  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought a set of these to replace a set of brakes from another manufacturer that happened to be leaking fluid from behind the caliper piston. I had replaced, re faced, pads, and replaced rotors on the other brakes before I figured out the cause of the excessive brake noise.

I grabbed a set of the SRAM Guide RS trail brakes because I have ridden the guides in the past and have loved them. None of the issues that plagued SRAM during the "Elixer" era exist anymore. These have been trouble free and offer tons of power and modulation. I would buy them again and again.

Let me know if you have any questions about them?

Powerful brakes with consistent modulation. Stack up to the XTs in terms of performance. These don't feature the contact point adjustment the RSC brakes have, but they feel great at their factory setting.

Great Brakes

I had my first ride on these yesterday and they amazed me! I've never had a break that was so responsive.

I was having issues with my Shimano brake system squealing. Found out i needed to replace the entire system due to spraying oil from behind the piston. I can finally ride my bike and not be heard miles away. Love these brakes.

Fantastic braking

Sram has redeemed itself with me. I've avoided sram brakes for years until I tried the Guide Brake. Two piston design provides confidence inspiring brake performance. Great lever feel. Easy contact point adjustment. Lever pull adjustment a breeze. Bleeding the brakes is not an issue with sram's pro bleed kit.

Great brakes!!

These brakes are the best around in my opinion. The nicer models have some contact adjustments that can be nice, but I chose the simple RS model and they have been awesome.
