Updated: Cascade Components is Developing a Brake Caliper with SRAM Internals

Feb 2, 2021
by Daniel Sapp  

Cascade Components, based in the Pacific Northwest, are known for manufacturing aftermarket linkages for a slew of trail and enduro bikes with the aim of providing more options for riders to further tune their bikes to their liking.

Pinkbike's eagle-eyed Social Media Wizard spotted their not so subtle Instagram story which shows a very nicely machined brake caliper quickly stopping a spinning wheel on a bike in a stand. Although the story will disappear after 24 hours, we captured it here to live on for speculation.


The caliper is obviously a four-piston and it appears to be made for a SRAM brake system. Our best guess, judging by its shape and the rotor it's paired with would be the G2 Guide which has, at times lacked some power although, on closer inspection, the pads seem to look more like those from SRAM's Code brake. It's notable that it appears to be using stock brake housing and fittings with the caliper itself being the only noticeable difference.

We reached out to Cascade Components and their response was:

bigquotesWe can confirm that we are definitely working on a caliper. It's not a just for fun one-off. The speculation is mostly on track. It does use Code pads along with a bunch of other SRAM parts. We are more than familiar with breaking bikes mid-trip and needing to find parts quickly so making consumables easy to get ahold of is pretty important for us. This caliper will always be compatible with SRAM internals, although it may end up coming with some higher end bits namely to help with performance. This is still in development, of course, so we don't want to release too many details just yet. We've got some interesting concepts we are exploring and don't want to get hopes up in case they don't pan out.Cascade Components

From what we see, it looks promising!

 SRAM is so shitty the aftermarket industry has to re-make their products for them. I'll be sticking with Shimano and their patent pending migrating bitepoint and Hiker Awareness System (rattling brake pads) thank you very much.

 if your pads rattle, don't you just bend the retaining wire to hold them better?

 @Buggyr333: What problems? I have had 5 sets of Level and Code brakes on different bikes and only had one issue about 5 years ago that was quickly covered under warranty.

The wandering bite points, howling and tendency to be overly grabby are all continuing issues I frequently read about Shimano here...but I don’t read much about SRAM brakes anymore.
  • 3 0
 @Reno233:
Sticky pistons, time consuming bleed procedure, pad clearance, also have seen plenty that howl/gobble still, noises I don't have with shimano personally.
Also problems with bad lever seals from years ago, which aren't as much of a problem with modern ones, but as a shop mechanic, I can tell you that they're still out there, and I still have to do a fair amount of lever replacements. Most shops I know of do a hell of a lot more Sram brake warranties than Shimano.
As far as grabby brakes, IMO grab=power. Learn to modulate with your fingers, that grab will always be on tap. Vs Sram (more directed at guides and levels) you get all this modulation, and not enough power when you need it.
Full disclosure I prefer Sram over Shimano for everything except brakes. I hate shimano as a company far more than Sram, but shimano brakes are just that much better IMO

 They look good. I wish it was specced on more bikes so I could try them out on a test ride easier.I would pay for a whole bike demo just to check them out if it was an option. I won't buy them until I have a chance to test myself though.
  • 7 1
 There are so many good brake options on the market right now, I don't get why they would enter this space... sure there are supply shortages right now, but there won't be by the time a new product like this is commercialized. The only thing I can think of is as a "hop-up" caliper with larger slave pistons than stock for more power from the same levers. It would fit CC's MO, but levers might get pretty spongy if the lever and hose aren't designed (i.e. stiff enough) for that increased leverage.

 If it's a good product, it will be nice to have a brake option made locallt by mountain bikers in the PNW. Local jobs, local knowledge and brake bling......all as long as performance is at the top end. But knowing what I know about Cascade Components, they won't release something that's not really good.

 The tricky part is doing that without putting the bite point somewhere inside the handlebar. That said, obviously a small increase in piston size could yield a little more power while still being useable. And I'd be interested in that!

 In all my experience, i used Sram/Avid brakes, best modulation ever, if you need stopping power get a good rotor and choose brake pads that match your stile...Servicing is easy as well there spares, never had any serious issues been riding mostly proper DH...of course i tried Shimano Saints, XT's and Zee , but was not impressed..
just 4 the record first i came on juice's than elexirs x9, than Guide RS and still on Guide's, also tried Code and Code v2..
I know hoe to service those and also serviced Shimano... sorry to say but Shimano brakes are horrible in design and servicing...the only plus is thay use mineral oil and people are very pre-convinced to use them instead...

 Their links change the leverage ratios/travel of the frames they are designed for and improve strength and rigidity, all while being beautiful.. But in your eyes its just extra money and weight?
Pretty boring outlook you have.
  • 9 7
 Ya, never realized how much weight their links add until that recent Vital review. Does seem like they have a good product... but the weight added is substantial. Probably not too bad if you're running an air shock, but if you're already running coil... your bike is going to be very heavy. I'm no weight weenie, I run coil and a 38... but at some point you have to draw the line.
  • 8 0
 Could just be a more powerful version. The Code master cylinder is solid, lever feel is really nice, but some would like a bit more power out of them. Like with their linkage, it would just be an option for those looking for that little extra power. Put 4x17mm pistons or even 2x17 and 2x18 and you would get a significant power boost. As you can get the Code lever to have close to zero free-throw, the increased free throw of the bigger pistons wouldn't be too bad. Even better, if they offer such a caliper, but with 2 sets of seals to either use mineral oil or DOT, would be nice to mix with other brands of master cylinder.

 Your telling brake calipers internals are bike trip replaceable. I can smell the let’s build it as cheap as possible but seem high end because we put a line of g code to leave marks price . Why spend the time designing a new caliper that is limited to existing design constraints. Go big or go home. You only can make yokes so long before you have your own product. Stop with the toe dipping and jump in.

 I think they make their own internals. They made the internal compatible with srams stuff. but it says that they have their own high end stuff...

 @Cascade Components: If your reading this, a one piece caliper would be greatly appreciated. Power improvements would be welcomed with open arms.

 Nah. I reckon this is just some custom fun for people who work there. They put it up to drive interest in the brand. Looks like you guys bit.
