One ring to race them all.
Taking its aim from the hugely successful CX1 groupset, SRAM’s Force 1 GXP Crankset retains the cyclocross specific benefits of CX1 and matures them into a fully capable and multidiscipline concept. Force 1 moves your riding in the direction of pure bliss, rewarding you with smoother and cleaner chain lines and greater chain retention. It also removes the annoyance of front derailleur shifting and chain-rub noise.
SRAM achieves one-by bliss with its X-SYNC chain ring, which features tall, narrow teeth that encourages the chain to catch sooner and more securely while shedding any mud you encounter on your adventure. Whether you are cyclocross and gravel-specific or a time-trial enthusiast, crankarm options include both a 110mm and a 130mm BCD option to accommodate a wide range of chainring sizes.

- 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.
