It was only a matter of time until we finally got our hands on SRAM’s new 12 Speed Etap AXS groupset on one of our bikes in store and what a bike to come on.
This Trek Madone SLR 9.9 Disc, recently voted Bike Radar’s Superbike Of The Year 2019, offers not only the latest in hi-tech racing pedigree but “groundbreaking comfort, stunning handling and a monumentally capable machine”. With adjustable IsoSpeed those treacherous British roads suddenly don’t look as rough and horrible to ride as they used to.
Meanwhile, SRAM’s new AXS groupset is looking to redefine the ways we see our groupsets today by offering a 12th gear, a smaller 10 tooth sprocket, and new standards for the front chainrings beyond the now well known ‘compact’ system. Overall if offers “buttery smooth shifts, quiet operations, and brilliant gear range”.
