SRAM unveils redesigned XX brakes

Similar to what that other big company that starts with an "S" has done, SRAM has split its top-level XX brake lineup into two parallel systems, one for racing and one for more adventurous "trail" riding.

Here they are side-by-side for a comparison.


With a complete overhaul of the internals, an updated TaperBore system and new forged aluminum caliper, XX ventures into the trail riding category while maintaining its cross country racing heritage.
The patented TaperBore closure system is experiencing a true evolution through refinement. We have developed a new bladder material, simplified the bleed port, and designed a new air-trap feature that makes the brake easier than ever to bleed.
• All new internals with high volume reservoir
• New Air-Trap Feature
• New Forged Aluminum Caliper
• New Forged Magnesium lever body
• Non-CPS caliper for increased weight savings
• New HSX rotor 140/160/180mm or HS1 140/160/180/200mm

XX World Cup

With an industry leading strength to weight ratio, the 270 gram XX World Cup defines power and control in a lightweight package. Combining an updated TaperBore system, a new two-piece forged caliper, and oversized pistons, gives the rider more stopping power with less lever pull.
• New two-piece forged magnesium caliper
• Non-CPS caliper for increased weight savings
• New HSX rotor 140/160/180mm
