SRAM Force 22: READY FOR YOUR BEST

However you define yourself as a rider, SRAM Force 22 is ready to help you achieve your
personal best, offering no compromise of quality, function and features. We have
completely redesigned SRAM Force and loaded it with all of the key innovations of
SRAM RED, with no apologies for its fleet looks, ergonomics, efficiency, and lightweight
design.
Apart from the complete overhaul, SRAM Force also provides you twenty-two usable
gears, Yaw™ shifting speed and precision that can only be matched by SRAM RED,
and a new sleek finish. The understated SRAM Force gruppo is for rational people with
an irrational passion for performance. It is our most exciting introduction for 2013, and
we designed it to be everything any rider at any level would ever require, and it’s ready
for your best.

The new SRAM Force 22 ErgoDynamic™ Shift/Brake levers were modeled after the best in class comfort
of SRAM RED, and represents our most advanced thinking yet on perfecting the interface between
rider and bike. Everything received the same detail.
> ErgoFit textured body with reduced diameter: improve grip and finger wrap and provide better control.
> Individual Reach Adjust™ of brake and shift lever
> Larger carbon ErgoBlade lever improves shifting from the drops
> New clamp allows better fit and adjustment for modern carbon and ergo bars

 

 

Adopting all the technologies that provide the fastest, quietest shifting available, the new SRAM Force
22 Rear Derailleur has been designed with our Exact Actuation™ technology for precise, efficient shifting
throughout the extended gear range.
> Exact Actuation™ shifting provides fast, accurate shifts
> More clearance with 28t cassettes thanks to a longer B-knuckle
> New silent shifting with optimized Aeroglide Pulleys™
> New chain pulley cage adds precise chain management

 

 

It’s the derailleur that changed everything, now with SRAM Force 22, giving riders the freedom to shift
with incredible speed, with no trim and no chain rasp. Instead of multiple shifts using trim, the SRAM
Force 22 Yaw™ Front Derailleur actually rotates to maintain a consistent angular relationship with the
chain.
> Yaw™ cage rotates in line with chain: shifting speed and precision improvement and no trim
> TRUE 22 – twenty-two usable gears in all gear combinations with no rasp or rub
> Durable, light, fast, precise and optimized to work with X Glide R™ chainrings
> Comes with Chain Spotter

 

 

The new SRAM Force 22 crankset delivers an upgrade in performance by utilizing unidirectional carbon
in the crank arm matched to a forged alloy spider. And, like SRAM RED, the hidden bolt pattern makes
better use of carbon fiber to further improve stiffness and shed weight.
> X Glide R™ chainrings: advanced shifting technology
> Hidden bolt for increased strength and stiffness
> New 165mm arm length option

 

 

The SRAM Force Brakeset was designed with light weight, performance, and streamlined aesthetics
as our guiding principles. Featuring Dual Pivot performance and a proprietary pad compound, the
SRAM Force Brakeset delivers high power with low weight. Intelligent engineering combines Cold
Forged arms, stainless steel main pivot bolts, and a powerful return spring for positive engagement and
release.
> Dual Pivot design increases braking power and enhances progressive feel.
> Cold-Forged Arms, Stainless Steel Pivot Bolt
> Skeletonized Dual Pivot Design with Convex Washers

 

 

The SRAM PG-1170 Cassette’s semi-spidered design maintains smooth and positive shifting performance
with a matched cassette/chain combination that runs near silent and maintains great mud
clearing capabilities. Pedaling and shifting transitions across the cassette will be made even smoother
with the addition of the long desired 16 tooth cog.
> Cassette design for high shifting performance with a quieter chain/cassette combination
> Semi-spidered design: light, strong, efficient

 

 

The new narrower SRAM PC-1170 chain features more heavily chamfered outer plates for improved
shifting and quieter running. The chrome hardened pin construction provides longer chain life.
> HollowPin construction: strong, precise and light weight
> PowerLock (silver) connecting link
> Narrower profile for 11-speed performance
> True 22 – twenty-two usable gears with no rasp or rub!
