This article first appeared on Cyclingnews . Richie Porte ( Trek-Segafredo ) began his 2019 season with a new team, a new bike and an unreleased groupset. SRAM's new 12-speed RED eTap AXS groupset was still unreleased at the race — where the Tasmanian finished second on general classification and won the final stage — but was being used by the entire Trek-Segafredo and Katusha-Alpecin squads, as well as Trek-Segafredo and CCC Team in the Santos Women's Tour Down Under. SRAM 12-speed RED eTap AXS HRD review Trek-Segafredo announce SRAM partnership The new groupset opens up new gearing combinations as the extra cog allows for a 10-tooth option on the cassette, as well as a larger bottom gear. Porte opted for the 50/37 chainring option combined with a 10-28t cassette, a similar combination to traditional racing gearing of 53/39x11-25. Trek-Segafredo is one of a number of teams in the WorldTour ...

Bike brands start to roll out Sram Red eTap AXS-equipped bikes
Sam Challis 6 Feb 2019 The Specialized Tarmac, Venge and the BMC Teammachine all get the 12-speed treatment and tasty paint schemes to match The 12-speed Sram eTap AXS groupset has now been officially released so, right on cue, the bike industry’s big names are presenting their eTap AXS-equipped models. Most brands offer Dura-Ace Di2 equivalents already so to distinguish the new options beyond the groupset, brands have devised eTap AXS-specific paint jobs that aim to complement the chrome-and-carbon looks of the groupset. BMC has chosen to match the black and carbon elements of the groupset by rolling out a stealthy, black-grey Teammachine SLR01 Disc while Specialized has taken a bolder approach, opting to accent the polished aluminium parts of eTap AXS with a shining silver scheme. It is a move that, in our opinion, suits the redesigned chainset of the groupset particularly well. Image 3 of 5 Image 3 ...

The first frameset from the brand was the gravel-focused Exploro , which addressed stiffness, weight, comfort and aerodynamics in a discipline where some aspects are overlooked. Next came the 1X-only, disc brake-only, road-focused 3T Strada , which caused controversy in professional cycling with a string of stories ...

SRAM Red eTap AXS first-ride review: More than just another sprocket
Without a doubt, SRAM’s new Red eTap AXS wireless road groupset will be talked about because of its move to a 12-speed cassette. Although the gearing philosophy plays a key role in the Chicago company’s flagship product, there are plenty of other notable changes, such as faster shifting, 1x or 2x drivetrain options, enhanced cross-compatibility … The post SRAM Red eTap AXS first-ride review: More than just another sprocket appeared first on CyclingTips .
SRAM Eagle AXS: Wireless shifting and a matching dropper seatpost
SRAM has set the Eagle (cable) free. Almost an entire year after it was first sighted in pro racing, SRAM is finally ready to tell (and sell!) all of its new wireless 12-speed, single-ring mountain bike drivetrain. The new Eagle AXS drivetrains have been announced alongside the previously sighted SRAM Red 12-speed road groupset, and … The post SRAM Eagle AXS: Wireless shifting and a matching dropper seatpost appeared first on CyclingTips .
RockShox Reverb AXS wireless dropper post first ride review
SRAM's all-new wireless Reverb AXS dropper post comes with a slight weight penalty over the mechanical equivalent and certainly isn't cheap at £700 / $800 / €800, but the ease of setup and, so far, the flawless function has absolutely won me over. SRAM X01 Eagle AXS wireless drivetrain review SRAM Red eTap AXS wireless drivetrain review You may well have seen certain bikes at various races or events during 2018 sporting the new Reverb AXS post, but that said, sightings were rare at best and nowhere near as common as that of the new Eagle AXS drivetrain. As it turns out, SRAM has actually been cooking up this wireless gem since as far back as 2016 and, as of right now, it’s officially available to the public. I flew to Tucson, Arizona for a few days in a bid to get to know the new Reverb AXS a little ...
SRAM 12-speed RED eTap AXS HRD review
SRAM's new wireless RED eTap AXS road groupset has 12 gears, approaches road gearing in a totally new way, is available in either 1x or 2x setups and features a clutch. It's set to cost £3,349 / $3,648 / €3,618 for the 2x HRD RED version we have tested over the last few months. In the world of bike tech ‘game-changing’ is a hyperbolic phrase that gets bandied left, right and centre. Small gains in aerodynamics here or weight loss from a bike’s chassis there are often breathlessly described as game-changing, when in fact they’re merely reasonable, expected gains brought about through refinement by clever sorts. Which means it could be a complete folly for us to describe SRAM’s new eTap AXS shifting system in such terms. Then again, might it just live up to the hype? SRAM competitor Campagnolo might well have got to 12-speed first, but with the ...
SRAM X01 Eagle AXS wireless drivetrain first ride review
SRAM's new wireless mountain bike drivetrain has 12 gears, uses two clutches, can be paired with the new Reverb AXS dropper post and will cost £1,900 / $1,900 / €2,000 for the X01 version. For those that have been following the cross-country World Cup or visited any kind of bike related website, then SRAM’s new electronic mountain bike drivetrain is no big secret. SRAM Reverb AXS wireless dropper post review SRAM Red eTap AXS HRD review We first saw it aboard Nino Schurter’s bike when the World Cup circus visited Stellenbosch, South Africa in early 2018, and although it’s been in the wild for some time now, details have remained rather thin on the ground. After five years in the making though, it’s now ready to be released to the public. So I disappeared off to the rock-riddled trails of Tucson, Arizona to find out more about SRAM’s new Eagle ...
In-depth review: Sram Red eTap AXS 12-speed hydraulic road disc groupset
Stu Bowers Wednesday, February 6, 2019 - 14:59 Sram Red eTap AXS is more refined than its predecessor and an improved user experience in almost every way. 4.5 / 5 £3,794 I am fortunate to be have been testing the new Sram Red eTap AXS 12-speed hydraulic road disc groupset for a few months already, well ahead of its official launch, giving me an opportunity to see where things have potentially improved over the first generation. The original eTap proved itself, beyond doubt, right up to the WorldTour level, and Sram would be completely justified in giving a two-finger salute to all those sceptics who were so quick to do-down wireless shifting, suggesting it had too many potential pitfalls to really be of benefit. I was eager to see if this new Red eTap AXS could truly build on the triumphs of its predecessor. Sram’s complete re-think on the available ...
Sram launches all new Red eTap AXS 12-speed
Stu Bowers Wednesday, February 6, 2019 - 17:40 Sram has overhauled its flagship Red eTap wireless shifting groupset, delivering more gears and a complete rethink on gearing It’s been over three years since Sram launched its original Red eTap wireless shifting, and in that time it’s proven, hands-down, its dependability. It has silenced all its skeptics by demonstrating it’s truly capable right up to World Tour level. Building off the back of that success comes the next generation as Sram launches a completely new 12-speed flagship offering, it calls: Red eTap AXS. More than just gaining an extra sprocket, the new groupset benefits from a host of new features, some more obvious than others, but collectively under the family name ‘AXS’ (pronounced Axis) Sram’s focus has been to completely re-evaluate gearing and component compatibility. The result, it says, is the most adaptable and versatile groupset ever. ‘In the time since ...
