While many mountain bike brakes are getting extremely expensive, not all of the new developments are priced out of reach. In TRP’s case the company was showing their new Dash Sport which slots in under the Dash and Dash Carbon. Compared to the Dash, the Dash Sport uses a cast body with a forged lever blade for the radial mount brake lever. Priced at just $160 per wheel, the brake retains the tool free lever adjust and consistent performance of the other Dash models.

To keep cost down, the Sport uses the same two piece dual piston brake caliper as the Tektro Orion and Auriga Pro. The brake lever includes a split, hinged handlebar clamp and the brake weighs in at 197g per brake (no mounting hardware) and 113g for the 160mm rotor.
Shows with their Quadiem SL brake was TRP’s new two piece brake rotor. Called the TR-14, the rotor uses an aluminum carrier and has a claimed weight of 158g for the 180mm size. TR-14 Rotors will be included with all Quadeim SL brake and available separately.
