Looks like we can expect Sram Rival AXS to be available pretty soon.

I don't have the full details, but I understand the electronic componenets to be around 10-20% cheaper than the equivalent Force part.

Other items such as chains, cassettes etc will be more like 30-40% cheaper. Max tooth count on the rear will be 36.

Anyone have any other details or maybe some pics?

some say this will be a gravel focused groupset i.e. 1x with a long cage rear mech. if thats the case, i will be very interested to see if they are going to make it MTB compatible as well since there is certainly a market for GX level AXS groupset.
Some say pour 10ml water out of your bottle to save that last bit of the weight. Sorry, i go one step further, i tend to the rider off my bikes. :thumbup:
n+1...14 last time i checked, but i lost count :mrgreen:

I don't believe there will be anything with a long cage rear mech - I personally would very much like to see something like a 10-42.

However, there is a GX AXS being released alongside Rival AXS, which will all be cross compatible.

So, what would be a rough estimate for a road 2x groupset?

Sounds like a lower priced version of force. The wide RD that works best with the 10-36 does not have a longer cage. The pivot mount is just moved further back. Both have the same 70.5mm cage length.

The standard model RD will work with the 10-36 and has enough wrap for a 16T difference at the crank. IMO, this is where sram goofed, limiting their cranks to a 13T difference.

If sram would copy Campy's 9-42, without the 9, they'd have a good gravel cassette.

There is an ad for it on the Velonews home page, but the link goes to a page that doesn't exist...

All listed on Wiggle, e.g. rear derailleur.

What SRAM has managed to do with GX / Rival AXS is quite a leap forward. It is not easy to reduce the cost of the mechatronics as to be able to sell the components at this price range.

I would e surprised if this didn't have strong consequences in market share, both OEM and aftermarket.

OEM spindle based power at the Rival/105 level? That's called setting the bar.
