Now refined for twenty-two speeds , the new SRAM RED 22 Rear Derailleur has been designed to deliver the performance advantage you have come to expect from SRAM. The derailleur is designed with our Exact Actuation™ technology for precise, efficient shifting. We have paid special attention to the finer details, like adding a hollow titanium anchor bolt and even refining tooth geometry of the
jockey wheel. The result is that the chain runs through the new SRAM RED 22 Rear Derailleur smoother and quieter than ever before.
“SRAM call this ‘True 22’ because you can cross chain with their system – you can run the chain on the larger chainring and the largest sprocket, and the smaller chainring and the smallest sprocket...whereas Shimano and Campagnolo tell you specifically not to do this.” - Road CC
Exact Actuation™ shifting provides fast, and accurate True 22 shifts.
More clearance with 28t cassettes thanks to a longer B-knuckle.
New silent shifting with optimized Aeroglide Pulleys™, ceramic bearings.
New spring-fixed barrel adjuster.
New chain pulley cage adds precise chain management.
Titanium pinch bolt keeps a low profile while minimizing weight.
Material: Carbon Cages, Carbon Inner Links, Aero Designed Titanium Hardware
Compatibility: SRAM RED 22 & Force 22 Rear Shift/Brake levers
AeroGlide Pulleys: New tooth pulley design with a sound damping effect for a super efficient and silent ride experience. Bottom and top pulleys benefit from this feature..
Exact Actuation: When we launched our road technology from scratch we reapplied our MTB proven SRAM 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel : derailleur movement) for 10 speed rear shifting. EA helps to simplify/stabilize the uneasy act of balancing rear derailleur hanger design, tight cog spacing and exact cable tension. The result: the easiest index shifting system to set up and it stays that way.
WiFLi™: SRAM's WiFLi™ Technology is based on the compact 2 x 10 - two front chainrings and 10 gears in the rear - design inherent in SRAM Apex and Rival, which delivers a wider range of gears than your standard triple, faster shifts through two chainrings and 10 gears, and with significant weight savings. It's the newest technology from the company that continues to innovate the cycling experience.
WiFLi™ is all you need to know…
Wider – a wider range of gears for every climb and any descent
Faster - two chainrings shift (and set-up) much faster and more easily than three
Lighter – as much as 274g (9.8%) less than the most popular road triple
Much improved Q-factor - improved heel clearance
Easier set up - two is easier than three
Compatible with SRAM Red, SRAM Force, SRAM Rival and SRAM Apex
