Both shift and brake levers on the Rival platform are alloy, as opposed to carbon, and the mounting hardware for the entire system is stainless steel, as opposed to titanium, but otherwise, it's all the same hydraulically actuated goodness at a lower price point.

The lever body, housing the reservoir and master cylinder, was reconfigured for more efficient internal spacing while at the same time boosting strength and stiffness, resulting in solid, consistent performance, regardless of braking or weather conditions. The master cylinder piston itself was also completely revamped, receiving an all new bore design and new seals, after being subjected to thousands upon thousands of testing hours in every temperature and performance setting imaginable. The goal was absolute reliability, and the new system delivers. SRAM was far from finished with updates, however. The new higher capacity fluid bladder the part of the system designed to maintain braking feel and consistency in compensation for pad wear was also redesigned to improve fluid flow, so your brakes feel as great brand new as they do after a season of racing.
