SRAM's Apex 1 drivetrain provides the gear range and the shifting simplicity to let you simply go where you want. The Apex 1 rear derailleur makes that gearing choice a reality with clean, crisp shifts, thanks to SRAM's X-Horizon™ geometry and the Roller Bearing Clutch™

Cage Lock™:
With Cage Lock™ technology in the rear derailleur, wheel removal and installation-as well as chain installation-becomes faster and simpler. Just push the cage forward to create slack and lock it into place.

Exact Actuation&:
When SRAM launched their road technology from scratch they reapplied to the MTB proven SRAM 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel: derailleur movement). Exact Actuation helps to simplify and stabilize the uneasy act of balancing rear derailleur hanger design, tight cog spacing, and exact cable tension. The result: the easiest index shifting system to set up-and it stays that way.

Roller Bearing Clutch™:
Rolling Bearing Clutch™ rear derailleurs deliver maximum drivetrain stability-even through the most punishing terrain. With Rolling Bearing Clutch™ technology, derailleur bounce and chain slap are eliminated without sacrificing precision.

The X-Horinzon™ rear derailleur's 'straight parallelogram' design limits all movement to the horizontal axis, which makes ghost shifting impossible while also reducing shift force. For quicker, more exact shifting, the large upper pulley offset design maintains a constant chain gap across all gears.

SRAM X-Sync™ 1x chain rings provide the highest level of performance and durability. The SRAM X-Sync™ tall square teeth edges engage the chain earlier than traditional triangle shaped teeth. The sharp and narrow tooth profile, as well as rounded chamfer edges, help manage a deflected chain. To provide the best possible performance in muddy conditions, the X-Sync™ chain rings have been designed with mud-clearing recesses for the inner chain links and rollers. Engineered in Germany, X-Sync™ rings are an integral part of the SRAM 1x™ drivetrain.
