Official TRP Press Release


Press Release: TRP

Known for being the one momentous race of the season, the 2020 DH World Championships might just become the only race for many athletes this season. This shapes Leogang, Austria as the prized venue to dream about gold. Adding to the special occasion with custom bikes and custom parts, TRP is bringing a Special Edition Gold DH-R EVO brake for their sponsored athletes at Intense Factory Racing, Commencal 100%, The YT Mob, and Scott DH Factory. The discussion for customizing parts started early this year at test-camps before the proposed season even got underway.

“We picked up a great deal of excitement from our teams about special anodization's and colors. So we gave gold a try since all our teams are running golden suspension.” - Colin Esquibel, the TRP R&D Test Engineer

With the Gold DH-R EVO, the function and features are 100% the same as the Silver DH-R EVO that was launched in May of this year. This ensures the same power, the same modulation, and the same 223/2.3 mm rotor, now with a custom World Championship color fit for any dream build. The best part?

 Been running these DHR EVOs with 220 rotors on my Enduro for about 2 months.. Fantastic power and modulation.

For those who may be interested but are hesitant to try something different from SRAM/SHIMANO these are defiantly worth a try. I'd say the modulation is closer to SRAM Codes. Plenty of power, super easy to bleed, and the lever free stroke is much smoother/lighter compared to Codes (similar to the new Hayes Dominion in this regard). They have a little less initial bite compared to Saints or XTs, but I have not experienced any sort of wandering bite point or inconsistency of any kind.

 @DMoneyBike very interested in a comparison between these and the Hayes Dominion. I love the modulation, adjustibility, and lever feel of my SRAM codes, and have ran them on my last 3 bikes, but would love to try an alternative to SRAM - these are my top two choices. Tried hopes but didn't feel like they had the max power I was looking for as a big boy.

 @bigbrett: Which hopes did you try? I'm using E4's, and was curious how much more stopping power V4's had.
  • 4 0
 @jaydubmah: I tried E4s. But have heard even V4s also don't have the top-end stopping power some clydesdales (like myself) are looking for. Cannot confirm though
  • 1 0
 @bigbrett: I had v4s, they were strong but the trp evos are much stronger in my experience.
  • 1 0
 are they bled with mineral oil or Dot?
  • 1 0
 @saladdodger: TRP's use mineral oil.

I've got a set of 1 year old TRP Quadiems that replaced the Code R's that came on my bike. The levers are starting to develop a little wobble, but I fixed that today.

Great power, nice modulation and I don't get arm pump, even on rough 800m descents (could just be practise though). They're pretty easy to bleed and consistent. I'll buy more when I sell my bike.

 @bigbrett: I'm 180lbs (or 190 with gear) so maybe not quite as heavy, but these things have plenty of power. If you can fit 220 rotors I think you will be very happy

I have only ridden the new Hayes Dominions on a short trail ride, so I cant compare the max power to the DHR EVOs or Codes, but I was very impressed with them as well.
  • 2 0
 @bigbrett: Dominions are really next-level. The power, modulation, and feel are significantly better than the S brands. Absolutely nothing wrong with Codes, but the Dominions are super impressive.

 Is it '95 we are talking about hayes and tektro brakes as real possibilities again. glad to see some real competition in the market. these trps look real good if my saints ever die

 How do these compare, power-wise, to the TRP Quaddiems?
  • 6 0
 They are going to be much, much more powerful. Especially with a 223/2.3 mm rotor!
  • 1 0
 @TRPCyclingComponents:
Would you dare tell more?
With a 223mm rotor EVERY brake gains 10% power.
So... That size are the calipers? Slave area? Master area? What's the mechanical leverage?
  • 11 0
 @danimaniac: It really comes from the Master Cylinder area. The EVO uses a 9 mm MC Piston increasing the hydraulic leverage ratio (Brake Force = Pressure/Surface Area) over the caliper pistons. The increased amount of stopping power is also influenced by our High-Flow caliper as it brings in more oil wrapped in a 360 degree path around the caliper providing equal pressure on all 4 pistons with less fluid drag. This means more hydraulic pressure is being applied to the caliper when you pull that lever than ever before on a TRP Brake.

 @TRPCyclingComponents:
What is the slave area/what size pistons do you use? I really like the levers. But I must say I love the dominions I currently have.
  • 2 0
 I guess it's 16mm diameter on the caliper?
  • 3 0
 @danimaniac: You are correct!
  • 1 0
 @TRPCyclingComponents: thank you for the clarification.
It's really an interesting brake. Good job.
  • 1 1
 @TRPCyclingComponents: "Force = Pressure/Surface Area" ...are you braking the laws of physics?
  • 2 0
 @Highlined: or define new ones. Anyway... Smaller master cylinder means bigger force down low.
That's good. Still smaller output area than dominions/magura mt/cura...
P=F/area... And that's why bigger surface area is great. Pressure generated up top by your hands. The leverage is higher with a greater area on the rotors.

It shows they know they don't have the strongest brakes when they have to tell you it's superstrong with a 223 rotor (that I can use with every other brake, too)

 @TRPCyclingComponents: oh come on TRP!!! I literally just bought a pair of DHR-Evo and you guys release these now....
  • 1 0
 @TRPCyclingComponents: Do these have the same lever profile as the Quadiems? I would probably use those brakes if it wasn’t for the square lever profile. Thought about taking a file to a pair but stuck with SRAM in the end. However, SRAM levers are slowly getting shorter with more arc than the perfect lever profile they produced a decade ago!
  • 2 0
 @jclnv: They have a brand new lever blade, much different than the old Quadiems. They are less square, have a stronger knuckle and a more pronounced hook at the end with drilled dimples. They will be the same length but will be much more rounded at the finger contact to provide a much nicer feel and look!
