I'm not sure how eTap measures up against EPS for shift speed, but it's definitely slower than Di2, and SRAM readily admit that. The slightly slower shift speed was a conscious decision in order to gain a little bit more battery life, given the individual component batteries don't pack the same charge capacity as the integrated Di2 & EPS systems.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

Could someone theoretically 'hack' this system and on the upper slopes on the Ventoux deliberately shift and spoil the race for a favorite in the TDF?


Whilst a "takeover" hack would require a great deal off effort/knowledge a simple jamming of the tech would be relatively trivial if you got close enough with a powerfull enough transmitter.

I test rode both the etap and di2 version of my bike and really didn't notice the speed difference in shifting.
I also preferred having seperate batteries for each derailleur.
If one was to run low I can swap them around or have a spare in my saddle bag and not worry about it.
Been riding with etap now for a few months and am still loving it.
I don't think I could ever go back to a manual setup
