...the way it shifts is ....different. Left shifter > down. Right shifter > up. Both pushed is for front der.
Lets see how it is going to work.

I'm assuming that this will have to apply to this product, like every other wireless product sold in the US, which would make it a difficult sell for me...
I find Shimano more reliable in the long run.
My trust in SRAM is greatly diminished. It might be lighter from a WW perspective, but I have had several issues with SRAM that I have never had on my DA equipped bikes.

The protocol they listed in the patent is a published protocol. It's designed for industrial control in very (electronically) noisy environments. I expect it'll work pretty well in the much less noisy environment on the road.
The protocol also supports encryption. If implemented correctly would make it extremely difficult for a hacker to create something that could cause unwanted shifting. (encryption and security are my day job).
I wonder if it's lighter than current Red?
Go find the patent and then read the protocol documentation like I did. I linked to it in a post when this last came up. Then you can come back with intelligent criticism.
