With the Rival eTap AXS HRD shift / brake system, you can brake comfortably and in a controlled manner from any position and transmit your shift commands via radio. In contrast to the Red AXS and Force AXS gear levers, the hoods of the Rival have become significantly flatter and narrower. This not only makes them look good, they are also compatible with all hand sizes. The textured rocker switches and rubber grips for even more control and comfort are also new. The reach adjustment on the brake lever ensures the best possible ergonomics. The integration of the Rival into the AXS platform offers you the option of adapting the switching to your personal preferences, evaluating your switching behavior or making firmware updates via the associated smartphone app. In addition to the freely selectable assignment of the shift buttons, the gearshift can also be operated in semi-automatic mode, in which the rear derailleur and front derailleur synchronize independently and you only have to choose between a lighter and a heavier gear. Ports for additional switches (blips), as they are found in the Red / Force AXS units, are not found on the Rival AXS shift levers. The two-part brake caliper, based on the award-winning HydroHC platform, is beyond any doubt when it comes to braking performance and heat management.
NOTE: The shift lever is only compatible with SRAM eTap AXS rear derailleurs or front derailleurs!
