SRAM Force groupset 22 2x11 hydraulic disc brake for GXP
The Force 22 group is the small top group in SRAM range. Apart from a few details, this group has all the features of the top group RED. SRAM substantiated this by Force and RED Group are brought with the new 2 x 11-way system at the same time on the market! With the 11-speed stepped cartridge are now 22 courses available, which can be run thanks to the Yaw front derailleur all with no restrictions! The new, finer gradation of the cartridge allows to maintain optimal cadence precise and longer.
The Force 22 group is available with mechanical rim brakes, hydraulic rim brakes and hydraulic disc brakes. Here the hydraulic disc brake is available!
SRAM Force 22 Double Tap brake lever - Hydraulic
These levers offer not only the crisp shift feel and light weight of the mechanical lever Force, but also the advantages of a hydraulically operated brake system. Whether hydraulic rim or disk brakes, which are Force 22 brake lever fits both systems! The venting of the system is extremely simple, the corresponding account is located at the highest point of the lever under the grip rubber. It just needs a Torx screw removed and the Avid Universal Bleedingkit are recognized.
The grip width of brake and gear levers can be adjusted separately.
SRAM Force 22 derailleur
The derailleur was only carefully optimized to keep the very good, crisp switching behavior possible. New are mainly the Aeroglide Pulleys, intended to promote a smoother running of the chain.
short cage for cassettes with up to 28 teeth
WiFLi medium cage for cassettes to 32 teeth
SRAM Force front derailleur 22
The "Yaw" -Umwerfer only introduced to all the Red 2012 Group. Thanks to a refined mechanism of not only the chain cage is moved in parallel but also about the vertical axle during switching operations - turned - or the seat tube of the frame. This rotation compensates for the skew of the chain depending switched chainring combination. This eliminates the readjustment of the derailleur as in other systems!
SRAM Force 22 Crank
The crank was significantly revised. The system of carbon crank arms, a forged aluminum spider with highly optimized chainrings and BB30 shaft made of aluminum or steel shaft GXP offer superior power transmission. The shift aids the chainrings are matched to the Yaw front derailleur to ensure fast and smooth gearshifts on the chainrings.
SRAM Bottom Brackets
High quality bearings are available in SRAM even in the standard version. With the option of hybrid ceramic bearings the durability and low rolling resistance can be improved.
SRAM PG-1170 cassette
11 finely graded gear in which switching aids are incorporated with high precision. This tray has gears can change unexpectedly quickly and cleanly. The fine grading allows to keep the cadence constant for longer and thus save power or to maintain the optimum training zone.
The 11-speed Road cassette from SRAM are only compatible with Shimano 11-speed freewheels! Appropriate wheels and conversion kits for older wheels and hubs are available from many producing!
SRAM PC-1170 chain
The new 11-speed compatible chain was also revised in details.
* A new material for inner plates to reduce wear.
* A modified process for riveting increases the strength of this connection,
so at least 2500N necessary are to remove the rivets
* The outer plates are nickel plated to increase corrosion protection
SRAM Force 22 brakes - hydraulic disc brake
Disc brakes offer numerous advantages, and so are hardly leave sinking in MTB sector. The advantages are in racing bikes not as concise, fall thanks to ever more powerful material but increasingly significant. The powerful and precise braking in all weather conditions exceed rim brakes by far! In addition, the brake is separated as a heat source of the often sensitive tires. Especially in extreme situations, this can bring the decisive advantage!
With a disc brake system also eliminates the braking surface on the rim. This promises not only optical advantages but makes it possible to make the wheels easier, without fear of loss of stability. The strengthening of the rim in the area of the braking surface may be omitted!
The brake system works with DOT 5.1 brake fluid. This medium is strictly normalized, providing a highly reliable operation even at high, caused by the brake temperatures.
The brake calipers are available in two mounting options (post mount and flatmount). Please review before buying to which receiving your frame / fork is fitted.
Total weight: from 2140 g
Delivery: SRAM Force 22 disc set hydraulically, without brake disc and adapter!
Note: The total weight of the group differs depending on the configuration.
