A number of non-electronic components have been redesigned with the introduction of Sram eTAP. There's a new crank set, a new cassette, and now the new Sram Red Aero Link brakes as well.
The Sram Red Aero Link brakes won't slow you down until you want them to. This was the main drive behind the design of the Aero Link: wind-cheating design cues allowing you to maintain as much speed as possible right up until when you want to lose some. The new patented Aero Link arm reduces the frontal surface area, while also improving the brake performance. The brakes are extremely sleek in their design, even in the smallest details: the barrel adjuster is placed in such a way
that the sleek end is pointing into the wind. Swissstop Flash Pro pads are included as standard, to really complete the entire package.
