This construction not only ensures a low overall weight, it provides a strength and stiffness far beyond any sold forged type. The GX 1400's X-SYNC™ chainring provides unrivalled durability and chain retention even over the roughest terrain and clears mud well thanks to specific recesses, so you can blast through anything with no drop in performance.
X-SYNC™ - 1x chainrings provide the highest level of performance and durability. The SRAM X-SYNC™ tall square teeth edges engage the chain earlier than traditional triangle shaped teeth. The sharp and narrow tooth profile and the rounded chamfer edges, help manage a deflected chain. To provide the best possible performance in muddy conditions, the X-SYNC™ chainrings have been designed with mud-clearing recesses for the inner chain links and rollers. Engineered in Germany, X-SYNC™ rings are an integral part of the SRAM 1x™ drivetrain.
OCT (Open Core Technology)™ - To fabricate Open Core Technology a single mass of premium alloy is pushed, pulled and squeezed into a hollow crank arm. During SRAM's exclusive process the magic happens, producing supreme strength while remaining weight-conscious. SRAM may have not been the first to fabricate hollow crank arms, but they are the best by yielding the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio out there. OCT cranks are stiffer, stronger, and lightweight beyond any solid forged crankset and when with the use of SRAM'S AL-7050-TV to fabricate with OCT the results are impressive.
BB30 - Besides serious weight savings, this bottom bracket means narrow Q-factor, more ankle clearance, greater bearing durability and stronger crank construction.
