and XX1 went through. We’re especially enjoying the crisp feel of the electronic drivetrain, and that every shift feels the same when the element of human error is taken out of the equation. Easy to adjust, the upgrade kit hooks up to the SRAM AXS app instead of having to drag out the toolbox.

  • Trickle-down tech brings Eagle AXS to a lower price point
  • Enjoy precise, silent, and reliable shifting performance
  • Long-lasting alloy design shaves weight without compromise
  • Overload clutch derailleur protects the internal motor from impacts
  • Upgradable buttons on shifter for better ergonomics
  • System is water and dustproof for reliability on the trail
  • Ability to personalized and adjust with the AXS app
  • Upgrade kit includes battery, charger, shifter, and derailleur

Great product until it fails

My son bought the AXS and loved everything about it for the FIRST YEAR. In fact, he would have given it similar reviews found on this page. Then, at an enduro at Silver Mountain in Kellog, ID it started to lose connectivity between the shifter and the derailleur. We discovered that the plastic on the battery had worn down so the fit was no longer tight enough to keep connectivity. He was lucky enough to borrow a battery from a fellow rider and finish the enduro. A week later, after purchasing a new battery, he unfortunately snapped his chain during a ride. After purchasing a new chain, we found that the derailleur no longer worked. We took it to our local mechanic who said it was broken and needed to be serviced, but when I called SRAM they said that the AXS is not serviceable. When I told the customer service rep that my kid was really bummed to have worked to pay off the AXS upgrade and then just a little over a year later have to purchase a mechanical derailleur and shifter for another $300, he simply retorted, "biking isn't cheap." I agree it's not cheap. However, maybe SRAM and other developers should consider that when a new product is 3 to 4 times more expensive than the mechanical derailleur, they should build a product with serviceable/replaceable parts. So, be aware that when or if something goes wrong with this system, you just have to buy another one. IF YOU RIDE A LOT, think about the cost of replacing this derailleur every year or two compared to the cost of a mechanical derailleur. We will not buyer another AXS at this price point.

Thank You Matt for you comment and advice. In a world where is increasingly common non serviceable products, this type of feedback is very important to me. This type of information should be included in the technical specification and disclosure in the marketing materials. As a consumer, we should start asking the manufactures if their products are serviceable or not.

Is there any plan to have a kit for a Gravel Bike with drop bars? I would like to replace my current SRAM Apex 1 on a Gravel bike with drop bars. The chainwheel is 40T and the cassette is 11-42T. It's a 1x11 configuration, but I'm assuming I can limit the 12 speeds on this kit to work with 11. If no kit is planned for drop bars, what drop bar Shifter I can use? It does make sense what I'm planning to do? Tks !

I was lucky enough to grab it when it was in stock. I don’t regret getting rid of the old cable actuated derailleur. Electronic shifting is the future. Very crisp and accurate shifting. Im still on my first charge of battery going 6 hours Of riding. Very easy set up and I’m glad I upgraded.

AXS has been the pinnacle technology in cycling for years and it's inevitable trickle-down has been a terribly kept secret. Now at a much more accessible price point, GX Eagle AXS provides the same crisp and reliable shifting as X01 & XX1 for much less. Get yours now before it's gone!

Install was ridiculously easy. Shifting is magical... Never miss a shift and barely lift a finger to trigger it. I put a lot of miles on my bikes and group sets and switching to SRAM's electronic group sets was the best investment in my riding that I could make. Love the compatibility, value, precise effortless shifting and would recommend this to every rider out there... #SRAM#AXS#mullettbuild

I seriously considered buying AXS a few times but couldn't stomach the price. When the GX came out I was sold. I was amazed how quickly it shipped given it was supposed too be backordered. But I had it in a week. Performs flawlessly and I have yet to dump the battery mod ride. I've had a couple of crashes since installation and no bends or breaks. No malfunctions to speak of. Pretty uses to the paddle shifter now and pleased with it.

I was honestly blown away by my first ride on the GX AXS upgrade. I am someone who prioritizes clean, crisp, accurate shifting. Of note, I ride a 2018 ibis ripmo, and had a well worn XX1 eagle drivetrain. Over the past year I've noticed relatively mediocre shifting performance - mostly with poor accuracy when shifting under any modest load (chain and cassette still good, fresh cable/housing). It's mostly the derailleur that has taken a literal beating over the years- so many impacts and war scars. I jumped at the chance to try electronic shifting once I saw the price of the new GX unit. I also have electronic shifting (shimano DI2) on my gravel bike, which I liked. Things that surprised/impressed me: 1)setup: easy. Pair controller, set limit screws, b tension with included tool. A few micro adjustments (very easy and intuitive) and I was off. 2)smooth shifting under load - WOW!! I can churn up a steep climb, put the power down and still have a nearly silent, perfect shift. I have never experienced anything like this before on a sram drivetrain. 3)accurate perfect shifts. every. single. time. Makes for a quieter ride. 4)controller ergonomics: I like this paddle shifter. On undulating terrain it is so easy and comfortable to have my thumb sit right in the middle. This has led me to shift far more often than I normally would, as it is so fun and easy to do so. The buttons require enough force that I never had any accidental shifts. It's just so well designed. This is probably my favorite upgrade I've made to my mountain bike. If you can afford it and/or are due for a drivetrain refresh, the AXS derailleur is hard to beat.

As good as they say it is

This is a very early review but so far, it has exceeded expectations. Setup in minutes and the shifting in on point every time. I know some upgrade to the new rocker paddle, but I like the shifter it comes with...got used to it very quick. Hopefully it holds up as well as they claim.

Sram Does It Again

Runs large

Sram recently released this new GX AXS Upgrade kit, and they nailed it! I've been running the previous XX1 AXS on my bike and it is flawless, the only issue with XX1 is the price! I definitely think it was worth spending the extra cash for XX1 because at the time i bought it, It was the most current and up-to-date. Sram took the fantastic X01 and XX1 AXS Kits, lowered the price, and packaged it down to the GX AXS, the workhorse of Srams drivetrains. Without sacrificing shift quality, The GX AXS kit just weighs a little bit more. So if you want to jump into electronic shifting on the MTB, this will work on all Eagle Drivetrains. if you have any other questions, feel free to shoot me an email, and I can help get you everything you need to make the switch to Electric! samason@backcountry.com

John Blaicher - from Canada
