SRAM Introduce New Level Brakes

by 1

… that’s not an adjective in this case; Level is the model name.

SRAM send us news that they’re releasing a new range of XC-oriented brakes, all named Level. They range from the basic model at £53 per end, to the Level Ultimate at £249, which has all kinds of bling such as a carbon lever running on bearings, and titanium fixings. Those prices include rotors, and availability is this March. Between the basic Level and the Ultimate, there’s a whole range that you can read more about on the SRAM website.

The levers are ambidextrous, the adjusters are hidden away from grime, and all except the entry level Level are Matchmaker X compatible. Details on it are scant, but their new trademarked “BLEEDING EDGE™” system apparently makes bleeding them easier than ever, due to a new fluid path, porting and a dedicated bleed adapter. Always nice to have a faffy job made easier.

See below for images, and a few riding photos, because why not?






David started mountain biking in the 90’s, by which he means “Ineptly jumping a Saracen Kili Racer off anything available in a nearby industrial estate”. After growing up and living in some extremely flat places, David moved to Yorkshire specifically for the mountain biking. This felt like a horrible mistake at first, because the hills are so steep, but you get used to them pretty quickly. Previously, David trifled with road and BMX, but mountain bikes always won. He’s most at peace battering down a rough trail, quietly fixing everything that does to a bike, or trying to figure out if that one click of compression damping has made things marginally better or worse. The inept jumping continues to this day.
