SRAM's line of 2-piston XC / light-trail brakes have come a long way since the Avid days of old. The SRAM Level TLM Disc Brake has the power, feel, reliability, and serviceability to please even the most nitpicky rider. Its alloy lever is connected with a DirectLink™ design that eliminates any ambiguity in brake feel from very first moment you pull it back, and the Expandable Bladder helps prevent the buildup of air bubbles for consistent performance. At the caliper, the two-piston caliper provides smooth actuation, and it's heat shielded to keep the brake fluid about 20°C cooler to maintain power from start to finish. When it's time to bleed, SRAM has revised the fluid path and port as part of their Bleeding Edge™ technology to make it a fast and stress-free endeavor.
Claimed weight is 356 g when paired with 160 mm Centerline rotors (not included). Comes installed with organic-compound brake pads. Post-mount caliper. Levers are Matchmaker and Matchmaker X compatible. Bleeding Edge™ bleed adapter included.
