New Red AXS Max Rear Derailleur

Can officially accommodate up to 36T rear cog…probably larger in actual use, I’d guess.

Gravel riders rejoice everywhere!

I’ve seen a lot of local gravel guys using the Eagle AXS derailleur and/or cassette with a 1x front for a lot of range, but this is definitely a win for roadies who want more gearing. Wonder just how slow of a ratio you can build with a 36t and SRAM’s smaller front chainring sizes

Are we going to see 1x Red pushed more as a road setup, I wonder? 46 and 10-36 might be attractive for guys without very steep or long local climbs

Who comes up with SRAM’s naming scheme?

We have Red Max and Force Wide, why not Red Wide for the derailier? I guess the reasoning behind Force was for wide r tires as opposed to a larger max capacity but just seems dumb
