Strengths:    Uhmm, it says SRAM Red which makes your bike look cool because you thought you bought the best. Light weight.

Weaknesses:    The 2011 derailleur has a titanium cage which means Flex! Too much flex so that shifting feels like mush. You would think folks in the drive train industry would know this about materials, and you would expect that they would test their product before launching it. Duh! You cannot find the shifting sweet spot no matter how much you adjust it, and will face continual chain drop off the big ring. Oh, and why the heck did Sram not put a pin in their big ring to prevent the chain from getting continually wedged between the crank arm and the ring? After a year of d*cking around with this, Sram has agreed to send me a Force derailleur as a replacement. It has a steel cage.

Bottom Line:   
Sram's 2011 Red drivetrain sacrifices performance in an attempt to shave a few grams. Buy Shimano if you want high end performance. I am done with Sram after XO rear derailleur "explosion", Red' front derailleur garbage and Red front shifter out of the box failure. Ran shimano for years with no issues like these.
