The SRAM XX SL chain was specially developed to further optimize theEagle Transmissiondrivetrain system. To really get the most out of it and raise the strength-to-weight ratio to an unprecedented level, the 12-speed T-Type chain features outer links with a cutout design. The innovative Flattop™ profile, already known from the road bike sector, not only adapts perfectly to the modern Superbike look, but also improves shifting performance and durability to a maximum.
Features of the SRAM XX Eagle SL Transmission chain
Flattop™ construction on top for ultimate shifting performance and unparalleled aesthetics
outer plates with cutouts for a super light chain design
hard-chrome plated surfaces and hollow rivets for maximum durability
including PowerLock™ chain connector matched to Flattop™ design
Note:Only compatible with SRAM Eagle Transmission drivetrains and T-Type components only. Not suitable for E-MTBs.
Flattop™ |To create cassettes with a wider ratio range and correspondingly smoother, smaller-step gear changes, it requires a narrower chain. To ensure that durability does not suffer, SRAM has added material to the flat side of the outer plates and hard-chrome plated the rivets, inner plates and bushings. This way, the Flattop™ chains not only outperform the conventional models in terms of tensile strength and durability, but also increase efficiency and smooth running properties.
