What appeared to be an updated version of SRAM’s Red AXS groupset was spotted at this weekend’s Itzulia Women race in the Basque country.

Up untill now the spy shots of the 'unreleased Red' left us with more questions than answers, but here we have been able to spot some obvious changes from the outgoing groupset.
