Wireless electronic shifting and hydraulic disc braking: the best of both worlds. The SRAM Force eTap AXS™ HRD shift-brake system integrates top technology into an efficient package and offers AXS™ for easy personalization.
One new feature that's really exciting with the Force group is its AXS integration. Once you connect the group to the AXS app via Bluetooth on your smartphone or tablet, you can easily personalize the groupset including button customization, numbers of up or downshifts when the buttons are held down, as well as sequential and compensating shifting. Sequential shifting reduces redundant gear ratios and maintains a better chainline by automatically shifting the front and rear derailleurs to the optimal gear as you up and downshift, allowing you to focus on the ride. This option is great for those already used to a 1x setup. In this mode, however, you still have full control over the front derailleur to shift as needed. Compensating shifting simply shifts the rear derailleur to a self-selected number of shifts after making a front shift, so your change in cadence isn't as drastic. This is something we already do with mechanical shifting but it's nice when the system's electronics can do it for us.
The HRD shift/brake levers offer wireless electronic shifting with hydraulic disc braking. eTap's simple and intuitive shifting logic returns, with large shifting paddles that are textured for an improved feel and offers two Blip ports each for remote shifters. The lever's fit and pad contact preferences can be easily adjusted with SRAM’s Contact Point Adjustment and Reach Adjust technologies.
