SRAM has just announced that they’re bringing some of the technology from their Guide brakes to new versions of the Code brakes. According to SRAM, the new Codes “use proven SRAM Guide design and technologies with a larger PiggyBack™ reservoir and 4mm bigger diameter pistons in the caliper to provide consistent and reliable power for all heavy duty applications. Bleeding Edge™ technology keeps maintenance as easy as it can be.”

SRAM says that these brakes are designed for aggressive riders who brake hard, or for slowing down heavier bikes and riders, whether they’re going uphill or down–aka, ebikes.
