. The SRAM Red HRD Shift-Brake Control is designed for those who demand the best performance from their road bike’s brakes, no matter what the weather is doing. Featuring SRAM’s HydroR™ technology, this brake takes speed control and stability to another level. The Red HRD will enable you to descend with more confidence and kill your speed much later when approaching a bend Slick Shifting. It’s not just all about the braking with this lever, as its ergonomic design offers all day comfort for cruising on the hoods. When it’s time to put some power down, SRAM’s DoubleTap© shift technology offers you multiple shifts from a single lever. This is combined with SRAM’s ZeroLoss™ engagement for crisp, immediate shifting Features: Material: Carbon Fibre (shift lever and brake lever), Aluminium (caliper) Derailleur Compatibility: SRAM road 11-Speed Pad Type: Steel-backed organic Caliper Mount Type: Post mount Optimised power and modulation for higher speeds and more control Refined lever body design is more comfortable Easy access bleed port means convenient service Shift paddle design is lightweight and offers improved finger clearance Weight: 449g (post mount version with left lever, front caliper, 800mm hose, 160mm rotor and hardware)*Please note, brake rotor not included Technologies: Connectamajig™: This is the coupling hose that makes the initial set-up of SRAM road hydraulic brake systems easy, fast and convenient for the factory, craft builder, or dealer. The intimidation of hydraulics is gone with a push and a twist, it’s just that easy. DOT 5.1™: Heat is an enemy of any brake system, so advancements in heat management mean advancements in your ride. SRAM found that in their systems DOT 5.1 takes almost three times longer to boil than DOT 4, thus allowing flawless, fade-free performance in even more extreme conditions. DoubleTap©: DoubleTap® makes changing gears easier and faster, eliminating the cumbersome and awkward engagement associated with two-lever systems. DoubleTap handles up and downshifts in one short, sweeping motion, with minimal effort and maximum comfort no matter where you are on the bars. With short, rapid taps you will shift up through the shifting range and downshifting comes via a longer sweep of the lever (in the same inward direction you upshift, but to an ergonomically maximised 15° angle) ErgoDynamics™: Longer brake levers with independent reach adjust for the brake and shift levers, and an optimised hood shape give riders of any size comfort and easy access to the controls. Reach Adjust: Brake lever fit and feel is a personal thing. Riders have individual positioning preferences, as well as unique hand sizes and finger lengths. Reach Adjust makes it easy to adjust your lever for maximum one-finger control for everyone. Yaw™ Compatibility: The front derailleur cage rotates to maintain a consistent angular relationship with the chain. Yaw technology eliminates the need for shifter trim. As a result, shifts feel more direct, more precise, and combined with the new Red crankset and chainrings, delivers an unmatched performance advantage in front shifting. ZeroLoss™: ZeroLoss 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 precise Buy SRAM Components from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
