SRAM AXS Rocker Paddle Shifter Upgrade

SRAM AXS Shifter Upgrade

Nearly all of our staff rides AXS so it wasn’t hard to get input on the new AXS Rocker Paddle upgrade – from Garrett@BikeCo.com:

“The new SRAM AXS Rocker Paddle reconfigures the AXS shifter to have a more conventional feel. It’s new design brings two more traditionally placed “buttons” to the controller in replacement of the original design which was more of a flat panel requiring the user to push their thumb up or down. With the first few units already installed on bikes, our clients and staff are fans of the stippled contact surface and the new layout…or should I say old layout?”

Riding Tips & Tricks

I recently asked the guys to get me some of their favorite riding advice. I’m not sure if Jack was poking fun at me or not, but great advice either way!

“Have you ever found yourself getting fatigued on a long climb?

 

Here are a few things I do that may help you:

1. I make sure I’m hydrated before I start and stay hydrated along the way. I find that it’s easy to forget to drink while taking in amazing views!

2. The tendency for us on a long grind is to get in our “groove” and pedal away in the same gear. 
I find that shifting up a few gears and getting out of the saddle for a bit is a good way to break the monotony, and give one set of muscles a break. 

Also shifting my position on my saddle allows me to switch the constant strain on one muscle group.

 

3. And lastly, I’ve learned to maximize my momentum, much like on a downhill, by utilizing berms, obstacles and dips to “spring” off them and keep moving forward using just a bit more upper body effort.

Basically, the key mentality here on a long climb, is to use challenges to your advantage! “ Jack@BikeCo.com
