Blurring the line.
Part of SRAM's exceptional Red Gruppo, SRAM Red Shifters close the gap between man and machine with lightning-quick shifts and unparalleled ergonomics. Everything about these shifters has been scrutinized, from the grip texture of the hoods to the separated actuation of brake and gear change operation. They work with SRAM's 11-speed drivetrain and Yaw derailleur found in the Red and Force double groups, giving you the ability to use all 22 gears, even while cross-chaining.
Carbon ErgoBlade levers allow for such snappy gear changes, you'd swear they're operating on telepathy. The key to their near-instantaneous shifting lies within SRAM's ZeroLoss technology, which engages the cable instantly without any middle-ground or lag period. This results in zero time spent waiting around for the shifters to do their job, allowing you to burst out of sweeping bends in a higher gear or instantly ease your aching knees on steep climbs with a lower selection.
Another superlative feature comes in the form of SRAM's DoubleTap shifting actuation. This unidirectional shifting action allows for both down and upshifts with the push of a single lever, eliminating the need for two cumbersome levers on the up and downshift. Different levels of force separate the actuation between up and downshifting capability, giving you a more intuitive way to shift. Braking is separate from shifting, so you won't have to worry about inappropriately squeezing the brake lever while shifting or shifting accidentally while squeezing the brake lever.
Innovative cable routing gives you the ability to cleanly run the cable both inside and outside of the bars, so you can choose the routing that meets your bar preference. Another feature tailored to your specific needs, the independent reach adjust for both the brake and shift levers means you won't have to strain your hands during braking and gear changes.
Please note, the Red Shifters include a low-friction cable and housing kit for both derailleurs.

SRAM Red 22 -- No substitute
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I'm working on my "project bike" and I bought it with "the other brand"... I was thinking I'd wait until the Spring and then upgrade the components. After about 4 rides I knew I wouldn't be able to wait. Mounted these shifters and accompanying derailleurs and my baby now shifts like a dream. IMHO best mechanical shifting on the market.
