Some Reviews: SRAM GX Eagle
Sup Addicts! So I’ve been on the fence here lately about buying a new bike or upgrading components on my old bike. Like everyone else the past several months I’ve been going crazy of the newer and more affordable SRAM’s 1×12 system, The SRAM GX Eagle!
So. Since I’ve been sifting through the net researching this drive train anyway, I though I might share some helpful reviews I’ve found. Maybe someday soon I can get my own review up on it. But for now, here we go!

In this article from September 2017 you get a nice overview of the GX Eagle Drivetrain. While it’s not a full on long-term review, the article is well written and showcases the drivetrain well. You can read the full article here SRAM GX Eagle 1×12 – Dirt – Dirt Mountain Bike Magazine.
I rather like Singletracks writeup on the GX Eagle. It’s honest and in depth and goes well beyond the scope of a basic review. They go as far to even break out the math to show the gearing advantage of the 50 tooth cog. Give this one a read for sure! Review: 400 Miles on SRAM’s GX Eagle Drivetrain.
This is Bike Radar’s first ride review of the GX Eagle. And while the “ride” section at the end is a tad short, this review does an awesome job of showcasing the technology that goes into this drivetrain. You can read up about it here: SRAM GX Eagle first ride review.
