SRAM's 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 provides 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.

When we launched our road technology from scratch we reapplied our MTB proven SRAM 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel : derailleur movement). EA helps to simplify and stabilize the uneasy act of balancing rear derailleur hanger design, tight cog spacing, and exact cable tension. The result: the easiest index shifting system to set up—and it stays that way.
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. Allowing for up to 40 degree blade adjustment, the R2C ‘home’ position is customizable to match any rider’s fit, whether using Straight, Ski-bend or S-shaped bar extensions.
