When SRAM eTAP wireless shifting debuted, it offered traditional drop bar levers with shift levers in the usual spot and aero bar end Blip buttons connected to a Blipbox for TT and triathlon bikes. The Blips were the same rubber coated low profile buttons provided with the standard levers and could be placed anywhere. They even added BlipClamps and BlipNodes mounting clips to make it easier. Now, though, they’ve added dedicated all-in-one shifter button type for TT/tri called Clics.
Clics put a simple “clicker” style button on the end of the aero bar that mounts flush with the ends and lets you shift without having to change your grip or hand position. It pops into place without tools, but you’ll need be able to run the wire inside the bar to connect them to the Blipbox. They’re available with 500mm and 650mm wires, will fit bars with an inner diameter of 19mm – 21.5mm, and weigh just 32g per pair. Retail is $110 (€120 / £95), available in July 2016.
