Electronic shifting is perfect for triathlon and time trial bikes. Mechanical cable routing can not only be hard to thread, but the convoluted route can make shifting sluggish. But wired electronic systems are equally hard to thread, and hiding a battery can be difficult thanks to narrow tube dimensions. SRAM’s Red eTap Aero group brings the smooth action of electronic shifting along with the convenience of wireless, and the flexibility to place shifters wherever you want along with whatever brake levers you want.
Included with this kit are the SRAM wireless eTap front derailleur, rear derailleur, batteries, four Blip shifters, a master Blip Box, charger, cord, USB stick, and Quick Start guide. In other words, everything but crank, cassette, chain, or brakes. If you’ve got a double-ring crank, an eleven-speed cassette and chain, you can simply add this group to what you have and you’re ready to rock.
