SRAM just released their all-new 12-speed wireless electronic RED eTap AXS road groupset today, delivering the ability to mix and match with the new Eagle AXS group as well. That gives the new drop bar groupset more versatility than ever before. And a number of bike makers are standing in line to offer you the best bike builds possible, from classic road doubles, to 1x or 2x setups for gravel, plus aero 1x for the fastest TT bikes.
Here’s the complete list of bikes launching with the new SRAM AXS groups, with models from from BMC, Cannondale, Canyon, Cervélo, Orbea, Giant, Koga, Open, Parlee, Pinarello, Rose, Scott, Specialized, 3T & Trek!
SRAM Red eTap AXS 12-speed wireless road bikes
BMC’s premium $12,500 / 12,000€ Teammachine SLR01 Disc LTD is the kind of bike we expect to see the latest and greatest bike tech featured on.
They aren’t all going to be that expensive, but with a 2x road disc groupset retail price of $3,548 / 3,618€, new Red eTap AXS is going to be showing up on a lot of fancy carbon bikes.
The Koga Kimera Pro will be a nice option for riders looking for a super stealth bike with the new wireless 12-speed groupset.
From Pinarello, try the F10 Disk.
Or Rose’s relatively affordable Team GF Six Disc Red eTap AXS or their Xeon CW Disc Red eTap AXS either of which for 5,800€, or two hundred more for this X-Lite Six Disc Red eTap AXS.
Scott highlighted the aero Foil Disc as befitting a new wireless group, concealing most of the brake’s connections for a clean look.
Specialized had similar wireless thoughts with their spanking new S-Works Venge Disc, taking it a step further by tucking every vestige of hydraulic brake lines inside the handlebar, stem and frame.
And rounding out the alphabet of premium road bikes, the $12,500 aero Trek Madone SLR 9 Disc is another one to put a hurt on your wallet to get the latest drivetrain, or the slightly more affordable (haha) $12,000 lightweight Trek Émonda SLR 9 Disc.
SRAM Red eTap + Eagle AXS 12-speed wireless gravel bikes
For gravel we’re definitely thinking the big draw here is going to be the ability to set up a 1x drivetrain pairing Red AXS controls with a mechanical clutch-equipped Eagle AXS derailleur like this 3T Exploro.
But this Open U.P.P.E.R. shows that the new Red AXS front derailleur is also slimmed down for extra tire clearance with big 650B rubber and a wide ranging Red 2×12 setup, too.
Interestingly you can also now get a 3T Exploro LTD with a RED AXS eTap 2x build too.
SRAM Red eTap AXS 1x 12-speed wireless TT bikes
This Parlee TTiR shows the ideal setup for time-trialing…
The 1x aero direct mount chainring, power meter cranks & the wide-ranging Red 12 speed cassette will be hard to beat from an aero perspective.
The cockpit isn’t entirely free of wires and hoses to get hydraulic braking from those new Red levers, but the new neatly integrated eTap Blip Box can make for a slippery setup with plenty of remote blip shift points possible.
All of these bikes are said to be available to order from today from each of these manufacturers. Want to know more about the group itself, check back to our full detailed RED eTap AXS road group tech overview, and our introduction into the adaptable new AXS wireless control system as a whole.
