Force 22. READY FOR YOUR BEST. However you define yourself as a rider, SRAM Force 22 is ready to help you achieve your personal best, offering no compromise of quality, function and features. SRAM has completely redesigned SRAM Force and loaded it with all of the key innovations of SRAM RED, with no apologies for its fleet looks, ergonomics, efficiency, and lightweight design. Apart from the complete overhaul, SRAM Force also provides you twenty-two (CX1 eleven) usable gears, shifting speed and precision that can only be matched by SRAM RED, and a new sleek finish. The understated SRAM Force group is for rational people with an irrational passion for performance. It is SRAM's most exciting introduction for 2013, and SRAM designed it to be everything any rider at any level would ever require, and it’s ready for your best.
Road and cyclocross braking has remained in the dark ages. Sure, they’re shinier and lighter, but rudimentary. While frame and drive train development has been the stuff of modern space exploration, road braking has languished with the likes of horse shoes an buggy whips. Until now.
SRAM, long a leader in hydraulic braking technology with the Avid brand, has reset the vision for road bike braking for the coming decade. Not unlike every other high speed conveyance, SRAM brings hydraulic technology to road cycling for multiple applications. Disc or rim brake, SRAM will stop what you’ve propelled, faster and with better modulation. Go ahead and go in deep.
The SRAM Force 22 ErgoDynamics™ hydraulic shifter is bred from the DNA of SRAMs best-in-class SRAM RED, representing SRAM's most advanced thinking on perfecting the interface between cyclocross rider and bike.

ErgoDynamic™ Shifters were modeled after the best in class comfort of SRAM RED, and represent SRAM's most advanced thinking yet on perfecting the interface between rider and bike. Everything received the same detail, including the transition between handlebar and hoods, the grip texture, finger wrap, and the separate interfaces with both the shifter and brake lever. The understated black finish makes it look fast and a perfect match for any machine.
ErgoFit textured body improves grip and finger wrap with reduced diameter, providing better control, and a better transition to the bar.
Larger carbon ErgoBlade lever improves shifting from the drops.
Individual Reach Adjust of brake and shift lever, now easier to access and uses a standard hex key, puts the controls exactly where you want them.
DoubleTap® technology delivers both shifts from the single lever.
ZeroLoss™ shifting, shifts engage immediately. New clamp allows better fit and adjust for modern carbon and ergo bars.
Yaw offers in combination with a Yaw compatible front derailleur a rotating of the front derailleur cage to maintain a consistent angular relationship with the chain.
Please use Force 22 Hydro Shifter with SRAM Hydraulic Disc or Rim brake calipers only. For best shifting performance please use the SRAM Force 22 front control lever with a SRAM 2-speed YAW front derailleur.
