SRAM has updated it hydraulic disc brake systems with new flat mount calipers to bring it up alongside similar systems introduced by Shimano earlier this year. The new calipers will make it possible to use SRAM HydroR groupsets with the many different 2016 road bikes that look set to come with a flat mount interface, such as the Focus Izalco Max Disc.

The new caliper design will be introduced across most of the SRAM range, with versions available for Red, Force, and Rival, as well as for the new 1x single ring systems. Handily, SRAM has also used the same caliper design for both front and rear brakes.
