What’s it going to take to ride that line? It's steep and rocky. You've passed it a hundred times - but not today. With the all-new SRAM Guide R, you have the power. Proven 4-piston calipers give you smooth, one-finger control. Features like Reach Adjust let you dial it in just right. And Guide perfectly complements other SRAM components and gives you flawless performance on every ride.
With Matchmaker you save weight and space on your handlebars. This system accepts Avid brake levers, numerous SRAM trigger switches and RockShox PushLoc buttons in the form of a lightweight and neat clamp.
The brake fluid reservoir in SRAM's current lever design is designed for optimum performance and ease of use. The PiggyBack Reservoir offers a simple, failsafe way to manage brake fluid, and also allows for ambidextrous lever placement—so you can switch your levers on the handlebar and run them motorbike-style without hassle.
PURE - Bladder
SRAM's new brake lever design incorporates a new bladder shape called Pure that regulates and reduces air bubbles. The bladder is specifically shaped to evacuate air from the lever and push the fluid exactly where it’s needed. The result is improved back-pressure relief, which produces dependable braking power and consistency.
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. This is exactly why all SRAM brake levers offer a grip width adjustment.
Timing Port Closure
A hydraulic brake’s timing port is the connection between the reservoir and the master cylinder bore. When the lever is squeezed, a cup seal passes this area and closes the port, which pressurizes the system. SRAM’s new timing port closure system features durable seals and an ultra-smooth cylinder bore finish, producing dependable braking power and consistency.
