New carbon SRAM TT shifters & brake levers

SRAM, have already taken Road shifting to the next level with two innovative groupsets: SRAM Force and SRAM Rival. To further complete the product range and answer Time Trial and Triathlon needs, SRAM has developed state of the art TT shifters and brake levers. Featuring the highest quality materials and breathtaking design, the new SRAM TT shifters are the only shifters on the market using full carbon fiber levers.

With black and red anodized aluminum plugs, the pair of shifters weighs is at an incredible 138g. To maintain quality shifts across a variety of chain ring sizes, front shifting is operated on a friction mode; while the rear shifter is indexed to maintain precise and rapid shifts in all circumstances. An internal mounting system is used to make sure the new SRAM TT shifters can fit all industry standard TT bars. Only compatible with SRAM Force and Rival rear deraillleurs, SRAM’s new TT shifters will offer high performance to anyone driven to beat the wind.

To match the TT shifters to perfection, SRAM offers for the very first time TT brake levers. The sleek design combined with a full carbon fiber blade drop the weight to an incredible 99g for the pair. The very low profile and extremely light blade, does not compromise on strength or durability.

The ergonomic full carbon lever maintains the natural hand position while offering you a comfortable feel for enhanced control. Product available in June 2007.
