SRAM S-900 Direct Mount Rim Brake

Claimed to deliver great power and superior feel, the S-900 is the first direct mount brake in the SRAM lineup. The synchronizer, which adjusts the pads for simultaneous engagement, is an offset design rather than centrally located. This location greatly reduces splay force, or energy that is dissipated into the frame/fork rather than the caliper.

The result is improved modulation and power, no sponginess, and a snappy return. The S-900 will see WorldTour action on the bikes of Katusha Alpecin, and will be available in March 2018.

Tire clearance is a generous 28mm, and pads are set wide to clear modern wide rims. A set weighs a svelte 326g. They are compatible with all SRAM mechanical brake levers, including SRAM RED eTap. The new brakes will be sold individually, are front and rear compatible with fork and seat stay mounts only, and come with SwissStop Flash Pro pads. Price is $125.
