When Aaron Gwin started to run TRP brakes, we all knew there would need to be some serious stoppers coming to the team. And now, they're here.
The latest set of brakes from TRP have just landed in the AMB offices. Designed with four-time downhill World Cup Overall Champion Aaron Gwin during his successful 2016 season, the G-Spec Quadiem is feature-packed. The caliper has been upgraded with composite/steel hybrid pistons and machined with cooling grooves – providing improved heat dissipation for great performance during hard-on-the brakes descents.
Internal caliper pad tolerance is tighter, removing free-play, for further improving braking efficiency.
The distinctive new drilled lever blades offer greater feedback and security, and the indexed tool-free reach adjustment feature makes fine tuning lever reach easier than ever. To top it all off, the G-Spec Quadiem is made from forged aluminum that is then CNC’d, polished, and anodized for an elegant, long lasting finish.
We have this set going to one of our crew for a long term test to look at setup, braking power, modulation and ongoing maintenance. Stay tuned.
