SRAM Tweaks Mountain Mechanicals, Introduces Avid BB7S
In a similar move to the Avid BB7 SL road discs, Avid’s new BB7S Mountain disc brakes won’t blow you away with new features but they are an evolution of a popular brake. Gone is the gray and red color scheme in favor of a sleek black anodizing and black adjustment knobs. The hardware is new as well, with quality stainless bits replacing the black hardware on the previous version. Also like the BB7 SL, the BB7S Mountain brakes will include Avid’s HS1 disc rotors – though initial spec only lists 140mm and 160mm options.
Available in June, the $120 brake will ship with organic brake pads.
