Shift expectations.

Ideally, shifting is one of those things you hardly even notice, but experience tells us all that isn't always the case. Things get out of whack, drivetrains get worn, and all of a sudden it's a battle to get into the right gear, generally when your need to shift is most pressing. SRAM's ZeroLoss technology provides instant reaction from your shifters and cables, so there's no lag time between pulling a lever and changing gears, and it automatically adjusts trim to ensure smooth, quiet drivetrains that feel just about perfect. DoubleTap shifting, cribbed from SRAM's top-shelf Red groupset, makes for short, quick shifts, and SRAM's reach adjust design lets you move the levers closer to or farther from the bars to suit your hand size. The aluminum levers are light and tough, and SRAM designed them with two different cable routing options, so you can run cables along the inside or outside of your bars for a streamlined look and killer efficiency.

Unanswered Question

Does the right lever come with any housing or inner cable?

Excellent shifting action

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Clean, precise shifting. Easy action and a perfect level of tactile feedback so you know when you've completed a shift. The double-tap shifting sounds counter-intuitive, but turns into second nature after a few shifts and I appreciate how clean it keeps the look of the levers. Pre-installed shift cables, sensible brake cable installation, and multiple cable routing options make them a snap to set up if you're a DIY mechanic.

In short - these don't look, feel, or perform cheap. Excellent choice for adventure rigs, commuters, or upgrades to older bikes. If you care about great shifting performance but aren't too concerned about weight, these are the ticket!

Is this compatible with hydraulic brakes?

The picture shows a right side shifter. Is the the right side shift/brake lever for 85 dollars?

Will these shifters work with an X9 type 2 ten speed rear derailleur? (I want to run a 36t in the back)

Are these actually carbon levers? Because...

Are these actually carbon levers? Because on SRAM's website is says the levers are aluminum... I think the carbon levers start on the Force level.

Aluminum for sure.

Someone better correct that in the last paragraph then...

These are made of forged aluminum. Here is a link to the SRAM website http://www.sram.com/sram/road/products/sram-rival-22-doubletap-mechanical-shifters
