Will this fit the xx1 eagle cassette 10-52T 12 speed or is this derailleur only compatible with a 10-50 cassette ?

Slow Burn to awesome
- I've put it through the wringer
Having ridden mountain bikes for 30 years, my less than fond memories of various shifters go all the way back to top mount friction thumb shifters. When I installed this I was obviously pretty psyched, but early on I found the shifter (not the shiftING which is perfect) to be a bit annoying. I was constantly bumping it and shifting when I didn't want to. My initial thought was that SRAM should have made it slightly harder to shift to avoid this issue. What I have learned 4 months in is that it just takes time to adapt, and that shifter placement is critical. Because mechanical shifters have some throw to pull cable, we are used to putting it in a spot that allows for all this thumb motion. With AXS, you can tuck it further back under the handlebar because all you are doing is touching it for the shift, which alleviates much of the accidental shifting issue. The other day I demoed a bike with mechanical shifting, and that's when the light really came on. It felt so.....I don't know...clunky and old and quite honestly inferior. I was amazed at all the energy and planning and time it took to successfully execute perfect shifts relative to AXS with a cable between your shifter and derailler. Getting back on my bike and back to these little delicate movements that now define shifting for me was just fantastic. I guess that's the word to describe it...delicate. It would be very difficult to go back to mechanical shifting for me, and good thing I most likely will never have to. BTW I really wanted to give it 4 and a half stars (if that was even possible) because I BADLY want an AXS Reverb dropper but need at least a 185 and SRAM only makes a 170. in the end I realized that has nothing to do with the shifting product and I was just being a spoiled baby. Are you listening SRAM? PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make either a 185 or 200 mmm AXS dropper. I will be first in line...

Effortless shifting, Quick Install
- I've used it several times
I had been debating for a while on whether or not I wanted to make the upgrade to AXS, I eventually caved in and made one of the best purchases I have made for my bike. My setup now looks like this, -XX1 AXS Rear Derailleur -X01 Eagle XG1295 12 Speed Cassette, -XX1 Eagle 12 Speed Chain (Black) -SRAM Eagle 32T Chainring 3mm Offset The Upgrade from my old mechanical shifter took less time to do than changing out a regular shift cable. It took 10 minutes to uninstall the X01 Shifter and cable, Install the new derailleur and set the limit screws. The Shifting is really reliable, very accurate, The controller (shifter) only takes a couple of minutes to get used to and after that, it is second nature, there is a button on the back next to the brake lever, I like to call it the sprint button when you are cruising downhill you can just nudge the sprint button to drop some gears and just disappear! Couple things to note, -Make sure the battery is fully charged before initial use, -Use the included AXS tool to set the B Screw adjustment, -Have fun zipping around with effortless and smooth shifting of AXS Eagle!

hate that I really love it
- I've used it several times
Had a chance to install and ride so here are my initial impressions. I hate that I really love it, yea really, I kind of didn't want to. I didn't want to love electronic shifting on a mtb, I mean come on, it's a mtb. but it was easy to install, and easy to tune, and I'm no master mechanic. I've ridden hard and even raced for a few weeks now and it's been fantastic. fast, crisp shifting. it did take a little getting used to the different feel to shift but after a ride your brain gets it down. It is expensive, agreed, but if you are spending as much on your mtb as you do on your car whats a little extra to get the best.

Can you use the Eagle 12-Speed Cassette with this upgrade kit? Or do you have to use the new AXS Cassette?

You can use a normal Eagle cassette.
