What Chainring Offset for SRAM Eagle T-Type Cranksets and Power Meters?

SRAM XX SL, XX and X0 Eagle Transmission (T-Type) Cranksets are available in different Q-Factors (168 mm and 174 mm). The chainrings that fit these cranks come in both 0 mm and 3 mm offsets in order to fit both Boost (52 mm chainline) and Wide (55 mm chainline) bikes. Therefore, you need to be sure you order the correct chainring offset based on your cranks’ Q-Factor as well as your chainline. So we put together the following information to make it as easy as possible!

 

How to Determine Your Chainring Offset

For 168 mm Q-Factor cranks:

  • If your bike has a 52 mm chainline, you need a 3 mm offset chainring
  • If your bike has a 55 mm chainline, you need a 0 mm offset chainring

For 174 mm (Wide) Q-Factor cranks:

  • If your bike has a 52 mm chainline, unfortunately this crankset will not work with your bike and you would need a 168 mm version
  • If your bike has a 55 mm chainline, you need a 3 mm offset chainring

 

How to Determine Your Q-Factor

If you have the SRAM X0 Eagle Transmission Crankset or the SRAM XX Eagle Transmission Crankset (Non-SL Version), your Q-Factor is 174 mm.

If you have the SRAM XX Eagle SL Transmission Crankset, your Q-Factor could either be 168 mm or 174 mm. If you are not sure what it is, we suggest sending us your SRAM part number (serial number) and we would be happy to let you know what your Q-Factor is. You can find the part number on the inside of the drive side crank arm.

    i have a sram XXL crankset with a power meter, the serial number is 07T04630128, what chain ring would I need to 0 or 33m offset, thank you

      Hi,

      This serial number corresponds to the XX1 Eagle crankset in a 168 Q Factor. Please see the below chart for your frameset’s application:

      For 168 mm Q-Factor cranks:

      If your bike has a 52 mm chainline, you need a 3 mm offset chainring
      If your bike has a 55 mm chainline, you need a 0 mm offset chainring
      For 174 mm (Wide) Q-Factor cranks:

      If your bike has a 52 mm chainline, unfortunately this crankset will not work with your bike and you would need a 168 mm version
      If your bike has a 55 mm chainline, you need a 3 mm offset chainring

      Thanks,

    My SRAM XXSL Transmission crankset serial #23T33398833 FC-XX-SLP-D1 and the Allied BC40 has a 52mm chainline. Will this work? Thanks for the info. Good stuff!

    1. Dave Harris

      Hi and thanks for the question.

      Your crankset is the 174 Q Factor version. According to SRAM, even with the 3 mm thread-on chainring, this will only be compatible with a 55 mm chainline frameset.
      Please see below:
      For 168 mm Q-Factor cranks:

      If your bike has a 52 mm chainline, you need a 3 mm offset chainring
      If your bike has a 55 mm chainline, you need a 0 mm offset chainring
      For 174 mm (Wide) Q-Factor cranks:

      If your bike has a 52 mm chainline, unfortunately this crankset will not work with your bike and you would need a 168 mm version
      If your bike has a 55 mm chainline, you need a 3 mm offset chainring

      Thanks,

        If the bike frame is spec’d w SRAM Eagle Transmission then doesn’t that mean it has to have a 55mm chainline?

        1. Dave Harris

          Hi,

          Yes. Very likely 55 mm frameset if coming stock with Transmission. You will need to contact the frame manufacturer to find out their chainline specification for your particular bike.

          Thanks,

    My SRAM XX SL Transmission crankset serial# 23T33398833 and the frame that I ordered has a 52mm chainline. Will this work? Thanks for all the information on your website. Good stuff!

    Hi. My xx-sl crank serial number is: 34T34539337

    What is the q-factor and chainring offset I will need assuming a 55mm chainline?

    1. Dave Harris

      Hi and thanks for the question.

      Your XX SL crankset is the 168 Q Factor version. Using a 55mm offset frame, you will need the 0 degree offset chainring.

      Thanks,

      Hi,

      I am sorry. SRAM isn’t getting that serial number to appear in their database. Would you be able to double check that number?

      Thanks,

      Thanks,

    I have a SRAM XX SL crankset on my 2024 Trek Supercaliber 9.9 AXS XX bike. I’m interested in a power meter spider for this crank. Based on the serial number below, what offset should I purchase? Thank you!

    1. Dave Harris

      Hi and thanks for the question,

      Your XX SL crankset is the 174 Q Factor version. The 3 mm offset chainring is applicable for a 55 mm chainline frameset. Please see below:
      For 174 mm (Wide) Q-Factor cranks:

      If your bike has a 52 mm chainline, unfortunately this crankset will not work with your bike and you would need a 168 mm version
      If your bike has a 55 mm chainline, you need a 3 mm offset chainring

      Thanks,

      Hi and thanks for your question.

      Your crankset is the 168 Q Factor. Please see the below chart for chainring offset compatibility:

      For 168 mm Q-Factor cranks:

      If your bike has a 52 mm chainline, you need a 3 mm offset chainring
      If your bike has a 55 mm chainline, you need a 0 mm offset chainring

      Thanks,

    Hi, my serial number on my XX SL crankset is 17T32711457, FC-XX-SL-D, 170mm crank arm. What’s the Q factor and how do I figure out the chainline? The bike is a 2023 Pivot Mach4 SL.

    Thank you!

    1. Dave Harris

      Hi! I just followed up with you in the email you sent in and we’ll have some nice options for you once I hear back from SRAM regarding your XX SL crankset’s Q Factor.

      Thanks,

    Hi. Wondering if you could help me work out which version I have please, my serial number is 09T31719068, FC-XX-SLP-D1. Thank you.

    1. Dave Harris

      Hi and thanks for the question. Your crankset is the 174 mm Q Factor. So the below chart will apply:

      For 168 mm Q-Factor cranks:

      If your bike has a 52 mm chainline, you need a 3 mm offset chainring
      If your bike has a 55 mm chainline, you need a 0 mm offset chainring
      For 174 mm (Wide) Q-Factor cranks:

      If your bike has a 52 mm chainline, unfortunately this crankset will not work with your bike and you would need a 168 mm version
      If your bike has a 55 mm chainline, you need a 3 mm offset chainring

      Thanks,

  12. Todd S

    Hi. I struggling to identify the Q-factor on my T-type XX SL powermeter crankset. Nothing comes up on the Sram serial number lookup. Can you help me identify what it is so I can purchase the correct chainring/offset.
