Apologies for the potentially newbie question.

I'm looking to replace the BB30 Gossamer chainset on my CAAD9 with a new 10 speed Red BB30 chainset.

Some web sites say a chainset is Exogram and some do not. However on SRAM web site I don't see any non Exogram chainsets, so is there such a thing as non-Exogram?

If there is whats the difference?

TIA

Exogram rings are thicker and have different ramps. They really do work better. I have had both.

There may be other details that I can't remember.
That being said, the regular Red chainrings work as well as any, but the exograms really were a step up. They seem to suck the chain up as soon as you start to shift.

So no difference in the cranks?

The exogram 2013 has hallow carbon crank arms and the previous version has solid.. 2012
They look totally different..
Sram is really pushing the 22 though because it was hard to find the 10 speed exogram nevermind the 2012 red, unless you buy used

Hmmm still a bit confused...

This is presumably a current product:

which is a 10 speed, and exogram?

I am using my Exogram with 11-speed, and it works great. My 172.5 53/39t came to 573 grams.
