Specialized, Canyon, Orbea and more bikes available with SRAM’s new 12-speed groupset

You’ve read all the exciting details about SRAM’s completely updated Red eTap AXS 12-speed groupset and its reconfigured gear ratios, and now you want to get your hands on it right? So here’s a list of several road bike brands that will be offering existing models equipped with the new groupset following the launch - we’ll update this list as more new bikes are released in the coming months.

Trek

Trek is launching two complete bikes with the new groupset, but it’s also offering the Madone SLR, Emonda SLR, Domane SLR and Speed Concept through its Project One customisation platform.

Trek Madone SLR 9 Disc eTap £11,549

The speediest bike in Trek's range, the Madone also has the neat trick of employing the IsoSpeed decoupler from the Domane to smooth out beaten up roads. 

Trek Emonda SLR 9 Disc eTap £10,049

This is basically the same bike that Richie Porte used to win a stage of the Tour Down Under last month. Not a bad start to his season and a good start too for the new groupset.

Cannondale​

Just the one model at launch from Cannondale’s, its all-new SystemSix aero disc-equipped race bike. But what a looker with this champagne paint finish!

Cannondale SystemSix Hi-Mod RED eTap AXS  £7,499

Rolling on Cannondale’s very own HollowGram KNOT wheels with a SRAM XDR driver, and combining a 48/35t crankset with a 10-28t cassette.

Orbea

The Basque company is adding to AXS-equipped bikes to its 2019 range, the Orca M11iLTD-D and Orca Aero M11iLTD-D.

Orbea Orca M11iLTD-D £7, 649

Orbea’s all-round Orca, the lightest bike it currently offers, will be equipped with the new Red eTap AXS groupset comprising the 48/35t chainset with integrated power meter and the 10-28t cassette.

Orca Aero M11iLTD-D £7,199

The Orca Aero was a hugely impressive bike when we tested it last year and it gets the latest SRAM groupset, combining a 48/35t chainset with 10-28t cassette and rolling on Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon Disc UST wheels with Yksion 25mm tyres.

3T

The Italian company is adding three bike complete bikes to its 2019 range, with its Strada road bike and Exploro aero gravel bike getting the new Red eTap AXS treatment.

Strada Team eTap £8,990

Strada TEAM RED eTAP side_02

The most radical and divisive new bike launched in as long as I can remember, this is a bike that will surely benefit from the wider range and closer ratios delivered by the new SRAM eTap Red AXS groupset. This is a bike I would be interested in riding to really see how the new groupset performs in a 1x configuration.

Strada Due Team Stealth £8,990

The recently launched 2x version of the Strada, like the original Strada but with added front mech provision.

Exploro LTD eTap 2x £8,990

The aero gravel bike designed to meet the demands of the fastest gravel riders, interestingly 3T has chosen to spec the bike with a 2x Red eTap AXS groupset and not produced a mullet bike combining an Eagle AXS rear mech and cassette.

Scott Foil £TBC

Canyon

There’s a healthy range of bikes from Canyon with the new groupset, including its race-ready Ultimate and Aeroad as well as the comfort-focused Endurace.

Canyon Ultimate CF SLX Disc 9.0 SL £TBC

Cento10PRO_IRIDE_GREY_ambient

To celebrate the launch of SRAM’s latest groupset, Italian company Wilier has unveiled a special new paint job for its range-topping Cento10Pro. According to the press release, “ frame's unique paintwork shimmers with reflections  and colours when viewed from different angles and viewpoints.” Wilier is charging an extra $500 over standard colours though but does include the Alabarda one-piece handlebar in the same colour.

Mason Cycles Definition Red AXS 2x £6,000

UK brand Mason Cycles has just sent us photos of its aluminium Definition built up with the new SRAM Red eTap AXS groupset.

Specialized S-Works Tarmac Disc - SRAM eTap £9,500

SW Tarmac eTap

Specialized is immediately offering its Tarmac SL6 Disc - which we reviewed last year and found to offer scintillating performance - with the new 12-speed Red eTap AXS groupset. Specialized will pair the 48/35t chainset with the widest range 10-33t cassette, with the integrated power meter and it’s rolling on Roval CLX 50 Disc wheels with Turbo Cotton tyres.

Specialized S-Works Venge Disc - SRAM eTap £9,750

SW Venge eTap

If you want pure speed, you want the Venge Disc, though you do pay handsomely for it because that’s one hefty price. It features the same 48/35t chainset with an integrated power meter and wide-range 10-33t cassette as the Tarmac and to eke out more speed, it’s spinning along on Roval CLX 64 wheels with CeramicSpeed bearings.

We'll be updating this article in the coming days and weeks as more SRAM Red eTap AXS-equipped bikes are released.

This thread should really be called "the fugliest bikes that feature the new SRAM groupset".  What a bunch of lookers!

I started at the top and thought "jeez that's ugly" and then scrolled down. It was so bad I went back and looked again. I'll go and stroke my bike and reassure it there is no chance it will get traded for any of that lot.

You managed to post 20 of the ugliest SRAM 12 speed bikes and completley fail to feature the one that's had the other cycling sites frothing

Interesting, because to me even now it has the groupset it always was waiting for, the strada 1x still doesn't work as it has not much more gear range than before ( for road racing, assume you fitted the 10-33 cassette and then a 46t ring to give you some top end, you still wouldn't get up any big hills). And sram dont now offer an 11-42 type big wide road cassette... So you would have to put a mtb mech on it with a 10-50.....

Jimthebikeguy. You're right, for gravel bikes the 10-50 cassette paired with a 40something chainring (rather than a 30something for MTB) is perfect. They seem to be calling this the 'mulllet' combo, but I can see it being offered as a complete groupset and on new bikes before very long. I've got a flat bar gravel bike running SRAM 12-speed Eagle and you just can't have too much gear range for this kind of riding.

I always thought the Systemsix was the fugliest of all bikes.......but i quite like it in champagne and minimal logos.

 

The canyons, BMC and Cervelo are R5 are good lookers.

Yes.  Although, that said, I have always enjoyed the F10 so I'll allow that one.

Edit: and the newly add Mason & the Tarmac.

The Mason seems to suit pretty well. Might be something to do with the (ironically) more mechanical looking chainrings than most of the current groupsets.

The cannondale looks a bit of a bargain compared to its direct competitors....

(just off to sell one kidney instead of two then....)

Yep, they're missing a trick here. The extra rear sprocket should in theory make a 1x12 etap set up a more realistic proposition. You could discard the smallest 10 tooth and start at say, 13 and work up to 42 to cover getting up hills and rolling terrain. I don't go fast than 35mph down hills so I'm not worried about the pro-speedster 12, 11 and 10 tooth sprockets. What would you have?

I just don't understand why SRAM/Shimano/etc don't offer overdrive cassettes in their normal ranges. Keep the smallest cog (be it 10 or 11) but have a 2 tooth step to the next cog and then give an extra cog in the middle of the pack or a larger cog at the end. That would give the majority of us weekend warriors a larger range for climbing or a smoother transistions when we are tiring in the chaingang and need the perfect ratio to cling on!

Yes 3T have one, but they have priced it for the group of cyclists who take cycling seriously enough to not want/need it. The rest of us that hardly use the 11/12/13 cogs (unless descending and then you typically shift all the way to the smallest) could then be given some gears that really make the upgrade worthwhile

Cyclo-porn aside, is there any point in these articles?  Is it not just a scroll of bike frames with a particular groupset attached to it...?  

Nothing against SRAM - never tried it - there was another a couple of weeks ago with Campagnolo groupsets. I put that down to a Xmas stocking filler....but now it's February...back to journalism guys.  Oh, and while I'm at it, can we drop the earphone reviews?   I'll go to an audiophile site to seek advice on headphones that don't come free with a phone...

I'm glad I'm not alone! Chainset and hoods are horrible. Get rid of that designer!
