Deslackinators™ for SRAM® Guide, Code-R, Code RS, and G2-R Brakes


Categories: ,


Hate the slack in your SRAM Guide, Code-R, Code RS, or G2-R levers? Do you wish your MTB came with the higher-end SRAM® RSC brakes so that you had contact point adjustment? I did. It probably would have only cost the bike company another $30 to have used them, but then they would have a harder time selling their higher-end bikes – so, they cheaped out. Maybe you got used to them, or have never tried fully adjustable levers.

Now to fix that problem, you need $225 levers and $100 to install them. Sure, you could do it yourself, but you would need to buy the bleed kit and DOT 54 or 5.1 fluid. One way or another, it is $300-$500, or a lot of time.

I didn’t want to deal with all that, so I invented these – brake Deslackinators™ for SRAM® by Robert Silvers and Runaway Technology, Inc. You get a set of five different thicknesses (10 pieces total), and then just snap on the ones which give you the best feel without impeding free wheel-spin. My brakes went from terrible to better than my XT and XTR because I had the best of both worlds – close contact as well as perfect progression.

These do not work on Level-T brakes because they don’t have the reach-adjust screw that these snap on to.

Designed and manufactured in the USA. I make these myself using Stereolithograhy (SLA) 3D printing from engineering-grade liquid polymer. They are UV cured and then the washed in alcohol.

Ships to USA for $3.50. Canada, UK, Germany, and all other countries for $5.50.
