The SRAM RED AXS crankset leverages a pivotal design innovation: smaller chainrings and a wider cassette range. In order to offer exceptional cadence and efficiency, the range has been moved from the front of the drivetrain to the back, creating a consistent 13-tooth gap across all variants of chainring duos. The crankset is designed specifically for electronic shifting and can be upgraded to a power meter.

The RED Crankset
The SRAM RED crankset leverages a pivotal design innovation: smaller chainrings and a wider cassette range. This leads to smoother and faster shifting up front and more useful gearing for today’s riders. X-Range gearing technology gives you more range and a smoother gear progression, so you’re always in the right gear. The unique chainring design results in a lighter and stiffer crankset, while the DUB bottom bracket (sold separately) adds durability, simplicity and broad compatibility. These new configurations improve cadence and efficiency while also delivering shifts that are crisp, clean and quick—every time.
