The launch of the new SRAM eTap AXS and Eagle AXS wireless shifting road and mountain bike groups have ushered in fully customizable, electronically controlled components. And for the road, they’ve changed the way we think about gearing, offering distinctly new chainring and cassette combos that promise a more useable range that’ll work better for more riders in more conditions. We covered the deep tech behind each group, and the new AXS app in great detail in our launch posts, but now it’s time to take a closer look at how they work. Three videos below run through the why and what, with the last video showing what you can do inside the AXS app and how those new Sequential and Multi-shift patterns work. Enjoy!

In this video, I refer to the Eagle AXS group as Eagle eTap AXS, but in fact, there’s no “eTap” in the MTB group’s naming. For the full tech details, check this post, and to see more about the Reverb’s inner workings, click here.
