Updated Gear Ratios: Comparing SRAM and Shimano’s 1x Drivetrains with XTR M9000
Not too long ago, Switchback Bikes posted an excellent gear ratio comparison chart that was put together by Daryl Smith. Obviously, when Daryl put the chart together the new option packed XTR M9000 group was still under wraps, so the comparison to its 11-40 wide range cassette couldn’t be made. To keep with the times Daryl has updated his chart to include the 1x options for an XTR group.
Crunch the numbers after the jump…
While the chart doesn’t include all of the options for the XTR double or triple, most people concerned will likely want to compare the XX1 to XTR numbers. Thanks to Daryl for putting this new chart together, you can check out his thoughts on the chart design here.
