Sram At Interbike Part 2: Truvativ


News & Reviews
Jun 26, 2009

The second installment of our Sram booth coverage will focus on Truvativ's 2011 line of parts. This includes the all new Descendant cranks, which were seen on Steve Peat's Worlds bike, as well as a couple of other shiny parts.

The Holzfeller direct mount stem for the Boxxer features a four bolt design, comes in either 50 or 60mm lengths and weighs 190 grams.

It will be available in red and white.

The Holzfeller stem knocks 20 grams off last year's version, coming in at 190g.

Holzfeller bars at 700mm and 260 grams.

The Descendant crank is Truvativ's newest DH item; it weighs 822 grams (240g less than Holfeller OCTs) and comes in 73 and 83mm bottom bracket options. The tag line that comes along with these is "7 out of 8 World Cup wins" in its first year. Pretty good!

Maybe it's just Peaty's bike, but the Descendant's look quite appealing right now...

The roaring success of Hammerschmidt has ensured that this design isn't going away any time soon. The cranks weigh in at 1623g and offer shifting perfection.

The 2011 X9 cranks will come in black with either white, red or black accents. They weigh 881 grams.
