<p><span style="font-weight: 400">With SRAM X01 Eagle AXS and </span><a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/shimano-xtr-m9100-everything-you-need-to-know/"><span style="font-weight: 400">Shimano XTR M9100</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400"> being the hottest mountain bike groupsets at the top-end of the market, how could we not do a side-by-side weight comparison?</span></p>
<p>We put the two groupsets head-to-head to see which came out lightest, and the result may surprise you.</p>

<h2><span style="font-weight: 400">SRAM X01 Eagle AXS vs Shimano XTR M9100: weight</span></h2>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">When you’re spending this much on a groupset, you’re looking for real performance gains, and a big factor of that is weight savings. So, we weighed the individual components from each of the groupsets to see if SRAM or Shimano would come out on top.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Of course, it’s impossible to do a like-for-like comparison of the two groupsets, because they’re so inherently different. The SRAM X01 Eagle AXS comes with a dropper post and lever, but no brakes, for example.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">So we’ve conducted a side-by-side comparison of the cross-over components that feature in both groupsets — it’d be rude not to.</span></p>

<h3><span style="font-weight: 400">SRAM X01 Eagle AXS vs Shimano XTR M9100 overall</span></h3>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">As we said before, this isn’t the weight of the overall groupset, just the components we had that feature in both. It does give you an idea of how they compare.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The SRAM X01 Eagle AXS groupset (derailleur, crankset, bottom bracket, shifter, cassette and chain) totalled 1,642g, while the Shimano XTR M9100 groupset with the same components weighed only 2g more at 1,644g.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">A wireless groupset weighing only 2g less than a cable-actuated one is not what we expected. However, when you study the numbers for each component, there are some pretty standout differences that fall in favour for either brand.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">For example, the Shimano rear derailleur weighed 144g less than the SRAM, but that is to be expected when you consider that the latter is also carrying the weight of a removable battery.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">At the other end of the spectrum, the Shimano shifter weighed a whopping 104g more than the SRAM. Again that’s not out of the ordinary when you look at the difference in the hardware.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The fact that both groupsets pretty much weigh the same just goes to show that wireless shifting saves on cable weight, but comes with the penalty of bringing a battery along for the ride.</span></p>
