Judging by the company’s marketing materials, SRAM seems particularly excited about the front shifting of XX. By offering the dual chainrings only in specific ratios, the company claims to have greatly increased the number of “sweet spots” where the chain can switch between rings. In practical terms, this should mean more immediate front Replica Omega 4813.30.01 Co-Axial Small Seconds Watch shifts and fewer dropped or jammed chains. Stopping comes from carbon-lever hydraulic disc brakes said to weigh a full 55 grams less than Avid’s top-of-the-line Juicy Ultimates.
Since XX is specific for cross-country and endurance racing (Frenchman Julien Absalon won a World Cup cross-country event in Madrid last month on XX), weight has been a primary concern. Claimed starting weight for a full group, not including forks or shocks, is 2,300 grams, which makes it lighter than a lot of road groups.I’ll be Replica Omega 4570.71 De Ville Prestige Watch getting my first ride on XX later this month, so check back for a full review.—John BradleyTwitter: johnwbradley
The back, unlike the crown, is nicely and deeply machined with the logo, model and the serial number. The back is screwed in with 7 screws, and flat satin finished, just like Franck Muller watches. The watch is mounted on a Blue, Crocodile-embossed leather strap with an aftermarket deployant. The Original band is a blue genuine alligator strap, on a DS Deployany, but I found the original deployant uncomfortable for my smaller wrists. The Replica Omega 1252.30 Constellation Watch deployant is positioned slightly too far over on smaller wrists.Here is a shot of the 33 x 44 mm case on my 6 34 wrist. As you can see, its a beautiful watch and wears wonderfully. You can see the Double-AR coated and curved Sapphire crystal shows the dial beautifully, as does the organically curved stainless steel case. Hope you guys enjoyed the review!
