TRP Debuts Dash Sport Hydraulic Brakes, Updates Spyre Mechanical Calipers
The new TRP Dash Sport hydraulic disc brakes bring their tech down to a much more budget friendly price point.
It uses the same master cylinder internals as the Dash Carbon, but gets an all new cast MC body and more aggressively bent lever body.
The caliper is a two piece forged alloy design and comes with semi-metallic pads. Retail is $129 per wheel, about half the price of the Carbon.

The levers have a reach adjust dial, but no leverage ratio (aka Power Adjust) knob.
The bleed port faces almost straight up, and it has their twist-to-close opening, so you won’t lose any fluid or pressure at the end of the service process.
Since we had a chance to test them at the launch, TRP has increased the ramp curve by 3° on one side. The result is a more direct feel at the beginning and more total power. They also didn’t have the Spyre SLC on hand, which gets the carbon actuation arm (shown here). It retails for $110 per wheel and comes in at a claimed 146g. The standard Spyre is $80/wheel and weighs 154g.
