Simplify the Ride.
There may be no real need to go to a one-by set up on your road rig, but the SRAM Force 1 BB30 Crankset may create the logic to do so—especially if your road rides tend to start on tarmac and end on gravel or dirt. Force 1 shares the same goals as the successful SRAM CX1 crankset, and those are to give you less chain drops and shift misses, as well as cleaner lines for the chain and your eyes. The SRAM X-Sync chainring holds your chain tight and works to clear any trail debris from the chain should you get dirt-minded on your road adventure. And with the variety of chainring sizes available, the Force 1 is ready to do a 200-mile flat epic or dance with you as you tackle some off-road mountain passes.

1x Every Time
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
1x is the way to go for cyclocross or gravel bikes hands down. You don't have to hassle with front derailleurs, and you can run an extended range cassette in the rear. It will bring the weight of your bike down. You won't have to worry about mud building up during muddy races on the front derailleur. Less moving parts the better for those muddy days out on the bike.
What is the chainline dimension for the 110 BCD 42T version of this crankset?
I have the Sram PF30 Bottom Bracket installed on my bike (in fact, you guys installed it). Will this crank set work with that Bottom Bracket? Thanks!
Yes the same 30mm spindle crankset is used with both BB30 and PF30 bottom brackets.
