Now that SRAM's got its one by tech dialed for 'cross, it's delivered the Force 1 groupset, which boasts enough versatility to transition between road, 'cross, and gravel pursuits without missing a shift. Put the Force 1 Type 2. 1 Rear Derailleur to the test during the lung busting laps of your next cyclocross race and take advantage of the consistent shifting this latest update delivers.Missed shifts and dropped chains are frustratingly common on rough terrain, which was why SRAM developed its Roller Bearing Clutch technology, equipping the Type 2. 1 to hang onto your chain on the bumpiest of rides. That means you'll actually get to experience a little peace and quiet on a training ride rather than constantly listening to a bouncing chain or derailleur, and with the addition of SRAM's stabilizing X Horizon technology, you can use less muscle to initiate a shift without worrying about ghost shifts surprising you when you're out of the saddle on a climb. Plus, wherever you are on your cassette, each gear shift requires the exact same amount of force every time with the addition of SRAM's Exact Actuation technology. That means no more need to work harder to get into your highest gear, plus quieter shifts all around.
