Innovation often comes from places you would least expect. In order to make a lighter crankset, SRAM made it bigger. To add stiffness they used less material and the new SRAM RED 22 Crankset is completely hollow all the way to the spider. Its hidden bolt pattern makes better use of carbon fiber to further improve stiffness and shed weight. The stunning X Glide R chainrings are optimized for use with the Yaw Technology in the front derailleur, delivering seamless, flawless performance. Features Exogram technology that uses a large hollow cross section all the way to the spider, hidden bolt pattern, and stiff X Glide R chainrings.
SRAM Black Box Ceramic GXP Bottom Bracket cups. Speed-sapping friction? The Red Crankset virtually eliminates it with new hybrid ceramic bearings housed within the GXP BB's case. Ceramic bearings ride in a stainless steel race, and are lighter, stiffer, and longer-lasting than normal bearings.
The SRAM RED 22 11-speed Double Tap Shifters continue SRAM's philosophy of perfecting the interface between rider and bike. SRAM has scrutinized everything, including the transition between handlebar and hoods, the grip texture, finger wrap, and the separate interfaces with both the shifter and brake lever. The textured body improves grip and finger wrap with reduced diameter, while the handy reach adjustment allows you to customize your cockpit and longer lever blades improve shifting while in the drops. The result is an extremely comfortable, highly individual fit that makes the shifters feel like a natural extension of the rider.
Now refined for twenty-two speeds, the new SRAM RED 22 Rear Derailleur has been designed to deliver the performance advantage you have come to expect from SRAM. The derailleur is designed with Exact Actuation technology for precise, efficient shifting. SRAM paid special attention to the finer details, like adding a hollow titanium anchor bolt and even refining tooth geometry of the jockey wheel. The derailleur features Aeroglide Pulleys with ceramic bearings, spring-fixed barrel adjuster and titanium hardware with a carbon cage and inner links. The result is that the chain runs through the new SRAM RED 22 Rear Derailleur smoother and quieter than ever before.
The SRAM RED 22 Yaw Front Derailleur offers every gear combination with no chain rub. Instead of simply moving back and forth, the derailleur cage actually rotates to maintain a consistent angular relationship with the chain. SRAM calls this technology Yaw, and it eliminates the need for shifter trim. Shifts feel more direct, more precise, and combined with the new SRAM RED 22 crankset and chainrings, delivers an unmatched performance advantage in front shifting. The derailleur includes an integrated chain spotter to protect your frame.
Your brakes shouldn't slow you down until you squeeze the levers. That's why the SRAM RED Brakeset has been created with a host of wind-cheating features to make the brake body more aerodynamic, helping you keep your speed until the moment you're ready. The new patented AeroLink arm reduces frontal area while improving braking performance and modulation. The brake body has been sculpted to provide a sleek aerodynamic profile to the wind. Even the smallest details, like the barrel adjuster, point away from the wind. And to finish off the package, SwissStop Flash Pro pads come standard with the brake. It's a better brake in every way
The SRAM XG-1190 11-Speed Cassette is constructed from a hollow steel dome which makes for the stiffest gear cluster ever at the lightest weight. The heat-treated, high-grade tool steel provide superlative durability and a beautiful finish, while the StealthRing elastomers and advanced tooth profiles eliminate vibration and noise for a smooth, silent ride. Available in three gear ranges to suit all you're riding needs.
The SRAM RED 22 11-speed chain features heavily chamfered outer plates for improved shifting and quieter running. Other advancements include a new inner plate finish plus chrome hardened pin construction, both for longer chain life. The HollowPin construction provides smooth, precise shifting and weight savings without sacrificing strength. PowerLock connecting link provides tool-less attachment for easy installation.
