SRAM DERAILLEURS - REAR
SRAM Rival Rear Derailleur
- Item: SRM0250 Actual Weight:"Actual Weight" means we weighed this item ourselves. 186 g
The knee-knocking shift quality of DoubleTap levers carries straight through from Red into Rival. The stout 2-spring construction with Exact Actuation technology of the Red and Force rear derailleurs is replicated in every detail in Rival. You'll feel the same quick, crisp, positive shifting you get with Red and Force. In fact, there are only two differences of note between Force and Rival -- Rival has stainless steel hardware instead of the Ti you'll find in Force. And the finish of this second-generation Rival rear derailleur is black throughout, including its fully-aluminum cage for the jockey wheels.
At 188g the Rival rear derailleur comes in at a mere 14g heavier than the Force, with a cost savings of over 25%. If you embrace technology, but prefer to keep a death grip on your wallet, this is another example of why Rival is tailor made for you.
The SRAM Rival Rear Derailleur is available with two cage length options -- Medium and Short. The Medium has a maximum 37t chain wrap capacity and can handle up to a 32t cog. The Short cage version has a 33t chain wrap capacity and can handle a 28t cog.
