Wider gearing for Force eTAP AXS will be a welcomed option for many riders. It can be trudging through ruts and mud gravel cycling or the steep kicker near the summit of a long climb that push you way out of your comfort zone. Sometimes you want a lower gear. Because having more range can be the key to thriving versus suffering as the road points upward, SRAM Force eTap AXS now includes a 10-36t cassette and 43/30t chainring option.
The new SRAM Force eTap AXS 43/30t crank and matching wide front derailleur also offer increased tire clearance, opening the door to consistent and smooth shifting for the next evolution of drop bar bikes. Exploring new limits has never been easier.
An 11-36 Cassette with a 34T chainring up front could also be a very viable option for mountain bikers living in flatter regions that don’t really need that massive 50-tooth SRAM Eagle XX Cassette.
