More exciting news from SRAM today as they announced their first ever electronic groupset outside of the top-of-the-line SRAM RED® group – introducing SRAM Force® eTap® AXS™. SRAM Force® eTap® AXS™ comes loaded with many of the same features you get with SRAM RED® eTap® AXS™, but at a more accessible price. New Deep Range™ gearing, 1x and 2x setups, DUB™ bottom bracket, flat-top chain, customizability and compatibility with all other AXS™ products.



When it comes to gearing, riders have been asking us for more range and closer steps.
In order to deliver this, we had to reimagine the drivetrain with Deep Range™ gearing. The SRAM Force® crankset offers smaller chainrings with a consistent 13-tooth gap between both size variants, delivering more modern gearing as well as refined shifting performance.

• Deep Range™ gearing technology gives you more range and a smoother gear progression, so you’re always in the right gear
• Crisp and accurate front shifts
• DUB™ bottom bracket adds durability and simplicity
• Can be upgraded to a power meter


SRAM pioneered the 1x drivetrain for road. And even with recent advancements to 2x drivetrains, there are still disciplines where
a single-ring setup shines. Whether you are chasing a new PR on your triathlon bike, battling through the mud on the cyclocross course, or tearing around city corners in a criterium, you can now enjoy a better 1x experience for your pursuits.

• Single-ring drivetrain simplifies functionality and reduces weight
• Non-aero chainrings can be installed with a single tool, making gearing changes a breeze
• SRAM X-SYNC™ wide-tooth, narrow-tooth chainring technology provides maximum chain control
• DUB™ bottom bracket adds durability and simplicity
• Can be upgraded to a power meter


Why let your equipment constrain your ride? The SRAM Force® eTap® AXS™ front derailleur provides the simplicity of eTap® with a host of new advancements, enabled by AXS™. Enjoy the intuitive operation and precise, fast shifting. It’s a front derailleur with everything you need, and nothing you don’t.

    Looking for insight. Installed Force eTap AXS on a Mosaic Ti frame. Love it. Had some challenges getting the spacers correct for the DUB BB and Crank (there are conflicting PDFs) on spacing on the web. Getting chain rub on the front derailleur when in Large Ring and the two largest rear cassette’s. I’ve done everything I can think of.
    Clamp on front derailleur hanger is SRAM and says Wide Spacing. Is there a narrow one? Might that move the FD inboard enough to give the necessary clearance?
