Stop fast and shred.
Despite its relative youth, the new line of SRAM Guide brakes has already earned praise for being one of the powerhouses of the disc braking world, offering impeccable consistency and power across the range. The SRAM Guide RSC Disc Brake Set with Centerline Rotors sits near the top of the Guide line, offering some of the best stopping power in the industry.
The Guide RSC features SRAM's SwingLink technology, utilizing a special cam shape to create an unbeatable combination of pad engagement and modulation for a silky-smooth, fast-responding braking experience without any of the off-putting dead spots that plague some disc braking systems. SwingLink pairs with a new cup-seal timing port closure system for consistent modulation across the braking action and predictable functionality the second you pull back the lever arm. For quick customization, a contact point adjustment feature lets you easily dial in the bite point to meet your individual preferences and ride needs.
The caliper boasts a 4-piston, dual diameter design and ships with compound pads for powerful speed scrubbing out on the trail. It also features user-friendly top-loading pads and pad contact adjustment so you can spend more time playing in the dirt and less time hunkered down in the garage with a pile of bike tools.
To complete the system, the SRAM Guide RSC Disc Brake Set includes Centerline Rotors with venting lines down the middle of the braking track that reduce overheating and increase braking consistency compared to non-vented rotors. These rotors feature a 12-spoke design that limits lateral bending or warping under heat stress for stable, predictable, and downright awesome braking every time you need it.
