SRAM may have been late to the party when it came to their electronic groupset, but they made up for lost time by tearing up the rule book with the wireless Red eTap system.
It has been a long time coming, especially when you consider Shimano first launched Di2 in 2009 and Campagnolo got on board with EPS in 2011, but SRAM have finally entered the market with a simple and innovative system.
Launched at the start of 2016, SRAM have totally re-imagined the shifting logic with eTap, with both shifters having just a single paddle. Want to shift down a gear? A quick flick of the right shifter. Want to shift up a gear? A quick flick of the left shifter. Want to switch chainrings? Push both together (regardless of whether you’re moving on or off the big ring). Simple – and no chance of accidentally popping it in the big dog while you fight your way up a steep climb.
