When you need pro-level performance but are running a tight fiscal ship, it's hard to beat the value of SRAM Force 22. The SRAM 22 11-Speed Shift/Brake Levers have benefitted much from the trickledown effect from Red, and to start with they've gained some new ergonomic features. ErgoFit textured hood covers have a new, gripper feel with a reduced diameter and a smoother transition to the bars. The forward bump is also larger, addressing issues in previous iterations of SRAM levers, where many riders felt their hands would sometimes slip off the bars when the roads got rough. The blade has been made larger, and now features independent reach adjust. The shift levers have retained SRAM's fabled DoubleTap technology, which has been updated for 11-speed. The shifters also have ZeroLoss shifting technology, which means that for every centimeter you move the lever, the cable moves the same amount. This eliminates the mushy, sloppy feeling we've all come to tolerate from our shifters.
