SRAM to reveal new groupsets on Monday +Video
Component maker confirms that 11-spd & hydraulic brakes coming (very) soon
US component brand SRAM has confirmed that they will release details of its new road groupsets this coming Monday, 15 April.
SRAM released a video on YouTube a few days ago, called SRAM 22, showing a new 11-speed cassette. It featured the logos of both SRAM Red and SRAM Force, the company’s two highest level road groups.
That video was uploaded to YouTube on 1 April leading some people to assume it was a joke, but it wasn’t; SRAM 22 is definitely happening.
SRAM have previously confirmed that they’re working on hydraulic brakes for road bikes and we can confirm that hydraulic braking will certainly feature in next week’s announcements.
But that’s yer lot for now, we’re afraid. Standby for all the details on road.cc next Monday. It should be a very important announcement with some big pointers to the way road bike tech will be going over the next few years.
