SRAM’s 1X (one-by) groupsets dominate the off-road world – from cyclocross to MTB, many bike companies supply their off-road racing machines with a single ring set up.

The one-by technology comes from the mountain bike world and it worked so well that SRAM decided it could apply it to cyclocross and even the road.

“Most importantly SRAM 1X improves the rider experience,” says JP McCarthy, the man that oversaw the transition of one-by technology from mountain biking into cross and finally into the road market.

Actually the 110BCD goes up to 50T, I have a 50T on my Felt F4x and it has a 110BCD. I believe the 52T makes the jump to 130BCD.
