ACROS A-GE hydraulic shifting

Plenty of talk on electronic shifting on road bikes but, over in mountain bike world these are are getting some attention. Acros are fairly well known for other high grade components using ceramic bearings. Across have also turned their attention to shifting and taken a route less travelled. The shifting is hydraulic.

The intended use is downhill but, I think these would be just fine in a lot of situations. Would be interesting to see if they could make road shifters to fit drop bars. Are hydraulics are more reliable as a means of gear shifting over cables? Hard to know. The real beauty is that they are totally sealed units, which are perfect in a muddy environments like mountain biking or cyclocross. I think they look stunning and extremely well made.

The only downside is cost, at a whooping $3,306!! So if your a lotto winning downhiller…
