SRAM sponsor some of the biggest and brightest teams and athletes in the world: RadioShack, Saxo Bank, Astana , Cervelo Test Team and some of the most outstanding triathletes including Alistair Brownlee & Julie Dibens.
Their Rival drivetrain offers top quality performance and outstanding bang for your buck. Rival utilises much of the technology that is featured on its professional level kit including the 'double-tap' shifting- offering "Exact Actuation" precision front and rear shifting with silky smooth accuracy.
The Pro Carbon Rival is our tried and totally trusted team developed carbon frameset. Light enough to bag the climbers jersey, rapid enough to get the green and comfortable enough to finish a full week race fast. With our best performance to price ratio in a full range of frame sizes, this model is a brilliantly designed but still affordable race or fast riding machine.
Bike Radar referred to it as: "An absolutely cracking race bike" 4.5/5

All frame size recommendations are approximate. A good fit will also depend on the correct choice of stem length, correct bike set-up for the rider and riding style.
Correct frame size choice can vary greatly with riders' torso length. If you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for a slightly shorter stem. If you think you are borderline between sizes, and you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for the smaller frame size. If you have shorter legs and a longer torso, go for the larger frame size to get the extra top tube length.
As the frame sizes increase, so does the length of the head tube. If you are inflexible or perhaps have a history of back problems, consider going for a larger frame size. This will increase the relative height of the handlebars making the position less “extreme”. The larger frame will also have a longer top tube, so you’ll need to compensate for this with a shorter stem.
