  • . The Force 22 Road Disc Brake combines the outstanding performance of SRAM‚Äôs 11-Speed mechanical gearing with the power and reliability of hydraulic disc brakes. The force 22 lever features a revised design to offer increased braking force with less rider effort Fade-free Braking. As these levers use high-quality DOT 5.1 brake fluid, you can head into the mountains with even more confidence and you‚Äôll be able to take on those long descents without worrying about your brakes Advanced Shifting. Some of SRAM‚Äôs best shifting technologies have been packed into the Force 22 lever, including Reach Adjust, DoubleTap, and ZeroLoss. This means that this lever offers you a personalised setup, minimal user effort and lightning quick shifts Features: Material:¬†Carbon Fibre (lever) Forged Aluminum (disc caliper and shift lever) Stainless Steel (hardware) Optimised stopping power and modulation for road use 18mm pistons Road specific caliper and piston ratio Fully sealed system = no contamination Finish:¬†Ice grey anodised Mounting: Flat mount no offset Recommended Rotor:¬†Centerline (140 and 160mm, not included) Pad Type:¬†Steel-backed organic Fluid:¬†DOT 5.1 Compatibility:¬†SRAM RED 22, Force 22, and Rival 22 Speed: 11-Speed Shift Inner Cable Length: 2200mm Shift Outer Cable Length: 2050mm Hose Length: 1800mm Weight:¬†471g per wheel (lever, caliper, hose and 160mm centerline rotor)Technologies: DOT 5.1‚Ñ¢: Heat is an enemy of any brake system, so advancements in heat management mean advancements in your ride. SRAM found that in their brake systems, DOT 5.1 takes almost three times longer to boil than DOT 4, thus allowing flawless, fade-free performance in even more extreme conditions. DoubleTap¬Æ:¬†DoubleTap¬Æ¬†makes changing gears easier and faster, eliminating the cumbersome and awkward engagement associated with two-lever systems. DoubleTap handles up and downshifts in one short, sweeping motion, with minimal effort and maximum comfort no matter where you are on the bars. With short, rapid taps you will shift up through the shifting range and downshifting comes via a longer sweep of the lever (in the same inward direction you upshift, but to an ergonomically maximised 15¬∞ angle) Reach Adjust: Brake lever fit and feel is a personal thing. Riders have individual positioning preferences, as well as unique hand sizes and finger lengths. Reach Adjust makes it easy to adjust your lever for maximum one-finger control for everyone. ZeroLoss‚Ñ¢:¬†ZeroLoss simply means, well, zero loss‚Äîwhen you push on the lever, for an upshift or down shift, the cable is engaged instantly‚Äîzero loss of movement. There is no middle ground where you’re waiting for the shift to come. Gear changes are instant and precise Connectamajig‚Ñ¢:¬†The Connectamajig‚Ñ¢ is the coupling hose that makes the initial set-up of SRAM road hydraulic brake systems easy, fast and convenient for the factory, craft builder, or dealer. The intimidation of hydraulics is gone with a push and a twist, it’s just that easy. Connectamajig is available to bike manufacturers and works for SRAM‚Äôs RED 22 and S-700 hydro systemsBuy¬†SRAM Components¬†from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
