2012 SRAM Red Pricing, Weights Leaked?
Thanks to a reader calling himself (herself?) gfoto, we’ve
got had a screen grab from an online retailer showing individual component weights for the 2012/2013 SRAM Red group along with a package price a little south of $2,500.
UPDATED: Had to pull the image and some of the exact numbers…some things just aren’t meant to be seen yet. Patience, friends.
If the numbers we saw prove to be true when the group is officially unveiled in a couple weeks, it’ll bear out rumors we’ve heard that weight continues to drop and pricing will be a bit more than the current Red group, which would be expected anyway. With not all of the parts in the group weighing in 2012/2013 form, the total group weight is somewhere around an astonishingly low 1,850g. Keep in mind, this is only for the standard, cable-actuated brakes. Whether a disc or hydraulic brake is offered at the initial launch is still anyone’s guess.
One thing to note, the Front Derailleur and Bottom Bracket numbers we’ve seen were current model year, not the YAW FD seen in image teasers already released. So, the new group could be even lighter than anticipated.
Another reader recently sent in some individual prices found on Downeast Cycling, which was yanked…but not before someone on Weight Weenies managed to pull the ol’ copy-and-paste trick.
