The new SRAM Force CX1 groupset is a complete high-performance 1x11 cyclocross drivetrain created by blending the best of SRAM's revolutionary XX1 mountain bike and road technologies. This phenomenal single-ring, 11-speed complete drivetrain is lighter, simpler, and tougher while offering a clean look and optimal gear selection for cyclocross. SRAM Force CX1 offers exceptional chain management and smooth shifting no matter the conditions or terrain. Leave the competition behind this season with a little help from SRAM FORCE CX1.
SRAM Force CX1 brake levers are bred from the DNA of our the best-in-class SRAM Red, representing SRAM's most advanced thinking on perfecting the interface between cyclocross rider and bike. When running a 1x drivetrain, there's really no reason for a left shifter. The CX1 brake lever solves that problem, ditching the left shifting mechanism and offering simple, streamlined braking peformance.

I'm happy with my 1x road drivetrain. I use 46t and 11-42. 1x is simpler, more reliable, easier to install and adjust/maintain, and it looks better. It weights about the same as 2x because although you lose your front shifter, derailleur, inner chainring, and cable and housing, you need a bigger cassette and rear derailler. A 10-42 or 11-42 gives you all the range you could possibly need for any ride except maybe if you're loaded with a ton of gear and need super small gears. Plus the steps between gears are optimal - requires only 1 shift to find the right gear rather than several with narrower cassettes. It's nice to have gears that shift perfectly finally. I could never get my front derailleurs to work flawlessly. If you're thinking about trying 1x, go for it. Everything about it is superior in my opinion.
