SRAM's initial Red HRD launch was something of an ill-fated endeavor that left droves of 'cross racers relying on their old, cantilever-equipped B-bikes when the winter chill kicked in and sent SRAM scrambling to recall fix the system. With the relaunch of its Red HRD Lever & Disc Brake Caliper, SRAM redeems itself and silences the ghosts of its hydro disc past and delivers confident, powerful braking with impeccable modulation that's been tested to handle all manner of heat, cold, sunshine, rain, mud, snow, and even the occasional rubber duck-filled moat a particularly sadistic race promoter may send your way.

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.
