The Yaw front derailleur changed the shifting game forever when it was introduced as part of the 2012 Red 10-speed group and the SRAM Force 22 front derailleur takes the Yaw to the next evolutionary level. It's been updated and optimized to work with the thinner 11-speed chain and chainrings found in the SRAM 22 line. The fundamental workings, however, remain the same, so you can still shift into any gear combination without experiencing chain rub, and the derailleur exerts a powerful shift that makes changing gears feel easy. The integrated chain-catcher helps prevent dropped chains, so you can have a little more confidence trying to get down to the little ring in case you mistimed your opportunity to shift before the big hill.
Revolutionary yaw cage rotates to maintain constant alignment with the chain for faster, more precise shifting with no need for trimming
Optimized for use with SRAM X GlideR chainrings
For use with SRAM 22 11-speed chain and cranksets
Integrated chain catcher adjusts independently of the derailleur and prevents the chain from dropping off the inner chainring
Cage is fabricated from a steel/aluminum combination for strength and durability
Precision markings indicate proper installation and set-up for best performance
