Avid Juicy/BB7 Disc Brake Pad Avid Juicy/BB7 Disc Brake Pad
This rectangular pad set, enough for one brake, works with all of the Juicy hydraulic brakes and the cable-operated BB7. Since you never want to ride metal on metal, it's always good to have two sets of pads around, so you don't need to hustle to find pads when you suddenly realize you need to replace your old pads the Friday night before a big weekend of riding. Included in the kit are two pads and a spreader spring for one brake. Choose organic or metallic compound.

Campagnolo Alloy TT Brake Levers Campagnolo Alloy TT Brake Levers
Campagnolo's arsenal of time trial equipment includes these Alloy TT Brake Levers. They're designed to be installed in the ends of any modern time trial or bullhorn base bar. They offer a sleek aerodynamic profile along with a functional detail that Campagnolo brake users will appreciate. Like their Ergopower levers, they have a tension release on the lever to open the caliper and facilitate quick and easy wheel changes. Another detail that we really like is that the levers have torsion springs that keep them snug and rattle-free rather than relying on the tension in the cable system to do the job (in our experience, it never does). This way, all you'll hear as you enter your personal world of pain is the wind whistling over your helmet and the whoosh whoosh of your disc wheel on the pavement. The Campagnolo Alloy TT Brake Levers are right and left specific. They're marked on the brake tension release button. They come with Campagnolo stainless steel inner wires, housing, and ferrules.

Campagnolo Athena Skeleton Dual-Pivot Brakes Campagnolo Athena Skeleton Dual-Pivot Brakes
As cyclists, we tend to make considerable sacrifices in pursuit of lower weight, but trading safety for weight just seems boneheaded to us. That's why we're pleased that Campagnolo is now offering dual pivot calipers in the front and rear on the Athena Skeleton Dual-Pivot Brakes. They do gain a few grams over a dual/single set, but the extra stopping power may mean the difference between a close call and a bad end to a ride. Dual-pivot brakes have a greater lever length on both sides, so they produce more power on the wheel's braking track. Previous setups have used dual-pivot up front but a single-pivot model in the back. Two dual-pivot brakes means that you've got maximum stopping power for maximum safety. This is further complemented by the forged skeleton design, which was and remains focused on stopping power, ease of use, and lightness. Its strength is due to the fact that no part of its body is machined. The Athena brakes don't have the orbital adjustment of the Chorus, Record, and Super Record branded brakes, and they weigh a claimed 19 grams more than the heaviest of those three. Other than that, they enjoy all of the functionality of Campy's other brakes, including the special compound brake pads and the safety tab that keeps them in place. The tab is in the back half of the shoe and is released with a little leverage from a small, common screwdriver.

Campagnolo Chorus 11 Skeleton Dual Pivot Brakes Campagnolo Chorus 11 Skeleton Dual Pivot Brakes
Braking isn't the most attractive element of cycling. We prefer the speed of a tucked solo effort or the hard work and big payoff of a long climb, so we tend to relegate braking to the back-burner while daydreaming about our bikes at work. Still, brakes are your first defense against personal injury while riding, so we do take them very seriously. With the new option to run Chorus Skeleton Brakes with Dual-Pivot calipers in the front and rear, we know that Campagnolo does, too. Dual-pivot brakes have a greater lever length on both sides, so they produce more power on the wheel's braking track. Previous setups have used dual-pivot up front but a single-pivot model in the back. Two dual-pivot brakes means that you've got maximum stopping power for maximum safety.

They also hang on to the safety tab that hangs on to your pads, keeping them from accidentally falling out. The tab is in the back half of the shoe and is released with a little leverage from a small, common screwdriver. While the Chorus brakes' skeleton design makes them lightweight, they gain some weight by omitting the alloy and titanium hardware of Record and Super Record models.

Campagnolo Record 11 Skeleton Dual-Pivot Brakes Campagnolo Record 11 Skeleton Dual-Pivot Brakes
If we've ever had any complaint with Campagnolo's Record 11 Skeleton Brakes, it's that they were only dual-pivot in the front. There is a slight trade-off for weight, and some will claim that the extra stopping power of a dual-pivot rear brake is unnecessary, but the extra stopping power of two dual-pivot brakes is something that, if you ever need it, you'll definitely be glad to have. Dual-pivot brakes have a greater lever length on both sides, so they produce more power on the wheel's braking track. Previous setups have used dual-pivot up front but a single-pivot model in the back. Two dual-pivot brakes means that you've got maximum stopping power for maximum safety. This is further complemented by the forged skeleton design, which was and remains focused on stopping power, ease of use, and lightness.

They also benefit from some trickle-down technology, featuring the same serviceable ball-bearing design, orbital adjustment, and aramide-reinforced elastomer brake pads as Super Record.

Magura USA MT7 Next Magura USA MT7 Next
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but Magura's new MT7 Next hydraulic disc brakes prove that the venerable German dirt-hound hasn't stopped learning just yet. The company's been making mountain bike brakes as long as anybody, and the new MT7 is extra light but has enough stopping power to keep gravity maniacs and enduro chargers more than happy. Carbotecture SL brake body, which uses a superlight and strong composite reservoir to save weight, was cribbed from Magura's MT series. A lever made of forged aluminum weighs almost nothing and has a highly ergonomic design for easy use with one or two fingers, and has tool-free bite-point and lever throw adjusters so you can dial in the braking setup of your dreams, so you don't lock up your brakes without really meaning to. Best of all is the four-piston forged alloy caliper. Inspired by Magura's killer motocross and superbike brakes, it uses individual brake pads for every pistion--that's four brake pads, if you weren't counting--which gives you unparalleled modulation and stopping power. The setup also employs Magura's magnetiXchange system, which uses a high-power magnet for pad retention, meaning the pads are easy to swap when they need to be replaced. The M7 is also designed to run on Magura's Royal Blood mineral oil, which is highly resistant to overheating and easier to use than standard brake fluids.

Thanks to incorporating the recently adopted dual-pivot design into the 105 brakes, the Shimano 105 BR-5800 Brake Calipers have even more consistent stopping power than before. Rather than using the mounting bolt as the pivot bolt, Shimano now uses a plate with a separate center bolt to attach to the frame. In this way, the brake arms are now centered above the wheel, which means equal braking pressure to the rim when the lever is pulled. In addition to more stopping power, the new BR-5800 brake calipers also allow you to run tires in widths up to 28 millimeters.

It's ok for your legs to fade at the top of a long climb -- after all, you've got the descent to recover. When it's your brake pads fading between switchbacks at high speeds, though, it can result in an over-the-guardrail disaster. Replacing your road disc brake's pads with Shimano's BR-RS805/RS505 Flat Mount K02S Resin Disc Brake Pad helps reduce the risk of inconsistent, noisy brakes that gradually fade during heavy use. Since they're resin instead of metal, the pads also provide a much wider range of stopping power, so you can modulate effectively on those long descents but still throw the emergency brake when necessary.

Shimano Dura-Ace BR-9100 Brake Calipers Shimano Dura-Ace BR-9100 Brake Calipers
Smoother, more responsive levers do little if the components they work with don't improve alongside them, so we weren't surprised to see Shimano revisiting its dual-pivot rim brake design while quietly overhauling Dura-Ace for this year. The resulting Dura-Ace BR-9100 Brake Calipers make their entrance boasting a new steel bridge between each caliper arm pivot, which reduces flex for more consistent braking power when you're slamming on the levers. The bridge contributes to the calipers' enhanced modulation and more fluid, linear behavior across the braking curve, working in tandem with the levers to provide responsive stopping power whether you need to lightly temper your speed or pull up quickly to miss a crash. On the aesthetics side, Shimano subtly reduced the gap between each arm to create sleeker lines that align with the rest of the groupset's classy styling.

Shimano Dura-Ace BR-9110 Direct Mount Brake Calipers Shimano Dura-Ace BR-9110 Direct Mount Brake Calipers
A brake's primary job is to stop, so we typically consider any technology that makes it better at that an upgrade. Shimano's Dura-Ace BR-9110 Direct Mount Brake Calipers do just that, widening the window for modulation and increasing total stopping power. Those properties amount to a great big plus in our book of braking, and the fact that they also don't add any weight by doing so adds yet another plus. In fact, they actually lose weight compared to single-bolt calipers because the direct-mount design requires less material in the brake caliper and the frame, eliminating overall weight despite the addition of a second bolt. Tolerances are also improved all around: the caliper can sit closer to the frame and tire clearance is increased. A lower profile is especially useful in back as it lets the brake hide from the wind more effectively, but better tire clearance benefits both front and rear by accommodating the trend of growing tires. We're currently seeing 25mm as the standard, but we wouldn't be surprised if that bumped up to 28mm in the coming years.

Shimano SLX BL-M7000 Disc Brake Shimano SLX BL-M7000 Disc Brake
Shimano's SLX groupset has been celebrated as the everyday rider's groupset since it was released, so when Shimano announced news of a full revamp, the company immediately piqued our interest. Introducing both functional and aesthetic upgrades, Shimano redefined what's expected of a workhorse groupset. We'd be thrilled to spec a new do-it-all trail frame with a one-by SLX drivetrain, adding the Shimano SLX BL-M7000 Disc Brake to give us the reassurance that we'll have long-lasting stopping power for every unknown situation we can't help but dive into. Taking inspiration from its pricier XT and XTR drivetrains, Shimano aimed to shave weight and enhance responsiveness with the BL-M7000. Sure, older SLX brakes functioned well enough, but these have been cleaned up to function even closer to their pricier siblings. They'll still weigh more than XT, but the gap has been narrowed without a matching increase in price. A more streamlined master cylinder saves weight on the main caliper body, while slimmer clamps reduce clutter on the bars. Shimano revisited its Servo Wave cam system when updating the levers, making subtle alterations to improve power and responsiveness when you squeeze them fast ahead of a steep, unexpected switchback. Though they are not included with this brakeset, the Centerlock rotors weren't spared the wave of Shimano's wand, returning with an alloy carrier and new shape that enables them to more efficiently dissipate heat.

Shimano Ultegra 6800 Brake Calipers Shimano Ultegra 6800 Brake Calipers
Going balls to the wall is fun until you take a corner too fast and end up limping home, resembling a zombie-movie extra. To save you from looking like a card-carrying member of the undead hordes, Shimano redesigned the Ultegra 6800 Brake Calipers, with plenty of inspiration from the industry-leading Dura-Ace, to offer improved stopping power, more sensitivity, and smooth, easy action. Traditionally, Shimano's brakes have used a single-pivot design, but the Ultegra 6800 uses a dual pivot, which allows the caliper to be placed symmetrically over the tire. Combined with a cable that runs directly out of the middle of the caliper, this gives the 6800 balanced tension, so braking forces are distributed evenly to both sides of the caliper for smoother, more reliable braking. The arms feature a friction-reducing twin bearing system that allows them to pivot extremely smoothly, so you get instant and sensitive feedback from even light touches to your brake levers. Shimano also designed the Ultegra 6800's arms to lie closer to the rim, which provides more sensitivity with less effort. Feathering your brakes will be a silky smooth experience, and hard braking won't require the grip strength of a gorilla. Even the new brake cables have smooth low-friction design. The Ultegra 6800 is also set up to accommodate thin brake pads, perfect for riders rocking wider 28mm tires.

SRAM Code R Disc Brake SRAM Code R Disc Brake
For years, SRAM's Code brakes were the go-to for everyone from recreational shuttle lappers to competitive gravity nuts. The latest generation of Code R Disc Brakes doesn't change the reason why; instead, it reinforces it by adopting the same cam mechanism that made the new Guide models such big hits among the all-mountain crowd. The cam's excellent modulation is paired with a larger reservoir and pistons in order to increase stopping power for applications that need it--think gravity rigs, e-bikes, and anything else where weight isn't a consideration. The reworked Code R is a big brake for big rigs. Increased power aside for now, the cam mechanism adopted from the Guide model is the real star. It alters the amount of force applied as the lever is pulled deeper and the calipers engage the rotor. The result is that, when you first touch the lever, the caliper jumps to the rotor; however, after biting, the cam modulates the force being applied, helping to prevent lock-ups and, well, enabling the kind of modulation we need on loamy courses or while lightly scrubbing speed. Compared to those Guide brakes, the Code's pistons are larger (15 and 16mm vs the Guide's 14 and 16mm) and it features 30% more volume in the reservoir. The result is more stopping power that stays honest for longer during heavy use--SRAM even goes so far as to credit the new Code with 15% more power than the older model. If you're used to more trail-oriented brakes, the increased stopping power is alarming at first, but it's impossible to argue against it when it's still on-point long after other brakes would have begun to fade. The Code also features the same heat-dissipating technology that's general across SRAM's brake line--most notably the stainless steel Heat Shields and the improved heat management of SRAM's DOT 5. 1 hydraulic fluid. SRAM claims that the latest generation of DOT resists boiling for three times longer than its predecessor, DOT 4, and the Heat Shield inserts serve as a fire...

The result is the brand's superlative gravity brake, and it sheds a cool 100g of claimed weight from its predecessor without losing any of the power.

SRAM Force 1 Hydraulic Disc Brake SRAM Force 1 Hydraulic Disc Brake
The SRAM 1 Hydraulic Disc groupset brings not one, but two major SRAM innovations to the table: the ingenious 1x11, single-chainring drivetrain platform, and road- and 'cross-ready hydraulic disc brake technology. Bolting 1 to your bike effectively turns your rig into a 'cross weapon, and the SRAM 1 Hydraulic Disc Brake system itself is a big part of how and why 1 is the most advanced groupset in cyclocross. To reboot its original road and cyclocross hydraulic braking systems -- which were already ahead of their time -- SRAM pulled apart every molecule of their anatomy to find room for improvements. The lever body, housing the reservoir and master cylinder, was reconfigured for more efficient internal spacing while at the same time boosting strength and stiffness, resulting in solid, consistent performance, regardless of braking or weather conditions. The master cylinder piston itself was also completely revamped, receiving an all-new bore design and new seals, after being subjected to thousands upon thousands of testing hours in every temperature and performance setting imaginable. The goal was absolute reliability, and the new system delivers. SRAM was far from finished with updates, however. The new higher-capacity fluid bladder -- the part of the system designed to maintain braking feel and consistency in compensation for pad wear -- was also redesigned to improve fluid flow, so your brakes feel as great brand new as they do after a season of racing. On the action-end of the line, the caliper spring was re-engineered for more even pad contact and smoother retraction, translating into a more consistency and control in hand, regardless of riding conditions. Finally, the shift paddles were trimmed slightly to be both lighter and more ergonomic, and cyclocrossers especially will appreciate the new shape that allows for greater clearance when wearing thicker gloves.

SRAM Force 22 Hydraulic Disc Brake SRAM Force 22 Hydraulic Disc Brake
When SRAM's line of hydraulic disc road brakes hit the market, they shook things up, setting the new standard for what road brakes could do. SRAM, however saw some room for improvement. The brakes were torn all the way down, picked apart, and completely reconfigured for huge improvements in stopping power and reliability. SRAM started with the lever body, which houses the reservoir and master cylinder. It was redesigned for more internal spacing and a boost in strength and stiffness. The resulting performance is solid and consistent, regardless of weather conditions. The master cylinder piston was redesigned as well, in order to achieve absolute reliability. It succeeded. SRAM then redesigned a new higher-capacity bladder to improve fluid flow to give your brakes the ideal feel, whether you're riding them on day 1 or day 1001. The caliper spring was also redesigned for increased pad contact and smoother retraction. Finally, the shift paddles were trimmed to reduce weight and increase comfort.

SRAM Force Brake Calipers SRAM Force Brake Calipers
We love it when technology and design starts to move downward in a company's offerings. To wit, SRAM's Force Brake Calipers now look, feel, and function much like the company's top-tier Red components. They're skeletonized in design, just like Red, but use stainless hardware instead of titanium, and the brake shoes don't have the cutouts that the Red versions do. Other than that, it's quite a similar brake -- the same adjustments can be made, and they're spec'd with SwissStop pads manufactured specifically for SRAM.

SRAM Force22 Shift/Hydraulic Rim Brake SRAM Force22 Shift/Hydraulic Rim Brake
If you're longing for the superb stopping power of SRAM's Red hydraulic systems, but finding it hard to scrape together the dough, the SRAM Force 22 Hydraulic Road Rim Brakes are virtually identical but for the use of stainless steel hardware bits instead of the titanium used on Red. Otherwise, all the same performance awaits via the carbon levers, redesigned lever housings, and all the other details that make the new SRAM road hydraulic brakes so amazing. To reboot its original road and cyclocross hydraulic braking systems -- which were already ahead of their time -- SRAM pulled apart every molecule of their anatomy to find room for improvements. The lever body, housing the reservoir and master cylinder, was reconfigured for more efficient internal spacing while at the same time boosting strength and stiffness, resulting in solid, consistent performance, regardless of braking or weather conditions. The master cylinder piston itself was also completely revamped, receiving an all-new bore design and new seals, after being subjected to thousands upon thousands of testing hours in every temperature and performance setting imaginable. The goal was absolute reliability, and the new system delivers. SRAM was far from finished with updates, however. The new higher-capacity fluid bladder -- the part of the system designed to maintain braking feel and consistency in compensation for pad wear -- was also redesigned to improve fluid flow, so your brakes feel as great brand new as they do after a season of racing. At the rim, where the action happens, the smooth action of the powerful caliper translates into incredible confidence and control, allowing you to push harder and let the reins fly looser than they ever have. Opening wide enough to accommodate even the widest rims on the market (such as Zipp's Firecrest rims), the brakes are easily installed with SRAM's Connectamajig, allowing simple, clean hose connection without the hassle you would think would be necessary.

SRAM Guide/X0 Trail Disc Brake Pad SRAM Guide/X0 Trail Disc Brake Pad
In the chaos of spring, singletrack trails can take sudden turns for the worst. In these cases, SRAM's Guide/X0 Trail Disc Brake Pads help to ensure that your rides end well by ending with you grabbing the brakes, not diving into a tree. We recommend the organic pads for lighter cyclists with a cross-country focus who don't ride their brakes. Alternatively, larger cyclists and downhillers will appreciate the long-suffering action of the sintered pads. They take a little longer to catch but maintain stopping power even while heating up from hard use.

SRAM Level TLM Disc Brake SRAM Level TLM Disc Brake
We have some bad news. You may want to be sure you're seated for this. SRAM is effectively retiring its XO brake models. This saddens us because they've been like a good friend at the bar for so long, stopping us when maybe we've gone a bit further than we should; however, the bright side is that the X01 brake is being replaced with the new Level TLM Disc Brake. The Level TLM recreates the upgrades field tested on the enduro-specific Guide RSC brakes in a low-weight platform designed for XC use. Compared to the Guide RSC, the Level TLM shaves a claimed 25g by cutting the pistons from four to two and replacing the tool-free reach adjust with a design that saves weight but does require tool intervention. The discerning weight watcher will notice that, despite these savings over its Guide equivalent, the Level TLM gains a claimed 46g in weight over the X01 brake it's essentially replacing; however, we contend that it's worth it for the Level's functional improvements. Instead of the two-part body used for the X01 brake and almost every other member of the newly minted Level family, the Level TLM houses its pair of 21mm pistons in a forged, single piece caliper for net gains in stiffness and braking consistency. The TLM model does make some material concessions to the top-end Level Ultimate. Instead of titanium hardware, the TLM features redoubtable steel; instead of the carbon lever used on the Ultimate and Xo1 models, the TLM rocks alloy. The only other difference between the TLM and the Ultimate is that the former substitutes a bushing instead of bearings to govern the lever action. The Level design features a host of improvements over the occasionally disappointing Avid Elixir. Among these is the notoriously finicky bleeding of the Elixir, and the Bleeding Edge redesign we first saw in the Guide brake line carries over to the Level. Bleeding Edge involves a complete re-imagination of the port and fluid path. It requires a specific adapter, but that adapter ens...

SRAM Level Ultimate Disc Brake SRAM Level Ultimate Disc Brake
We've been running SRAM's recently released Guide brakes on everything from four-inch 29ers to six-inch enduro sleds without any complaints, but with the release of the Level Ultimate Disc Brake, SRAM has come up with a solution to problem that we didn't even know we had. The Level Ultimate adapts many of the Guide Ultimate's features with a minimalistic design that sheds unnecessary bulk and drops from four pistons to two, marking a clear delineation between the Guide Ultimate's all-mountain and enduro designation and the Level Ultimate's XC and trail focus. While the Level Ultimate does weigh around 28g more than the XX1 model it's effectively replacing, the claimed weight of 318g for lever, caliper, and hardware knocks a full 42g off of the Guide Ultimate. The most weight-conscious XCers might be put off by the weight gain compared to XX1, but we contend that it's worth it for the Level's functional improvements. Instead of the two-part body used by almost every other member of the newly minted Level family, the Level Ultimate houses its pair of 21mm pistons in a forged, single piece caliper for net gains in braking consistency and heat management. It's also the only Level model to include a carbon lever and titanium hardware, features that account for a claimed 38g weight difference compared to the Level TLM, the Ultimate's closest in-house competitor. The lever action is also smoother, as the Ultimate upgrades the TLM's bushings to full-blown bearings, making it the only Level brake with bearings. Like with the all-mountain/enduro-specific Guide brake, the Level design features a host of improvements compared to the oft-maligned Avid Elixir. Among these is the notoriously finicky bleeding of the Elixir, and the Bleeding Edge redesign seen on the Guide brakes carries over to the Level. Bleeding Edge involves a complete re-imagination of the port and fluid path. It requires a specific adapter, but that adapter ensures a tight seal to keep air out and fluid...

SRAM Red 22 Hydraulic Rim Brake/Shifter SRAM Red 22 Hydraulic Rim Brake/Shifter
In the quest for the ultimate road rim brake, SRAM pioneered the hydraulic rim brake. Even SRAM will admit, however, that the first design left a bit to be desired in the areas of performance and reliability. SRAM knew it was onto something, though, so it went back to the design room and started from scratch. The result is the Red 22 Hydraulic Brake, and it's a peach.This isn't an upgrade of the original SRAM hydraulic road brake--it's a completely new design. The new lever body, which houses the reservoir and master cylinder, features more efficient internal spacing than the original, while at the same time it boosts strength and stiffness for more consistent performance and more powerful braking. The master cylinder piston was also completely redesigned with an all-new bore design and new seals, and the brake was given a higher-capacity fluid bladder. The goals were absolute reliability and precise modulation, and after thousands and thousands of hours of testing, the new system delivers on that goal.

SRAM Red Aero Link Brake Caliper Set SRAM Red Aero Link Brake Caliper Set
The SRAM Red Aero Link Brake Caliper Set positions the Red braking experience apart from the herd with reduced weight and higher braking power. As the name implies, it also has a sleek front profile that boast increased aerodynamics over its Red predecessors and current cousins in the Force and Rival families. The Red calipers utilize SRAM's patented AeroLink arm, hinging on a tiny pivot joint that hides behind the svelte calipers and multiplies braking power and modulation without increasing required lever squeeze force. This unique innovation allowed SRAM to significantly reduce the caliper's frontal area, evident in the simplified cable routing and single arm in comparison to the former dual-arm triangular structure still found in the Force and Rival calipers. In addition to the reduction in front surface area, SRAM attended to every detail of the caliper to ensure maximum aerodynamic efficiency. From the spring adjusters to the cable clamp to the caliper's overall face, no detail was overlooked in its potential to reduce drag. This attention to detail is apparent in tiny details such as SRAM's redesign of the oft-overlooked shaping of each caliper's two-position barrel adjuster, which now takes on a shark fin profile to literally slice through the wind. SRAM accounts for in-ride brake adjustability with an easy to access four-position indexed release lever that makes quick positioning changes a breeze but sits stealthily out of the wind when fully locked. The SRAM Red Aero Link Brake Caliper Set is compatible with SRAM road shift-brake levers and will accommodate tires up to 28mm in width. Each brakeset includes SRAM's aero pad retainers and ships with SwissStop Flash Pro pads.

SRAM Rival 1 Brake Lever SRAM Rival 1 Brake Lever
2016 witnessed a rebranding of SRAM's ever popular Force CX1 groupset as Force 1, and an expanded focus of one-by drivetrains for gravel and road applications. With that expansion, SRAM also introduced a Rival 1 drivetrain for those of us pining over one-by simplicity and looking for a more budget-conscious option. Boasting much of the same technology as its more expensive sibling, Rival 1 delivers exceptional functionality for cyclocross, road, and gravel excursions. While the SRAM Rival 1 Brake Lever weighs in a bit heavier than its carbon-endowed Force 1 counterpart, its forged aluminum lever brings with it a significantly lower price point without sacrificing SRAM's renowned precision--not to mention the improved odds of emerging from a one-on-one scuffle with gravel unscathed. The Rival 1 Shift Lever utilizes the same Reach Adjust technology found in SRAM's top-line offerings to provide a customizable reach distance, which keeps the lever perfectly in reach no matter your hand size. The hoods also feature ergonomic shaping for an extra bit of comfort over rough roads.

The pioneer of road-ready hydraulic disc brake systems, SRAM is confident that taking a set for a spin will leave you wondering how you were ever satisfied with anything less. To be clear, the company will be the first to admit that its first generation of the brakes needed some refinement to be as great as they could be, but all bets are on this new 2015 stuff: leaner, cleaner, and as reliable as any mechanical braking system. The SRAM Rival 22 Hydraulic Disc Brake represents the entry-level price point into the road hydraulic game, but with all the performance of the more expensive systems intact. To reboot its original road and cyclocross hydraulic braking systems -- which were already ahead of their time -- SRAM pulled apart every molecule of their anatomy to find room for improvements and make them even better and more reliable.

SRAM Road Disc Organic Brake Pad SRAM Road Disc Organic Brake Pad
The benefits of SRAM's Organic Road Disc Brake Pads include gains in the same areas that initially attracted us to disc brakes: engagement immediately translates to stopping power and there's virtually no breaking-in period. They also address concerns about overheating brakes by redirect heat into the rotor, not the caliper, which keeps the hydraulic oil cool and maintains consistency during long periods of continual braking. If you're coming to disc brakes from carbon rim brakes, then you'll be familiar with these pads' tendency to wear more quickly than sintered pads ' they are, after all, made from organic materials bonded with resin for a build that's similar to carbon-specific rim brake pads. Braking power also benefits from an occasional sanding to remove the glaze-like finish that builds up over time, but the extra attention to detail means more responsive braking for those moments when the alternative is a taco'd fork. Finally, we should note that some of SRAM's mountain bike calipers--the Level Ultimate and Level TM models--also use these pads, so classifying them as road-only is a bit limiting. But c'est la vie in an industry of ever changing standards.
