Ideal for Cross-Country and trail use, it benefits from technology such as an expandable bladder and TPC Plus™.
Technology Highlight(s): TPC™ Plus, DirectLink™
Intended Use: XC/Trail
Tri-Align Caliper Positioning System: No
Tool-Free Pad Replacement: Yes

DirectLink™: SRAM’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 5.1™: Heat 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.
