New SRAM Red AXS Groupset

SRAM officially unveiled their new Red AXS groupset today, which they claim is the "lightest electronic group you can get, 153 grams lighter than the previous generation." The most obvious change is the brake levers, due to repositioning of the hydraulic brake master cylinder. According to Cycling Weekly, "The reason for the old shape, in part, was because the master cylinder sat vertically in the top of the lever hood. This has been moved down within the body of the shifter, making a massive difference to both comfort and ergonomics. It also enables the brake lever to pivot closer to the top of the shifter."

Is this new SRAM group better than Dura Ace? What are your thoughts?
