SRAM Red PowerDome Cassette is a pretty cool innovation. Eight of the ten cogs are built on a machined CroMoly block, which creates the dome, and has a styley red anodized laser etched aluminum cap on the inside. Also on the style side of things, the SRAM Red Crankset shows the tight carbon weave on the outside and is painted silver on the inside with SRAM written along the arm. A little bold perhaps, but it does look pretty cool when you see it in real life. The bottom bracket used for the kitis the same super smooth ceramic Black Box Bottom Bracket they came out with earlier this year. The Red Rear Derailleur has an impressive list of ingredients; polished aluminum, a magnesium inner link, a titanium pivot, carbon cage, and ceramic bearings make up this lightweight workhorse. The Red Front Derailleur has a hardened titanium cage.
There is no question this group is going to make an impact on the cycling world. It is going to be the group mounted to Trek Madones and ridden by Johan Bruyneel's Team Astana this coming season. It's great to see SRAM not only offering a high-end groupset, but one that is as good if not better than the rest. Curently quantities are limited, give us a call for latest availability.
