    SRAM Eagle AXS - cassette question

    I have a gravel bike with a SRAM Eagle AXS derailleur, XD hub and XG-1275 cassette (10-50).
    If I build a 2nd pair of wheels, can I use a wheel with an XDR hub and an XG-1270 cassette (10-33), and it will work with the Eagle derailleur?

    I don't believe it will. The Eagle derailleurs are designed to work with the Eagle Chain whereas the XG-1270 uses the Flattop Chain.

    According to one of the replies here, it seems that SRAM XDR cassettes are specifically cut to work with their flat top chain only.

    You're not completely out of luck tough, as can be seen in the 3T blog, Rotor makes a 12 speed cassette that does appear to work fine with Eagle components. It's unbelievably expensive, though, at least here in Europe - it's almost 3x the price of a 1270.
