Shimano isn't the only major player in the road brake category. SRAM has really stepped up their game. SRAM''s Force line of components is impressive and these brakes are no different. They come stock with Swiss Stop brake pads that are backed up by strong cold forged brake arms. SRAM''s new dual pivot system of braking increases braking power and precision.

asked by: a guest I'm confused. What does 39-49mm Brake Reach mean?
I have a HED Ardennes wheelset. I think they're 25mm. Are these compatible?
anwered by: canteau The arm reach is determined by the relationship of the brake mounting hole on the frame/fork is to the rim braking surface. These brakes will work on most road bikes designed for 23 or 25mm tires, if you have a bike that was made for fenders or 28 or 32mm tires you may need a brake caliper with a longer reach.
