Bike makers roll out flagship bikes with SRAM's latest electronic wireless 12-speed shifting

You’ve read all the exciting details about SRAM’s completely updated Red eTap AXS 12-speed groupset and its reconfigured gear ratios, and now you want to get your hands on it right? So here’s a list of several road bike brands that will be offering existing models equipped with the new groupset following the launch - we’ll update this list as more new bikes are released in the coming months.

Trek

Trek has two complete bikes with the new groupset, but it’s also offering the Madone SLR, Emonda SLR, Domane SLR and Speed Concept through its Project One customisation platform.

Trek Madone SLR 9 Disc eTap — £11,050

The speediest bike in Trek's range, the Madone also has the neat trick of employing the IsoSpeed decoupler from the Domane to smooth out beaten up roads.

Trek Emonda SLR 9 Disc eTap — £9,300

This is basically the same bike that Richie Porte used to win a stage of the Tour Down Under at the beginning of 2019. Not a bad start to his season and a good start too for the new groupset.

Cannondale​

Cannondale SystemSix Hi-Mod RED eTap AXS — £8,499.99

Here's Cannondale all-new SystemSix aero disc-equipped race bike. What a looker with this champagne paint finish! Rolling on Cannondale’s very own HollowGram KNOT wheels with a SRAM XDR driver, and combining a 48/35t crankset with a 10-28t cassette.

Orbea

The Basque company has two AXS-equipped bikes in its range, the Orca M11eTeam-D and Orca Aero M11eTeam-D.

Orbea Orca M11eTeam-D — £6,599

2020 Orbea Orca M11eTEAM_D

Orbea’s all-round Orca, the lightest bike it currently offers, will be equipped with the new Red eTap AXS groupset comprising the 48/35t chainset with integrated power meter and the 10-28t cassette.

Orca Aero M11eLTD-D — £7,499

The Orca Aero was a hugely impressive bike when we tested it last year and it gets the latest SRAM groupset, combining a 48/35t chainset with 10-28t cassette and rolling on DT Swiss DT ARC 1400 DICUT wheels with Hutchinson Fusion 5 25mm tyres.

3T

The Italian company is adding three bike complete bikes to its 2019 range, with its Strada road bike and Exploro aero gravel bike getting the new Red eTap AXS treatment.

3T Strada Team eTap — £8,900

Strada TEAM RED eTAP side_02

The most radical and divisive new bike launched in as long as I can remember, this is a bike that will surely benefit from the wider range and closer ratios delivered by the new SRAM eTap Red AXS groupset. This is a bike I would be interested in riding to really see how the new groupset performs in a 1x configuration.

3T Strada Due Team Stealth — £8,900

3T Exploro LTD eTap 2x — £8,990

Exploro LTD Etap 2x side view_02

The aero gravel bike designed to meet the demands of the fastest gravel riders, interestingly 3T has chosen to spec the bike with a 2x Red eTap AXS groupset and not produced a mullet bike combining an Eagle AXS rear mech and cassette.

Scott

Scott Foil Ultimate Disc — £8,999

Scott's go-faster flagship gets Red AXS and Zipp wheels.

Canyon

There’s a healthy range of bikes from Canyon with the new groupset, including the race-ready Ultimate and Aeroad as well as the comfort-focused Endurace.

Canyon Ultimate CF Evo 10.0 LTD — £9,099

BMC

BMC Timemachine 01 Road One 2020 — £10,999

2020 BMC TimeMachine 01 Road One

The latest incarnation of BMC's air-slicing superbike gets the AXS treatment and Enve's SES 5.6 Disc wheels for a stunning package with an equally stunning price tage.

BMC URS One — £8,999

BMC URS One

Its Micro Travel Technology seatstays give BMC's flagship gravel bike 10mm of bump absorption out back and it's propelled by a hybrid drivetrain that's mostly Red AXS, but uses SRAM's Eagle AXS cassette and rear derailleur from the mountain bike component range to give a wide gear range with single-chainring simplicity. With WTB 42mm tyres, anything that defeats this bad boy is going to need a mountain bike.

Wilier

Wilier Cento10Pro — ~£9,000

Cento10PRO_IRIDE_GREY_ambient

To celebrate the launch of SRAM’s latest groupset, Italian company Wilier has unveiled a special new paint job for its range-topping Cento10Pro. According to the press release, the “frame's unique paintwork shimmers with reflections and colours when viewed from different angles and viewpoints.” Wilier is charging an extra $500 over standard colours though but does include the Alabarda one-piece handlebar in the same colour.

Mason

Mason Cycles Definition Red AXS 2x — £5,995

UK brand Mason Cycles has just sent us photos of its aluminium Definition built up with the new SRAM Red eTap AXS groupset.

Specialized

Specialized S-Works Tarmac Disc - SRAM eTap — £9,500

SW Tarmac eTap

Specialized is immediately offering its Tarmac SL6 Disc - which we reviewed last year and found to offer scintillating performance - with the new 12-speed Red eTap AXS groupset. Specialized will pair the 48/35t chainset with the widest range 10-33t cassette, with the integrated power meter and it’s rolling on Roval CLX 50 Disc wheels with Turbo Cotton tyres.

Specialized S-Works Venge Disc - SRAM eTap — £9,479

SW Venge eTap

If you want pure speed, you want the Venge Disc, though you do pay handsomely for it because that’s one hefty price. It features the same 48/35t chainset with an integrated power meter and wide-range 10-33t cassette as the Tarmac and to eke out more speed, it’s spinning along on Roval CLX 64 wheels with CeramicSpeed bearings.
