All components related to the drivetrain and brakes - shifters, derailleurs, crankset, brake levers, and brakes - are collectively referred to as a bike's groupset.

There are currently three major manufacturers who make complete groupsets: Campagnolo, Shimano, and SRAM.

Mountain

These lists contain each major manufacturer's mountain groupsets in roughly ascending order of quality.[1]

Road

These lists contain each major manufacturer's road groupsets in roughly ascending order of quality.[2]

Campagnolo

  • Veloce
  • Athena
  • Chorus
  • Record
  • Super Record

Chorus, Record, and Super Record all have EPS variants, which shift using servo motors rather than cables.

Shimano

  • Claris
  • Sora
  • Tiagra
  • 105
  • Ultegra
  • Dura Ace

Ultegra and Dura Ace both have Di2 variants, which add electronic shifting in a manner similar to Campagnolo's EPS systems.

SRAM

  • Red
  • Force
  • Rival
  • Apex

Red offers the eTAP variant, which functions similarly to EPS and Di2, but is wireless, rather than wired.
