Lightweight materials, easy attachment, and intuitive setup are key features to the 900 Aero shifters. But the real secret to the SRAM Aero shifter’s performance is its unique ability to take advantage of SRAM’s Exact Actuation™. An aggressively aerodynamic form that utilizes carbon fiber and aluminum sets the shifters apart in weight, wind resistance, and looks.
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.
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.
