Well, SRAM went and did it again. When Red was introduced a few years back, it set a new standard for performance. But the all-new 2013 SRAM Red shift/brake lever set takes that performance to a whole new level. The new Red group introduced some of the most radical innovations to mechanical shifting in a while, so the new levers had to be engineered to help execute those new style of shifts. SRAM has reengineered these new levers to have an improved ergonomic design with improved lever throw, more comfortable hoods, a smaller body with a narrower grip profile, and new larger ErgoBlade carbon levers for easier shifting from the drops. If you absolutely have to have the best in performance, you can't go wrong with these.
