What future electronic wireless

Test riding on Sram Red eTap  Gear with future electronic wireless.

I had the pleasure to ride on a Supersix Evo Hi-Mod Red Etap Cannondale in the beautiful  country side of south  Tuscany where I live.

Four full days of riding and testing the future electronic wireless shift:  I explored Val D’orcia: Pienza Montalcino, Montepulciano, Chianti area: Gaiole, Castellina and all Crete Senesi around Rapolano: Asciano, San Giovanni d’Asso and Monte Oliveto Abbey.

Cannondale Supersix Evo with Sram eTap

I rode so many km in the famous undulating Tuscany hills, feeling like a child  with a new toy to play with: a Sram electronic wireless shifting system.

I enjoyed a lot and it was a very GOOD  experience. It was  supposed to be simple and I confirm the shift is so easy to use.

Change more with less effort and spend less time doing it and believe me that when you ride hills it’s all a shift!!

What i also like about  the electronic wireless future is that there are no cables on the shifter so the bike looks very clean.

When I check the bikes before  rental  I usually test the sound of the gear, I use to say: gear works like a “violin” and in this case I can say  electronic gear is like having  a Stradivari violin!!!

The only issue is the price, still very expensive!
