Before Eagle even made its first squawk, there were rumours of its arrival. There was the talk of a 12-speed drivetrain with a huge range of gears, and a dinner plate sized cassette. For many, this was laughed off as a hoax, while others, already enjoying the freedom of a one-by drivetrain held on in hope. When the Eagle did…

Ours is a relentless pursuit: to make the climb shorter, the trail smoother, the turn tighter, the descent faster. Incremental enhancements. Perpetual improvements. Revolutionary Innovation. When advancements are continuously made to every attribute of every component, the result is overall performance that is simply second to none. And to real cycling enthusiasts, there is nothing more gratifying then achieving the ultimate ride. And the best part is we just keep making it better. This is what SRAM is all about. Sure, a casual rider will appreciate solid performance, reliability, dependability and all the standard qualities one would expect. But it's the riders who live and breathe bicycles who love us most because bicycles are what we love, too. In fact, they're our only love. Narrow minded yet forward thinking. Bike components are all we do - which is why we do them so mind-bendingly well. SRAM Corporation began with the goal of creating the absolute best shifting system and changed the cycling world forever with the of Grip Shift. To support the innovation, we invested in Sachs Bicycle Company and built a s. Not content to stop there, we knew expanding our line with the best brakes, bottom brackets and cranksets would fine-tune the ride even more. So we teamed up with Avid and Truvativ. 1987 Product/Service
