For users of Sram’s GX Eagle groupset looking to dip their toe in the waters of electronic shifting, the AXS upgrade kit could well be the answer to your prayers! Combine the brand’s dependable-workhorse groupset, with the precision shifting of its AXS range, and take your off-road cycling to the next level.
When Two Become One: Launched in 2016, GX Eagle has long been touted as SRAM’s reliable mid-tier groupset, capable of handling the toughest days in the mountains. AXS is the brand’s system for integrating electronic bike components and software, providing fast, smooth, and responsive shifting at the click of a button. Combine these two systems and you have a recipe for drivetrain simplicity. Even when shifting underload you shouldn’t face any challenges.
What Do You Get: The upgrade kit is intended to be an entry point for electronic shifting, without the need to revamp your whole groupset. The kit provided is designed to work with any of SRAM’s Eagle ecosystem. The set up is simple. Replace the parts of your existing setup for those provided in the AXS upgrade kit, tune the shifting via the app, and you’re ready to ride. With the removal of the wires from your drivetrain, you’ll have the added benefit of a cleaner and neater set of handlebars.
Via the accompanying app, you have access to a multitude of features you never knew you needed. From a basic standpoint, you can view the battery life, receive maintenance reminders, and update the firmware. But you can also personalise things like shift timing, change component behaviour, and see which gears you’re using.
Overall, if you are looking to experience smooth and trouble-free electronic shifting and you already have the dependable GX Eagle drivetrain, then the AXS upgrade kit is a great-value option. It won’t be long before you wonder how you ever got by without electronic shifting!

Never go back
Once you try this, you'll never want to go back to cables again. Simple to install, looks slick and performs beautifully. Lots of people seem to not get on with the shifter or it takes ages to get used to because of the muscle memory of many years using normal shifters - I didn't experience that at all! I've been using Shimano exclusively for over 20 years, so I set up the levers to perform the same as Shimano for up and down shifts, which took seconds on the App (which is also excellent BTW). It took me one ride to get used to the new shifter, it's just brilliant, consistent and clean... plus it makes this awesome robotic noise when you shift up! The only negative (and these aren't really issues!) is the absolutely tiny weight penalty and making sure you charge the batteries. I have the Reverb AXS as well so if all else fails I can just swap over the batteries. I'd highly recommend getting this over a top end group set, you won't regret it. Postage and service from PBK was great too!
