Is SRAM’s latest wireless groupset, Rival AXS, about to shake up the road drivetrain market?


By bringing wireless tech down to the third rung on SRAM’s groupset ladder, below the pro-level Red eTap AXS and second-tier Force eTap AXS drivetrains, the US brand is making electronic shifting more affordable than ever.

In this latest episode of BikeRadar Meets – the podcast where we chat to the industry’s leading engineers, bike designers and riders – our senior technical editor, Warren Rossiter, caught up with SRAM’s head of road, Paul Kantor, and global road product chief, JP McCarthy.

Warren chats through the new road groupset, how it was developed, and all things eTap with the people who played a leading role in bringing Rival AXS to life. Want to know more? You can also read Warren’s SRAM Rival eTap AXS review.
