The SRAM XX Disc Brake uses an all-new, two-piece forged aluminum caliper for greater stiffness and performance in a light-weight package. Two oversized pistons give you more stopping power with less lever pull for easy one-finger braking. An updated TaperBore design incorporates a new air-trap feature, which prevents potentially trapped air from entering the system, resulting in ridiculously smooth control you can count on. Super light XX carbon fiber lever blade with forged magnesium body, titanium hardware, pad contact and reach adjustments. Front and rear sold separately. Rotors are not included.
Hint for breaking-in: New disc brake pads require a certain break-in period in order to provide the full brake power. The following procedure has proved oneself: drag braking on a downhill until the brake power noticeably increases. Then let the brake rotor cool out. Afterwards do 20 full stops braking from a medium speed. Attention: the rotors get very hot, do not touch them!
