SRAM has been making moves in their Guide brake lineup and have just introduced a new tier. As the pinnacle in SRAM’s brake technology, the Guide Ultimate has a completely new, 4-piston S4 caliper, SwingLink lever cam, and carbon lever blade, resulting in a 360-gram system. If you end up having to bleed the brakes, that task is easier with the Bleeding Edge system.
I’ve been riding the Guide RSC on my Black Cat hardtail for a few weeks and absolutely love them. More on that to come. For now, see more specs on the Guide Ultimate at SRAM and holler at your local dealer for pricing. The Guide Ultimate launches in May.
