The Apex name is appropriate for this groupset for a few reasons. First, it's the high point of value in the SRAM road world. Apex utilized the same PowerGlide chainrings used on the Force and Rival cranks. It also only weighs 890 grams. Second, this compact 50-34 crankset paired with SRAM''s PG1050 cassette (11-32T) and the SRAM Apex rear derailleur offer gear ratios never before experienced on the road, yet it avoids the clumsiness and bad efficiencies of triple cranks. This means climbing hills and mountain passes will be easier and more enjoyable than ever before.

asked by: a guest Campy compatible? Would like to put this on my wife's Eros Donna (9spd).
anwered by: canteau SRAM Apex cranks are designed for 10-speed chains which are thinner than 9-speed so you may get some noise and premature wear. Also certain Campy groups require a different front drailleur for compact vs standard gearing.
