SRAM R2C Aero shifters: innovative shifting.
that only Formula One drivers could enjoy, are now available for the best
Triathletes and Time Trial specialists in the world: Michellie Jones, Chris
Lieto, Lance Armstrong and Fabian Cancellara.
No need to bend your hands
anymore, SRAM’s new R2C (Return to Center) bar-end shift lever allows you to start in your
best aerodynamic position and keeps you there! After every shift the shifter
immediately and automatically returns to the starting ‘center’. No more efforts,
stress and loss of concentration. Just focus on your search for speed.
The narrow shifting blade is made of unidirectional carbon and has been shaped
perfectly to fit between the thumb and the first finger. The inside titanium
bolt enables you to adjust the initial position of the
shift lever within a 40 degrees range for a 100% customized fit. Front and rear
shifting are indexed for precise and flawless gear changes. Two trim positions
at the front ensure the best possible chainline. The SRAM R2C time trial
shifters weigh in at 175g a pair.
Actuation - When
SRAM launched their road technology from scratch they reapplied their MTB proven
SRAM 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel : derailleur movement) for 10
speed rear shifting. EA helps to simplify/stabilize the uneasy act of balancing
rear derailleur hanger design, tight cog spacing and exact cable tension. The
result: the easiest index shifting system to set up and it stays that way.
