Force 22. READY FOR YOUR BEST. However you define yourself as a rider, SRAM Force 22 is ready to help you achieve your personal best, offering no compromise of quality, function and features. SRAM has completely redesigned SRAM Force and loaded it with all of the key innovations of SRAM RED, with no apologies for its fleet looks, ergonomics, efficiency, and lightweight design. Apart from the complete overhaul, SRAM Force also provides you twenty-two usable gears, YAW™ shifting speed and precision that can only be matched by SRAM RED, and a new sleek finish. The understated SRAM Force group is for rational people with an irrational passion for performance. It is SRAM's most exciting introduction for 2013, and SRAM designed it to be everything any rider at any level would ever require, and it’s ready for your best.
The new Force 22 crankset delivers an upgrade in performance by utilizing unidirectional carbon in the crank arm matched to a forged alloy spider. And, like RED, the 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.
The X-GlideR Chainrings
are designed for an optimized shifting performance with the Yaw front derailleur. The stiffer rings (5mm 7075-T6 aluminum CNC-machined) feature upshift rivets with an advanced design adopted from SRAM XX. CNC machining allows for precision control of each tooth shape, ramp, and nearly every shifting feature of the chainring. Chainrings, chain, and front derailleur are designed as a single integrated system for optimized performance.
- 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.
The crank is only compatible with SRAM RED 22 Yaw™ and SRAM Force 22 Yaw™ Front Derailleur.
