Press Release

Today’s riders are more capable than ever. So we made a groupset that fits their needs. We focused on where road is going, not simply where it’s been.

You asked. We listened. eTap is now available for Force. SRAM Force eTap AXS offers the key features of RED eTap AXS—modern gearing, advanced chain management, and easy personalization—in a more affordable package.

Modern Gearing

Road bikes are faster and more capable than ever before, and riders are expanding what’s possible with drop bar bikes. X-Range offers wider range, more useful and smoother gear progression, as well as smarter shift settings—enabled by AXS.

Super Smooth

On tarmac or gravel, 1x or 2x, eTap AXS gives a quiet, secure, and smooth ride. Thanks to the ultra-lightweight Orbit fluid damper and a unique Flattop chain, you’ll ride more confidently and efficiently than ever—no matter the terrain.

AXS Enabled

Control. Personalize. Monitor. AXS—SRAM’s new bike component integration system—takes eTap wireless shifting to the next level. The SRAM AXS app allows riders to see battery status, change component behavior, personalize controls, get maintenance reminders, and update firmware.

Yours, now

SRAM Force eTap AXS is now available on a wide variety of bikes and for purchase at a bike shop near you today.

TECHNOLOGIES

AXS

AXS is SRAM’s new bike component integration system that connects electronic bicycle components and software. The SRAM AXS App allows riders to see battery status, change component behavior, personalize controls, get maintenance reminders, and update firmware.

Flattop

To enable X-Range gearing technology, we developed a narrower chain. The unique link shape of Flattop technology not only allowed for a wider gear range, but also results in quieter drivetrain operation and increased chain strength and durability.

DUB

The relationship between bottom bracket spindle and bearing is the core of DUB technology. It’s where stiffness meets durability. We took it a step beyond conventional thinking and made everything simpler—better integrating the relationship between chainring, crank, spindle, and bottom bracket. It’s this approach to developing a complete system that equals better drivetrain performance.

XDR

The XDR driver body is a universal mounting system for cassettes that incorporate cogs with fewer than 11 teeth. It allows for lighter and more versatile drivetrains without requiring new rear axle standards, cassette tools or hub redesigns. The XDR interface is 1.85mm longer than XD and is designed for road hub applications. XDR driver bodies are compatible with all XD cassettes when the cassette is installed with a 1.85mm spacer.

Orbit

Orbit technology is an innovative new form of derailleur motion control. It utilizes silicone fluid as part of an elegant and ultra-lightweight damper system. Compared to a standard friction clutch system, Orbit technology places no additional resistance on the rear derailleur’s spring when under slow or light movement. This means easier shifting and rear wheel removal. And while riding, the fluid damper reduces chain bounce. It’s rock-solid reliability for both 1x and 2x systems.

X-Range

Road bikes are faster and more capable than ever before, and riders are expanding what’s possible with drop bar bikes. X-Range is gearing for today’s road riding. We completely reimagined road gearing for wider range, more useful and smoother gear progression, as well as smarter shift settings—enabled by AXS. With X-Range, you’re always in the right gear.

DZero

Quarq’s next-generation DZero power meter platform is named for the DØ Experiment, one of science’s most accurate and innovative projects to detect subatomic particles moving at the speed of light. With a new measurement circuit, a revised strain gauge design, improved accuracy throughout the pedal stroke, and software advances, DZero represents the state of the art in power meter technology.
