SRAM's new 1x11 drivetrain was officially released today. Highlights include the single-ring carbon crank, unique chain ring, horizontal parallelogram rear derailleur, and a super wide range 11-speed 10-42 tooth cassette. The increased range provides a much closer overall range to 2X setups than 1x9 or 1x10 speed offerings. Good riddance front derailleur. Can't say we'll miss ya. The complete system will retail for $1449.
