Latest Force groupset from Sram, Force 22 is 2 x 11 speed
For 20 years I've only used Shimano on my road bikes so was nervous about the switch to SRAM. A new bike build and Merlin's fantastic price was all the encouragement I needed to choose the Force 22 over Ultegra. Thanks to Merlin's great service the box arrived the next day and seeing the contents it felt like Christmas!
The quality, functionality and ergonomics of this groupset are superb, and the weight savings over Ultegra are significant, even for us non-professionals. In fact the benefits over Ultegra put Force in its own category really, somewhere between Ultegra and Red/Dura Ace. Those top-end groupsets offer no-compromise performance that I'd argue only pros can benefit from.
In my opinion the Force 22 is the best value groupset on the market and I'm looking forward to using it for many thousands of miles.
This groupset is great. The front shifting is much improved. Having no rub and 11 speed makes it even better.
This group set is my first experience of SRAM. I'm coming form Ultegra Di2, so is a significant change.
My experience to day, from installation, setup and riding has been excellent. Was very easy to install and setup (Remember to order a front brazier clamp if you need one).
I absolutely love the single lever double tap. My winter bike has Shimano 105 and am now thinking of replacing that with an alternative from SRAM. It's smooth and precise and very easy to use.
The design and colour also complimented my bike with it's muted dusky blue and gunmetal finish on the callipers and drive set.Looks pro, and rides pro.
