The year begins with a double treat for cycling enthusiasts with the 2011 SRAM Red Rear Derailleur that nicely complements the 2011 SRAM Red Front derailleur and boasts of Exact Actuation technology.

As with the front derailleur, the SRAM Red series rear derailleur gives a fluid performance thanks to the technology of Exact Actuation, which makes movement while riding more precise and provides level gear changes while running.

With a 153g mechanism consisting of outstanding components,…
