Formula R1 Disc Brake Set

Great performance and a feathery weight make the R1 the premier XC race brake on today's market. Still, the R1 generates more than enough power and performance for an All Mountain or Enduro use. The forged master cylinder body and caliper provide increased modulation, braking power and durability, while the R1's patented caliper piston system increases fluid capacity in the caliper providing stability and fade resistance even on the longest descents.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ottima modulazione di frenata Mi hanno risolto un grosso problema di risonanza al carro posteriore su telaio in alu da 29 creato da Avid Elixr 3 ( 200 mm) che nonostante la sostituzione dei dischi con semiflottanti della braking, diverse spessorazioni, pasta di rame etc... non ero riuscito ad eliminare. Ottima modulabilità della frenata, Nota: con un poco di attenzione lo spurgo si può fare anche senza smontare la pompa dal manubrio. 22 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesomeness at your fingertips! I have a set of these on my Lapierre Zesty 514 and have ridden a few other bikes with different set ups. These are fantastic. The levers are just the right shape for ease of use when plumeting down any technical DH, they're super light and have brilliant stopping power. I would rate these over anything else I've tried. 22 August 2013

Difference(s) between R1 and R1S?

Someone asked about this and CRC customer service answered that R1s has TFRA and R1 does not. But your product descriptions say that both 2012 models have TFRA. Is this correct? Also, is there a weight difference between the two models?

Answer: 
The R1s is an OEM version initially designed for the Specialized brand. It combines the R1 lever (with TFRA) and the RX caliper. The R1 uses the R1 lever (with TFRA) and the R1 caliper, which has a slightly larger piston. There is a very slight weight difference between the systems (R1s is around 70g heavier than the R1).
