Sram Red Aero Link Brake Calipers

Your brakes shouldn‘t slow you down until you squeeze the levers. That‘s why the SRAM RED 22 Brakeset has been created with a host of wind-cheating features to make the brake body more aerodynamic, helping you keep your speed until the moment you‘re ready.
The new patented AeroLink arm reduces frontal area while improving braking performance and modulation. The brake body has been sculpted to provide a sleek aerodynamic profile to the wind. Even the smallest details, like the barrel adjuster, point away from the wind. And to finish off the package, SwissStop Flash Pro pads come standard with the brake. It‘s a better brake in every way.



  • Lighter, aero pad retainers carry SwissStop Flash Pro pads standard
  • Wider clearance for modern wheelsets
  • Aero design extends to the shape of the indexed four-position quick release, the bladed barrel adjuster, low-profile pinch bolts, and recessed spring tension adjusters
  • AeroLink arm amplifies braking power while reducing frontal area
  • Weight:240g
  • Technology Highlight(s):AeroLink
  • Material:Cold-Forged Aluminum Arms, Aero Designed, Pinch Bolt, SwissStop Pad Compound
  • AeroLink - The patented Multi-Link arm multiplies brake forces without having to squeeze the brake levers any harder. As a whole, it provides improved power, better control and increased modulation. All this packed in a very elegant and lightweight design.
Mr Dieffenbacher Beautiful. Easy to install and dial in.
Mr Caro Having Sram Force brakes previously these are a great improvement especially fitted with Swiss stop brake pads.
Mr Norton Installing etap on my winter bike so needed SRAM Red brakes. They perform great on my other bike. Only quibble is lack of centring adjustment my old Dura Ace brakes had. Merlin price good, delivery very prompt.
Mr Beadle Really great stopping power even on carbon wheels after upgrade from old Sram Force calipers. Set up is fiddly and the hose length really is critical. Having to chop sections off at a time otherwise the blocks are pushed into the rim when turning the bars left. Also any interference from other cable housing on the brake housing causes unwanted movement on the blocks. But - once sorted the difference in braking is night and day! 100g saving too.
Arvin Not the usual brake installation but as soon as it is dialled in, the brakes perform well with good modulation and very light too.
Mr Land Light, good modulation. If you are after a great set of brakes I would recommend SRAM.
Miss Smith Very nice product. I have them on my TT bike and can tell the difference between these and my old ones. Very efficient.
Miss Lilly Very strong braking; easy to fit but the cable outer length does appear to be critical- leave good time for this. very, very good braking, well made and super light and Merlin is by far the nets cheapest supplier by quite some margin.
Matt The best yet from SRAM. Super powerful and smooth braking action. 100% recommended
Mr Ellis Upgraded to these from the previous SRAM Red models which were good. These are even more brilliant, and seem to have better modulation and stopping power than the Dura Ace 7900s I have on my other bike. Great brakes especially at this price.
Mr Dobinson Been running TRP brakes and what a difference!! Very sharp braking and look great on the Venge!!
