The direct mount chainring cranksets are the same crank arms that are offered with our SRAM RED, Force, and Rival eTap AXS systems, but with a new direct mount 1x chainring. This chainring offers about 35g of weight savings over a 1x spider system. If you have an existing SRAM RED or Force AXS crankset, we offer direct mount chainrings with the 8-bolt spider interface compatible with these cranks.
There is an additional wide spindle variant available for the Force 1x crankset with the XPLR direct mount chainring. The spider mounted 4-bolt 1x 12-speed chainrings are also fully compatible with XPLR drivetrains.
