Sram has introduced a 11-32 cassette within its new Apex line - directly challenging Shimano's 105.

Apex is the latest road componentry groupset from Sram that borrows technologies from the Tour de France conquering RED gruppo, including DoubleTap (one lever, two shifts), reach adjust (for custom lever fit), exact actuation (for consistent and precise shifts), and Zero-Loss shifting (for immediate shift engagement).

The manufacturer claims that its double compact chainrings (50/34), combined with the Apex long cage rear derailleur, weighs in a full 284 grams lighter than Shimano's 105.

Sram RED, Force, or Rival shifters are compatible with the Apex derailleur and cassette.
