First Look at the new SRAM Axs Red

New SRAM Axs Red: Initial Review

Greetings from Cooper at Cadence Cyclery in Encinitas! Today, I'm thrilled to delve into the exciting features of the new SRAM Red AXS group set. Strap in, because this upgrade is packed with game-changing improvements.

New Hoods and Brakes 

First off, let's talk about the revamped hood and lever design. SRAM has reimagined the shape, enhancing both comfort and aesthetics. But it doesn't stop there. The caliper has undergone a significant transformation, shedding excess weight while increasing clearance between the pads and rotor. This tweak not only reduces that annoying hydraulic group set ticking but also improves braking efficiency. With a redesigned piston layout, braking effort is minimized, making it a breeze to stop—whether you're on the hoods or in the drops.

Moving on to the derailleur, while its appearance may resemble the previous generation, don't be fooled. SRAM has managed to trim down its weight while boosting shift performance. Plus, they've added pulley teeth to the jockey wheels, further refining the shifting experience. But the real magic happens when it syncs up with the redesigned front derailleur.

Now, let's talk cassettes. The new Red cassette remains largely similar to its predecessor but now offers a 36-tooth option, aligning it more closely with the Force line.

As for the crank, it's not just a pretty face. SRAM has fine-tuned the power meter design, resulting in a sleeker appearance. And with increased options in crank length, you can tailor your setup to your preferences. Tying it all together is the brand-new SRAM Red chain. Featuring completely hollow links, it offers a lightweight yet durable solution for your drivetrain needs. And here's the kicker—it's fully compatible with both the previous generation Red and Force components. Want to mix and match? Go for it. SRAM's got you covered. But wait, there's more!

The perfect companion for your SRAM group set. So, there you have it—the latest and greatest from SRAM. Here at Cadence Cyclery, we've got a selection of these group sets in stock.
