2012 SRAM Red Released … Almost

2012 SRAM Red Released … Almost

I just got the press release of the 2012 SRAM Red and I have to say that she’s quite the sexy group. And she’s light, too. Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Expected arrival is March 9, 2012
  • Not exactly CX-compatible
  • To run new Red 2012 you must include : Front Derailleur, XGlide R Cranks, and Shifters
  • Due to the innovative YAW no trim technology, the Front Derailleur, Shifters and Crankset were designed as a precision shifting system and should be installed and utilized as a SRAM RED 2012 system.
  • SRAM does not recommend mixing SRAM RED 2012 and SRAM RED 2011 Front Derailleur, Shifters and Crankset components. They will not be compatible.
  • SRAM RED 2012 Front Derailleur, Shifters and Crankset are not backward compatible with current SRAM RED 2011 components or other SRAM Road Groups (Force, Rival, or Apex).
