How so? They are actually in stock now. Quality seems to be a touch better on the ones I have used, the same models most of us like are still here with a few new ones such as these....you can still get your 'skate' 5/10's

So by your comparison of XTR to GX, you might as well take the next step and say I can't see how XX1 is any better than GX.

When SRAM 1x11 first came out, the XD driver was all-new too, yet that drivetrain was widely praised and credited with ushering in the mass adaptation of the 1x transmission in the MTB world at large. No doubt we'd have much preferred to see wider licensing of the MicroSpline...more

Of all the carbon rim options out there, IF (and that is a big IF) I were to go with carbon rims, this would most likely be the option. Folks saying Zipp has mostly done road/tri stuff...Zipp has been doing carbon longer than most anyone out there. They know a few tricks. Curious...
