around SRAM’s DoubleTap® technology, the SRAM Rival DoubleTap Shift/Brake Left
Lever offers a performance advantage that other competition level shifters can’t
touch. With Zero Loss shifting front gears are engaged immediately. And, like
SRAM Red, SRAM Rival has its front trim position on the big ring. Added cable
routing options allows for both brake and shifter cables to run along either
side of the handlebar. SRAM Rival also incorporates the popular reach adjust
feature, which SRAM invented, and allows riders to customize their brake and
shift levers. Now every rider has a choice on positioning their DoubleTap®
technology makes the leap to the flatbar 9 and 10-speed bikes, delivering smooth
up and down shifts are lightning fast. The shift lever is adjustable for quick
customization and the gear indicator is easy to see for quick reference.
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.
Zero- Loss simply
means, well, zero loss—when you push on the lever, for an upshift or down shift,
the cable is engaged instantly—zero loss of movement. There is no middle-ground
where you're waiting for the shift to come. Gear changes are instant and
DoubleTap® technology delivers smooth up- and downshifts in one motion.
