The powerful Code RSC disc brake from SRAM is built for high performance and heavy-duty applications and sets new standards in modern brake design and braking power. The brake will even stay cool on winding, steep downhill rides with gravel bends, as well as on demanding trails in extreme terrain. the Code RSC offers everything a real downhill disc brake needs, without making your forearms throb: A four-piston brake caliper with a larger piston diameter, an ergonomic lever for progressive bite point adjustment and excellent braking performance.
The brake combines the advantages of the proven SRAM Guide architecture with the pioneering technologies of the top-class model and optimizes them for powerful and precisely controlled braking. Excellent heat management reduces the risk of brake fade caused by friction or vapour, thanks to larger fluid reservoirs and heat shields between the sintered brake pads. This increases robustness and makes SRAM’s Code RSC with constant and reliable braking performance the perfect speed stopping device for cyclists who ride harder, faster and longer.
