    They're seriously going to a 10 - 50 tooth rear cassette?

    The main question is, will this fit current hubs?

    Very interesting, looks like it offers similar range to 2X setups. I predict this will be the nail in the coffin for front dérailleurs.

    why the 50 tooth?

    how much more efficient would it be to have a better/compact gear ratio for 10-42 rather than sticking a useless/cartoonish 50 tooth on it for a ridiculous low gear.

    who is this aimed for certainly not the XC race crowd.

    The major question is - it will drop 3/24 for Sea otter - when will it be available OE?

    Pretty soon they will come out with a 9x3. Front will be a 11-34 and the back will be 22-32-42.

    It's aimed at anyone who finds the range of current 11 speeds limiting but doesn't want to run a 2x setup. I don't think many people will pay to upgrade to 1x12 just to decrease the gap between gears by 1%.

    Here's an informative article. It looks like SRAM is stopping all future development on front derailleurs.

    I know it's online somewhere but how much heavier is the top of the line XX1 with 50 tooth cog compared to the top of the line XX1 11 speed with 42 tooth cog?

    From what I have seen on pricing you can buy this group for your bike for a paltry $1500--cassette $500, shifter $325, chain $100, derailleur $500....... Aside from that fact, I really don't understand why an even bigger rear cog is needed. So if someone can explain to my why I absolutely need more range than 10-42 in the back would be interested.

    I'm running a 30t front for climbing ability but on fast descents or even with a good tail wind will spin out. The 50t cog rear will allow me to switch to a 34t front to get a very slightly better low gear but a much better top end. Only downside I can see is cost.

    Makes sense and sounds good. But for this much money (actually less) can get a Rolhoff with 14 speeds also optimal steps. The only drawback is hard to have multiple wheel sets with that setup.

    You don't need 10-42 either, you could get away with 11-36 and a smaller chain ring.
