The SRAM Guide RS rear brake ensures powerful and progressive braking in All Mountain and Freeride. Still improved in its 2017 version, this model includes the S4 caliper which until now was only present on the high-end model of the Guide brake line, the Ultimate!
Equipped with 4 pistons and a forged aluminum body, the Guide RS caliper benefits from the Heat Shield technology which reduces the heat transfer of the pad towards its body during braking, for an always better management of high temperatures. The caliper is compatible with the Bleeding Edge kit which facilitates the bleeding of the hydraulic circuit. The caliper has been modified and equipped with new seals to improve its waterproofness.
The lever is compatible with the Matchmaker and MMX systems. The stroke adjusts without tools. Its drive ensures precise braking control thanks to Direct Link technology. The shape of the PiggyBack tank and the expansion tank facilitates bleeding and helps the consistency of braking. The Swing Link eliminates the dead zone while operating the lever. The Guide RSC brake has a contact point to be adjusted according to the situation.
