When it comes to braking power and control, the folks at SRAM believe in freedom and options. There should be an absolute best solution for every type of rider and every kind of ride and that there really isn’t a one-size-fits-most when it comes to brakes. That’s the concept that led SRAM to the development of Level, a new brake designed for the needs of modern cross-country and trail riders.
As its name implies, this is our Ultimate brake design for cross-country and light trail use. We took the same technology used in the brake that Loic Bruni rode to a Downhill World Championship and packed it into smaller, sleeker, lighter-weight and XC-optimized package. The carbon-fiber level blade pulls crisp and clean thanks to pivot bearings and our DirectLink™ design. And it maintains that feel throughout the ride because it is matched to our monoblock, two-piston caliper. This caliper’s superior heat management and smooth piston actuation give you braking power exactly when and how you need it. And the BLEEDING EDGE™ design significantly simplifies fluid maintenance.
