With every new generation of SRAM FORCE, it gets harder and harder to distinguish it from RED. And believe us, the FORCE BB30 2. 2 Crankset skews the line more than ever. With an integrated carbon fiber spider, carbon crankarms, and chainrings that are a spitting image of 2011 RED, the FORCE 2. 2 is just as ready to race as its older brother. For the construction of the FORCE 2. 2 crankset, SRAM continues its use of unidirectional carbon fiber on the arms and spider. The reasoning for this is simple -- it provides the stiffest, lightest, and most vibration-absorbent ride quality possible. When examining the load paths, SRAM found that the single-direction of the fibers transmit force with more clarity and less dissipation. So, when you drop the hammer, you're going to experience a clean and precise transfer of your energy to the rear wheel. And with the BB30 system, this is amplified even further. Just like the RED crankset, FORCE BB30 2. 2 benefits from the system's 10% increase in rigidity, 20% lighter weight, and 300% greater ankle clearance over SRAM's GXP bottom bracket. And new to the 2. 2 iteration of FORCE, you can expect trickle-down, RED-like PowerGlide chainrings to enhance all of the characteristics above. These broad and stiff chainrings are the perfect mating to the 2. 2's integrated, carbon fiber spider. They provide a stiff transfer of power while the gates and ramps ensure flawless shifting from ring to ring. Each aluminum ring has also been given a hard-anodized finish to guarantee longevity over multiple seasons. Compared to the prior generations of Force PowerGlide rings, there is no comparison. The SRAM FORCE BB30 2. 2 Crankset is available in both a compact 50/34t and standard 53/39t chainring configuration and in 170, 172. 5, 175, and 177. 5mm crankarm lengths. Please note that the compact ring configuration still operates perfectly with a standard Force front derailleur.
