The core of brake performance is consistency. Reliability. Trust. And with G2 R, we focused on offering a premium value without compromising the heart of the operation. This brake gives riders the G2s famed “Mini-Code” power and a whole suite of SRAM standard features at an absolutely unbeatable value.

SRAMs Direct Link lever design produces a solid, positive feel the second you squeeze the lever to engage the brake. It offers a no-nonsense solution to give you precise control.
POWER RESERVE GEOMETRY
Your fingers pull in a straight line, but brake levers move in an arc. Bottom line: Your fingers typically want to slip off the ends of the levers as you pull. We designed all of our brakes with the industry's lowest X-Factor (that's the distance from the center of the handlebar to the center of the lever's pivot). That reduces the lever's inward travel, creating an arc that's closer to your finger's natural motion and more power is delivered to the brake lever. And, the cool part is, every SRAM and Avid brake lever has it.
Brake lever fit and feel is a personal thing. Riders have individual positioning preferences, as well as unique hand sizes and finger lengths. Reach Adjust makes it easy to adjust your lever for maximum one~finger control for everyone.
S4 LIGHT-WEIGHT 4-PISTON CALIPER
The all-new S4 Caliper features four Machined and Moly-coated aluminum pistons for consistent rollback and easy set-up, Heatshield insulation and Bleeding Edge porting and adapter technology for easy bleeds.
Squeeze a SRAM brake lever and you notice it immediately. Less deadband. More positive engagement. A new cam system requires less lever throw to push the pads toward the rotor. That's great, but there's more to perfect braking performance than just power. You need control. Many brake systems minimize deadband but at the cost of modulation. SwingLink solves that with its special cam shape. When the pads contact the rotor, the leverage rate curve is flat and smooth, avoiding that "on/off" brake feel. Its the perfect balance of power and precision.
TIMING PORT CLOSURE
A hydraulic brakes timing port is the connection between the reservoir and the master cylinder bore. When the lever is squeezed, a cup seal passes this area and closes the port, which pressurizes the system. SRAM's new timing port closure system features durable seals and an ultra-smooth cylinder bore finish producing dependable braking power and consistency.
