At SRAM, they know that if a technological advancement clutters the experience, it shouldn't be called an advancement at all. Because it's a bicycle. It's supposed to be simple. To make something elegant to the point where it removes what's in the way... that's advancement. And that is the standard SRAM held themselves to while developing their first electronic shifting system. It's called SRAM RED eTap.
Featuring SRAM's advanced shift logic (right lever makes it harder, left lever makes it easier, both levers to change the front ring) with SRAM RED eTap you'll shift more, with less effort and spend less time doing it. Shifting has never been more intuitive or as easy as this.
And SRAM RED eTap is engineered to go the distance. It has been rigorously and successfully tested for years on the professional and WorldTour level. And now, it's ready for the rest of the world. Are you ready to shift forward?
SRAM RED eTap System Overview
SRAM RED eTap WiFLi™ Rear Derailleur 2x11 - medium
The SRAM RED® eTap rear derailleur executes shifts the instant you demand it, with military precision. Wirelessly. It's easy to set up, clean in appearance and delightfully uncomplicated. Mechanical necessities such as a carbon pulley cage, ceramic pulley bearings, and anodized alloy artfully blend with proprietary electronic advancements to deliver a 243g (with battery) shifting wonder.
Wireless connection via AIREA network for fast and clean installation. Designed to work with SRAM PowerGlide and PowerdomeX cassettes.
They say suffering is inevitable. With SRAM WiFLi™, it doesn’t have to be. The SRAM RED® eTap® WiFLi™ rear derailleur accommodates a wider gear range - up to a 32t cassette - to help you spin up the toughest of climbs. Because the hardest way up isn’t always the fastest.
SRAM RED eTap Front Derailleur
SRAM Yaw technology changed front shifting forever, eliminating the need for trim. The SRAM RED eTap Front Derailleur makes a good thing better by executing front shifts confidently and quickly over the proprietary wireless communication protocol. The eTap shifter optimizes Yaw adjustments as needed throughout the shift range with no need for rider input.
Wireless connection via AIREA network for fast and clean installation. Designed to work with SRAM X-GlideR 11-speed chainrings.
SRAM RED eTap Shifters
SRAM RED eTap features race-car-inspired paddle shift logic that virtually eliminates mistaking upshifts for downshifts, while keeping shifting precise, fast, and easy. It's a logic that is simplified for speed: right lever makes it harder, left lever makes it easier, both levers to change the front ring. Our revised ErgoFit™ controls seamlessly connect rider and machine with Reach Adjust™ to fit any hand. You'll shift more, with less effort and spend less time doing it. Carbon ErgoBlade levers and large SRAM eTap paddles provide positive controls for rider input.
Wireless connection via AIREA network for fast and clean installation. Revised ErgoBlade levers provide confident control. eTap logic and positive feedback paddles eliminate shifting mistakes.
SRAM RED eTap Battery Charger
eTap batteries are literally a snap to remove and charge.
Just flip the tool-free battery latch up and slide the battery up and out of the derailleur. Then snap the battery into the USB powered charger and connect the charger to any USB power source or A/C USB adaptor.
A full charge takes just 45 minutes to complete.

All of the underlying tech in our new SRAM RED® eTap groupset such as wireless shifting, advanced battery power management and mechatronics technologies are all meant to serve one ultimate purpose, to facilitate the most intuitive and consistent shifting available. This shift logic is called eTap. Right lever makes it harder, left lever makes it easier, both levers shift the front derailleur. Simple, unmistakable, and intuitive.
Exact Actuation helps to simplify/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.
SRAM's WiFLi™ technology accommodates a wider range of gears than a standard short-cage road derailleur. Compared to a triple chainring setup, it provides faster shifts and significant weight savings.
Utilizing 128-bit encryption, eTap shift signals are transmitted and received in accordance with SRAM's proprietary wireless protocol known as AIREA. Each time an eTap groupset is paired, a new encryption code is generated and assigned to the components in this group to ensure complete shifting security.
The front derailleur cage 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, more precise, and combined with the new Red crankset and chainrings, delivers an unmatched performance advantage in front shifting.
