SRAM Red eTap Electronic Wireless Road Groupset
As possibly the most anticipated product of the past year, the SRAM Red eTap Electronic Road Groupset has a lot to live up to. Providing split second, seamless shifting, the groupset enhances gear change performance through a reduction of cabling, which in turn reduces both weight and increases aerodynamics. This also stops any contaminants such as stretched or frayed cables from affecting the drivetrain's ability to perform.
With well over 500,000 miles of testing, including multiple Grand Tours, the eTap is ready for the road. The system connects via SRAM proprietary AIREA wireless protocol. This system uses incredibly secure 128-bit encryption, similar to the one used by cash point machines, so security is not an issue.
The rear derailleur allows for shifting up or down the rear cassette to happen instantly. Unbelievably easy to set up, the mechanical properties such as the carbon pulley cage, ceramic pulley bearing and high polish alloy blend perfectly with the proprietary electronic system. At just 215 grams, without the battery, this derailleur still maintains a very slim profile and the medium cage fits a 28-tooth maximum sprocket cassette.
The front derailleur continues the lightweight theme at just 163 grams without the battery. Working seamlessly with the wireless protocol, this derailleur utilises SRAM's cutting-edge YAW technology that makes automatic adjustments throughout the gear range without the need for a rider's input.
SRAM's eTap system is compatible with all SRAM 22 cranksets, chains, chainrings, brakes and cassettes and the IP67 standard means it is both dust and water-tight when submerged to a depth of 1 metre for 30 minutes.
Both the front and rear derailleur batteries are included. These batteries are interchangeable and provide up to 1000 kilometres of riding per charge. The included USB battery recharger brings the batteries up to capacity in just 45 minutes and the system automatically powers up or goes into sleep mode when the bike is moving or stationary.
