For the first time ever, our legendary Code brake now wears the Ultimate crown. The full-powered stopper features a new technology to improve your cockpit aesthetic: Stealth. The all-new lever body design brings the hose closer to the bar, allowing for a sleeker, more modern ride. The proven internals remain the same, with SwingLink driving our signature feel. And for unrivaled ease of customization, Code Ultimate features tool-free Reach and Contact Point Adjust. To top it all off, a carbon blade joins our Lever Pivot Bearing technologies, so feel will remain smooth. Our best just got better.
- Stealth body design to complement our AXS cockpit
- Designed for the most heavy-duty braking needs
- Metallic pads come standard for more power and longer wear
- Our most powerful brake, utilizing our SwingLink and Lever Pivot Bearing for a fatigue-free ride
With this new caliper fluid circuitry, the bleed port has been moved to the bottom of the caliper, and all four piston bores can communicate. This way, during bleeding fluid naturally fills the caliper, resulting in an easier, more consistent bleed.
Contact Point Adjustment
Some people like the instantaneous power of a short lever throw. Others prefer the feel of a longer throw. With Contact Point Adjust, you can pick the position you want your fingers to be in when your brakes are engaged. It’s a quick and easy way to customize the feel of your brakes without having to move the pads. It’s also a way to balance both brake levers to feel exactly the same.
Squeeze a SRAM brake lever and you notice it immediately. Less deadband. More positive engagement. A new cam system requires less lever throw to push the pads toward the rotor. That’s great, but there’s more to perfect braking performance than just power. You need control. Many brake systems minimize deadband—but at the cost of modulation. SwingLink solves that with its special cam shape. When the pads contact the rotor, the leverage rate curve is flat and smooth, avoiding that “on/off” brake feel. It’s the perfect balance of power and precision.
Timing Port Closure
A hydraulic brake’s timing port is the connection between the reservoir and the lever cylinder bore. When the lever is squeezed, a cup seal passes this area and closes the port, which pressurizes the system. SRAM’s timing port closure system features durable seals and an ultra-smooth cylinder bore finish producing dependable braking power and consistency.
SRAM’s new brake lever design includes a reshaped bladder that helps regulate and reduce air bubbles. The bladder is specifically shaped to evacuate air from the lever and push the fluid exactly where it’s needed. The result is improved back-pressure relief, which produces dependable braking power and consistency.
