Archer Components DBR Remote –– designed by Trailside Creative.

Design Objectives

To create a shifter that integrates Archer Components universal wireless shifting technology into an off the shelf TRP Hylex RS brake lever.

Concept Exploration

After analysing the user requirements, ergonomics, existing componant layout, and looking at the available space we had to fit everything in, we started sketching out ideas of how to make everything work.


Many prototypes were made to support the design process, testing parts breakup, ergonomics, and aesthetics.


A fully functional wireless shifter that looks, feels and performs better than the TRP’s own Di2 shifter kit.
