Not content with three 12-speed electronic drivetrain options, SRAM has launched Apex AXS, sitting below its Red AXS, Force AXS and Rival AXS groupsets

It’s one-by only (1x) and available in XPLR wide-range configuration with 10-36t, 10-44t and 11-44t cassettes. While the cassettes starting at 10 teeth require an XDR freehub, the 11-44t cassette fits on a standard 11-speed freehub, adding extra wheel compatibility.
