Competition improves the breed: SRAM Red Double Tap controls break new ground in materials applications and design for even better performance and customized comfort.
Driven by the project’s goal of light weight, higher efficiency and advanced materials, for the second year in a row we’ve created the lightest, most advanced shifter in the world. Built around SRAM’s revolutionary Double Tap technology, the new SRAM Red Double Tap controls are designed to exceed the needs of even the most serious racers. The Red Shifter uses a highly developed version of Double Tap, which is enhanced by new pawl geometry that results in zero-loss travel. Additionally, the Red front shifter mechanism gains a new trim feature to optimize chainring selection. With less effort, Red controls deliver faster shifts, more precisely.
The shifter’s ergonomic design factors in comfort and light weight, with a ground-breaking brake and shift lever reach-adjustment capability that allows you to achieve a more natural, aggressive and comfortable riding position. Additionally refinements in the lever’s design further improve shifting efficiency and performance, as does an even lower weight than its already light SRAM Force counterpart. These refinements include Dual Cable Routing, so no matter what type of bars you use, you don’t have to compromise comfort for performance. SRAM Red Double Tap controls also take advantage of a redesigned trim feature that gives you precise adjustment and greater compatibility with the big ring. While pilling on design upgrades, like longer and optimized control levers and optional cable exit points, Red controls manage to come in almost 10% lighter than Force’s best-in-class weight. For riders who want it all, your next gruppo begins here.
