SRAM RED® Brakeset


Security at your fingertips with a fresh look to compliment SRAM RED eTap componentry. SRAM RED brakes won’t slow you down. Until you’re ready. That’s why the SRAM RED brakeset has been created with a host of wind-cheating features to make the brake body more aerodynamic, helping you keep your speed until the moment you’‘re ready. The patented AeroLink™ arm reduces frontal area while improving braking performance and modulation. The brake body, with updated graphics, has been sculpted to provide a sleek aerodynamic profile to the wind. Even the smallest details, like the barrel adjuster, point away from the wind. And to finish off the package, SwissStop Flash Pro pads come standard with the brake. It’s a better brake in every way.

  • AeroLink™ arm amplifies braking power while reducing frontal area
  • Compatible with SRAM RED eTap components
  • Lighter, aero pad retainers carry SwissStop Flash Pro pads standard
  • Aero design extends to the shape of the indexed four-position quick release
  • Wider clearance for modern wheelsets

Industry Reviews

SRAM RED “shifting snaps into gear superbly every time”

“In a world dominated by Shimano, it’s good to be able to ride SRAM Red again. It’s easy to forget just how slick SRAM’s top-end groupset actually is. The Double Tap shifting snaps into gear superbly every time, and the speed with which you can ship across the block and the smoothness of the trim-free Yaw front derailleur are both marvels. Oh, and it’s also the lightest groupset out there. Impressive.
