Sram's Etap shifting kit is now available in two options - either standard road, with a maximum cassette range of 11-28, or WiFli with a medium cage rear derailleur that allows use of cassettes with a maximum range of 11-32.
SRAM's long-awaited eTap group set has been hailed as the future of shifting. We have a set on our test bike to put it through its paces and so far we'd say the marketing hype is not far off the truth. Bike Radar's Ben Delaney praised it saying "SRAM Red eTap comes with a slight learning curve, but quickly delivers on simple functionality. Shifting at the levers and ‘Blip’ satellite buttons is easy, with positive tactile and audio feedback — click! — and a near impossibility of accidental shifts, regardless of conditions or bulky gloves."
If you're interested in hearing more about SRAM this is what they say themselves about the new group.
At SRAM, we know that if a technological advancement clutters the experience, it shouldn’t be called an advancement at all. Because it’s a bicycle. It’s supposed to be simple. To make something elegant to the point where it removes what’s in the way... that’s advancement. And that is the standard we held ourselves to while developing our first electronic shifting system. It’s called SRAM RED eTap.
Featuring SRAM’s advanced shift logic (right lever makes it harder, left lever makes it easier, both levers to change the front ring) with SRAM RED eTap you’ll shift more, with less effort and spend less time doing it. Shifting has never been more intuitive or as easy as this.
And SRAM RED eTap is engineered to go the distance. It has been rigorously and successfully tested for years on the professional and WorldTour level. And now, it’s ready for the rest of the world. Are you ready to shift forward?
