SRAM BB7 SL & SlickWire Road Brake XL Cable Kit Announced

News

The new BB7 Road SL (RSL) cable actuated disc brakes, for both Cyclocross and Road, are a lightweight upgrade from the original king of cable stoppers, the BB7. The RSL‘s upgrades start by saving 25 precious grams per wheel with Ti hardware, alloy backing plates, and lighter organic friction pad material. Falcon Grey anodizing makes matching the BB7 RSL to any of SRAM’s road groupsets that much easier. The RSL is available aftermarket with 140 or 160mm HS1 rotor and titanium rotor bolts.

SRAM SlickWire Road Brake XL Cable Kit

The SRAM SlickWire Road Brake XL Cable Kit optimizes BB7 Road SL performance: reinforced compressionless housing means perfect response and modulation, plus it’s 30% lighter than traditional wound brake housing. The XL Cable Kit also works perfectly for larger road frames with rim brakes. Includes aluminum SRAM ferrules, rubber frame protectors and PTFE coated 1.6mm cables.
