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.

    Great Power, Modulation, and Feel.

    I was a bit dubious of all the hype behind SRAM Code brakes. I've always ridden Hope, but started to feel that their quality wasn't quite what it used to be. Much to my surprise, the Code RSC's are a revelation. I am impressed with their adjustability, feel, modulation, power. I can brake much later with confidence. Set up was easy. I liked them so much I now have them on both of my mountain bikes.

    Best SRAM brake

    I have Code RSC brakes on 3 MTBs. I just purchased an e-fatbike from Norco that came with Code R brakes. The Norco is a heavy bike that over powers the stock brakes. The RSCs handle the Norco very well.

    A easy upgrade for those with G2 or Guide brakes
    by Anonymous

    I spent the 2022 season struggling on a set of Sram G2 R brakes. After having to end days early from arm pump and replacing pads multiple times in one season I decided my weight and style of riding was more suited to the Code RSC. I wish I would have made the switch earlier! The Code's perform flawlessly and I'm able to ride full days without any fade or hand fatigue.

    Adjustable power
    by Gnome

    This is the best Sram mtb brake. I have a good friend who works in a bike shop, and can have any brake he wants. The brakes he wants, and the brakes I want are Code RSCs. I am replacing the Code RS that came on my heavy ebike with RSCs. My ebike has RSC, my enduro bike has RSC, and my downcountry bike has G2. If you plan on going fast downhill, then RSC is the way to go. I very much like the adjustable contact point.
