SRAM Level Mountain Bike Disc Brake and RotorSRAM’s Level MTB Disc Brake + Rotor may fall into the more budget range of brakes, but it still manages to pack a punch, as it features most of the same technologies as their higher end Downhill/Enduro “Guide” brakes. Ideal for Cross-Country and trail use, it benefits from technology such as an expandable bladder and TPC Plus. Features: Body Material: Aluminium Lever Material: Aluminium – Stamped Caliper Design: 2-piston monoblock caliper Recommended Rotor type: 1-piece G2 CleanSweep Pad: Steel-backed organic Fluid: DOT 5.1 Mount: Ambidextrous Adjustment: Tool-free Reach Adjust, Contact Point Adjust, Banjo Adjust Special Features: Contact Point Adjust, Piggyback Reservoir, DOT 5.1 fluid Technology Highlight(s): TPC Plus, DirectLink Pad/Holder: Top-loading Intended Use: XC/Trail Tri-Align Caliper Positioning System: No Tool-Free Pad Replacement: Yes Stainless Hardware: Yes Weight: 430gTechnologies:DirectLinkSRAM’s DirectLink lever design produces a solid, positive feel the second you squeeze the lever to engage the brake. It offers a no-nonsense solution to give you precise control.PiggyBack Reservoir:The brake fluid reservoir on SRAM’s latest lever design is optimised for both 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 moto style without hassle.Expandable Bladder SRAM’s new brake lever design includes a reshaped bladder that helps regulate and reduce 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. TPC Plus (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 to pressurise the system. SRAM’s new timing port closure system, called TPC Plus, features durable seals and an ultra-smooth cylinder bore finish producing dependable braking power and consistency.DOT 5.1Heat is an enemy of any brake system, so advancements in heat management mean advancements in your ride. SRAM found that DOT 5.1 takes almost three times longer to boil than DOT 4, thus allowing flawless, fade-free performance in even more extreme conditions.Buy SRAM Components from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
