Bikes available now with Sram's latest wireless groupset

Following the launch of the Sram Rival eTap AXS, we rounded up a few of the bikes available now with the new groupset

It's here: the new Sram Rival eTap AXS groupset has arrived, bringing wireless shifting to a more AXS-ible price point.

So we thought it would be a good idea to round up a few of the best bikes that come with the new groupset fitted as standard. Just cross your fingers on stock levels.

Bikes available now with Sram's latest wireless groupset

Boardman SLR 9.4 Disc | £2,700

This one's a brand new bike and will be available later this month. The SLR 9.4 Disc sits between Boardman's award-winning SLR 9.2 Disc and the 9.6 Disc.

With the 12-speed Rival eTap AXS groupset and the claimed 900g C10 Carbon frameset it promises to bring pro performance to a wider audience.

It also has tubeless-compatible Alex RXD3 alloy wheels with 30mm rims that Boardman says weigh 1550g as well as 28mm Vittoria Rubino Pro Graphene 2.0 tyres and hidden mudguard mounts for evergreen use.

Visit boardmanbikes.com for more or check out other Boardman SLR bikes out now at Halfords.

Trek | from £4,200

Trek's gone all in on the new Rival, with models available to buy for the Domane, Émonda and Madone, just look for bikes labelled 6 eTap.

So whatever style of road riding you're into there is a Rival eTap AXS-equipped bike for you, although despite it being a more 'accessible' groupset, prices for Trek options start at £4,200.

However if money isn't an object, getting the Rival-equipped bikes might save you a few pennies to pair your bike with the brand new super fast Bontrager Aeolus RSL wheels.

Here are the options:

Domane SL 6 eTap, £4,200, buy now  
Domane SLR 6 eTap, £6,700, buy now   
Émonda SL 6 eTap, £4,200, buy now  
Émonda SLR 6 eTap, £6,550, buy now  
Madone SLR 6 eTap, £7,450, buy now  

Specialized | from £4,400

Currently there are four Specialized bikes across its range with the Rival eTap AXS and, like Trek, it depends on your definition of 'accessible' as to who the new options are available to but they are, on the whole, cheaper than Trek's offerings.

The choice actually covers a wider range of uses too, with a model of Specialized's Diverge gravel bike benefitting from Sram's launch.

Specialized's options are:

Diverge Expert, £5,750, buy now  
Tarmac SL7 Comp, £4,500, buy now
