When SRAM released their groundbreaking wireless eTap groupset in 2015, one of the first questions -- was inevitably, when will the tech appear on their more affordable Force groupset? And then, when the next generation RED eTap AXS groupset was launched at the beginning of 2019, inevitably one of the first questions was, seriously, when is it coming to Force?
Well the answer, is NOW!
More affordable wireless shifting, it’s finally happened and the big news is that functionally this shares exactly the same DNA as it’s more expensive bigger brother, Red. So, before we get onto what actually separates the two, let’s recap the key points of the new eTap AXS: As you can see SRAM, have kindly sent over a groupset on this stealthy new Orbea so that we can take you through it.
Still the biggest one: There are no wires, and no cables, it’s wireless. Shifters communicate via SRAM’s own protocol with the derailleurs. Both shifters and derailleurs also feature the same upgraded hardware and software as the new Red AXS, meaning that they react just as fast and move just as quickly. .
