Sram has launched the new Red AXS groupset today, ending months of discussion and speculation on when it would officially appear. There have been sightings of the new groupsets since December 2022, as well as leaks and sightings here and there along the way. American manufacturer Sram also need not worry about having to wait for the new equipment to claim a victory on the road: Demi Vollering and Jonathan Milan have broken that particular duck already.
