Guide RE is SRAM's optimised braking solution for the exciting category of E-MTBs and easily copes with the higher average speeds, more intensive use and higher weight of the engine and battery. It combines SRAM's proven Guide R brake lever with a powerful 4-piston caliper based on the code brakes optimised for gravity-riding. Guide RE offers real, useful control on the track - optimum braking power and modulation means that speed can be controlled on any terrain and in any situation, both uphill and downhill.
SRAM's DirectLink lever design provides a solid, positive braking feel when the brake lever is pulled - an uncompromising solution for precise control.
Heat is the enemy of any brake system. Better heat management also makes your journey much safer. We found out that with DOT 5.1 it takes three times longer than with DOT 4 until the boiling point is reached. This ensures smooth and steady braking under even more extreme conditions.
Compatible with MatchMaker and MMX
With Matchmaker you save weight and space on your handlebar. Matchmaker accommodates Avid brake handles, SRAM trigger shifts and various RockShox adjustment knobs in the form of a lightweight and neat clamp - a dream come true for all handlebar space savers worldwide.
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.
Grip width adjustment
The fit and ergonomics of the brake lever is a very personal matter. The riders have individual positioning preferences as well as unique hand sizes and finger lengths. The lever can be adjusted very easily with the grip width adjustment - for maximum control with only one finger.
Timing Port Closure
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.
