New SRAM R2C Aero shifters: innovative shifting.
Features, 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.
- Exact 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.
