Almost anything goes in gravel racing and riding. It’s a mixed-up challenge of speed, endurance and handling. This high-performance all-rounder does it all. It’s smooth, it’s efficient, and it’s your new best friend for pushing limits on roads, gravel and dirt.
From remote mountain passes to endless gravel rollers, smooth dirt to rutted backroads, this new all-rounder helps you conquer it all with speed and comfort. The Advanced-grade composite frame combines lightweight efficiency with smooth compliance—so you can hammer out long rides with more comfort and less fatigue. A full composite fork helps soak up bumps, while the D-Fuse seatpost and Contact SLR D-Fuse handlebar dampen shocks and vibrations before they reach your body. The frame is integrated for disc brakes and has added clearance for high-volume tires, up to 45c, giving you smooth confidence on rugged terrain. This model also features the new 12-speed SRAM Force eTap AXS groupset, delivering cutting-edge drivetrain technology with a broad range of gears, wireless electronic shifting performance, and the SRAM AXS app that allows you to view battery status and personalize controls.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
Versatile gravel geometry
All-new gravel-riding geometry features endurance positioning and shorter chainstays. The result is precise handling, agility and control in all situations, from out-of-the-saddle road climbs to fast and rugged dirt road descents.
An innovative new Contact SLR D-Fuse handlebar and D-Fuse seatpost work as a system to help absorb shock without sacrificing the stiffness needed for aggressive road performance. Added frame clearance for high-volume 45c tires help smooth out rough roads, gravel and dirt.
12-speed SRAM Force eTap AXS includes wireless electronic shifting, new derailleur technologies, and intuitive shifter/brake levers with a wide range of gears for conquering rough roads and dirt with confidence and control.
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are the highlights of today’s electronic shifting systems:
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servomotors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with precisely and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you’ll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
