G2 R Disc Brake

Why We Like The G2 R Disc Brake

Modeled after SRAM's gravity-oriented Code brakes, the G2's offer "mini-Code" power in a trimmed-down package. This makes them a great option for our trail bikes because they still offer impressive stopping power and 4-piston calipers, without any extra weight. These G2 R disc brakes are the entry-level model, but still offer the same power, modulation, and tool-free reach adjustment as the higher-end offerings.

Not bleeding edge. Otherwise great

I've used it several times

Very good stopping power and feels good. When installing, I was not able to find a a bleeding edge compatible port, ended up just doing a quick-and-dirty top bleed since I'd had the setup ready for bleeding edge. Riding fine, very adjustable, It's a step up from the formula brakes that I broke
