Quick look: SRAM's black Red

BLOOMINGTON, MN (VN) — SRAM has just announced that it will add black color option for its top of the line Red groupset, available next month. The new option is in addition to SRAM’s Limited Tour Edition colors, which added yellow Tour de France-inspired graphics to the group.

The group itself remains unchanged, as do its silver graphics. The rear derailleur, front derailleur, crankset and chainrings, and brakes all get the new silky black finish.

VeloNews grabbed a few photos of the new colors at Frostbike this weekend.
