Ratio’s 1×12 Road Upgrade Kit Converts 10 or 11 Speed to 12

Ratio’s new 1×12 road upgrade kit allows you to pair 10 or 11 speed mechanical SRAM shifters and a 1x-specific Exact Actuation™ derailleur with a 12 speed eTap™ AXS™ cassette and chain. With it you can gain all the advantages of greater gear range and closer gear ratios without the expense or weight of electronic shifting.

The Ratio 1×12 Road Upgrade Kit allows you to operate a SRAM eTap™ AXS™12 speed cassette and chain with your existing SRAM road 10 or 11 speed shifters and 1x-specific Exact Actuation™ derailleur.

Using a 1×12 Road kit gives you following advantages:

  • Greater gear range and/or closer gear ratios than 11 speed
  • Lower cost than wireless electronic. Save $1800 on a Force™ build; $800 saving on a Rival™ build
  • Lower weight. Save 160g on a Force™ build; 220g on a Rival™ build
  • No batteries to keep charged
  • The reliability and serviceability of mechanical shifting
