SRAM Red 22 11 Speed Hydraulic Disc Brake Shift Lever and Caliper. For the ultimate in both shifting and braking performance, look no further than the SRAM Red 22 11 Speed Hydraulic Disc Brake Shift Lever and Caliper. You get the amazingly crisp, precision shifting of SRAM's top of the line Red 22 11 speed shiftbrake levers coupled with the superb stopping power of SRAM's hydraulic disc brakes a world apart from conventional mechanical road rim brakes. The Red 22 levers feature an all new master cylinder that delivers remarkable braking power and modulation that puts all other systems to shame. The action is nearly instantaneous which makes braking through hairpin turns on screaming descents a dream. The fully sealed hydraulic system is easy to set up thanks to SRAM's new Connectamajig Road system. This makes coupling the levers to your hydraulic brake system fast, easy and convenient. The hoses can be routed internally, and the levers are compatible with the SRAM Red 22 components. The SRAM Red 22 hydraulic levers are compatible with both the Red hydraulic rim and disc brakes, so you're not married to either system. This particular package at Nashbar features hydraulic disc brakes that are awesome on disc compatible road bikes, but really shine in cyclocross and gravel grinder setups. As they're virtually impervious to the elements and mud, it's easy to see why these are the go to brake option for cyclocross racers. But it's not just hydraulics alone that make these levers stand out. They also feature all the ergonomics and shifting capacity of standard SRAM Red 22 levers. The SRAM Red 22 hydraulic shifters use ErgoDynamic technology to make these the most comfortable and best performing levers out there. The brake lever has been made slightly longer than previous SRAM road shifters, so it's easier to reach from the drops. The levers also feature independent reach adjust that allow the lever reach to be customized for a variety of hand sizes. Additionally, the shape of the hoods has been completely redesigned with a smaller diameter and a higher top shape to increase rider control and improve finger wrap. Cap it off with a redesigned clamp that allows for better fit and adjustment with modern carbon and ergo bars, and you get one of the best feeling levers ever made. And of course, the SRAM Red 22 hydraulic shift levers incorporate SRAM's esteemed DoubleTap technology which uses just one paddle to execute both up and down shifts. Coupled with ZeroLoss technology, DoubleTap always delivers crisp, accurate, and sure shifting with every lever throw. The front shifter is designed specifically for use with the SRAM 22 Yaw front derailleur, and it is able to deliver more leverage for easier shifting, even under load.
