It a single lever per side, like SRAM’s TT Shifter 900 and 500 models, but instead of having a set location for each cog or chainring the lever returns to a central position after each shift. So the lever is always pointed straight ahead it generates less drag while remaining easily accessible. Making you faster and gear change easier.
The 1090-R2C shifter has a carbon fibre lever, aluminium body and composite insert mount, with titanium fasteners. Making it turely stunning.
Features, that only Formula One drivers could enjoy, are now available for the best Triathletes and Time Trial specialists in the world: Michellie Jones, Chris Lieto, Lance Armstrong and Fabian Cancellara. No need to bend your hands anymore, SRAM’s new R2C (Return to Center) bar-end shift lever allows you to start in your best aerodynamic position and keeps you there! After every shift the shifter immediately and automatically returns to the starting ‘center’. No more efforts, stress and loss of concentration. Just focus on your search for speed.â€šThe narrow shifting blade is made of unidirectional carbon and has been shaped perfectly to fit between the thumb and the first finger. The inside titanium bolt enables you to adjust the initial position of the shift lever within a 40 degrees range for a 100% customized fit. Front and rear shifting are indexed for precise and flawless gear changes. Two trim positions at the front ensure the best possible chainline. The SRAM R2C time trial shifters weigh in at 175g a pair.
