SRAM Rival 22 11-speed Rear Derailleur
The Rival 22 rear derailleur is equipped with the same technology as its bigger brothers, the Force 22 and the Red 22. The biggest difference is its weight. Not using a carbon cage and using steel bolts and pins in this derailleur brings it weight up to 180 grams.
The Rival 22 rear derailleur uses a Exact Actuation shifting mechanism what makes this derailleur shift on a 1: 1 ratio, every click means movement to another sprocket. The new Aero Glide jockey wheels ensure a muted shifting sound.
There is a short and a WiFli cage available for the Rival 22 series. The short cage can handle cassettes up to 28 teeth, the WiFli cage can handle cassettes up to 32 teeth.

As good as Force for half the price and only few more grams
Excellent derailleur. I have just changed my old 10s Force after the right shifter gave up from 6 years of heavy use. I took the opportunity to upgrade to a 11s set. When considering to stick with Force I noticed that the weight difference between Rival and Force is marginal (about 100 grams for shifters and derailleur). This did not justified the price difference taking into account that the mechanics, precision and reliability of both sets is the same. Very happy to save about £200. 100grams will not make any difference on my performance. Very good price offered by Mantel.
