We have a saying around the office that brakes only slow you down, and while we joke that taking everything fast is where it's at, there's something to be said for slowing down and enjoying things around you (or stopping yourself in your tracks before you book it into a bull-moose that's straddling the trail up ahead). SRAM's G2 Ultimate Disc Brakes offer top of the line stopping power for those moments when locking your wheels up matter, whether it's to avoid an encounter with nature's freight train, to rail the perfect line around a steep banked berm, or simply to take in stunning views from the summit when the wildflowers are in full bloom, and the sun is casting just the right alpine glow on everything. SRAM's G2 Ultimate brakes pair technology from the previous Guide Ultimate, like 4-piston caliper, and carbon fiber levers, but with a new S4 caliper, SwingLink lever cam, and carbon blade that keeps things featherweight so you can roll with the stopping power you need, on a brake that's sub 360-grams. As opposed to the basic Guide R brakes, the G2 utilizes SRAM's Swing Link lever. SwingLink utilizes a specially shaped cam that not only requires less travel and force to produce proportional amounts of pressure, it minimizes the "deadspot" of lever travel. Paired with the new cup-seal timing port closure system, this means that you receive perfect modulation immediately. Once the lever is squeezed, a cup seal swiftly passes this area and closes the port, pressurizing the system and forcing the pads to the rotor. The Ultimate's contact point adjustment feature is found just behind the lever attachment to the master cylinder, making it quick and convenient to dial in the brake's feel. This pairs up with the new 4-piston S4 caliper. The new S4 caliper design incorporates a redesigned seal as well as aluminum pistons to simplify setup, and improve consistency. The forged aluminum construction means long-term durability and ease of pad removal via the top-loading...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
