Why We Like The Force 22 Rear Derailleur
SRAM now delivers 22 gears with its new Force groupset. It's called 'True 22,' as the 11-speed drivetrain allows you to utilize every one of these gears, in any combination, without adding any weight to the already outstanding Force drivetrain system. The Force 22 Rear Derailleur stands in as an integral component of the new groupset, calibrated for 11 speeds using the same innovative technologies that have made its Red group an industry leader when it comes to exact, predictable shifting under the world's most demanding riding conditions.
SRAM didn't design the Force 22 from scratch. To ensure precise shifting no matter the gear combination, it took the 1:1 Exact Actuation technology from its award-winning 10-speed Red groupset. This means that you'll pull the same length of cable in every shift, regardless of gear, so shifting stays super precise and adjustment free. More speeds mean smaller gaps between gears, too, so each shift is lightning fast.
Not content to update the shifting mechanism, SRAM also updated the pulleys and the materials used in the Force 22. The AeroGlide pulley system ensures super-smooth, quiet, and efficient pulley action, and a new elastomer coating reduces noise even further for a more pleasant riding experience. There's a new barrel adjuster, too, which lets you dial in micro-adjustments without the need for tools. As far as materials are concerned, the Force 22 is made from a combination of rugged aluminum, carbon fiber, and magnesium for the ultimate combination of stiffness, lightness, and durability.
