Motorsports shifting hits Time Trial & Triathlon
Features that were previously only available to high performance motorsports drivers are now available for the best Triathletes and Time Trial specialists in the world, including IM World Champion Pete Jacobs, and Mirinda Carfrae.
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 it immediately and automatically returns to the starting ‘center’. No more stress, awkward hand positions, or loss of concentration. Just focus on your search for speed.
The aero shifting blade is made of unidirectional carbon and has been reshaped to provide superior ergonomic interface and more leverage for easier shifting. 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. Rear shifting is indexed for fast and flawless gear changes, while the front shifter is available for 11 speeds in YAW™.
Function Unlike traditional ‘clocking’ bar-end shifters, the R2C mechanism returns the shifter blade to its ‘home’ position after each pull or release stroke. This spring loaded feature allows the rider to maintain the blade and hand position for optimal aerodynamics and concentration. Fit Allowing up to 40 degree blade adjustment, the R2C ‘home’ position is customize-able to match any rider’s fit whether using Straight, Ski-bend or S-shaped bar extensions.
