SRAM Releases HydroHC For eTap

Press Release


Control. It’s what makes speed possible. The less time you spend slowing down, the more time you can spend enjoying your hard-earned speed. Hydraulic road disc brakes (HRD) offer the ultimate in braking modulation and control under any conditions—allowing you to descend faster, safer, and with more confidence.


Introducing the Sram HydroHC hydraulic disc brake platform, found exclusively on Sram Red eTap. Sram HydroHC builds on the successes of our HydroR and Level brakesets. Regardless of hand size or brake setup preferences, HydroHC levers are custom tunable for a perfect fit and confidence-inspiring control. The platform offers Sram’s renowned reach adjust and new, independent contact point adjustment, allowing complete customization of your braking. This adjustability is paired with the most ergonomic hoods available to deliver class-leading comfort, fit, and braking performance. All in the name of true advancement.
