    • PiggyBack Reservoir: The brake fluid reservoir on SRAM’s latest lever design is optimized for both performance and ease of use. The PiggyBack Reservoir offers a simple, failsafe way to manage brake fluid, and also allows for ambidextrous lever placement so you can switch your levers on the handlebar and run them moto without hassle.
    • Expandable Bladder: SRAM's new brake lever design includes a reshaped bladder that helps regulate and reduce air bubbles. The bladder is specifically shaped to evacuate air from the lever and push the fluid exactly where it's needed. The result is improved back-pressure relief, which produces dependable braking power and consistency.
    • 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.
    • TPC Plus (Timing Port Closure): A hydraulic brake’s timing port is the connection between the reservoir and the master cylinder bore. When the lever is squeezed, a cup seal passes this area and closes the port, which pressurizes the system. SRAM’s new timing port closure system, called TPC Plus, features durable seals and an ultra-smooth cylinder bore finish producing dependable braking power and consistency.
    • MatchMaker and MMX Compatible: Save weight and clutter on the bar with Matchmaker. It holds Avid levers, SRAM triggers, and various RockShox controls, all with one tidy, light, clamp, it is a dream come true for handlebar component footprint conservationists the world over. Available in two versions: Matchmaker X integrates the RockShox XLoc and is compatible with XX and X0 brakes. Standard Matchmaker is also available and works with any split-clamp design and RockShox® PushLoc.
    • Heat Shield: The stainless-steel heat shields break the thermal connection between the pad and caliper body, reducing caliper fluid temperature by about 20C even in the most extreme testing conditions.
