If one had a keen eye for detail, evidence of a new 12-speed SRAM Red eTap groupset be ridden under the auspices of Team Katusha-Alpecin could be spotted during last weekend’s Saitana Criterium in Japan.
Indeed, images began whirling about the internet after 12-cogs were spotted onboard Nils Pottit’s bike in the pit area.
From what we can glean from the images captured by Instagram-er Mikey.vk, Pottit’s bike appears to be equipped with a 10-28 cassette, along with a new 50t/36t crankset with integrated chainrings.
The crankset also looked to include a new power meter crankarm from Quarq, as well as slightly different shaped brake levers compared to SRAM’s current HydroR lever.
There’s not much else to report at this time. But, suffice to say, this spotting likely serves as a portend for things to come from SRAM.
