1.5 years after the SRAM X01 DH drivetrain was announced, the proven technology trickles down the line. The SRAM GX DH is a simple and durable 1×7 groupset aimed at gravity riders, packing the performance of the X01 DH components into a much more affordable package. More information directly from SRAM:


PG-720 Cassette

No mixed messaging or compromises here. The GX DH cassette was built with only one purpose in mind—exploiting gravity to its fullest lap after lap. This downhill-optimized 7-speed cassette provides gear steps that give each shift more purpose, and its compact design allows more spoke clearance. It’s a full-on, dedicated SRAM 1x cassette for gravity that lets you keep some money for a lift ticket. GX DH—Get Some.

Price: € 36 (£ 26, $ 30)


GX DH 1x X-Horizon rear derailleur

We understand that the gnarly line requires a lot more focus than a lap of the supermarket. That’s why we packed the GX DH 1x X-HORIZON rear derailleur with World Championship-winning features, and gave it a price tag that speaks more to the Wednesday Night Championships. This is a DH derailleur that is easier to shift, is incredibly precise and keeps the unwanted noise of chain slap to a minimum, so you can concentrate on the sweet feeling of nailing your line. GX DH—Get Some.

Price: € 119 (£ 88, $ 104)


GX DH 1x X-Actuation Trigger Shifter

The authentic click of the GX DH Trigger Shifter means it’s time to sprint out of the corner, set up for the next big table, or put in that last kick to the finish line. A critical component in the lineup, the GX DH shifter is engineered in Germany to deliver clockwork- accurate shifting when you want it. GX DH—Get Some.

Price: € 48 (£ 35, $ 43)
