Rivaling all other mid-level front derailleurs.

It was only a matter of time before SRAM's fantastic, pro-level Red 22 and Force 22 drivetrains trickled down into the technological pool that would become the sport-level Rival 22 groupset. The SRAM Rival 22 Front Derailleur captures many of the same design features that make those more expensive derailleurs so great, only without breaking the bank.

The most critical element to understand about SRAM's new 22-speed front derailleurs is what they call their Yaw feature. SRAM's Yaw means that the derailleur adjusts its yaw relative to the chain line. In other words, the derailleur cage rotates to align perfectly with the chain in any given position. This not only improves shifting accuracy and speed, it eliminates the need to "trim" the derailleur to prevent the maddening chain rub that can occur toward the back of the derailleur's cage, regardless of what chainring/cog combination you select — a welcome improvement over virtually all previous drivetrains on the market.

All of SRAM's 22-speed front derailleurs, including this Rival version, also feature the revolutionary integrated Chain Spotter, which protects against chain drop, against scratches, and against frustration. The Chain Spotter can be removed, or adjusted independently of the derailleur's position, so it's configurable to any frameset. The derailleur's steel cage is stiff, tough, and has precision alignment markings in the appropriate areas to help with proper installation.

The SRAM Rival 22 Front Derailleur's cage has a silver finish, while its hardware and the Chain Spotter are black. It is designed exclusively for use with SRAM 22-speed X-Glide R chainrings and SRAM 22-speed shifters and drivetrain components. It comes only in a braze-on version, with clamp adapters available separately.

Easy to install

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I get anxiety just thinking about setting up front derailleurs, but thankfully this one is very, very easy to install. The Yaw technology is the real deal. In about 20 minutes I was up and running with clean shifts and no rubbing across my whole cassette in either chaining. Can't ask for more than that.

Yaw on a budget

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Incredibly easy setup, and fantastic front shifting performance. I haven't set up a new front derailleur in probably close to 10 years (1x ftw) but on the rebuild of my road bike, I thought it worth it. Took me 15 minutes and it shifts like a dream!

Unanswered Question

Will this derailleur work with a 2012 Sram 10spd system?
