Riders want more range and closer steps between gears — that is the driving design principle of the SRAM Force carbon crankset.
It offers smaller chainrings with a consistent 13-tooth gap between size variants, delivering smooth, accurate, and dependable shifting for the modern rider. This innovation is called X-Range and it improves cadence and efficiency while also delivering shifts that are crisp, clean and quick - always find the sweet spot.
The SRAM Force carbon crankset is utilizing unidirectional carbon in the crank arms matched to a forged alloy spider. As always for seamless, flawless performance and Yaw compatibility, pair this crank with X-Range direct mount chainrings.
Yaw - The front derailleur cage rotates to maintain a consistent angular relationship with the chain. Yaw technology eliminates the need for shifter trim. As a result, shifts feel more direct, more precise, and combined with the new Red crankset and chainrings, delivers an unmatched performance advantage in front shifting.
X-Range - Road bikes are faster and more capable than ever before, and riders are expanding what is possible with drop bar bikes. X-Range is gearing for today’s road riding. SRAM has completely re-imagined road gearing for wider range, more useful and smoother gear progression, as well as smarter shift settings—enabled by AXS. With X-Range, you are always in the right gear.
