If you are looking for perfection -- you've come to the right place.Lighter, sleeker, more aerodynamic and more powerful, the new SRAM Red Aero Link brake set is SRAM's most advanced brake set yet. Featuring a cam-actuated single-pivot design instead of the traditional dual-pivot functionality, these brakes deliver high-performance stopping power with incredibly precise modulation. The minimalistic design reduces overall weight and SRAM's engineers took every opportunity to reduce the caliper's frontal profile to give them exceptional aerodynamics.
AeroLink arm utilizes cam action to amplify braking power and exhibits a smaller frontal area than dual-pivot designs
SRAM gave the Red Aero Link Brakeset head-to-toe aerodynamics, including the indexed four-position quick release, the bladed barrel adjuster, low-profile pinch bolts, and recessed spring tension adjusters
Wider clearance accommodates modern wheelsets
Aero pad retainers are lighter, and include SwissStop Flash Pro pads
Comments about Sram Red Aero Link Brake Set - 2013:
Beautiful set of brakes. Got these to complete my new red groupo and I couldn't be happier. They are quite pricey however. Not much to say on performance at the moment as I have only taken them out on the road once for about 4 miles before the ice started to make me uneasy. In the trainer their stopping power is unmatched, I don't even have to engage them to stop the bike! Will do a follow up review after I get to put some more road miles on them.
