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.
Now refined for twenty-two speeds, the new SRAM RED 22 Rear Derailleur has been designed to deliver the performance advantage you have come to expect from SRAM. The derailleur is designed with our Exact Actuation™ technology for precise, efficient shifting. We have paid special attention to the finer details, like adding a hollow titanium anchor bolt and even refining tooth geometry of the jockey wheel. The result is that the chain runs through the new SRAM RED 22 Rear Derailleur smoother and quieter than ever before.
Exact Actuation™ shifting provides fast, and accurate True 22 shifts.
More clearance with 28t cassettes thanks to a longer B-knuckle.
New silent shifting with optimized Aeroglide Pulleys™, ceramic bearings.
New spring-fixed barrel adjuster.
New chain pulley cage adds precise chain management.
Titanium pinch bolt keeps a low profile while minimizing weight.

TECHNOLOGY HIGHLIGHT(S): AeroGlide Pulleys™, Exact Actuation™
New tooth pulley design with a sound damping effect for a super efficient and silent ride experience. Bottom and top pulleys benefit from this feature.
When we launched our road technology from scratch we reapplied our MTB proven SRAM 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel : derailleur movement) for 10 speed rear shifting. EA helps to simplify/stabilize the uneasy act of balancing rear derailleur hanger design, tight cog spacing and exact cable tension. The result: the easiest index shifting system to set up and it stays that way.
WiFLi™ = Wider - Faster - Lighter
SRAM's WiFLi™ Technology is based on the compact 2 x 10 - two front chainrings and 10 gears in the rear - design inherent in SRAM Apex and Rival, which delivers a wider range of gears than your standard triple, faster shifts through two chainrings and 10 gears, and with significant weight savings. It's the newest technology from the company that continues to innovate the cycling experience.
