There is a level where your equipment matches your dedication...
It takes a degree of passion for the sport that can’t be faked to fully appreciate SRAM RED. It was created to blur the boundaries between machine and athlete. The SRAM RED rear derailleur was designed with our Exact Actuation™ technology for precise, efficient shifting. Carbon fiber, titanium, and ceramic bearings complete the spec. The result adds to its legacy as the heart of the purest groupset for the pursuit of cycling excellence.
Exact Actuation™ shifting provides fast and accurate shifts
More clearance with 28t cassettes thanks to a longer B-knuckle
Silent shifting with optimized AeroGlide™ pulleys, ceramic bearings
Spring-fixed barrel adjuster
Chain pulley cage adds precise chain management
Titanium pinch bolt keeps a low profile while minimizing weight
New tooth pulley design with a sound damping effect for a super efficient and silent ride experience. Bottom and top pulleys benefit from this feature.
When we launched our road technology from scratch we reapplied our MTB proven SRAM 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel : derailleur movement) for 10 speed rear shifting. EA helps to simplify/stabilize the uneasy act of balancing rear derailleur hanger design, tight cog spacing and exact cable tension. The result: the easiest index shifting system to set up and it stays that way.
