Heavy Duty Braking Redefined
With Code RSC, SRAM tackled the problem of all-or-nothing, on/off braking. They built an authoritative 4-piston caliper and expanded the PiggyBack reservoir, giving Code fistfuls of power. With an expanded range of contact adjustments and pads, Code allows you to determine how and when you dispense that power.
The new Code uses 15mm and 16mm pistons — bumping up stopping power by 15% from previous models. Code has increased the lever's fluid reservoir by 30%, meaning braking power will feel the same at the start and end of every run — no matter how long and steep.
Sealed bearings at the lever pivot offer crisp, clean lever actuation while reducing finger fatigue over the duration of the ride. Some people like the instantaneous power of a short lever throw. Others prefer a longer throw. With Contact Point Adjust, riders can dial in their preferred hand position for engagement. It's a quick and easy way to customize the feel of your brakes without moving the pads.
Code's new caliper fluid circuitry has relocated the bleed port to the bottom of the caliper so all four piston bores can communicate. This way, during the bleed process, fluid naturally fills the caliper, resulting in a much more consistent bleed.
From e-MTB to Enduro and every downhill in-between, SRAM Code RSC is the standard for nuanced modulation and confident stopping power. They're your brakes. Tune them just right.
