SRAM Yaw™ technology changed front shifting forever, eliminating the need for trim. The SRAM RED® eTap® front derailleur makes a good thing better by executing front shifts confidently and quickly over our proprietary wireless communication protocol. The system optimizes Yaw™ adjustments as needed throughout the shift range with no need for rider input.
- SRAM RED® eTap® shift logic
- Wireless connection via AIREA™ network for fast and clean installation
- Yaw™ Technology eliminates the need to trim
- Designed to work with SRAM X-GlideR™ 11 -speed chainrings
X-GlideR Chainrings are designed for an optimized shifting performance with the Yaw front derailleur. The stiffer rings (5mm 7075-T6 aluminum CNC-machined) feature upshift rivets with an advanced design adopted from SRAM XX. CNC machining allows for precision control of each tooth shape, ramp, and nearly every shifting feature of the chainring. The chainrings, chain, and front derailleur are designed as a single integrated system for optimized performance.
With a front derailleur cage that 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 and precise, delivering an unmatched performance advantage in front shifting.
All of the underlying tech in our new SRAM RED eTap groupset, such as wireless shifting, advanced battery power management, and mechatronics technologies, are meant to serve one ultimate purpose: to facilitate the most intuitive and consistent shifting available. This shift logic is called eTap. Right lever makes it harder, left lever makes it easier, both levers shift the front derailleur. Simple, unmistakable, and intuitive.
Utilizing 128-bit encryption, eTap shift signals are transmitted and received in accordance with SRAM’s proprietary wireless protocol known as AIREA. Each time an eTap groupset is paired, a new encryption code is generated and assigned to the components in this group to ensure complete shifting security.
