The all-new SRAM RED® chain was redeveloped from the ground up. The unique link shape allows the chain to be narrower and lighter while increasing strength and providing more space between the outer plates of the chain and the cogs on either side. Result: a quieter chain with faster, more precise shifts.
- Flattop technology enables a narrower chain with quieter operation and increased strength and durability
- Hard Chrome plated inner link plates and rollers for reduced wear and prolonged life.
- HollowPin construction for increased strength and efficiency
- Requires new Flattop Powerlock
SRAM X-SYNC™ 1x chainrings provide the highest level of performance and durability. The SRAM X-SYNC™ tall square teeth edges engage the chain earlier than traditional triangle shaped teeth. The sharp and narrow tooth profile, as well as rounded chamfer edges, help manage a deflected chain. To provide the best possible performance in muddy conditions, the X-SYNC™ chainrings have been designed with mud-clearing recesses for the inner chain links and rollers. Engineered in Germany, X-SYNC™ rings are an integral part of the SRAM 1x™ drivetrain. Accept no imitation.
To enable X-Range™ gearing technology, we developed a narrower chain. The unique link shape of Flattop™ technology not only allowed for a wider gear range, but also results in quieter drivetrain operation and increased chain strength and durability.
Road bikes are faster and more capable than ever before, and riders are expanding what’s possible with drop bar bikes. X-Range™ is gearing for today’s road riding. We completely reimagined road gearing for wider range, more useful and smoother gear progression, as well as smarter shift settings—enabled by AXS™. With X-Range™, you’re always in the right gear.
SRAM chain engineers developed PowerLock® as a tool free, sure, and consistent way to connect our chains. While PowerLock® does not require special tools for install, the especially tight tolerances of 10-, 11- and 12-speed drivetrains mandate that each PowerLock® is good for a one-time application only.
