SRAM launches RED eTap AXS 36T max rear derailleur

SRAM has launched the RED eTap AXS 36T max rear derailleur.

“Whether you’re riding the toughest grades you can find or just keeping your legs fresh for the final climb on a long day, lower gears will let you thrive,” said SRAM. “The SRAM RED eTap AXS 36T Max rear derailleur expands the possibilities of your SRAM RED groupset.

“Originally introduced for the Force eTap AXS group, now a SRAM RED-equipped bike can be built with a sub-1:1 gear ratio. 20% grades and tough terrain don’t stand a chance.”

The SRAM RED eTap AXS 36T Max rear derailleur works with the XG-1270 10-36T cassette and cassette sizes down to 10-28T. The Orbit chain management, X-SYNC pulleys and ceramic bearings will ensure quiet, efficiency and durability over the long miles, SRAM said.

SRAM has also announced that starting in February, Force cassettes will change to nickel-chrome finish.

– Available in 10-28T, 10-33T, 10-36T (10-26T discontinued)
