SRAM Saves Weight on Red and Force

CHICAGO, USA – At Sea Otter Classic, which took place last weekend, SRAM presented the WiFLi is the drive train technology on the Red-2012 and Force drive trains.
WiFLi delivers an expanded gear range with the world’s first 11-32 10-speed cassette for road, combined with a compact (50/34) front chainring. The rear derailleur lengthens its cage and gets a slight variation in geometry, and is known as a mid-cage RD, that can compensate for wide range cassettes. The system delivers a wider gear range than the standard triple chainring system and saves well over 250 grams.
SRAM will begin shipping the compact Exogram RED-2012 crankset, XG-1099 11 32 cassette, and RED- 2012 mid-cage RD in June. SRAM Force will add the mid-cage RD, also shipping in June. The compact cranks and 11-32 cassettes (PG-1070) are already available.
WiFLi stand for a wider range of gears for every climb and descent, faster shifting as two chainrings shift much faster and easier than three and lighter as it weights as much as 10% less than the most popular road triple group set.
