2012 SRAM Force Carbon Group
2012 SRAM Force moves to unidirectional (UD) carbon throughout the components which adds strength and provides a more high-end feel to the group. The aluminum parts of the group are now forged, providing more strength, lower weight, and a more robust finish. The brake levers are upgraded to unidirectional carbon, with the shift levers remaining magnesium.
While all the SRAM technologies including DoubleTap, ZeroLoss, and Exact Actuation remain unchanged, the brakes get a significant upgrade with a RED-styled skeletonized Dual Pivot design featuring spring tension adjustment and centering adjustment. SRAM Force brakes are lighter than last year's models but feature improved stopping power, and easier adjustability and set-up. The Force brakes are essentially same as Red brakes except Force forgoes the machined brake pad holders which adds a couple of extra grams.
Items Included: Force Carbon Crankset, FORCE Double Tap Levers, Bottom Bracket, SRAM OG-1070 Cassette, Front Derailleur, Rear Derailleur, Brake Calipers, SRAM 1090 Chain, and Cables.
