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 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.
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.
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.
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
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.
- Review: 3T Strada
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
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
Canyon Aeroad CF SLX Disc 9.0 SL £TBC
Canyon Endurace CF SLX Disc 9.0 SL £TBC
BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc Limited £TBC

Wilier Cento10Pro IRIDE GREY £TBC
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
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
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.
