This just in from the boys KORE USA. Looks like a solid bet for those jumping on the SRAM XX1 drivetrain. Choo choooo!



Back in mid 2012 we started to hear rumors and see spy pictures of SRAM’s 11 x 1 XX1 drivetrain setup. When we first saw this we thought what a great idea to simply do away with the front derailleur and achieve a very similar gear ratio set up by adding an extra large ring to the rear cassette. At this time KORE decided we wanted to be among the first few companies to offer our hubs with a compatible freehub to accept the new 11 speed cassette. After some initial talks we agreed a license to offer these and started working on the freehub, we have tried very hard on this project and attention to detail is second to none so that we are 100% confident we have one of the best compatible XX1 freehubs on the market.

We will be offering our XX1 freehubs for our 2013 Durox and Torsion hubs in alloy and cro-mo versions and they will be available on XCD-SL, DUROX and MEGA complete wheelsets. The alloy Durox version weighs 11 grams less than our standard freehub which makes the Durox rear 12/142 hub a very respectable 240g.

"With the cycle industry seemingly going crazy with the launch of Sram’s XX1 system and reports from Sram that initial orders were 3 times more than expected, we were stoked to be able to offer our XX1 freehubs at this early stage in the 2013 season. Our test guys who were part of the elite few to receive early sample XX1 kits have been extensively testing the freehubs on both our Durox and Torsion hubs for months now with no issues. The rest of us can’t wait to our hands on an XX1 set up when it becomes readily available at the end of January. Our hats are truly off to Sram for pushing the limits within the cycle industry and bringing everyone a new great product!" - KORE Brand Manager Ollie Thomas
