TRP Quadiem G-Spec Brakes at Eurobike 3

No major updates to speak of, but a proven, race-winning brake at TRP along with Aaron Gwin's DH machine.


You’re looking at the TRP Quadiem G-Spec brakes which have been raced to victory under Aaron Gwin and received a solid 4-star review by Vital MTB.

TRP Quadiem G-Spec Highlights

  • Four-piston forged caliper
  • Steel pistons with ceramic inserts for improved heat dissipation
  • Indexed tool free reach adjust
  • Available in polished anodized silver
  • CNC caliper cooling fins
  • Split hinge clamp
  • I-Spec b, I-Spec ll (XT and XTR only) or matchmaker compatible with correct TRP adapter to match shifter
  • Ergonomic dimpled and drilled alloy lever designed by Aaron Gwin
  • 2-piece rotor (sold separately)
  • Brake weight: 312g (front, verified, without rotor)
  • Rotor weight: 170g (2-piece, 203mm)
  • MSRP: $199 per side, excluding rotors and adapters

TRP doesn’t have anything major to reveal at Eurobike, but they plan on showing an e-bike version of the Quadiem at Taichung Bike Week in October. The difference between the standard MTB Quadiem and the e-MTB version is that the rotor has been beefed up from 1.9mm thickness to 2.2mm. The caliper is also widened to accommodate the thicker rotor size. That extra bit of material helps slow down some of the beefier e-bikes dropping in to the market these days.
