SRAM unveils completely new Guide brakes

sram-guide-1

While much of the internet speculation as of late centered on SRAM‘s upcoming RS-1 inverted fork (more on that later), the brand unveiled it’s new line of completely redesigned brakes today, dubbed Guide.

There are three new models, a new four-piston caliper and new rotors, as well as a host of new design elements. Most notable is Swinglink, a cam inside the lever body that adjusts the power on tap – eliminating that on/off feeling. The Piggyback reservoir offers a super-simple way to manage brake fluid (DOT) and allows for a single lever body to be mounted on either side, simplifying production and the life of every mechanic who has worked a demo day.
