Aw, I hate being wrong.. forgiveness?

 

"Also spotted in the background of Hilton's bike is an as-yet-unannounced four-piston Avid hydraulic disc brake — either a successor to the current Code or a more powerful variant of the company's versatile Elixir range. As compared to a conventional two-piston setup, four smaller pistons would theoretically allow for more carefully tuneable pressure distribution on the pad backings along with more efficient heat transfer from pad to caliper for improved cooling." - Bike radar

I hope it doesn't leak, have you seen what brake fluid does to a white paint job? Or do they use mineral oil like sissies?

The RD and caliper is, IMHO, clearly a Me2! strategy by SRAM. But honestly, I wish they would stop with this mad race where product cycles are one year or less, but in reality, the new sticker price is justified by a color change and new coating...:rolleyes:

Maybe you should Intense-ify your search for some more classified info.
