SRAM Force 1 X-Sync BB30 Crankset
Game-changing is the only way to describe the SRAM Force 1 X-Sync BB30 Crankset. An integral part of the high-performance SRAM Force CX1 1x11 drivetrain that blends the superb SRAM Force 22 groupset with that of their MTB 1x technology for unbeatable durability, simplicity, and efficiency.
As with all of SRAM's products, the weight to efficiency balance has been optimised. This comes in the form of the unidirectional carbon fibre crank arm that is paired with a forged alloy spider. To this, you can attach one of the ranges of rings that are available for aftermarket personalisation, or enjoy either the 50 or 52T that you choose this crank to come with.
The choice of bottom bracket is also a weight conscious decision. BB30 offers excellent savings, whilst also offering improvements in bearing durability, crank construction and ankle clearance. Handily, this is also a very common bottom bracket choice amongst manufacturers, so compatibility should not be an issue.
In cyclocross, the mud and abuse of most courses make a front derailleur an unwanted fragile area, that normally fills with mud so it cannot be used. Therefore, using the SRAM Force CX1 high-performance 1x11 cyclocross drivetrain saves weight and hassle.
The rings stand out for their wide-tooth, narrow-tooth chainring technology that provides the maximum chain control that is crucial to a one X drivetrain.
A deflected chain is managed by the sharp and narrow tooth profile in combination with the rounded chamfer edges.
Finally, the recesses for the inner chain links and rollers provide the mud clearance that confirms beyond doubt this chainrings prowess in the cyclocross arena.
