Why We Like The SRAM Red AXS Power Meter Kit
The Red AXS Power Meter Kit allows you to convert your SRAM Red or SRAM Force eTap AXS cranks into an accurate, lightweight power meter. If you're simply trying to replace the chainring on one of your existing AXS power meter cranks, this kit is also what you need, as the Quarq DZero powermeter is machined right into the chainrings, which is how SRAM is able to make the system so light.
Quarq has been helping cyclists get the most out of their training for over 12 years and with power reading within +/- 1.5% accuracy, it's easy to see why. An accurate power meter allows you to take the guesswork out of training, and build your power systematically over time so you can go faster. It also lets you repeat training efforts more precisely, and means the data you track is better validated. The power meter is AXS enabled, which lets you easily monitor data and take care of firmware updates using the AXS app.
The direct mount chainrings are machined from a single block of lightweight aluminum making them as stiff as possible for faster, crisper, and more consistent shifting. The rings are available in 46/33t, 48/35t, and 50/37t options where you will notice two things: consistent 13-tooth jumps between the small and big rings, and smaller overall tooth options.
As opposed to the 16-tooth jumps of compact (50/34t) and mid-compact (52/36t), or even the 14-tooth jump with the stalwart standard (53/39t), a 13-tooth jump offers smoother and quicker front shifting with fewer compensating shifts needed in the rear after making the shift. This all happens thanks to the wider cassette range offered by the SRAM's new 12-speed cassettes and its 10-tooth starting cog. SRAM calls it X-Range gearing technology, we simply call it amazing. It not only allows for more useful gearing options and a smoother progression that improves cadence and efficiency, but the shifts are always crisp, clean, and quick.
Please note that the Red AXS Power Meter Kit is only compatible with the new 8-bolt direct mount SRAM Red and SRAM Force eTap AXS cranks. It is not reverse compatible with prior generations of the 8-bolt direct mount cranks.
