SRAM RED22 Front Derailleur Yaw Braze-on with Chain Spotter

The SRAM RED 22 Front Derailleur changes everything, including offering every gear combination with no chain rub or rasp. Instead of simply moving back and forth, the derailleur cage actually rotates to maintain a consistent angular relationship with the chain. We call it Yaw™ Technology, and it eliminates the need for shifter trim. As a result, shifts feel more direct, more precise, and combined with the new SRAM RED crankset and chainrings, delivers an unmatched performance advantage in front shifting.


  • Yaw™ cage rotates in line with chain, improving the shifting speed and precision while eliminating the need for shifter trim.
  • Slim spring design eliminates frame interference.
  • Optimized for shifting with X G lide R™ C hainrings.
  • Best combination of aluminum and steel for the strongest and most durable cage we have ever made.
  • Precision alignment markings.
  • Integrated chain spotter protects your frame without adding any extra clunk, and adjusts independently of the derailleur itself.
  • Two grams lighter than 10 speed version (69g)
  • Weight: 69g (Braze-on), Chain spotter: 10.2g
  • Compatibility: SRAM RED 22 & Force 22 Front Shift/Brake levers & X-GlideR Chainrings

SRAM Red 22 Front Derailleur

Fine service from Vanillabikes. The SRAM FD is a super piece of kit.

Ignore other reviews this front mech is great!!

I've read so many reviews saying that the Sram Red mech isn't as good as the Sram Force but I strongly disagree. I've been using a 2014 Sram Force front mech for the past 2 years so I've feel I'm in a good position to pass judgement. I fitted both derailleurs to my bike and the Red was actually slightly easier to get working perfectly. There's absolutely no chain rub in any gear combination. I couldn't be happier. Thank you Vanilla
