Dec 3, 2015 – SRAM, the lone mechanical-shifting holdout of the big three component brands, finally went electronic and just obsoleted the rest of the peloton’s electronic groups.
Shifting wirelessly, with F1-inspired paddle shifting, Red eTap makes wires and multiple shift buttons feel so 2010.
Using its own essentially hack-proof wireless signal called Airea and going 1,000 kilometers between charges SRAM has gone to the head of the component class with a stunning product.
In true SRAM fashion, a complete group weighs less than 2,000 grams and since some manufacturers have told us they can shave as much as 80 grams from a frame without the need to reinforce cable holes, eTap saves even more weight.
