SRAM Red hydraulic disc brakes – First look [BikeRadar]


SRAM hasn't officially announced the upcoming Red hydraulic disc brakes and matching levers, but we know they're deep in development. Now we've spotted them out in public at a local cyclocross race in Castle Rock, Colorado – not far from SRAM's brake headquarters in Colorado Springs.
It still feels as though there's some refining to do (we squeezed the levers but didn’t have a chance to actually ride them). But it looks as though they're tantalizingly close to being finished. SRAM isn't officially discussing them but several details can be ascertained just by observation.
"Right now we're not really talking about it, but it needs to be out there and tested," said Avid product manager Paul Kantor.
