With the first round of the Enduro World Series for 2021 done and dusted today, we thought we’d give you a closer look at the Team Issue Process X’s that Connor and Miranda are riding for 2021.
SRAM has been a long-time team supporter so you’ll see a lot of SRAM and ROCKSHOX products on these bikes. We may as well start with the drivetrain. Up front you’ll find a SRAM XO carbon crankset with a 34t SRAM direct mount chainring. Chain retention comes courtesy of OneUp Components chain guide.
SRAM’s XO AXS rear derailleur handles the shifting and works in unison with a XX1 cassette and chain.
The cockpit is anchored by a bar stem combo from Deity Components with a color-matched OneUp EDC tool and ODI Elite Pro lock-on grips. Super clean AXS shifters and SRAM Code RSC brakes handle stopping duties.
The SRAM AXS Reverb needs no introduction.
Connor loves the feel of coil shocks and is sporting a RockShox Super Deluxe Coil out the rear.
Wheels are Chris King ISO hubs laced to ENVE M9 rims wrapped in Maxxis Minion rubber.
After riding trail bikes and with less travel in every situation over the last few years hopping onto a 170mm bike makes you feel a little over-biked in the first moments. But after a short familiarization, you relearn to use the advantages. A few rides in, my confidence has boosted to an all-time high. Jumps, drop-offs, sketchy features with tight landings have never been so fun!
