SRAM Guide RS MTB Disc Brake 2016
2016 SRAM Guide RS Disc Brake
The SRAM Guide RS Disc Brake sits in the middle of the range between the Guide R and the Guide RSC. Should you want more power and adjustability than is found on the Guide R but do not require the precision-tuning and lightweight, carbon parts found on the Guide RSC, then the RS is the best option. Trail, Enduro and Freeride Ready 4 Piston Caliper Design Although this brake is an exceptional option for XC, the RS is an all-around more-than capable Trail, All Mountain, Enduro and Freeride brake. Featuring the SwingLink pad engagement, which when the lever is pulled, the pad swings into engagement with the disc rotor. This provides a direct braking power-delivery, which is boosted by the 4-piston design.

There's not much worse than having your brakes break, especially if it's whilst you're braking hard! My brake section lists all types of bike braking components, from levers to rim cantilevers, v-brakes, callipers and full disc systems. Or if you just need a new set of cables, then I have a page for that too!

SRAM began life in Chicago in 1987, named after it's founders Scott, Ray And Sam, and is known primarily as a manufacturer of drivetrain and braking components. It's first revolutionary product was the twist action GripShift, which became available in 1988, with the MTB version released in 1991. In 1995, they launched their first ESP rear derailleur, which featured a 1 to 1 cable actuation ratio. The X.O drivetrain products were released in 2001, marking the introduction of the trigger shifter, and a year later, MTB Suspension pioneers RockShox was acquired. A year later Avid - a MTB Disc Brake company - was also acquired, giving SRAM more market share of the MTB industry. By 2006, a focus was shifted to producing road components in addition to their MTB stable, with the launch of Force and Rival groupsets. The following year, Doubletap was introduced, enabling users to switch gear in either direct using a single shifter. This steady growth was sustained, and over the years SRAM acquired several more cycling household brands, such as Truvativ (Chainsets and components), Quarq (power meters), Sachs (drivetrain components) and Zipp (carbon fibre goodies!).
