    I have a Sram Red Etap. Is the Blipbox "AXS Sram" compatible with e-Tap Red Sram 11 speeds (blips and clips)?

    Hello Fernando,

    That is a great question! SRAM eTap 11 speed components communicate through a different version of our secure wireless protocol than our more current 'AXS' components. Because of this, eTap 11-speed components are not compatible with any eTap AXS shifters or BlipBoxes. Please see the article below for a more detailed explanation of intergenerational component compatibility. 

    Can I upgrade parts bit by bit from my SRAM RED eTap 11-speed groupset?

    Bonjour,

    J'ai fais l'acquisition d'un spécialized aethos comp monté en Sram rival AXS,

    J'ai changé quelques périphériques notamment pédalier chaîne et cassette pour mettre

    Du Red AXS, par contre j'ai fais monter une chappe de dérailleur NOVA RIDE en 14/17 dents,

    Compatible RED/FORCE AXS, cependant 2 où 3 vitesses semblent passer mal, serait ce dû au fait que le Dérailleur Rival AXS n'est pas équipé du système ORBIT, et si oui, puis je éventuellement monter en lieu et place du RIVAL AXS un FORCE AXS?

    MERCI DE VOTRE RETOUR A CE SUJET,

    Bien Sportivement.

    Bonjour Paquié,

    Je vous remercie pour votre message. Je vais créer un ticket de support et demander à un collègue francophone de vous apporter une réponse. J'utilise un outil de traduction et je ne comprends pas votre demande.

    Hi, is the Quarq Force power meter compatible with the rival crankset? Rather than the spindle option?

    Hello Jason,

    Thanks for your comment! If your Rival eTap AXS crankset is a 1x, then yes. If it is 2x, then the answer is no. 

    2x Rival eTap AXS crank assemblies are not compatible with any spider-based Quarq or SRAM power meter due to their integrated spider design. The four chainring attachment points on Rival eTap AXS cranks are part of the crank forging and cannot be removed. 

    1x Rival eTap AXS crank assemblies are compatible because they use the same 8-bolt crank-to-spider direct mount interface as our SRAM spider-based power meters. This makes any Rival eTap AXS 1x crank assembly compatible with the AXS Power Meter Spider and the RED AXS Power Meter Kit

    With that in mind, the SRAM AXS Power Meter Spider and SRAM RED AXS Power Meter Kit do not support all Rival eTap AXS chainring ratios, so it's essential to keep this in mind considering this option.

    Hi

    Is it possible to use the Force shift-brake lever (EB-FRC-D1) with Rival eTap AXS components? I'm building a bike based on Rival eTap AXS but the frame will be rim brakes - Rival only includes shift-brake levers for hydraulic brakes so I wanted to use the Force brake levers.

    Many thanks.

    Hello David,

    Thanks for your comment! Yes, the SRAM Force eTap AXS shift-brake lever for mechanical rim brakes is compatible with SRAM RED or Rival eTap AXS front and rear derailleurs.
