SRAM Guide The new SRAM Guide RSC is full of performance optimization details that turn any trail into an old friend. SRAM started from scratch to create the perfect combination of brake reliability and control. The brand new SwingLink technology provides more power, velvety smooth dosing, smaller empty travel and a feeling of leverage like you have never experienced before. Trust on steep slopes. Dominance of narrow curves. Drive each trail as if you know it by heart.
Pressure point setting Allows setting of the point at which the brake actually acts. This allows you to determine the position where your fingers are when the brakes are applied. This means that the brake force can be perfectly adjusted to the most comfortable finger position without moving the brake pads. MatchMaker compatible Matchmaker saves weight and space on your handlebar. This system accommodates Avid brake levers, numerous SRAM trigger shifts and RockShox PushLoc buttons in the form of a light and neat clamp.
PiggyBack Reservoir The brake fluid reservoir in SRAM's current lever design is designed for optimum performance and easy handling. The PiggyBack reservoir provides a simple and safe solution for controlling the brake fluid and also allows the levers to be mounted on both sides - so you can swap your levers on the handlebars and brake as easily as on a motorcycle.
PURE - Bladder SRAM's new brake lever design includes a new bubble shape called Pure, which regulates and reduces air bubbles. The bladder is specially shaped to pump air out of the lever and transport the liquid exactly where it is needed. The result is improved back pressure relief for reliable and constant braking performance. Grip width adjustment If you can control your ride with just one finger, it is extremely important to adjust the brake handles exactly to the unique shape of your hands. That's why all SRAM brake levers offer a grip width adjustment.
SwingLink When you pull a new SRAM brake lever, you'll notice the difference immediately. A shorter empty path. Optimised actuation of the brake linings. The new cam design requires a shorter lever travel to push the brake pads towards the brake disc. That's nice, but for perfect braking performance you need more than just power. They need control. Many brake systems offer a shorter free travel - but at the expense of modulation. SwingLink solves this problem with its special cam shape. When the brake pads touch the brake disc, the force is modulated and the "stagnant" feeling is avoided. This creates the perfect balance between force and precision. Timing Port Closure The synchronisation opening of a hydraulic brake is the connection between the reservoir and the main cylinder bore. When the lever is used, a cup cuff passes through this area and closes the opening, putting pressure on the system. SRAM's new TPC Plus system for closing the synchronisation port features durable seals and an ultra-soft cylinder bore surface for reliable and consistent braking performance.
