SRAM RED CHANGES EVERYTHING.
New SRAM RED represents the pinnacle of road racing technology and delivers countless performance advantages to the professional and enthusiast alike.
For 2012/13, the new RED continues in the SRAM tradition as the leader in light weight, flawless shifting, and ergonomic advantage with gorgeous aesthetic styling.
How did we improve on the world’s best mechanical gruppo? We started with everything we knew, and then designed a brand new drivetrain from scratch.
Each part was engineered with the twin goals of eliminating the superfluous while focusing on an overall synergy that translates into unmatched performance.
Elegant and simple, RED perfects the riding experience through genuine innovation.
SRAM RED changes everything.
Koo Groupset weight = 1884.8g
SRAM RED Crankset – 2012/13
Innovation often comes from places you‘d least expect.
In order to make a lighter crankset, we made it bigger. To add stiffness, we used less material.
The new SRAM RED Exogram Crankset is completely hollow all the way to the spider.
Its hidden bolt pattern makes better use of carbon fiber to further improve stiffness and shed weight.
The stunning X Glide R chainrings are optimized for use with the YAW Technology in the front derailleur, delivering seamless, flawless performance.
Exogram technology uses a large, hollow cross section all the way to the spider, minimizing weight while maximizing stiffness. Our stiffest crank ever
Hidden bolt pattern leverages the characteristics of carbon fiber while presenting a sleek appearance
Stiffer X Glide R chainrings feature thicker construction, advanced shift timing pins and ramps, which are optimized for shifting with the YAW Front Derailleur
Stunning two-tone finish
Koo weight = 604.2g (53/39t)
SRAM RED BB – 2012/13
Welcome our new Gutter Seal Technology! Gutter drastically improves sealing against the elements while reducing seal drag.
We’ve designed a fresh new cup forging for a new high-end look. A new standard in external bearing performance!
Gutter Seal Technology
Improved tool engagement
Sealed cartridge bearings
English or Italian threads
Ceramic bearings, Red ano finish.
Koo weight = 101.8g
SRAM RED DoubleTap® Controls – 2012/13
The new SRAM RED ErgoDynamic Shifters represent our most advanced thinking yet on perfecting the interface between rider and bike.
We‘ve scrutinized everything, including the transition between handlebar and hoods, the grip texture, finger wrap, and the separate interfaces with both the shifter and brake lever.
The result is an extremely comfortable, highly individual fit that makes the shifters feel like a natural extension of the rider.
ErgoFit textured body improves grip and finger wrap with reduced diameter, providing better control, and a better transition to the bar
Individual Reach Adjust of brake and shift lever, now easier to access and uses a standard hex key, puts the controls exactly where you want them
Larger carbon ErgoBlade lever improves shifting from the drops
DoubleTap® technology delivers both shifts from the single lever
ZeroLoss™ shifting, shifts engage immediately
New clamp allows better fit and adjust for modern carbon and ergo bars
Koo weight = 310.7g (inc. cables)
SRAM RED Rear Derailleur – 2012/13
If you want for the fastest, quietest shifting around, look no further.
The new SRAM RED Rear Derailleur has been designed to deliver the performance advantage you‘ve come to expect from SRAM.
The derailleur is designed with our Exact Actuation technology for precise, efficient shifting.
We‘ve paid rapt attention to the finer details, like adding a hollow titanium anchor bolt and even refining tooth geometry of the jockey wheel.
The result is that the chain runs through the new RED Rear Derailleur smoother and quieter than ever before.
Exact Actuation shifting provides fast, accurate shifts
More clearance with 28t cassettes thanks to longer B-knuckle
New silent shifting with optimized AeroGlide lower pulley, ceramic bearings
New spring-fixed barrel adjuster
New chain pulley cage adds precise chain management
Titanium pinch bolt keeps a low profile while minimizing weight
Koo weight = 145.3g
SRAM RED Front Derailleur – 2012/13
The new SRAM RED Front Derailleur changes everything.
Instead of simply moving back and forth, the derailleur cage actually rotates to maintain a consistent angular relationship with the chain.
We call it Yaw Technology, and it eliminates the need for shifter trim.
As a result, shifts feel more direct, more precise, and combined with the new RED crankset and chainrings, delivers an unmatched performance advantage in front shifting.
Yaw cage rotates in line with chain, improving the shifting speed and precision while eliminating the need for shifter trim
Slim spring design eliminates frame interference
Optimized for shifting with X GlideR Chainrings
Best combination of aluminum and steel for the strongest and most durable cage we’ve ever made
Precision install markings
Integrated chain spotter protects your frame without adding any extra clunk, and adjusts independently of the derailleur itself
Koo weight = 75.9g (braze on)
SRAM RED Brakes – 2012/13
Your brakes shouldn‘t slow you down until you squeeze the levers.
That‘s why the new SRAM RED Brakeset has been created with a host of wind-cheating features to make the brake body more aerodynamic, helping you keep your speed until the moment you‘re ready.
The new patented AeroLink arm reduces frontal area while improving braking performance and modulation.
The brake body has been sculpted to provide a sleek aerodynamic profile to the wind. Even the smallest details, like the barrel adjuster, point away from the wind.
And to finish off the package, SwissStop Flash Pro pads come standard with the brake. It‘s a better brake in every way.
AeroLink arm amplifies braking power while reducing frontal area
Aero design extends to the shape of the indexed four-position quick release, the bladed barrel adjuster, low-profile pinch bolts, and recessed spring tension adjusters
Wider clearance for modern wheelsets
Lighter, aero pad retainers carry SwissStop Flash Pro pads standard
Koo weight = 251.3g (pair)
SRAM XG 1090 Cassette
The new SRAM RED Powerdome X is the most advanced cassette ever made.
It‘s super light, deadly silent, and delivers an undeniable performance advantage.
The eight cogs in the middle are machined from a single block of high grade tool steel, increasing stiffness while weighing even less than a titanium cassette.
Between each cog in the block is a StealthRing elastomer to reduce vibration and noise.
Cutouts on the rear cog further reduce weight and add stiffness.
It‘s the final piece in the drivetrain puzzle, paired with the new SRAM RED Rear Derailleur, delivers ultra-fast, ultra-quiet shifts that will always put you in the right gear.
Hollow steel dome makes for the stiffest gear cluster ever at the lightest weight
Heat-treated, high-grade tool steel provide superlative durability and a beautiful finish
StealthRing elastomers and advanced tooth profiles eliminate vibration and noise for a smooth, silent ride
Aluminum cog: lighter, stiffer, stronger due to the choice of design, material and production process
Koo weight = 146.3g (11 -25t)
SRAM PC 1091R PowerChain™
The newest 1091R chain features more heavily chamfered outer plates for improved shifting and quieter running.
Other advancements include a new inner plate finish plus chrome hardened pin construction, both for longer chain life.
The HollowPin construction of SRAM’s 10 speed PowerChain™ provides smooth, precise shifting and weight savings without sacrificing strength.
Koo weight = 249.3 (114links and
