With a shift logic that's inspired by motorsport, SRAM'S Red ETAP HRD Shift-Brake Control adopts its Airea™ wireless communication protocol for a secure, interference-free connection. Added to this, is its hydraulic road disc brake system (HRD).
Introducing a new way to shift that virtually eliminates upshift and downshift errors, the ETAP system saves time and energy. The right lever makes it harder, the left lever makes it easier, press both levers to shift the front derailleur. Simple, unmistakable, and intuitive. In addition to this fool-proof shifting process, the hoods are ergonomically shaped to sit comfortably in the hand. The shifter is powered by two CR2032 watch batteries, which are good for 2 years of use.
Advanced shifting isn’t the only major plus point here. These levers feature SRAM’s HydroHC™ hydraulic disc brake platform, which builds on the technologies SRAM’s HydroR™ braking system. They offer powerful braking performance with fine control with more advanced heat management technologies. HydroHC™ is only seen on SRAM ETAP components and its effective heat dissipation is thanks to a wider pad pocket, a heat shield and insulated aluminium pistons. The feel can also be adjusted by using SRAM’s Contact Point Adjustment™ and Reach Adjust technologies.
Airea™: Utilising 128-bit encryption, ETAP® shift signals are transmitted and received in accordance with SRAM’s proprietary wireless protocol known as Airea™. Each time an ETAP® groupset is paired, a new encryption code is generated and assigned to the components in this group to ensure complete shifting security.
ETAP®: All of the underlying technologies in the SRAM Red® ETAP® groupset such as wireless shifting, advanced battery power management and mechatronics technologies are all meant to serve one ultimate purpose, to facilitate the most intuitive and consistent shifting available. This shift logic is called ETAP®. The right lever makes it harder, the left lever makes it easier, press both levers to shift the front derailleur. Simple, unmistakable, and intuitive.
Bleeding Edge™: Bleeding Edge™ technology makes bleeding brakes quick and simple. An updated fluid path and bleed porting make it easier to push fluid through the caliper. A dedicated bleed adapter plugs into the bleed port and seals the system to minimise air contamination and fluid loss.
Contact Point Adjustment™: Some people like the instantaneous power of a short lever throw. Others prefer the feel of a longer throw. With Contact Point Adjustment™, you can pick the position you want your fingers to be in when your brakes are engaged. It’s a quick and easy way to customise the feel of your brakes without having to move the pads. It’s also a way to balance both brake levers to feel exactly the same.
Reach Adjust: Brake lever fit and feel is a personal thing. Riders have individual positioning preferences, as well as unique hand sizes and finger lengths. Reach Adjust makes it easy to adjust your lever for maximum one-finger control for everyone.
Stealth-a-majig™: Stealth-a-majig™ is the coupling that makes initial setup of hydraulic systems fast and convenient. Its smaller size allows for easier internal cable routing, giving bikes a clean look.
