Always on the forefront of technology, SRAM keeps pushing the limits of what we thought was possible time and time again, first with one-by, then twelve-speed, and now the brand is soaring even further into the future with wireless mountain bike drivetrains, and the Eagle AXS Controller offering one shifter to rule it all.
