Sram presentation :
Sram is the acronym for Scott, Ray and Sam, this company is based in Chicago, Illinois, United States.
Sram's activity began in 1988 with the marketing of a gear control for road bikes and then for mountain bikes in 1991, called "Grip Shift", it is a gear lever which allows a gear change. by an indexed rotation around the handlebars.
In 1990, Sram sued Shimano for unfair competition because Shimano was offering a 10% discount to all bicycle manufacturers who would use complete drivetrain groups. Sram was successful and the following years were marked by spectacular growth for Sram.
In 1995, Sram offered its first rear derailleur named ESP which for a cable pull of 1 corresponds to a displacement of 1 speed for the derailleur, this technique allows better adjustment reliability, Shimano uses a 2: 1 ratio which is more sensitive cable variations.
It was in 1997 that Sram acquired Fichtel & Sachs -Huret, which enabled it to acquire additional skills in the design of transmission for bicycles.
In 2001, Sram created the XO high-end MTB drivetrain group
In 2002, Sram acquired the Rock Shox MTB forks.
Then in 2004, acquired Avid specializing in disc brakes. The same year Truvativ was purchased in order to offer complete drivetrain groups.
Sram returned in 2006 with drivetrains for road bikes with the Rival and Force ranges incorporating a new shifting technology called double tap.
In 2007, Sram acquired the Zipp wheels and launched its RED transmission for road bikes.
The Quarq cranksets incorporating a power sensor were acquired in 2011, this technology will be integrated into Sram's high-end groupsets in 2012. The same year, Sram put on the market the XX1 group, which operates with 1 chainring and 11 speeds.
In 2014, the Sram Force C1X groupset is offered for cyclocross as well as the Force 1 and Rival 1 for the road.
The first Sram Red e-tap wired electric control and derailleur transmission group was released on the market in 2015.
In 2016, Sram is offering disc brakes with its Red e-tap group which is also available in wireless controls and derailleurs. For mountain bikes the Eagle XX1 and X01 drivetrain is available in 1x12 speed.
2017, Sram produces the GX Eagle, a drivetrain that costs less than the Eagle XX1 or X01 but still in 1x12 speed.
In 2019 Sram is bringing to the market an electric and connected drivetrain group for road cycling or mountain biking, these are the Red e-Taps AXS, the XX1 Eagle AXS and the X01 Eagle AXS. An application is also available for communication with Rock Shox suspension systems.
