Cut the cables, but keep the hoses.
SRAM changed the game with their RED eTap wireless electronic groupset, delivering a simpler way to shift without wires or cables. Now, SRAM brings their intuitive wireless shifting platform to hydraulic road disc (HRD) brake-equipped bikes. Rather than simply reduce a eTap-equipped version of their HydroR design, SRAM developed a new ergonomic shifter and a brand new caliper, launching the HydroHC™ platform for their RED eTap Electronic WiFli HRD Disc Groupset.
These new calipers offer more control, adjustability, and better braking power than any previous SRAM hydraulic caliper, providing Contact Point Adjustment™ for fine tuning of exactly when the pads make contact with the rotor, a first for HRD brakes. With Bleeding Edge™ technology, the HydroHC system is quick and easy to achieve a bubble-free bleed.
The RED eTap shifters draw their inspiration from the world of Formula 1 racing, using a dual-paddle design to control shifting. For an upshift simply press the right paddle, while the left controls downshifting, and pressing both paddles together shifts the front derailleur. This intuitive shift system takes mere seconds to make it second nature. Included in this groupset is the WiFli rear derailleur, accepting rear cogs up to 32t, making the steepest of climbs easier than ever.
Removable rechargeable batteries in the derailleurs are interchangeable and provide a good month of riding time, or about 620 miles between charges. The small size and interchangeability means that if you do find yourself away from home and a battery runs out of charge, you can swap your batteries with a spare in your pocket or simply prioritize your good battery to the rear derailleur. CR2032 coin-type batteries provide anywhere between 6 months and 2 years of life to the shifters. Indicator lights on each component will let you know the status of each charge, and alert you way in advance of low battery life.
