SRAM Red Brake Caliper Set (AeroLink)
Your brakes shouldn‘t slow you down until you squeeze the levers. That‘s why the new SRAM RED Brakeset has been created with a host of wind-cheating features to make the brake body more aerodynamic, helping you keep your speed until you decide to stop.
Top Features of the SRAM Red Brake Caliper Set (AeroLink)
- AeroLink arm amplifies braking power while reducing frontal area
- Aero design extends to the shape of the indexed four-position quick release, the bladed barrel adjuster, low-profile pinch bolts, and recessed spring tension adjusters
- Wider clearance for modern wheelsets
- Lighter, aero pad retainers carry SwissStop Flash Pro pads standard
- Weight: 240g
- Technology: AeroLink
- Material: Cold-Forged Aluminum Arms, Aero Designed, Pinch Bolt, SwissStop Pad Compound
The new patented AeroLink arm reduces frontal area while improving braking performance and modulation. The brake body has been sculpted to provide a sleek aerodynamic profile to the wind. Even the smallest details, like the barrel adjuster, point away from the wind. And to finish off the package, SwissStop Flash Pro pads come standard with the brake.
AeroLink Features: The patented Multi-Link arm multiplies brake forces without having to squeeze the brake levers any harder. As a whole, it provides improved power, better control and increased modulation. All this packed in a very elegant and lightweight design.
About Rim Brakes
Rim brakes for bikes use the sidewall of the rim to reduce speed, this is done by a pad on either side applying friction against the rim, which reduces your momentum. Road brake callipers have been redesigned over the years and now use a system called 'dual pivot' which means the brake arms pivot off centre to apply a higher amount of pressure on the rim to increase your stopping power. Most manufacturers use dual pivot callipers on the front and rear, but some Campagnolo brakes use a traditional single pivot on the rear to 'balance' the braking power, the logic behind this is that as you brake your weight shifts on to the front of the bike and as much as 75% of the braking force is applied to the front.
