This morning, to coincide with our Verdugo Mountains story, SRAM dropped their new wider Force AXS eTap kit and an announcement that has piqued our ears over here: Force, Rival, and Apex HRD dropper levers. Check out all the info below…
Force XG-1270 cassette $185
The SRAM Force XG-1270 10-36t cassette is optimized for the
precise shifting of eTap AXS and features our X-Range gearing technology. Smooth, quick shifting from 10t on up.
Force eTap AXS rear derailleur $490
Whether you ride 2x or 1x, tarmac or gravel, the new SRAM Force eTap AXS 36t max rear derailleur is made to take you further. Its additional low range cassette compatibility is complemented by Orbit damper technology for quiet, secure chain management over rough roads. It also capitalizes on large X-SYNC bearing-equipped pulleys for outstanding durability and efficiency.
Force 43/30t wide crankset $420
Explore the most challenging routes on the newest crop of versatile and fun drop bar bikes with the SRAM Force 43/30t wide crankset. Shifting is smooth, accurate, and dependable using our proven X-Range gearing based around a tight 13t difference between the small and big chainrings. The wider stance of the chainrings expands 2x drivetrain bike capabilities by providing clearance for fatter tires.
Force eTap AXS wide front derailleur $350
Designed specifically for wide spaced cranksets with 43/30t chainrings, the SRAM Force eTap AXS wide front derailleur provides consistent, smooth shifting performance for drivetrains with lower gearing. Its wider position on the bike also accommodates fatter tires for venturing far beyond the well beaten path.
