SRAMs Force is a high-end, dual-pivot brakeset for road racing bikes. Cold-forged, skeletonized aluminum arms with titanium pivots for weight savings. Front and rear Short-Pull Cartridge brake pads 279g / pair ...
Strengths: power, price, as good as the same design Red calipers
Weaknesses: color, hard to clean, heavy?
These are a deal compared to the similarly designed Red calipers, which are only lighter because of titanium hardware - braking performance is the same. I just wish they made a darker color scheme option. For the price though, they are a great bargain. Lighter than similar Shimano brakes and stop just fine.

Not to bad for turning 45. But I'm going to redo test in April, an ... Read More »
I have a 2011 Scott CR1 Team with 105 cranks. I would like to get a Force BB30 crank. The CR1 has an internal Shamano BB7141 bottom bracket. Will the Rival with a new BB30 bottom bracket fit? the Sram version of the CR1 has BB30 so I am assuming it will work. Am I missing something? Thanks.Read More »
