The sport of mountain biking has its epicenters of excellence — places where the word ‘progression’ really means something. The product engineering of mountain biking also has its hotspots. And few have a more interesting history and legacy than Schweinfurt, Germany.
Located near-perfectly in the center of Germany, innovators from Schweinfurt are responsible for the first precision ball-bearing, the first ball-bearing hub, the first freewheel and, now, SRAM Eagle™, the SRAM 1x™ drivetrain that continues to redefine mountain bike drivetrain capability.
