SRAM RED groupset 2x11 | GXP for Felgenbremse
The RED 11-speed group is to be understood as art fireworks. As top flight SRAM built everything as prior art just possible. High-quality materials such as titanium, carbon, stainless steel and plastics also arise along with the sophisticated design class performance and low weight.
SRAM RED Double Tap brake lever
New Bars & Accessories were developed primarily ergonomically. The handle body was designed slightly narrower and received simultaneously a flat hump on top. The brake handle is executed now longer the better to be accessible and to allow a higher braking translation. The grip width of brake and shift levers can now be set separately!
SRAM RED rear derailleur
The RED 11-speed rear derailleur has been left virtually untouched compared to its predecessor. In this artwork only small changes were needed to establish the compatibility with 11-speed cassette. With Aeroglide jockey wheels for quiet running of the chain and ceramic bearings for minimized friction losses!
short cage for cassettes with up to 28 teeth
WiFLi medium cage for cassettes to 32 teeth
SRAM RED derailleur
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 removes the need to readjust the derailleur as in other systems!
SRAM RED GXP crank
The SRAM RED 11-speed crank fulfilled everything you could want from a crank. Rigidity, excellent switching characteristics, low weight and compatibility with almost all bottom bracket standards. The integral design that unites crank and chainring spider in a component, it allows the material properties of carbon optimal use and to push the weight to a phenomenal level. The chainrings offer a high stiffness, which clearly favors the switching behavior. In addition, the gear design has been optimized for the Yaw front derailleur and its pivotal movement toward.
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 XG-1190 cassette
The quality cassettes are produced almost entirely from one piece of steel with SRAM and find their completion in the largest pinion that is made of aluminum. This elaborate production method elliminiert numerous problems of conventional cartridges and is also extremely easy. The special construction of the SRAM cassette prevents pitting conventional, single pinion completely, since the power is transmitted to the freewheel body considerably large area.
The quality of the cartridge is to prove their quality by a low noise while driving. The tooth shape of the cassette has been optimized and supplemented by so-called "stealth ring", which dampen the noise further.
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 RED chain
A drive on the level of RED Group requires a highly optimized chain. With hollow pins and chain links having omissions this necklace is easy and thanks to the material used high loads. SRAM optimizes the chain even at the level of plant lubrication.
SRAM RED brakes - mechanical Felgenbremse
The brakes follow the already known shape of SRAM, which was supplemented by the "Aero Link". This unassuming lever increases the braking force when the closing brake. This gimmick that allows the brake aufweißt a smaller, aerodynamic cross-section, as classical constructions. The brake pads that arise in cooperation with Swissstop offer the best braking performance in all weather conditions.
Total Weight: from 1707g (without bottom bracket and Anlötschelle)
Note: The total weight of the group differs depending on the configuration.
