All Power. All Control. All Maven.

Maven is the absolute most powerful brake we’ve ever made. Usable power for efficiency and tunability. Extreme power for elevated speed and control on ever-more demanding terrain. Maven gives you the power to progress. The boundless power of confidence. The power of more endurance and less fatigue, letting you leverage subtlety and consistency to open the aperture of your abilities. Maven. New powers to go ahead.


More power

Maven produces nearly 50% more power than one of the most capable brakes ever, SRAM Code. While it’s tempting to focus on this fact alone, Maven is about more than brute force.

Maven less effort

Less effort

More important than overall power is usable power. With Maven, it takes 32% lighter input force at the lever to generate the same amount of power as Code, reducing fatigue and boosting control for massive bike park days, rowdy DH race terrain, and long enduro stages. Ride harder, and longer, Maven delivers the best of both worlds.

Power in surplus

With four caliper pistons measuring 19.5mm and 18mm, there’s no way around it: Maven caliper pistons are simply huge, providing more force against the pads for more friction with less effort.

Better ratio

Huge caliper pistons mean nothing unless the ratio of piston size in the lever is designed to work with them. Power is about the relationship between these piston sizes, and Maven delivers a superior optimization of this ratio.

Maven’s surplus power makes it the go-to for the literal extreme of the sport. But with all that power, you can also tune it down. Think of it like volume. You might want to max it out and listen at full power, or turn it down and enjoy subtlety and precision. More available power gives you more options.
To beat heat, harness heat.
The common misconception is that heat is a brake’s worst enemy. The fact is, heat is essential. For a brake to be powerful and consistent, it must retain enough heat in the system but avoid quick fluctuations between hot and cold. It’s an art. An art where Maven shines.

It starts with seals

In the caliper, Maven’s piston seals use a proprietary material that retains its properties to maintain air-tight sealing regardless of extreme braking heat or low atmospheric temperatures. These remarkable heat-tolerant seals also enable Maven to overcome the past weakness associated with mineral oil, and use mineral oil for its advantages. Take on the most extreme terrain and longest descents with a consistent feel, run after run, ride after ride.

Stiffness is power.

Four bolts for power

Measure any brake caliper under power and you’ll find flex. Maven’s four caliper body bolts aren’t just for show. They contribute to lossless power at the caliper, translating to a solid feel in the lever, befitting its power.

Bottom loaded stiffness

Maven brake pads load from the bottom. Why? This crucial design feature helps achieve the stiffness required to deliver this kind of power.

Progressively powerful

All-New SwingLink

Optimized for Maven, SwingLink delivers a rate of leverage that changes throughout the lever stroke. The farther you pull along the arc, the more power Maven sends to the pistons. This progressive power delivery offers unrivaled control. As opposed to the binary characteristic of an “on/off” feel. Which is really no “feel” at all.
