check out these new brakes. they use the same caliper as the current trail brakes but have a new lever and new rotors. looks like easier to adjust pad contact too.

With Family Guide, SRAM has brakes designed for a rather versatile use of cross-country enduro through the hike and all-mountain. Technology that wants to forget about the problems faced by some series Avid.

Forgotten so Avid brakes, SRAM puts everything flat to start with a good foundation with the family Guide, versatile brakes dedicated both to the cross-country enduro through the hike and all-mountain.


The new guide uses the same brake caliper 4 pistons of two different diameters fitted to Avid Trail.

If the bracket is fully identical to the Trail brand models, ie 4-piston two different diameters (14 and 16 mm) the lever has been redesigned from A to Z. New expansion tank ( tank). The aluminum lever (all versions) acts through a cam "SwingLink" on the piston. Different settings, nip, tool-free brake lever are independent of the hydraulic circuit. Well done for reliability. Centerline The drive is designed to minimize vibration and noise during braking. It will be available in 140, 160, 170, 180 and 200 mm in diameter.


Sections reveal the bowels levers with Pure Bladder systems, TBC Plus and SwingLink.

The Guide will be available in three ranges of more or less sophisticated and upscale, RSC, RS and R. The weight varies slightly depending on the model 375 to 380 grams, with advertised rates 177 € for the RSC, 132 € for RS and 115 € for R.


Lever, SRAM started from scratch to solve definitively answer all the problems encountered in the past.
