2017 Pinkbike Awards: Component of the Year Winner

Dec 14, 2017
by Pinkbike Staff  
PB Awards





Why it's the winner:

Pro-level features priced for enthusiast riders. That was the common thread for the three candidates nominated for Component of the Year. E*thirteen's TRS Race cassette is lightweight, user-serviceable, and offers 11-speed Shimano and SRAM owners a wider gearing range than SRAM's class.leading Eagle 12-speed transmission. TRP's G-Spec Quadiem brakes were co-developed and race-proven by Aaron Gwin. We rated them best in class, and you still can buy a set for $199 a side. SRAM, wins it, however, for bucking the "trickle-down" trend with its 12-speed Eagle ensemble.

Eagle GX was brought to market right on the heels of SRAM's high-end Eagle XX1 and X01 groups. The quick and decisive launch of GX at less than half the cost of its premier wide-range 12-speed transmissions was a dramatic reversal of the wait-for-it ploy that both Shimano and SRAM have historically used to maximize their profits. GX Eagle could not have come at a better time. Trail-bike development had peaked, and high-performance models were being priced out of reach of enthusiast riders. SRAM's introduction of GX seems to have inspired an influx of more affordable, kick-ass trail bikes - which is why we chose it for the 2017 Component of the Year.



From the Whyte S-150 Carbon Review:
bigquotesMost speculated that SRAM would maintain the premium price of its 12-speed Eagle drivetrain for years to come. Instead, they immediately began scaling down costs to make Eagle more accessible. The release of its affordable GX ensemble this year elevates the technical performance of bikes like the Whyte S-150C RS to levels that approach elite models that most riders can only dream to own.

 I have an old hybrid mtb with 3x9 and two bikes with 1x11 XT. The only advantage is that I can go slightly faster with the older hybrid because of the largest front chainring is 42t, and on the 1x11 bikes I use 34t front chainring. But the 3x9 speed is shifting rather chunky and the chainline is pretty awkward on the smallest and the largest front chainring. I think 2x11 is the way to go if you have need for speed. Sorry for missing any sarcasm.

 If you are getting a mew bike why not get Eagle??? I really don't know why people are so angry, I got eagle about 8 months ago on my new bike and it has been flawless, I really love the gear range coming from a 10 speed. Some people can afford new bikes some people can't, but do you really expect companies to stop developing new products??
  • + 3
 Because most people don't want to spend that kind of money on a part that wears out in one season. People say it will last longer if you get a new chain every few months but who really does that. You risk getting worse shifting because the teeth are adapted to the old chain.
  • + 13
 @joni0001984: I do that. Buy a chain wear indicator tool, check your chain once a month, and replace it when it's worn.
  • + 14
 never go full Eagle
  • + 6
 I clean my chain regularly and it is usually in good condition, I've been riding mine once or twice a week since April and there is no wear on the cassette. If my chain gets stretched I will buy a new one, I have the chain that came with the bike still. After winter is over I will buy a new chain, seems simply to me. Having worked at shop it amazes me how little, or if at all people perform maintenance on their bike. It doesn't even have to be anything technical, just get some degreaser and a tooth brush for christ's sake. Cleaning your bike after riding sucks but you do it anyway. If you can afford a $5k bike you can afford to take it to the shop, if you can't afford an expensive bike or shop maintenance you damn well better know how to work on it your self.

 Here come the haters. No, a 500% spread doesn't mean you have a winch for the lowest gear, it means you can run a larger front chainring, and no, having a 34 or 36 tooth chainring doesn't mean you're hitting F1 speeds.
  • + 12
 I never really get spun out on my 11-42 with 30t ring except for on logging roads, which I am not too worried about losing a few seconds on. Plus I have read with my frame it gets a little bobby with a larger chain ring, but I have never tried a bigger one. I mean if I won the Eagle in the advent contest (not holding my breath on that one) I'd probably run it but the XT is just so much cheaper and works for my needs considering the cassette wears out every year or two.
  • + 4
 I have a hard time believing Joe Schmo trail rider really needs a 34 or 36. That's what EWS pros are running on 27.5, and some are even running 32s on 29. Gwinn runs a 32t on 27.5. You ain't that fast Joe.

 @iantmcg: sounds a bit impossible with bobbing. In the case of most frames, the bigger the ring, the more anti squat.

 @iantmcg: as far as I know, in case of most frames yes. Off course it depends how you pedal on that big ring so what I mean is: it’s all theory. I can’t tell since I pedal on big ring since quite a long time. But I remember bobbing on Nomad with granny ring. Sometimes you can see dudes spinning real fast how the whole bike is moving up and down. They look like shagging hamsters with sticks in their buts. Off course some of it is poor rebound setting. Good riders tend to have a smooth pedal stroke, regardless of cadence

 Sam Hill ran several EWS rounds with Eagle + 32t on a 27.5.

32t x 27.5 is about the same speed range as 30t x 29 btw, so even a 30t really isn't that low of gear when mounted on a 29.

Overall I think amateurs would be better served by easier gearing than what companies are currently offering, Sram and Shimano are both selling pro-level gearing for riders that aren't that fast.
  • + 9
 @dthomp325: Then you'll never believe that some people use to run a system called 2x10 where they frequently had 38 or even 40T chainrings. Hell, there are even tales of yore of folks having run an ancient system called 3x10 where the chainrings had a mighty 42 or 44 teeth. Oh, how mighty the men must have been back then, with legs like oak trees if you believe the oldtimer's stories.
  • + 17
 @WAKIdesigns: Smaller chainrings increase antisquat. As an omniscient in the mountain bike world, I am shocked you don’t know this. As your penance, you must run a single pivot, Horst link, VPP, and DW Link through Linkage Design with 26, 28, 30, 34, 36, and (only because you run it) 38 tooth chainrings. When done you must compile all 24 combinations by bike, chainring size, and antisquat percent, then post it here fully formated.
  • + 4
 @WAKIdesigns: sorry but antisquat is typically connected with chainstay pivot location near the top of the front ring. Unfortunately this also rises pedal kickback. In two rings setup designers typically optimized antisquat for granny ring and kickback for large ring. All german host-link bikes and many other were (and some still are) designed in such a way.
1xX simply requires more compromises in that matter. But people have already voted against 2x, so there is not much to argue about.
  • + 2
 @lkubica: how dare you let the cat out of the bag. The drivetrain manufactures don’t want people to know that there is a free lunch on the antisquat/bob/pedal kickback by using a double or triple on the front. I loved my 2x10 and only went 1x because of chain/chain interfearence in the low gears running wide tires.
  • + 3
 @carym: ? Seems much easier to correctly set anti-squat when the range is limited to 30t-34t. With 2x and 3x the value is going to be wildly wrong in at least one gear. Set anti-squat correctly for the "low" gear, and it will be too high with the associated pedal kick-back in the "high" gear. Set anti-squat correctly for the "high" gear, and it will be too low and bob while climbing your "low" gear.

flag WAKIdesigns (Dec 14, 2017 at 9:55) (Below Threshold)
 I’ll ask some bike designer about it in the future. I must have misinterpreted something. Now that I think about it yeah, bigger the ring the more it pulls the rear axle upwards. Which brings me to a conclusion... if you want a big range, get a front mech and a granny ring, your chainline will be better too, less crossing of the chain, more efficiency... which brings me to another conclusion... EAGLE is stupid!!!
  • + 4
 @WAKIdesigns: "most" maybe, but not all. I ride a Canfield and it's designed for a 28-30t ring, with something like a 20% hit to anti-squat if you're using a 32t. Every suspension design has an ideal chainring size, where the chainline in the bigger cog at the sag point is directly lined up with the pivot location and produces minimal pedal feedback (give or take, depending on design, etc.)

@iantmcg A smaller chainring than the "ideal" will increase bob, but it will be like the old Santa Cruz Hecklers, where the chainline is inside the pivot and so the chain wants to pull the suspension _up_ in its travel rather than down as you put power to the pedals. A larger chainring, conversely, will push the bike deeper into its travel under power.

Lots of nuance (much of which I don't understand) but that's the basics of it, and it's why single pivot and Horst bikes have the main pivot right about at the top of the chainring (and why high-pivot bikes use an idler pulley).

Disclaimer: not a bike designer, just a big nerd.
  • + 2
 @TucsonDon:

You've gotta remember we were also on 26" wheels back then, which required significantly more gearing to achieve the same speed, and cassettes didn't have 10 or 9 or even 11 if you go back far enough.

I used a 22/34/bash back in the 3x days for trail riding in Tucson. My early 2000s XC MBAA rig had a 2x with a 38 I think, but I don't really remember.

I have current top 10 Strava times on several Milagrosa segments with my 30t...

Gwinn rides 32t, Sam Hill rides 32t or 34t, and most WC XC riders run 34 or 36 (Nino runs 38, but he's a freak), so I really don't think these large rings are needed by your average amateur.

 @freeridejerk888: that was just trolling mate... I use 34t with 40t rear, it means I have more squat than if I used Eagle... the moral of the story is: the only thing that works is hardening up, training, exercising, practicing...

 No hate - you do you and enjoy the ride. But my 11-42 10sp x 32t still works fine for me, even when busting out a "quick" 12 mile ride with >2k' gain.

 @dthomp325: Ha, we've probably raced together. I would have been riding Cat2 back in the early 2000's. I mostly thought I was being freaking hilarious. I currently run a 32 on FS and a 34 on my HT. The only time I really wish for more is on the downhill into Prescott at the end of the Whiskey Off-Road.
  • + 3
 @iantmcg: One of the big reasons to run a wide range with a bigger chainring is to give the bike a better chainline. You can stay more towards the middle of the cassette in most scenarios when putting the power down.
  • + 2
 @dthomp325: single ring narrows the window, but generally more antisquat helps in climbing and less in descending (brake jack is the opposite side of the coin). You still get chages in antisquat with 1x systems because the casette size also affects it, but it changes lesw than a 2x system.

 I usually just post flippant remarks on PB that are largely ignored, although I find them hilarious.
That being said, I have been riding my bike with an Eagle set up for the past year. Honestly, it has been flawless. It is every bit as good as the reviews if not better. I have ridden a lot (I am old, like Wade and Tippy vintage) of different set ups and this is by far the best. I know it is expensive, but if you have the cash Eagle is clearly the top drivetrain.

I got myself new XX1 eagle group but XX1 shifter wasn't available, so I had to make due with GX shifter for a while.

While XX1 cassette is really pretty and light, GX Eagle shifter and derailleur are great.

 I recently bought a bike that came with GX Eagle and had been riding a bike with XO1 for a few years. Both systems are great but the performance and range of Eagle is unmatched. I'm flat out faster especially on the climbs with the 12x. As far as the Guide R brakes spec'd on the bike, those are simply garbage in my opinion. The front has been bled twice already and the bike is less than a month old. Back to XTs it is...

 @JonnyPollock: man, thanks for the heads up. I've only ridden XT and SLX brakes for years and was cautiously optimistic about using the Rs. Very disappointed but I think I'll go back to XTs. I'll look into the RSCs but honestly I'm hesitant to use any model of Guides.

 Dang, I keep hearing about how bad the Guides are but I have nothing but good luck with mine.
  • + 3
 @COnovicerider: There was a bad batch of Guides this year. The tolerance was off in the taperbore or something, so if they overheated something would get stuck and the bar would just go right to the lever or something. One of my local shops had over 70 pair waiting to get sent back to SRAM. Even new bikes, if they got hot in shipment were coming in with brakes that didn't work at all. SRAM may or may not have fixed it by now, but they're definitely aware of the issue.
  • + 1
 @TucsonDon: craziness. Thanks for the info, Don. I'll try to get these warrantied because they're pure garbage. Should I go through my shop or contact SRAM directly? I just bought a Spot and the bike is awesome but the current state of the brakes have made it unrideable. Basically it's not safe to ride at all.

 Agreed! Love the Eagle lineup. I upgraded to the X01 Eagle on my old Spartan and I admit, it hurt the bank. But I loved it. When I built my '18 Spartan, I went with the GX to keep the price of the build down. So far I am very impressed and can't really tell the difference between the performance of the GX and X01. Obviously, the X01 is lighter but the performance to an Intermediate enthusiast rider feels the same. Bravo SRAM!

 I used to ride shimano 1x10 with an 11-36 cassette and 32t oval chainring in the front for the last 4 years. I was a doubter at first about eagle, I tried a lot of chhhe-ram 11s shifters and combo and they never really felt great or a much needed upgrade from shimano.
When I got my new bike, it came with the gx eagle groupo and a 34t front chainring. The shifting is really crisp, hasn't had any problem in the 450km I rode in the last two months and the spread of the gears seems better/smoother than my older 11-36. Not gonna lie, I don't really use the 50t uunless it's really steep or really muddy and you need a really low gear to keep on pushing on.
I personally wouldn't buy the groupo as an upgrade seeing as it can get quite pricy if you factor in all the parts, but if your brand new bike comes with it, there's really nothing to complain about (even the derailleur cage length, I probably broke close to 20 rear derailleurs since I started riding but this one doesn't have a scratch nor did it seem to hit stuff easily along trails) , it just works bloody damn well.

 I don't get where all the hate is coming from, I just got a new bike with Eagle GX on it and it and its been great, the 50t really helps pushing a 31lb bike up PNW hills .Other than some initial teething issues with it not being adjusted right from the shop at first its been flawless.

 I actually just sold my XO1 eagle to go with an XT M8000 drivetrain with an e13 trs+ 9-46t cassette. This setup is over $400 cheaper and the shifting so much crisper than Sram will ever be able to achieve. And for comparison's sake, I have ran most drivetrains on the market asides from Microshift and Box and I have to say XT M8000 is the best shifting and also the most bang for your buck. And with the e13 cassette, I have more range than eagle and a lighter weight setup.
  • + 3
 @linksys77: Sram does not have the same level of engineering & quality production control in their products. If you take apart a sram shifter it is almost the same product it was ten years ago, in fact you can just replace the metal cog in the 9 & 10 speed to turn it into a 11 or 12 speed shifter.
  • + 1
 @Gregorysmithj1: why change what isnt broken? The shimano shifter is the only postive thing about the shimano 11 speed systems, the cassette is a joke of a rushed product and the derailleur was fitted with a longer b tension screw to kinda work. The amount of shimano cassettes I have seen with chain catching burs is horrendous and the many mangled pulley wheels that have passed qc are a joke
  • + 4
 It is if you already have 11 speed. Going from 10 speed, the difference in cost between GX 11 speed and an E13 cassette and GX Eagle is less than $20. The Eagle shifter, derailler, cassette and cahain are $375 and can be found 15%. Yes, it is heavier, but also is supposed to shift slightly better and not drop chains when backpedaling.

To me, I see it as if you already have 11 speed with an XD driver, the e13 cassette is the way to go. Going from 9 or 10 speed, Eagle GX.
  • + 5
 @Tr011: Have you ever even used a Shimano 11-speed drivetrain? Longer B-screw? Seriously? The Dyna-Sys11 derailleur is COMPLETELY different than the old Dyna-Sys derailleur.

Conversely, the SRAM X-Dome cassette is the only positive thing about SRAM 11-speed systems. Shimano's shifters, deraileurs and cranks are all superior.

XT M8000 is the ruler of drivetrains. You just can't beat it. You can even pair it with an e13, OneUp, or Sunrace cassette and have Eagle's range with Shimano quality. Less than $350 for an 11-50t drivetrain (crank included). Untouchable.

 It's time for me to replace my cassette, and I've been trying to decide between the E*thirteen and Eagle. What I've heard (though not experienced firsthand) is that while the E*thirteen range is a bit bigger, the Eagle is much smoother, and many riders that have experienced both prefer the Eagle.

Plus, if you're already 1x up front, the prices of both are pretty similar.

 I’d just buy the new e*thirteen 9-46 TRS+ cassette. It’s on sale a lot of places right now for $225. It’s identical
