SRAM SRAM's new Apex 1 crankset completes its entry-level 1x groupset. An integrated four-arm asymmetric spider maximizes stiffness-to-weight, while its patented X-Sync chainrings keeps the chain on over rough terrain.
RED eTap HRD combines SRAM's new HydroHC brake platform with electronic shifting. SRAM RED eTap HRD combines the unconditional braking performance and control of hydraulic disc brakes with the adjustability of conventional rim brakes.
The new XX1 and X01 drivetrains now feature SRAM's Eagle Technology that aims to increase wear life, toughness, precision and smooth and silent operation. XX1 and X01 can now use the extra-wide-range 10- to 50-tooth 12-speed Eagle cassette.
Level is a new brake designed for the needs of modern cross-country and trail riders. Braking power and modulation are optimized by matching DirectLink lever design with authoritative two-piston calipers. The new Roam 60's careful combination of shape, width, design and materials yields a new carbon 27.5” wheelset. The lightweight, high-strength 30mm carbon rims increase control and confidence in any terrain.
FSA (Full Speed Ahead) FSA electrifies its lines with the introduction of the K-Force WE wireless road groupset. The K-Force WE is an elegantly designed high-tech electronic-drive system that makes use
of wireless communication between the shifters and the derailleurs. The K-Force WE shifters use ANT+ wireless technology, and the power of a lightweight coin-cell battery relays information to the front and rear derailleurs.
Derailleurs are independently powered by a seat-post battery, which offers the advantage of a larger battery for heavy shifting and, according to FSA, approximately 4,000 to 6,000 kilometres of ride per charge (depending on a rider's shifting habits).
Shifting is monitored and analyzed on an ongoing basis by the K-Force WE system, and through computer algorithms, it provides an estimate of battery charge remaining. Charge levels are communicated through four LEDs on the top of the front derailleur and can be fully charged through an interface on the rear derailleur in approximately an hour.
The K-Force WE rear derailleur is an 11-speed system with a 30T total capacity and maximum sprocket size of 28T. The front derailleur is a Ti body with stainless-steel hardware.
The K-Force shifters feature UD carbon levers, available in small and large. Other components in the K-Force WE group include a crankset with hollow carbon arms and a K-Force brake set, cassette and chain.
An Android app is available for customizing your shifting preferences.
Shimano Shimano's latest Dura-Ace R9100 is now available with a hydraulic disc-brake option. A new optional dual-sided power meter further adds to
Dura-Ace's integration, while riders can also take advantage of new e-tube wireless connectivity. Lighter Dura-Ace R9100 dual control levers deliver further refined shift performance with improved ergonomics.
Shimano's Synchro Shift is now available for Dura-Ace R9150/R9170 groupsets, allowing for sequential shifting. Shimano Synchronized Shift will be available for all previous 11-speed Di2 road-component groups with the use of new Di2 firmware.
The FC-R9100 Hollowtech II crankset's shaping improves upon Dura-Ace's iconic four-arm design, adding strength and rigidity while minimizing weight. Shimano's Rider Tuned gearing offers a number of chainring configurations, with a singular BCD for ease of use and versatility.
Shimano's new Metrea group offers stylish components built to cope with urban-riding realities, and a new 60° to 45° riding angle allows for responsive, nimble handling and a comfortable posture. Riders can choose a flat bar for greater urban versatility and compatibility with a wide range of bike frames. Two-way flat-bar Rapidfire Plus shift levers allow for rapid gear changes with consistent pedaling.
Complementary dual control levers for the ends of the H-type bar lend riders an ergonomic and aerodynamic riding position. Hydraulic brake levers deliver appropriately regulated power and performance.
Flat-mount calipers provide a clean appearance with stable, silent and smooth braking performance, and Ice Tech rotors allow for maximum heat dissipation.
A sleek anti-corroding two-piece crankset provides reliable drivetrain performance and its tooth profile allows for smooth and consistent pedaling. The rear derailleur introduces wide-range 11-speed gearing with efficient shifting steps on the cassette. Finally, Metrea's disc-brake-specific wheelset brings everything together for quick and stylish cruising.
Campagnolo Campagnolo has introduced the 11-speed Potenza group for 2017 that benefits from the technologies found in the Super Record group, while achieving a more affordable price.
The rear derailleur shares the same design as its Super Record cousin, and will be available in two versions – short-cage and long-cage options – to match the all-new 11-32 cassette.
The Potenza crankset is made with hollow-forged-aluminum crank arms to keep weight to a minimum while maintaining the same performance characteristics of its carbon-fibre counterparts.
The Potenza 11 Ergopower shifters maintain the ergonomics of the entire Campagnolo Revolution 11+ line, but the hood covers have been slightly altered to provide better grip and comfort.
Campagnolo has also created new brake levers for triathlon and time-trial bikes. Two versions include Record EPS in carbon fibre and Athena EPS in aluminum.
