SRAM has utilised its extensive brand catalogue to bring the XPLR ecosystem to gravel bikes. The selection includes SRAM XPLR 1x drivetrains, with the 12-speed cassette and 44T range created to meet the needs of the discipline, a RockShox Rudy suspension fork, RockShox Reverb dropper seatpost and Zipp 101 wheels. 

Limited component availability has been one of the major obstructions holding up stock for manufacturers, causing the perfect storm of supply and demand imbalance the cycling industry has experienced during the Covid pandemic. Therefore, every new drop of kit represents an opportunity to get another line of bikes out the door and into the waiting arms of consumers.
