Why We Like The SRAM G2 Ultimate Disc Brake
SRAM's G2 Ultimate Disc Brakes offer top-of-the-line stopping power suited for aggressive trail riding, when stopping power is key but weight is still a concern. The G2 Ultimate brakes pair technology from the previous Guide Ultimate, like 4-piston caliper and carbon fiber levers, but in an even lighter package. The contact point adjustment dial lets us fine-tune the bite point of the lever pull, and reach adjustment dials let us adjust the lever blade positioning for comfort.

- I've put it through the wringer
Great modulation with lots of bite when you need it. Not one if the brakes that are either on or off. True mini-codes.

G2 Brake Broke
- I've used it several times
Indeed, felt solid, great trail brake. I really appreciated no "wiggle" play in the lever. But, first season, had simple uphill wet root slip and the bike, with zero velocity, laid down. And well, the brake lever snapped, right at the hanger where it attaches to the bars. super simple and snaped straight in two.
