When we re-introduced SRAM RED in 2012 there was simply nothing more we could add to make it better. SRAM RED was all new, redesigned throughout, with innovations we’ve spent the past year touting and our athletes proving. It was loaded with features and benefits that matched the needs of professionals: fast, light, aerodynamic, ergonomic, near-silent, and, of course, trim-less, with ground breaking Yaw™ technology. Adding two more gears to that combination was arguably the only improvement required. The added benefit is that now, without adding weight, we maintain a system that shifts incredibly fast upfront, and with the best and smoothest gear transitions in back. And, for the first time available anywhere, the system gives you twenty-two gears. No compromise and no trim, what we’re calling True 22, in any gear combination. Welcome to SRAM RED 22.
Welcome our new Gutter Seal Technology! Gutter drastically improves sealing against the elements while reducing seal drag. We’ve designed a fresh new cup forging for a new high-end look. A new standard in external bearing performance!

GXP’s Gutter Seal design cuts friction and weight—improving both feel and performance.
