When SRAM’s Red groupset was released in a 22-speed version, it was only a matter of time before that technology started to trickle down to the more cost conscious offerings. And we’re happy to report that the SRAM Force 22 Groupset has the same crisp shifting and sublime ergonomics that make Red so drool-worthy, without the top-of-the-line price tag.
The big story here is SRAM’s “True 22” drivetrain system, which was based around the idea that one should be able to use every gear in their drivetrain. The front derailleur is a key component in achieving this, as it’s been graced with Yaw technology, which allows it to pivot as it shifts, which moves the cage out of the chain’s path when the drivetrain is cross chained. The rear derailleur has a redesigned B-knuckle, which adds clearance for 28t cassettes. As ever, both are controlled by SRAM’s double tap shifting, which has a light shifting feel and precise gear changes.
The crankset retains a similar form to the 10-speed version, but the chainrings have been enhanced for delay-free gear changes, even under power. It’s a similar story when considering the cassette. Beyond adding another gear, the tooth profiles and gear spread have been carefully considered for lightning-fast shifts. The carbon fiber crank arms are highly efficient, and turn a super-stiff 24mm aluminum spindle. The brakes remain unchanged, and still produce gobs of clamping force thanks to the dual-pivot design. This kit includes an English threaded bottom bracket.
The SRAM Force 22 Groupset is available in three crank lengths, from 170mm, to 175mm, with either a compact 50/34, or standard 53/39 chainring configuration, and either an 11-25, or 11-28 cassette.

What is included with this groupset?
This Groupset will fit my Trek Madone 5.5?
Hi Bernardo! Everything will be compatible except for the bottom bracket(which will be a Trek proprietary thing).
Do you know when it's going to be available?
Could you guys sell me this force groupset with a sram red crankset?
would it works with and specialized allez 2014?
is the rear derailleur a medium cage?
The SRAM Force 22 rear derailleur is a short cage in this Groupset. If you want to swap it for a medium cage contact me directly and I can set it up for you.

I have a 10 speed sram quarq powermeter. Will it work with this group?
is there a groupset for force (or red) that has 52/36 rings and 11/32 cassette? Preferably for pf30.
is there a group kit for either sram red or force that has 52/36 chainrings and 11/32 cassette? Preferably for PF30 too.
Does this kit come with the SRAM Force brake kit (front & Rear), and will it fit a BB90 Trek?
This groupset comes complete with front and rear brakes. For BB90, you will use the GXP version of the crankset but will need a BB90 bottom bracket. Unfortunately we don't carry any BB90 bottom brackets.
Is this the 2014 or 2015 Force Groupset? I hear that there were a lot of changes from 2014 to 2015 because of how much they upgraded the rival groupset. Any information on this?
This particular groupset was manufactured in 2014 with the intention of being sold in 2015. This is the most current iteration of the Sram force groupset. Sram (along with other manufacturers) disdain using a "model year" format because it creates a culture of assumed obsolescence. This is a fantastic shifting groupset that is dependable and extremely lightweight.
I have the Sram BB30 bearings, my question is "Are these cranks compatible with those or do I need extra spacers? Also do you have a Clamp on Front Derailleur instead of braze on. I bought a 2014 Specialized Allez E5 Smartweld frameset and my old Sram RIval chainset won't fit properly hence looking to upgrade to Force. Thanks
Thanks for the question. We can swap parts out here so I would be happy to help you out and make that swap. Give me a shout at the number below and I can make that change as we enter the order. There should be no increase in price.

Does this come in clamp on or braze on FD?
Braze-on! Here's a link to the individual part on SRAM's site for additional details:
Is this offered with a BB30 option? Thanks.
Here's the link to SRAM's site highlighting the individual component of the group set:
***Integrated Carbon-Spider BB30 Design!!
I'm still confused about this - how can GXP have integrated BB30 design? Aren't the two incompatible? Any help appreciated.
Sorry for the confusion regarding the bottom bracket that is offered in this groupset. We currently only have this groupset with the GXP bottom bracket. I hope this helps! Feel free to contact our bike experts via live chat or by calling us at 1-888-276-7130.
Check SRAM site, looks like it is available from them w/ BB30 ( check specs ) :
Can someone at CC confirm pricing and availability please?
