Your guide to superior stopping.
SRAM has seriously stepped up its brake game with the new Guide platform, and the SRAM Guide RSC Brake tops the line. Leaving no stone unturned in the quest for stopping supremacy, the RSC boasts every feature SRAM could cram into it: "R" stands for lever Reach adjustment, "S" for the new SwingLink lever design, and"C" signifying Contact point adjustment capability.
Whereas the more basic Guide R brake relies on the proven DirectLink lever design, the RS and RSC models step it up with SwingLink. SwingLink utilizes a specially shaped cam that not only requires less travel and force to produce proportional amounts of pressure, it minimizes the "deadspot" of lever travel. Paired with the new cup-seal timing port closure system, this means that you receive perfect modulation immediately, in that once the lever is squeezed, a cup seal swiftly passes this area and closes the port, pressurizing the system and forcing the pads to the rotor. The RSC's contact point adjustment feature is found just behind the lever attachment to the master cylinder, making it quick and convenient to dial in the brake's feel.
The caliper paired with the Guide RSC is the powerful 4-piston, dual 14- and 16mm diameter model used in the current Trail Brake systems, and it comes with SRAM's steel-backed organic pads. The forged aluminum construction means long-term durability and ease of pad removal via the top-loading design.
The SRAM Guide RSC Disc Brake comes as a Front/left or Rear/right lever and caliper configuration, with the package-completing Centerline Rotor sold separately. Additionally, the lever assembly is Matchmaker-compatible, meaning you're able to run your various controls off one tidy lever clamp.
