Sram Apex Road Rear Mech / Rear Derailleur MED
When Sram Apex Road Rear Mech is used in conjunction with the Apex compact double crankset, the 11-32 cassette is said by SRAM to offer a comparable gear range but with a weight saving of over 270g when compared to an equivalent triple chainset group, which means Shimano’s older 5603 version of 105. If so, then it will also usefully undercut the weight of the new 5703 system.
Besides saving weight, SRAM says that WiFli offers faster shifting across equivalent ratios, a wider overall gear range and a narrower pedal tread or Q factor. The necessarily wider gaps between gears have not been found to be a significant factor when riding.
SRAM again raises the bar of Rear Derailleur performance with our new Exact Actuation Apex rear derailleur. The Apex rear dearailleur represents the same design philosophy that has delivered our best in class products for the road market. Features include our new precise Exact Actuation ratio that offers the widest range of adjustment coupled with a precise geometry to create market leading 10 speed performance.
When we launched our road technology from scratch we reapplied our MTB proven SRAM 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel : derailleur movement) for 10 speed rear shifting. EA helps to simplify/stabilize the uneasy act of balancing rear derailleur hanger design, tight cog spacing and exact cable tension. The result: the easiest index shifting system to set up and it stays that way.
SRAM® Apex has double chainrings, which are simpler, lighter, faster, and in every way, just better than a triple. And with a gear range that’s wider, making climbing easier and descending faster, why would you ever go back to three?
