12-speed too, which is nice that things will be cross compatible with Red. I’m mostly concerned with the chainrings and cranks so there is still compatibility with third-party powermeters.

Hopefully it’s not too expensive, they have an 10-36 cassette and that you don’t need 12 speed chainrings.

It looks like the cassette uses the pinned construction, which will save a lot of cost. The two-piece chainrings should also be resonably priced.

My guess is the retail price wise it should be comparable to Dura Ace Di2. But OEM pricing will be very aggressive hence Force eTap bikes could come in at or slightly above Ultegra Di2.

Excel Sports listings have 10-26 and 10-28 options (and I assume there'll be more) for the 1270 level cassette.

Looks like the same 107 BCD chainrings as Red 1x.

Doesn't look like a power meter... Go pedal based or Red chainring PM?

Devoid of some of the controversial design choices of Red, this can be the thing to go for in the SRAM range

If Ultegra di2 pricing is real. This is a 100% cop from me. The entire group looks.nicer than axs in my opinion.

Looks nice. I wonder if Sram will release any 110 BCD chainrings for 12-speed at all for people who want to keep existing power meters etc., or if that will be all up to third parties?

Personally I've already ordered Red eTap AXS for my new primary road bike. While Force eTap AXS would be nice for an upcoming rainy weather bike I am hoping there will be updated mechanical groups on both Force and Rival level at the same time…

I'd say P2M etc will have spiders available soon enough

That's my hope! My build this summer seems like it will end up being a CAAD with Force eTap and P2M. If we go off of previous CAAD12 eTap builds it shouldn't be hard to get it to 7kg.

Sure, but that doesn't help people who would rather not shell out for a new powermeter rather than keep on using the one they have.
