Introducing SRAM RED® eTap® HRD

Control. It’s what makes speed possible. Because the less time you spend slowing down, the more time you can spend enjoying that hard-earned speed.

Introducing SRAM RED® eTap® HRD. Where SRAM’s most advanced road hydraulic braking platform meets the precise wireless electronic shifting of eTap®. Simpler shifting, better braking — all in the name of true advancement.

Utilizing SRAM’s new HydroHC™ brake platform, SRAM RED® eTap® HRD combines the unconditional braking performance and control of hydraulic disc brakes with the adjustability of conventional rim brakes.

With both Contact Point Adjustment™ and independent Reach Adjust™, regardless of hand size or brake feel preference, riders can achieve their ideal brake setup.

When this adjustability is matched with SRAM’s unparalleled brake modulation control and advanced heat-management technology, the most harrowing descents become merely line choice exercises.

We’ve also simplified brake setup and maintenance with SRAM RED® eTap® HRD. Our new Stealth-a-Majig™ brake hose fitting paired with a revised hose barb and new threaded olive make initial setup fast and easy. And our Bleeding Edge™ brake fluid-management technology enables quick and consistent brake bleeds.

Add to all of this the intuitive, smooth, and consistent shifting of SRAM RED® eTap® and you have the best of both worlds: Absolute control over braking and shifting, right at your fingertips.
