Moving up a step.

Beyond the 22 gears, the Force 22 GXP Crankset draws heavily from SRAM's Red technology for more precision and power than before. SRAM lays up the cranks with unidirectional carbon fibers. When placed parallel to each other, the strength of carbon fiber is maximized so that the loads work along the axis of the fibers. This also means the amount of carbon used is able to be reduced, which in turn means greater weight savings. The unidirectional carbon decreases flex, which means every pedal stroke counts for a bit more. The spider it’s mated to is a forged alloy that includes the spindle on the non-drive side. SRAM chose to use a 130mm diameter spider, which means you’re able to use it with most aftermarket chainrings. Taking the standard a bit further, however, the mounting bolt has been incorporated into the backside of the crank arm. This reduces deflection and ensures no skipped front shifts.

Trickling down from the SRAM Red group are the Exogram chainrings. SRAM uses its "True 22" X Glide R chainring calibration, ensuring no missed shifts. They are machined from 5mm 7075-T6 aluminum and specifically designed for the 11-speed system with optimized shift ramp profiles and stiffness.

Hills are a little easier!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Have been thinking of switching to a 50/34 for some time and finally saw this crank at a great price here on CC. Very happy with the product; installation was easy; and works flawlessly on my 10 speed setup. It's not quite like an e-bike for going up hills, but I've noticed the lower gearing up front has helped for the steep ones here in Northern California. I'm not missing the top end 53 either. Even riding with a group in a paceline has not been a problem on the 50. Happy in every respect! And the not to be missed: the crank just looks good!

Can I use this crank with eTap derailleur?

Hey Bob,

Yes, it is compatible with ETap. You will have no issues.

Will the 50/34 force 22 crank set trade straight across on a Ridley helium force 22 with 52/36 with the pf30 bottom bracket?

Great for the monster cross/gravel bike

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Changed a 50x34 to this 46x36, works well with 10 sp, minor adjustment to the front derailleur need to be moved down a bit. With and 11x36 cassette, as I said, great for gravel riding and some mountain courses.

The Sram carbon road cranks are awesome. This crank looks great and is really light. I highly recommend it if you're looking to shave a few grams. Shifting is pristine and the crank doesn't weigh much less than Red. I made the switch from Ultegra.

Unanswered Question

Will this crank (50/34) work with a Shimano 9sp Sora chain ? Or, would a new 11sp chain work better ? Thanks.

Can I install a Force 22 BB30 in a English threaded bike?

Thanks for your question Darrin, sadly the BB30 uses a wider crank spindle and will not fit in an english threaded bottom bracket. While you can go from BB30 back down, you cann't go up to BB30. You can though get the Force 22 GXP and that will work with a GXP Threaded bottom bracket.

Is the GXP version the correct one for a 2012 Trek Madone 4.6?

Hi Gordon,

According to Trek's spec's your bike has a BB90 and that will work with the GXP.
