Tried and tested in the mountain bike sector for years, the 10-tooth sprocket is now also finding its way into racing bikes. This is made possible by the new SRAM XDR freewheel standard. The advantages are obvious: with the same bandwidth, the cassette can be made even lighter. In addition, weight can be saved on the crank, as smaller chainrings are necessary for the same maximum development as with an 11-tooth sprocket. So that the gear steps stay small without having to forego bandwidth, SRAM has upgraded the new Force cassette to 12-speed. The additional 12th pinion significantly expands the intended use of the cassette in combination with the eTap AXS 1-speed group. Compared to the previous version, the shift gates have been further optimized and matched to the electronic eTap AXS rear derailleur. The result is even faster and smoother gear changes. The opinions made of tool steel are connected to each other with the SRAM mini-cluster construction via pins. The cassette's largest pinion, made of aluminum, ensures a significant weight reduction.
