On the fast track with SRAM!
Shortly after the market launch of the electronic and wireless RED® eTap AXS™ 12-speed road shifting system in February 2019, the US American manufacturer brings the almost revolutionary AXS™ shifting technology to your road bike at FORCE® level.
The FORCE® eTap AXS™ groupset features all top technologies of the higher quality RED® group to offer the same extraordinary shifting performance and the same possibilities for customisation.
Thanks to the X-Range™ technology and no less than 12 cogs on the rear wheel, the FORCE® eTap AXS™ not only impresses with smoother shifting, but also with an improved gear ratio that helps combine small gear steps with a wide range of gears in a clever way.
As all other SRAM AXS™ shifting systems, the FORCE® eTap AXS™ is customised via the AXS™ app. Here, SRAM offers the possibility to choose for example between a sequential and a compensating shifting mode as well as to determine the number of shifted sprockets in the Multishift mode. Moreover the electronic integration platform allows you to monitor the battery status, adjust the controllers, receive maintenance reminders and update the firmware.
Exploring new limits has never been easier than with the AXS™ groupsets by SRAM!

• Completely wireless, electronic road bike shifting system
• For 2x12 speed configuration
• For rim brakes
• All electronic components in one package (read what’s in the box below)
• Part of SRAM’s AXS™ integration platform
• X-Range™ technology
• Orbit™ technology

Brake/shift levers:

Electronic shifting, wireless and with maximum precision, in combination with classic rim brakes. Both integrated into the SRAM FORCE® eTap AXS™ shift/brake levers. Your control unit that wirelessly connects you with your road bike.
As in the elite class of motor sport, you can change gears quickly and at the touch of a button. Thanks to the intuitive eTap® shift logic, both shift paddles control the rear derailleur. The right lever changes up at the back, the left lever changes down. To control the front derailleur, you can apply both levers at the same time. Of course, you can additionally adjust shifting behaviour and assignments to suit your personal preferences by using the AXS™ app.

• For SRAM eTap AXS™ 1x12 and 2x12 systems
• For mechanical road bike rim brakes
• Compatible with SRAM AXS™ for easy customisation
• Easy and intuitive eTap® shift logic
• Large and ergonomic controllers
• Individual lever reach adjustment with Reach Adjust™
• Run up to two Blips™ per side
• Material: carbon/composite
• Battery type: CR 2032 (round cell battery)
• Weight: approx. 311 g

Rear derailleur

The FORCE® eTap AXS™ rear derailleur is the masterpiece of your AXS™ groupset. Without this interactive piece of engineering art there’s... no way forward! This is where everything comes together. It is through the rear derailleur, all components of the AXS™ system can communicate with each other. Yet, it is not only responsible for the interaction between the single AXS™ components, but it also communicates with the SRAM AXS™ app and many compatible bike computers via Bluetooth Smart and ANT+.
A single rear derailleur covers all gearing combinations (including singlespeed and doublespeed) and features a large number of high-end technologies for a more silent and powerful ride.
A particular highlight is the SRAM Orbit™ technology. A rear derailleur movement control mechanism that uses a special silicone fluid as part of the damping system. Compared to standard roller bearing clutch mechanisms, this technology creates no additional resistance at the spring of the rear derailleur. This allows for smoother and faster shifting. Besides, the fluid damper reliably maintains chain tension while riding for maximum chain control even in rough terrain.

• Compatible with SRAM eTap AXS™ 12 speed
• Suitable for all gearing combinations
• Compatible with SRAM AXS™ for easy customisation
• Improved motor and signal path for faster shifting
• Orbit™ chain management for a smooth and safe ride
• Larger X-SYNC™ pulleys for high durability and maximum performance
• Compatible with current eTap® batteries
• Material: aluminium/carbon
• Max. sprocket size: 33 teeth
• Capacity: 36 teeth
• Battery type: eTap® battery
• Weight: approx. 322 g (incl. battery)

Front derailleur

The SRAM FORCE® eTap AXS™ front derailleur makes no compromises and perfectly blends in with the elegant and clean look of the wireless groupset. The proven SRAM YAW™ technology eliminates the need for shifter trim, while the cage profile has been optimized for use with FORCE® eTap AXS™ chainrings to guarantee fast and accurate gear shifts and provide more tyre clearance.

• Compatible with SRAM eTap AXS™ 12 speed
• Compatible with SRAM AXS™ for easy customisation
• Elegant and aerodynamic design for more tyre clearance
• YAW™ technology to eliminate the need for shifter trim
• For braze-on socket
• For a large chainring with 46-50 teeth, capacity: 13 teeth
• For max. tyre width: 42 mm (measured width of 700 C tyres)
• Compatible with current eTap® batteries
• Material: steel/composite
• Battery type: eTap® battery
• Weight: approx. 180 g (incl. battery)

Life and Range

Battery charge indicator on the component itself:
• Green LED: 100% - 25%
• Red LED: 25% - 15%
• Flashing red light: 15%-0%

Battery life with battery fully charged:
• SRAM FORCE® eTap AXS™ shift/brake lever (CR 2032 battery): approx. 2 years
• SRAM FORCE® eTap AXS™ rear and front derailleur: approx. 60 hrs of actual riding time

The same power unit is interchangeable between front and rear derailleurs. Given the increased number of gear shifts at the rear, the battery runs low earlier when used in a rear derailleur. By replacing the batteries, you can increase the range or compensate for an empty battery on the go.

In the box:
• SRAM FORCE® eTap AXS™ shift/brake levers for left and right side incl. batteries (CR 2032)
• 1x SRAM FORCE® eTap AXS™ rear derailleur
• 1x SRAM FORCE® eTap AXS™ front derailleur
• 2x eTap® power units
• 1x charger
• 1x quick start guide

Other compatible SRAM FORCE® eTap AXS™ components:
• SRAM FORCE® eTap AXS™ DUB™ crankset 1x12 (product code: 2285353)
• SRAM FORCE® XG-1270 cassette (product code: 2285349)

AXS™ (pronounced “access”) is an electronic integration platform that connects electric bike components with software by SRAM. AXS™ components communicate wirelessly using 128-bit encryption. Every time several components of a groupset are connected with each other, e.g. shifter, front derailleur and rear derailleur, a unique code is generated to eliminate the risk of interference with signals of other riders’ systems. The SRAM AXS™ App allows you to check the status of the battery, change component behavior, customize controls, get maintenance reminders and update the firmware. The app is available for free download in the App Store for iPhone (iOS) and in the Google Play Store for Android. Note: All SRAM RED® eTap 11-speed components are NOT compatible with AXS™ components and the AXS™ software!


The Orbit™ technology is a kind of rear derailleur movement control. It uses a special silicone fluid as part of an extremely lightweight damping system. Compared to standard roller bearing clutch mechanisms, this technology is speed sensitive so that slow or slight movements don’t activate the clutch mechanism. This allows for smooth shifting and easy rear wheel removal. While riding, the fluid damper reliably keeps the chain under control. With high reliability and chain tension, for double and single speed systems.


Road bikes and road cyclists are faster and more capable than ever. The X-Range™ technology offers a wider and better range of gears. Thus it provides smoother, more useful gear progression. Smart shift settings (enabled by AXS™) transfer the simplicity of singlespeed systems to double speed drivetrains. Thus, you’ll always find the right gear. Faster – more efficient – more comfortable!
