2013 SRAM Red Braze-on Front Derailleur
If there's thing that drives us absolutely crazy, it's dialing in a front derailleur. Even when we think we've got it pretty much right, that doesn't mean it won't still drop a chain or rub every now and again. So we're pretty glad that SRAM introduced their all-new 2013 SRAM Red Braze-On Front Derailleur. By incorportating something SRAM calls YAW technology, this new front derailleur is probably the biggest evolution in front shifting in a long time. Instead of just moving the cage back and forth, the YAW derailleur actually rotates as well, so you no longer need to trim the derailleur. That means faster, smoother and more precise shifting. They also incorporated a chain keep, so you can say good bye to dropped chains, even with a badly aligned derailleur.
Click for Instruction Manual
  • Optimized for use with SRAM X GlideR chainrings
  • Lightweight integrated chain spotter adjusts independently of the derailleur and prevents the chain from dropping off the inner chainring
  • Revolutionary yaw cage rotates to maintain constant alignment with the chain for faster, more precise shifting with no need for trimming
  • Cage is fabricated from a steel/aluminum combination for strength and durability
  • OE Packaged
  • Precision markings indicate proper installation and set-up for best performance

      This was an upgrade from my 2011 SRAM Force. This RED version is top notch. The "Yaw" dynamic is a stroke of genius!

        Comments about 2013 SRAM Red Braze-on Front Derailleur:

        This has finally stopped my chain drops from the inner ring and eliminated chain rubbing in the extreme positions on the rear cassette.

        • Lightweight
        • Smooth shifting
        • Works Well With 2010 Red

        Cons

        • Install Is Tricky

        Best Uses

        • Commuting/City
        • Road Biking

        Comments about 2013 SRAM Red Braze-on Front Derailleur:

        Had trouble with the install, but stuck with it (and read directions more closely!) and really like the overall feel of the shifts. Ended up with two extra parts from packaging. No idea what they are for, but shifts are quicker than old SRAM Red. Happy so far!
