SRAM’s New 22s Groups Go To 11

by editors on April 15, 2013


SRAM just rolled out their new Force 22 and Red 22 11-speed (including hydraulic and disc brakes) groups to a select group of cycling journalists recently and while we didn’t get an invite, Bike Radar was there to get all the details.

SRAM claim all the new 11-speed groups to be ‘trim-free’, meaning you can use the full width of the cassette on either chain ring without adjusting the front derailleur or getting chain rub on the derailleur cage. In all cassette options from 11-25 to 11-28, what’s new is the 16-tooth cog, which makes for single-tooth differences from the 11 up to the 17. An 11-32 WiFli option will also be available.

The most interesting thing for us is the disc brakes. Having not ridden them on the road yet, all we can say is that we certainly like like the direct braking control we have on our mountain bikes.
