Product Description
Level Ultimate Disc Brake by SRAM
We've been running SRAM's recently released Guide brakes on everything from four-inch 29ers to six-inch enduro sleds without any complaints, but with the release of the Level Ultimate Disc Brake, SRAM has come up with a solution to problem that we didn't even know we had. The Level Ultimate adapts many of the Guide Ultimate's features with a minimalistic design that sheds unnecessary bulk and drops from four pistons to two, marking a clear delineation between the Guide Ultimate's all-mountain and enduro designation and the Level Ultimate's XC and trail focus. While the Level Ultimate does weigh around 28g more than the XX1 model it's effectively replacing, the claimed weight of 318g for lever, caliper, and hardware knocks a full 42g off of the Guide Ultimate. The most weight-conscious XCers might be put off by the weight gain compared to XX1, but we contend that it's worth it for the Level's functional improvements.

It's also the only Level model to include a carbon lever and titanium hardware, features that account for a claimed 38g weight difference compared to the Level TLM, the Ultimate's closest in-house competitor. The lever action is also smoother, as the Ultimate upgrades the TLM's bushings to full-blown bearings, making it the only Level brake with bearings. Like with the all-mountain/enduro-specific Guide brake, the Level design features a host of improvements compared to the oft-maligned Avid Elixir. Among these is the notoriously finicky bleeding of the Elixir, and the Bleeding Edge redesign seen on the Guide brakes carries over to the Level. Bleeding Edge involves a complete re-imagination of the port and fluid path. It requires a specific adapter, but that adapter ensures a tight seal to keep air out and fluid...

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.
