SRAM Apex 1 shift | Brake lever including hydraulic disc brake
With the SRAM Apex 1 you can experience a new simplicity on your racing bike, gravel bike or trekking bike. And that at an unbeatable price. With just one gear lever, you no longer have to worry about the right gear combination. You can simply concentrate on driving and shift through the 11 gears intuitively. In combination with the APEX 1 11-42 cassette, the 1-fold drive is in no way inferior to a 2-fold drive with 11-28 cassette in terms of gear range. Even the steepest angle no problem with the Apex 1 group.
With the Apex 1 shift / brake levers you can use the superior properties of disc brakes on your road bike or gravel bike. The braking performance and controllability in all weather conditions is far superior to rim brakes! In addition, the brake, as a heat source, is separated from the tires, which are often sensitive. This can bring the decisive advantage, especially in borderline situations! The braking system works with DOT 5.1 brake fluid. This medium is strictly standardized and thus offers an extremely reliable function even at high temperatures caused by braking. A newly designed vent ensures easy access.
In order to lie perfectly in the hand, the shift / brake levers offer reach adjustment and optimized ergonomics for better finger reach. The 11-speed shift lever is equipped with SRAM's Double Tap shift system. With this switching logic, you can switch with just one lever with minimal effort and maximum convenience. With a light tap you shift into a higher gear, if the lever is pushed in further into a lighter gear. Equipped with SRAM EXACT ACTUATION technology, the APEX 1 shift / brake lever shifts reliably and precisely. The 1: 1 ratio between the shifter and the rear derailleur makes it very easy to adjust the circuit.
