SRAM Rival 22 - test your limits
Your needs aren't less demanding. They're different. The new SRAM Rival 22 group delivers tremendous performance for many bikes and disciplines - whether on asphalt or gravel roads, in cyclocross races or triathlons, in road races or riding through unknown terrain. Rival 22 offers the ergonomics, efficiency and technology for serious cyclists, for any challenge and to push the limits. The requirements of cyclists differ from those of professionals, but are no less important. They change and evolve with each ride according to your performance. It doesn't matter if you're into racing or adventure. So why settle for a groupset that gives you 75 percent if there’s one that meets your requirements 100 percent?
With DoubleTap you switch faster and easier. There is only one direction of movement. To switch up, just a short tap is enough. To shift to a lower gear, just keep pushing the lever.
This brake lever consists of three separate elements and will significantly improve your riding experience with SRAM DoubleTap levers. The brake lever is slightly longer than the previous DoubleTap levers and therefore easier to reach from the drops. The separate grip width adjustment on the brake and gear levers can be quickly and easily adjusted for each hand size. The upper link has a completely new design with a smaller diameter and is easier to control and grip thanks to its improved shape.
Grip width adjustment
The fit and ergonomics of the brake lever is a very personal matter. All riders have individual position preferences as well as unique hand sizes and finger lengths. The handle width adjustment makes it easy to adjust the lever - for maximum control with just one finger.
The front derailleur cage rotates and thus has a constant angular relationship with the chain. The Yaw technology enables a trim-free circuit. The shift transitions are more direct and precise and in combination with the new Red crank and Red chainrings the Yaw forms a perfect unit with the chain. The Yaw technology enables a trim-free circuit. The shift transitions are therefore more direct and precise and, in combination with the new RED crank and RED chainrings, the Yaw ensures unprecedented performance when shifting forward.
ZeroLoss simply means, well, zero loss. When you push on the lever, for an upshift or down shift, the cable is engaged instantly, with zero loss of movement. There is no middle-ground where you're waiting for the shift to come. Gear changes are instant and precise.
