The Evolution of Better Braking

It’s been stated, demonstrated, and proven but put simply SRAM’s road hydraulic systems provide better braking control and performance in all conditions.

For 2015 we will have four new complete hydraulic road (HydroR) groupsets featuring a broad complement of hydraulic braking options for both rim and disc brake bikes. Each delivering on the promise of braking confidence and security that brings speed control and stability to a new level.


New Lever Body - SRAM’s all new lever body design refines the external shape of our HydroR shifter body. The new shape improves the internal architecture and material placement around the reservoir and master cylinder bore, which is all about improving consistency and performance.

New Bleed Port - SRAM’s new bleed port design is all about a simpler interface for setting up and bleeding the brakes.

New Master Cylinder - At the core of the new MY15 hydraulic road brakes is the new master cylinder piston, with incredible amounts of testing behind it, improves performance and consistency, especially in extreme temperatures.

New High Capacity Bladder - The new high capacity bladder is the primary fluid compensating device for pad wear, and we have improved its ability to do its job through its improved compliance and ability to evacuate the reservoir.

New Caliper Spring - The new caliper spring is a small part that plays a big role, SRAM’s new spring spreads the pads more effectively and maintaining consistent rollback and contact point.

New Shift Paddle - With the new paddle design we have reduced the material on the blade, it lightens the shift lever and provides better finger clearance, a nice feature in colder cyclocross season temperatures when thicker gloves are required.



Beyond all the refinements SRAM’s HydroR collection inherits all the features, benefits, and technologies of the original.
