The new SRAM Rival 22 groupset delivers immense performance across a broad variety of bikes and disciplines. Paved or not. Cyclocross or triathlon. Road racing or unchartered journeys. Rival 22 provides the ergonomics, efficiency and technology for finely tuned cyclists to meet each challenge and expand their limits.
Dedicated cyclists’ demands are different – not less than – the pro’s. Their demands change and evolve with their riding and performance, whether they’re race ready or adventure ready. So why settle for a group that’s simply ratcheted-down to 75 percent of what the pros ride? Rival 22 delivers 100 percent of what cyclists demand.
The Rival 22 DoubleTap mechnical shifters are modeled after best-in-class SRAM RED 22 shifters. Equipped with aluminium brake levers and shift paddles they use RED 22 internals for best shifting performance. Hence these shifters feature DoubleTap, ZeroLoss and individual ReachAdjust for both brakelevers and shift paddles. Adopting the same Design from RED 22, which is called ErgoFit they provide best ergonomics. Textured hood covers will improve grip and finger wrap. Additionally the front control offers Yaw in combination with a Yaw compatible front derailleur. Instead of multiple shifts using trim, with confusing microshifts Yaw allows rotating of the front derailleur cage to maintain a consistent angular relationship with the chain.
Built around SRAM's Double Tap technology, Rival 22 controls offer up- and downshifting in one motion. With Zero Loss shifting front gears are engaged immediately. The independent ReachAdjust features on the brake and shift levers are easier to access with an allen key to quickly adjust for every hand size. Larger ErgoBlade levers improve shifting from the drops. Finally thank to ErgoFit, the shape of the lever bodies has been completely redesigned with a smaller diameter and higher top shape to increase the rider’s control and a better transition to the bar.
Technical advice: Please use SRAM Rival 22 road control levers with SRAM 11-speed rear derailleurs only. For best shifting performance please use the SRAM Rival 22 front control lever with a SRAM 2-speed YAW front derailleurs. SRAM road control levers are not compatible with rear derailleurs of other manufacturers.
